Nisolo Dari Boot Review
TL;DR - Definitely Recommend. True to size but size up for wide feet or thick socks.
Shop the Dari Boot Here
My first pair of Nisolo shoes are these beautiful Black Dari Commuter Boots!
I have been eyeing this pair of black leather ankle boots with a heel for the longest time, probably going on about 2 years, in fact. One of my In Search Of items has been a pair of versatile black ankle boots to wear casually and with dresses and skirts.
The unboxing experience was exciting and felt so special. Each boot comes in it's own protective bag which is testament to the love that went into making these leather ankle boots.
Why was I interested in Nisolo Dari Commuter Boot?
The Dari Boot is an elevated black ankle boot with a 2.5" heel - High enough to make for a polished finish when wearing dresses and skirts but low enough to wear every day and be comfortable - even travel days! The commuter edition of the Dari Boot has a rubber sole which I thought would fit my lifestyle well - no matter the weather or how much walking, I think they will be more comfortable than a stacked wooden heel.
Breaking in Leather Boots
Leather boots and leather shoes always require a little bit of breaking in as leather starts out a tad stiff and then learns to move with you!

How to Style a Black Turtleneck Sweater
A black turtleneck sweater can be worn so many ways and is an excellent layering piece for winter, let alone a staple for many in a modest capsule wardrobe. In this petite style blog post I will share some of my favorite ways to style a black turtleneck sweater!

How to Care for Cashmere Sweaters
With any garment, you should always check the label and adhere to it for the best outcome and greatest longevity. Some say dry clean only. Others say hand wash. It's generally best to lay them flat to dry if you are washing at home.
Protect Your Sweaters With This Undershirt
Decreasing the need to launder sweaters definitely helps extend their lifespan. One way to do that is to wear a layer beneath them. I especially recommend these sweat proof undershirts. My initial review of them is here. They definitely make a huge difference, although they are a bit of an investment. Save a few bucks on them here.
Maintain Your Sweaters With These Tools
Over time it is natural for your sweaters to obtain "pills". Friction causes the fibers to bunch up into little balls that can be unsightly. But wait! Don't get rid of that sweater, it's still good!
Try one of these tools (carefully!) to extend the life of your sweaters.

Tradlands is a brand I discovered in the last few years as I began my personal style journey and endeavored to shop more intentionally all around.
They have some really high quality pieces and some iconic designs that come back season after season. I actually love this about the brand. It’s the whole idea of slow fashion -- not turning over so many new designs you can’t keep up as a consumer.
Tradlands focuses on designing really solid pieces that become so loved they can keep bringing them back because you’re going to want that in another color.. or you want to save up to make a responsible clothing purchase. Or your best friend heard you raving about it all year and now they’re ready to make an investment.
Huge thanks to Tradlands for gifting this sweater! Stay tuned for more styling ideas featuring xxs tradlands shelter cardigan in birch.
In the mean time you can see all available sizes and colors of the Shelter Cardigan on the Tradlands website.
How To Save Money On Tradlands Clothing
- You can use Shop Pay to split your purchase into 4 equal and interest free installments, which may be really helpful for you! You can fill wardrobe gaps a couple times a year and spread the expense out instead of having it hit at once. Score!
- Also check out the worn well exchange where you can find pre-loved second hand Tradlands pieces at a discount or even sell you previous Tradlands pieces for store credit or cash.
- Second hand used clothing sites and apps at times have Tradlands pieces. I bought a Tradlands Chambray Shirt Dress on Poshmark (use Discount Code MJRS_6913) and it made me fall in love with the brand along with renewing my faith in button up shirts.
- As far as Tradlands discount codes are concerned, they do pop up from time to time. They have great sales periodically like their recent 30% off summer sale coupon. I do try to share Tradlands sales when I can so I can help you save on whichever Tradlands piece you’ve been eyeing! Hope it helps! :)

Mott & Bow Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater Willow in Black, $149
I love a good turtleneck in the wintertime and my black one is probably on it's last season. Actually, I said that last season, but I may be able to squeeze one more out of it. We'll see! It is not my ideal blend of fabric, so when I replace it I will definitely be factoring fabric in like this cashmere turtleneck from Mott & Bow.
