Summer 2014 was a blast. Lots of weddings and travel and fun. Here are some of my favorite #tessdressed moments.IMG_0371

Aconcagua boots from GiBlack, Banana Republic skirt, thrifted Ralph Lauren linen shirt, my sister’s Gap jacket. It’s good to have a nice staple black skirt that is appropriate for work but still cute- I found this in the petites section on sale and never get tired of wearing it.

The leaves are falling in Denver and we’ve even had our first snow! I’ve taken a bit of a fall break this past week but am back in action with (what else) my new favorite boots. GiBlack is making these great boots in Menorca and importing them by way of NYC to us! They come in grey as well and are super comfortable and so southwestern looking! I have a hard time finding good riding boots that fit many occasions, and that fit over pants. As you well know, I like to have a staple standard shoe or boot and wear it with everything. These fit the bill! Worn with Mossimo jeans from Target, a thrifted cashmere sweater from Ann Taylor, Madewell tank, 50 Dresses green silk scarf.

New boots!

GiBlack in NYC has some amazing new Spanish pony boots in stock now! Imported from amazing boot factories in Menorca, they are so comfortable and really very unique from the other fall offerings I’ve seen. Check out the FB page for photos of the boots (they have black too, as well as some other great styles!) or the website for more info. Yes, this is the same company importing my favorite ABARCAS! Spanish footwear, all the way. Worn with thrifted wool skirt and shirt and an awesome thrifted silk blazer/jacket.
