gray ruffledy shirt: Cato, white pants: Victoria's Secret, gray booties: Cato, diamonds: The Husband
(Look, no NY&Co! Should have saved this for next week! :P)
Another non-exciting outfit, BUT I really wanted to wear this shirt. I bought it a few weeks ago, and still haven’t worn it. I thought at the time that it would look best under a cardigan, but it’s too warm today to wear one, and since it’s Thursday, I can get away with a little more casual look anyway. And I amped it up a little with some diamonds, which by the way, when you move to a new town and are still trying to meet people, really can substitute for a best friend--at least temporarily. (Which is in no way a disparaging remark towards The Best Friend, KML, just to be clear.)
(Close up of the shirt--cute!)
Also, I’m wearing my new booties! This is a trend I’ve struggled with accepting for almost a year now. I have been on the lookout for a pair without a ridiculously high heel on them, but was beginning to think that was an oxymoron—booties without a heel. I found these at Cato, and the best part (besides the fun patent gray color and semi-low heel) is that they were on sale for $14! I know that means they’re not real leather and will probably be scuffed and torn by this time next year, but I had come to the conclusion that I wasn’t willing to spend much more on this trend without “testing the waters” so to speak. Plus, I hate the word "bootie". I feel ridiculous saying it.
These BOOTIES (ugh) have also worked a miracle. I’m actually looking forward to cooler temperatures next week…because I can’t wait to wear these booties with a dress and some tights! Curse myself for saying it, but I can handle a few more weeks of winter weather…sigh.
(P.S. This last pic is horrible. I promise--there was no self-fulfilling prophecy yet--I did not go out and scuff my boots already! Just one more example in a long line of evidence why I should get off my lazy bum and take REAL pictures, not iPhone shots.)
