Elements of Susie's Style
Susie’s thigh-high riding boots are on trend and perfect for the season. The high-rise style helps elongate her legs and create a casual yet fashionable look. Not only are they “in”, they are comfortable and perfect for an all day shopping spree.
2. A Simple Yet Bold Pattern
The pattern of Susie’s shirt really completed her look. The print is simple with an animal print flare and acts as the bold statement piece in her outfit.
This purse has many compartments, yet is still small and worn close to the body - the perfect mix of style and function. A small purse like this is great for a shopping day, especially in a crowded place. Not only is it safer and easier to keep an eye on, it takes up less room and provides more arm space for tons of shopping bags!
