OOTD: Loft Henley Two Pocket Blouse + Stella & Dot Scarf Giveaway

With one of the first winter chills making its' way to Miami, I was eager to bring out these tall boots and coat.  Of course, my coat is 3/4 sleeves, and the blouse I'm wearing in these pictures is basically sheer, but  that's how we do it here!  

I also thought it was a great time to run a new giveaway from Stella & Dot.  You may not know this, but S&D has branched out into the scarf, wallet and handbag market.  This scarf was provided to me by S&D for this giveaway and I couldn't be happier; it's so cute, with its tropical parrot print and vibrant colors.  

These boots were part of my Kansas vacation prep, got them on, a really affordable website that I normally use for work shoes, (since I plow through a pair every three months). I usually stick to buying Nine West pumps from their site, but I saw these boots and thought that the price couldn't be beat.  Of course, I would love a pair of gorgeous Tory Burch boots, with gold hardware (hint, hint), but for the price of half of one TB boot, I bought two pairs!

My boyfriend and The Fashionable ESQ's VP takes all of my photos.  I recently linked him to this blog post from the blog Not Dressed Like Lamb (check her out, she's creative and has a ton of personality that translates into her photos) for photo tips on how to shoot photos in sunlight.  The article was very helpful, albeit, lengthy, but definitely filled with great tips if you want to improve the look and feel of your pictures.  I loved how he was able to capture the light behind me in these shots.

Wearing this gold cuff by Kenneth Cole that I got from Piperlime, I love chunky and bold jewelry.  

Lately I've been mixing brown and black, and I'm slowly getting used to the idea.  I used to never combine these colors before, mostly because I barely owned anything brown, but now I've been branching out - and I like the color palette of this outfit a lot.  What do you guys think?
