David and I are in Tuscany now and we are renting the most adorable house in the middle of vineyards while the homeowners are out of town for only $25 a night! I don’t know why they rent it so cheap but it is to our benefit so I won’t complain! It has been such a good week because we got to kind of have a chill week here and in Florence – I love that it is so quaint and quiet here and less tourists. Last night David was saying how its so cool that everywhere we go just feels like home 🙂 despite missing Chauncey so much and having weekly episodes of crying and looking at pictures – all I need is my husband and it feels like home to me (anyone now thinking of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days? if you are, I love you for knowing your soundtracks to chick flicks) but I know that is so so cheesy but so true and I love it.

On another note, I know I already posted this outfit but I had so many pics from that day I split them up! Cara and I went and got our hair done by TRESemme before the Cynthia Rowley presentation and we both LOVED how it turned out!! They of course used all TRESemme products which I loved loved loved.

I also have a GIVEAWAY today for one of you to win a pair of shoes from ShoeMint!! These booties I am wearing in this post and in part one of this post, here, are my absolute favorites right now! Especially with fall coming we could all use a pair of chic booties. All of their shoes are designed by Rachel Bilson and Nicole Chavez (love them both) and manufactured by Steve Madden!

To enter to win your pair of ShoeMint shoes, go to the ShoeMint website and sign up! (for free) and then comment back here letting me know which pair of shoes you would pick! Good luck! xo (THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED)

More all black I love..

  1. I’m trying to figure out what shoes/boots to wear with leather pants. Do you feel it’s ok to wear black leather booties or heels with black leather pants? Or would you normally not do leather on leather?

    1. I think leather is one of those classic things that can totally be mixed together! In fact, I would probably wear a leather jacket, leather pants, and leather booties all in one outfit!! I definitely think it gives off that biker chick vibe, but I love that! Or if you are worried that you might look like too much leather then throw on a white cotton tee (or any color) to kind of contrast the leather and soften up the look!

  2. I’m already signed up to Shoemint and I’m totally in love with the Jane booties! So beautiful!

  3. The sienna booties in black have been sitting in my cart for a few days now.. They are my current fav! Love your blog and style!

  4. Hi Amber ,

    I look forward to your blog posts every week. You have great style!!! And also you guys make such a nice couple, and seem to have the time of your life 🙂

    My favorite booties are the Sienna , I love how you style them, they’re sooo nice ! my next go-to booties 😉

    Keep doing what you do 😉 xo

  5. Always such a stunner, you are! I have been eyeing the ‘Shoemint’ Carlee & signed up, of course. Keep on keeping on, Amber! XO

  6. Hey Amber! 🙂 love following Europe and NYFW through your blog. I signed up for Shoemint and I have been eyeing those Sienna booties….so chic! 🙂 I would be thrilled to win!

  7. the boots you are wearing!!! I can’t have any logos on my clothes or shoes for work and would love to have these for work!

  8. I love the Melissa Campana ZIg Zag in Silver!


  9. Thank you for the giveaway! I’m signed up with ShoeMint and I would love the Sienna boots in black.

  10. Okay. Like Stop. Those Sienna shoes may have made my heart stop. Is it sad that I have a such a bad shoe obsession. I find myself going to study Economics and five minutes later I am browsing for boots and heels…. it isn’t healthy! The booties like the Sienna’s are my new addiction… but as a poor college student I live through my pinterest closet and now my own. Also you the cutest thing! I was actually talking to Kaitlyn Vanhoff about how I love your blog, and she raved about how much of a great person you are!
    I would love to win those Sienna’s!
    Enjoy Europe as I cry about how jealous I am! 🙂

  11. Looks like you and Cara had the best time at NYFW!! Love both your blogs.

    I have actually never used shoemint and have only heard of it a few times before this, so I appreciate you sharing! I think Fanny in navy blue are a great day/night transitional shoe. I would probably wear them with tan skinnies and a white top.

  12. Just signed up for the website and oh my gosh, shoe heaven! Too bad I’m a poor college student. The shoe I would pick is the Melissa Campana Zig Zag in silver. I am dying for a good pair of flats to wear during my clinicals in classrooms.

  13. signed up on ShoeMint & I would choose your booties!
    why? because I already have booties with silver details but not with golden details and since I’m a metallic-lover, they would fit my collection perfectly 😀
    crossing my fingers!
    PS: thank you for this awesome giveaway!
    xx Lyn

  14. Hey Amber!

    The boots I would get is the Sienna in black. They are amazing. Such a fan of your blog and getting to live vicariously through you, with all the fabulous things you get to do!

It is my dream to travel the world and especially Europe! Somehow I studied abroad in Australia and have visited my brother in Thailand, but not made it to Europe yet. And it’s so close from NY, but one day and hopefully soon.

    I’ve been a member of ShoeMint for a little while and just love their styles and recommendations! I am dying for the Shiva in pink, but I guess so is everyone else since they’re sold out 🙁 I also love the Bess in pink and lavender. Fingers crossed! Enjoy the rest of your Eurotrip!

