What I Wore: Dinner and a Movie and my DV by Dolce Vita "Pilar" Bootie Review

This past weekend we went out to dinner and a movie with some friends.  I wanted to wear something that was layered since I knew we'd be in a movie theater at the end of the night.  Why are movie theaters always freezing??  It was a good thing I wore a long sleeved sweater because we actually ended up having dinner on the patio at The Cheesecake Factory and it was anything but warm by the end!  I pulled out an outfit that I've basically worn before, but changed a few things up to make it a tad different:

Hiking Ruffles Cardigan-Anthropologie/ Paradise Ascending Top-Anthropologie/ Rockstar Skinny Jeans-Old Navy (black)/ Chiseled Wedges-Anthropologie/ Torsade Necklace/ Anthropologie/ Double Hoop Earrings-Banana Republic/ Flower Bud Ring-J Crew/ Marc by Marc Jacobs "Henry Chrono" Watch-Piperlime

For anyone who's curious, my DV by Dolce Vita "Pilar" booties were delivered a few days ago and I think I kinda love them!  They are SO crazy comfortable which was a major plus, and the color is a great neutral to work with.  I took them in my regular DV size 8.5 (for reference, I'm typically a size 8.5-9 in most shoes).  I'm still working on familiarizing myself with how to wear them best...they feel a bit odd as I've never worn this type of shoe before, but it'll be a fun little step outside my box.  So far I've found that I like them best with ankle length denim so I rolled up my jeggings a little in this picture to show you. 

Do you own this style of bootie?  How do you wear yours?  I'm open to suggestions, as always!


  1. Those booties are too cute. The color should go with a lot of different things so very versatile indeed. Love your dinner & a movie outfit. Your new birthday watch is a nice addition.

  2. I own tons of booties, and I either wear them with tights or with my skinnies rolled up. Love the rockstars with them too - have you checked out their annual $19 sale? I also recommend the Report Marks, or Steven by Steve Madden Pembrook boots - I wear them with nearly everything & have 4 colors. May have to get these boots. :).

  3. Both outfits are adorable! Your new booties are great and will go with so much!

  4. I have a pair of booties like that from BC footwear that are so comfy and easy to wear, but so far I've only worn them with flares, so they are kind of covered up.

  5. Love both outfits! I don't own any booties yet so sorry I'm not much help there. But I think those are super cute and love the color, they'd go with so much.
