CAbi Fashions for Moms

Digging into the closet to come up with an outfit for today's style session. And I'm lucky I got in this photo shoot before the great blizzard of '15 that is headed to New York City. Since January is a time where we are all recovering from the holidays and few of us are shopping with gusto, I thought I'd show you and outfit that's making the most of what I've got on hand.

get your boots shined

It started with the boots. These riding boots are from 2000. I got them when I was working at Ralph Lauren on Madison Avenue. I've had them resoled a few times, but the key thing is treating the leather. A few times a winter I head to my local shoe-care spot and have them cleaned and shined. And I have a kit at home too for quick buff-ups. I'd say they are looking pretty good 15 years later.

Then there's the leggings. I'm a fan of the Lyssé legging. This pair has a faux leather front and are fitted with a hi-waist. To brighten up all the browns, I added a paisley top from CAbi Clothing and their coin necklace. CAbi is one of those brands that can be constantly reinvented. Mix seasons past with the latest finds and it all seems to work.
