Our favorite fashionistas are those who are honest about their life and style. The best looks are always those that emanate authenticity, and that's exactly what we love about Boston fashionista Mackenzie. Her blog, Six Feet in Heels keeps it real and serves as a creative outlet for this finance professional. It's inspirational and incredibly relatable, focusing on modern expressive fashion for today's professional woman.
Mackenzie does have plenty of statement pieces in her wardrobe, but it's her ensemble looks that really draw the eye. Let's face it; most of today's working women have closets full of different pieces that are meant to be mixed and matched day after day. Six Feet in Heels is like a guide for creating unique, fashion forward outfits out of such items. Take a look at Mackenzie's website or instagram by the same name (@sixfeetinheels), and you'll see an array of eye-catching ensembles made up of go-to pieces that can be assembled into a wide variety of outfits. Because she's based in New England, there's a whole four seasons of looks to be inspired from here! In the meantime, you can get a preview with the examples we've pulled here.
White Blazer with Black Tee, Distressed Jeans and Pointed Flats
White on black always pops, but blazer / tee combos usually have the colors reversed. We love how Mackenzie brought the white to the outside in a striking white blazer and solid black tee. She keeps the look casual with distressed straight leg jeans with a raw hem and minimal accessories (just a small tote handbag and knotted headband). The outfit is completed with an eye-catching pair of white and black pointed flats.
Print Skirt with Chunky Knit Sweater and Brown Booties
We love this look for school, work or just wanting to look fashionable while running errands! The two-tone print midi skirt with a light side ruffle is the main stunner of this ensemble. That said, the high-necked white chunky knit sweater is also a casual-yet-stylish eyecatcher. Mackenzie completes the look with a great pair of go-to brown booties and a classy leather tote.
This is a great look for fall, but you can adjust it for warmer weather by swapping out the heavy sweater for a tee or blouse and wearing brown sandals instead of booties. A wide variety of print skirts would also work for this look.
