Boots: Asos //Sweater: local store// Pinafore (worn as skirt): Forever 21// Coat: J Crew// Bag: Stradivarius// Snood: H&M
And the dreary gray days continue. Anyways, yes, I've been looking for thigh-high boots like this forever. Do you know how impossible it is to find stuff that are not in trend? Well, unless you had enough money for those completely awesome Sam Edelman versions. But affordable versions? Pfft. either not right or not in my size. Like these, almost perfect, but not nearly long enough. One thing about these boots though, it's like a comedy act trying to get out of them at work.
I've wanted a pair of these since Serena Van der Woodsen made them cool again in Gossip Girl season 1. Yes, almost six years ago. One more for my quest for the timeless wardrobe. I think I'm getting there. Boots I will wear season to season, perfect coats and sweaters. They will save you from fashion faux pas for a long time to come. As for the outfit, burgundy + leopard. I wore the pinafore as a skirt. A warm gray coat. I was skeptical leaving the house bare-legged because the tights would've detracted from the whole look. Well, it wasn't much of a sacrifice because these boots are nice and toasty, and I think it elevated my look from a schoolgirl look.
So, life-wise? Nothing much. It's been very quiet. Oh, I've been wondering about whether or not to start a weekly post talking about different topics other than fashion (of course we can talk fashion but from different perspectives other than what I'm wearing), you know, something like a Topic of the Week thing. Would you sweeties be down with that? What kind of topics do you want to talk about? I do love to talk and write about things. You should see the memos on my phone, hehe...let me know in the comments!
See you soon,
