Insomniac Sale Picks: Flat Boots

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Alyson requested a few picks for flat boots, so here we go:

nine west contigua

Nine West Contigua – was $169, now $96.17

Just a super clean, minimalist riding boot … but with the fabulous twist of a full zip up the back. These have a classic almond toe shape and a 1″ stacked heel. Shaft is 16″ tall and this version is 14″ in circumference, though this style also comes in wide calf in three of the four colors. Available in US sizes 5 – 12 in this dark tan as well as black, dark brown, or dark gray. Size availability varies by color. Need more footbed options? This Trotters boot is similar and comes in US sizes 5 – 12 in N, M, and C/D widths, as well as wide calf.

sam edelman rider

Sam Edelman Rider – was $159, now $109

You KNOW I’m digging the badass details on this pair – the buckle, exposed exterior zip, and shiny heel plates. These also come in brown and if the heel plate is a turn-off for you, it’s considerably more subdued on that version. Available in US sizes 6 – 10. Shaft is 16″ tall and 14″ in circumference. Here’s a similar boot with an 18″ circumference that also comes in M, W, and WW footbeds. Need vegan options? Try this LifeStride boot in regular or wide-calf.

Frye carson riding button

Frye Carson Riding Button – was $398, now $239.99

Still quite a splurge even on sale, but GAH so gorgeous. If you’re a fan of pull-on, Western-influenced styles this one is a sure winner. That weathered cognac leather is superb, and you can’t beat Frye workmanship. Shaft is 15.75″ tall and 15.5″ in circumference. Available in US sizes 5.5 – 11. Frye’s wide-calf options are kinda pitiful – rarely reaching beyond 15″ or so – and I was hard-pressed to find anything similar in wide-calf. This boot has button detailing and a 16.25″ circumference, and this one has a bit of Western edge and a 18.5″ wide calf.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for flat boots:

  1. Amazon – Most shoe companies do flat boots, so I’m gonna point you to the sites with the best selection here. Amazon has tall boots in widths and various calf sizes, and every height imaginable. I’ve been lusting after a pair of Bed Stus, and these riding boots are right up my alley.
  2. 6pm.com – Past-season offerings on sale, and a few current season picks, too. These cognac Clarks moto boots are edgy but timeless.
  3. Nordstrom – Hundreds of gorgeous picks, including wide and narrow calf options. Get a load of these gray paneled beauties.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Cropped Plus Size Cardigans

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Shana requested a few picks for cropped plus size cardigans, so here we go:

torrid cropped cardigan

Torrid Crop Knit Cardigan – was $44.50, now $31.15
with code JUSTGOWILD

Only available in one color, but you can’t go wrong with classic black. I love that this has a rounded neckline but a wider one so you can still add a necklace that won’t fight with your cardigan collar. Reviewers say it runs a bit big, so check size charts. Available in sizes 12 – 32. Here’s a similar style in regular sizes, and this one in petites.

plus size crop cardigan

Ellos Cropped Cardigan – was $29.99 – $34.99, now $19.99 – $24.99

V-necklines are wonderfully versatile, too, and you’ll find that this magenta pairs well with more colors than you’d expect. All jewel tones, grays, reds, cobalt, and a handful of neons, for starters. Also comes in ivory, in sizes 1X – 5X. Size availability varies by color. Here’s a similar style – “wine” and “ivory” are close matches – in regular sizes.

cropped drape cardigan plus size

Nic + Zoe Daybreak Cardigan – was $118, now $35.40

Drape-front crops are very elegant, and although this one is lightweight its color makes it great for late-winter groupings as well as warm-weather wear. Available in sizes 1X – 3X. This one has a similar shape in regular sizes, and this a similar color (teal). Looking for a short-sleeved cropped cardigan instead? This one comes in 14 colors and sizes 12 – 32.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for cropped plus size cardigans:

  1. Modcloth – The Dream of the Crop cardigan is constantly getting re-stocked, and is available in sizes s – 4X in most colors.
  2. One Stop Plus – Short and long-sleeved options in addition to the one above.
  3. Amazon – More than 60 options, from shrugs to true cardigans. This Ashley Stewart cropped cardigan comes in four vibrant colors.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Mini Skirts

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Amy requested a few picks for mini skirts that work with tights and boots, so here we go:

boden sixties mini

Boden Sixties Mini – was $78, now $39.00 – $54.60

Many minis currently on the market are positively micro – wow, alliteration – but this one is on the longer side of mini. It’s a textured medium-weight jersey, so great for year-round wear, but also lined which means it’ll work fantastically with tights. Available in this navy as well as bright coral, black, or turquoise in sizes 2 – 18 as well as some petite and tall sizes. This mini is available in pastels only, but comes in sizes 16W – 24W.

bcbg mini skirt

BCBGeneration Zipper Detail Mini Skirt – was $88, now $35.99

See? So cute, but only 15″ long. This little guy is also lined and would look amazing with black opaques and ankle boots, a graphic tee and a jacket. Available in this red as well as black in sizes. 0 -12. Couldn’t find anything similar in plus, but this black and red mini has marvelously edgy detailing and comes in sizes 14 – 24.

slub mini skirt

Piperlime Collection Knit Slub Mini – was $79, now $19.99

A great choice for cold weather wear with that nubby texture. Also fully lined and will work equally well with work and casual outfits. Two reviewers had some issues and this is final sale, so be aware. Still including it since lined minis in decent size ranges were strangely hard to find. This one is available in sizes XS – XL. And this skirt has an abstract black and white print and comes in sizes 0X – 3X.

 

Honorable mentions

 

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for mini skirts:

  1. Boden – Boden minis are MADE for tights and boots. In addition to the one above, this British Tweed Mini is adorable.
  2. ASOS – Minis for regular, petite, and plus sizes. Love this gorgeous suede mini wrap skirt.
  3. Express – Some of these aren’t completely tights-friendly, but you can always count on Express to have at least a dozen cute miniskirts in stock.
