Boot Up

by - Friday, November 23, 2012

To Black Friday or to sleep in? I've stayed home the last few years, and this year was no different. I couldn't resist the sales though and did place one order for a two-tone military jacket from American Eagle (40% off sitewide + free shipping). I sized up because my usual size (XS) sold out much too quickly. I'm hoping the jacket runs small or I'll be able to exchange it in stores later down the road. Fingers crossed. Update: jacket is now sold out.

Today's outfit may look familiar (heck, all my recent outfits are essentially copycats of one another). I rewore all the same base layers but switched up the accessorizing to better suit the cooler weather. A little update on the boots: they're still holding their shape nicely (sigh of relief that the leather's retained its stiffness). The only discomfort is the side of the boots rubbing against my ankle bones. Wearing thicker socks help somewhat.

Have fun shopping, everyone!

lips: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor in coral crush (sold here)

  2. lol, I could not resist the sales going on too. I bought 2 dresses on Modcloth because they were 50% off. Now I'm like wondering if that was too impulsive since they were not on my shopping list, but oh well, one must live! haha. Can't wait to see how the AA jacket turns out, it totally looks cool online :)

    1. Oh man, I feel ya on the impulsive buys. I thought I was doing so well until J.Crew Factory's sales hit today. 50% off + free shipping? I went and bought pjs and completely-not-on-my-list accessories. Sigh, haha.

      Would love to see reviews on the Modcloth dresses once you get them!

  3. Great outfit! I love your TB boots!

  4. I love this outfit on you. Very chic!

  5. forever jealous that you own these boots.

  6. Very chic outfit. Love your scarf!

  7. I noticed you said you went up 1/2 a size in these boots, do you own the reva flats? If so do you go up 1/2 size in those, too? There are mixed reviews for this boot, some say it runs large, small, true to size)

  8. Just trying to get an idea of how they run... Thank you

    1. Sorry, I don't own the Reva flats (I own J.Crew flats and pretty much always go up half a size there too). For these boots, I think if I could've gotten my foot inside, I would've gone with my normal size, but since I couldn't, I went up half a size. My foot's on the wide side, so that may have something to do with it. Hope that helps!

  9. So is mine. Perfect! Thanks beautiful :)
