Baby, It's (Bitterly) Cold Outside
I promise no more posts about two-tone boots. I've given up my quest. I will just wait until next season rolls around. So instead of pining away after a pair of boots, I am channeling them for inspiration instead!
I really like this outfit - I like how it came together. And I liked it so much that I made a real effort to get some good pictures of it, especially since I had forgotten that I left my camera charging at my office so didn't have it take pics in the morning. Confess - do you do this as well? You wear an outfit that you really like and therefore ensure that at some point during the day you get a picture of it? Do normal people do that? Or just style bloggers? :)
I also feel like I am channeling a combination of Mandy and Tania with this outfit. Mandy with her effortless mixing of black and brown combos and Tania with her winter-layering magic capabilities (you can barely see my striped knee-high socks over my tights).
And I've also broken one of my own style rules with this outfit combo of flat boots with a dress that goes just a little bit below the knees. I almost ALWAYS wear this dress with heels, but heels just aren't in the cards with all the ice that is around here in VA. The next few days will see a return to 40-degree normal winter weather (hallelujah), so I'll be able to wear my normal shoes again, yay!
Sending warm thoughts your way!
