New (to me) boots

So, the Old Navy tights are working out fabulously. I recommend them, even though they are $6.50 in the store despite being $5 online. They are opaque and cozy. Thumbs up. If you are eying the two tone dress from last week, I highly recommend going up a size from your usual Old Navy size (which is probably much smaller than your regular size). It's very cute but the fabric doesn't have much give and the size small and the v-neck cut combined to make me look way too busty for public.

And why did I need new tights so urgently? To pair with my new boots, of course.

D's grandma had these in her closet and she kindly passed them along to me recently. They are wonderful soft leather with contrast stitching, and I've been wearing them with tights and adding a dress and a cardigan.

It's the most comfortable fall uniform ever.

  1. hilarious. my husband had bought me that 2-tone dress in 3 colors a few weeks back and I was thinking the same thing - could I even wear this in public?

    LOVE the boots.
