beachwood steps

Transitioning from Summer to Fall is always fun here in LA. The day is still hot but once the sun starts to set, cool temps sneak right in. Yesterday, while hanging by the Beachwood steps, I threw on my trusty army jacket and was all set for the breeze. Peep the cowboy boots customized by my 89 year old neighbor Harry! Remember, when I mentioned I loved the boots in this post and was going to attempt a DIY to cut down mine? Well Harry tackled my DIY instead and damn did he do a great job!

In this look: Equipment silk blouse, Urban Outfitters army jacket, Vintage Levi’s jean shorts, Vintage cowboy boots (cut short), Vintage necklace, Top Shop purse and Ray Ban shades

    Did you cut the boots yourself? Do you have a DIY tutorial for how to finish the top edges? You did an amazing job on them!

    • Thank you! I had a friend cut it with scissors made for cutting leather then glued the top edges to finish them with leather glue.
