Winter in Los Angeles does not exist. This Wednesday, it will be 90 degrees! Insane.. But, we are all eager to start shifting our wardrobes into winter appropriate outfits. To start it off, leather ankle boots .. SO NECESSARY! Warm winter or cold winter, it is a must-have item. I got these from Zara and even though I was skeptical at first, I definitely love them now. I believe buying shoes that are expensive are definitely an investment and are worth every penny. BUT, you can also find ones that are just as good for a lower price. These are great for every day wear. I paired it with my favorite TopShop jeans and simple black long sleeve shirt. I also love mixing velvet and leather, so chic!