I LOVE how you put your outfits together, casual items (like tops) with heels and cute pants, AH just amazing and you always make it look so effortless and classy at the same time!! Thanks for always linking everything because I would DIE if I couldn’t find some of the things you wear in pictures 😉 (Side note: I have a 2 year old puppy and when I go on trips I cry all the time because I miss him and use to think he would forget me, but don’t worry he wont! He’ll just love you even more).

Hoping one day, my man and I can jump over to Europe and explore new cultures together. Keep the great pictures coming! Now on to this amazing giveaway….as much as I love the Sienna bootie, lately I’m a sucker for the flat ankle bootie that is becoming quite the classic. Lane in brown has caught me eye…I hope they find their way onto my feet very soon!

  107. Hi Amber –
    I just have to say that you and Cara are the most beautiful people (inside and out). I love following both of your blogs, along with Jessica’s. I’ve been following Jessica for years now; her photos are amazing. She’s a doll and so fun! We were lucky enough to have her shoot our wedding over the past weekend. I can’t wait to see our pics.
    And Chauncey… I die. He’s so cute!!!
    Hope you’re having fun in Europe. Italy is beautiful! If you haven’t been you must at least stop by Cinque Terre while you’re In Italy. It’s one of my favorite places.
    Anyway, MUST enter for the shoemint giveway… I would DIE for the Emma booties in maroon. The maroon is my favorite fall color, so classic.

  108. Hi Amber,

    I started following you about 6 months ago and it was a good decision, I use so many of your hair tutorials and outfits for inspiration daily. So thanks for that!

    Also I would get the Caroline flats in brown from Shoemint, I have been needing a simple yet classic pair of flats and I feel like loafers express all that and more. I also really love your black booties, but I just bought a pair of black booties so I figured not. haha.

    Thanks again!

  109. Hey Amber

    It sounds like you are having an amazing time! I love reading your travel posts!
    I signed up for shoe mint and I would love the Britt riding boots, I need a new pair!


  110. Great giveaway. I’ve been a member of Shoemint for a while now and I would love to get my hands on those Sienna booties.

  111. Hi Amber! Absolutely love your blog! If I could pick one pair to have for fall it would have to be The Emma booties! I feel like you could pretty much wear it with everything and I love all the colors it comes in! Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip and thanks for a chance!

  112. Love your outfit!! Hope your having an amazing time in Tuscany!! I signed up for ShoeMint and I would love to win the boots you have, the Sienna in black!! Xoxo

  113. I would do bad things for a pair of the sienna booties in black. They would look AMAZE with my faux leather leggings.

    You’re living my dream traveling through Europe!! I have plans to backpack Europe for my honeymoon (one day!!)


  114. Yay! Just signed up! Love the Sienna in Black. Have some killer new AG Jeans they would go great with 😉


  115. I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t a little jealous of your European wanderings but I’m not sure if I would be able to leave my little puppy for 6 weeks either without shedding a few tears.

    Oh, and I LOVE Shoemint. Their Kate heels are perfect and I’ve had my eye on them forever!

  116. Looks like youre having a great time! I’m so jealous, I loved Italy when I went! Please tell me you’re going to venice! That was my favorite, along with cinque terre! And i love the Sutton booties from shoemint! Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  117. Hi Amber,
    wonderful pictures!!! So funny that you just met Cara, it looks like you’ve been close friends like forever:-)
    I would really like to participate in your giveaway:-) I signed up and would choose the ‘Max’ boots:-)
    Have a great day with your hubby;-)
    Love, Kirsten

  119. Hi Amber I signed up and my favorite is the Emma .. But I also love the Sienna!

    Love your outfit 🙂

  120. Fashion week looks so fun! I love all your pictures. You and Cara look amazing. I hope you are having fun in Italy! I was in Tuscany two years ago and it was so incredibly beautiful. I hope to go back with my husband someday. It’s such a romantic place. If you guys go to Rome you HAVE to have Giolitti’s gelato. It’s near the pantheon and it is the BEST in the country. So…shoemint, I love love love the Emma boots in black! I’ve been eyeing them for a while:) Thanks Amber!

  121. I would love to have the Emma booties you are wearing! I will start my first job soon and could really use a nice pair of polished boots to go with the new work wardrobe which still reflect my style =)

  122. Hi Amber, how are you? I feel like I know you, because your blog is so personal and awesome.. in love with all of your photos.. I’ve been following you since a couple of weeks now, and I’m so glad I found your blog. Your photos are incredible. I love the mix between black and white pictures and color ones. Your hair is too die for… I hope you’re having a great day today and having fun in Tuscany! I’ve been there once when I was about 12 and we had an amazing house with a pool.. it wasn’t as cheap though! P.s. I would love to participate in your awesome giveaway! I signed up for ShoeMint! and my favorite shoe has got to be the ‘Max’ boot ( Fingers crossed..
