That's a Wrap

by - Thursday, October 31, 2013

As the morning temperatures drop, I've decided to finally dust off my boots in preparation for the colder months ahead. For a top 5 favorite purchase from last year, I don't feel like I wore these riding boots as much as I should have. Too scared to scuff them up? Make dents in the leather? Finally bought black jeggings so no more mismatching blue denim with black leather? Take your pick. Things shall change this year as the newness has worn off.

My morning schedule varies greatly depending on the amount of sleep I get the night before. Sometimes I'm up at 6, other times at 8. On this morning, I happened to be at the right place at the right time, just as the sun rose above the horizon. I love how these photos turned out. I didn't even feel the brisk morning air (ok, small lie) when there's a beautiful sight to see.

    1. How good that you decided to wear this wonderful boots again, it would be really a pity if the were still in the closet! These boots would be perfect for our Bavarian winter!

  2. I just wore my black leather boots for the first time this fall, too! Love this outfit - your scarf and shirt look so cute together!

  3. I'm interested in the black jeggings- what kind of material are they? are they like the ponte knit or are they something else? How do they hold up after washing and wearing?

    1. I'd say these jeggings are more similar to regular jeans than ponte knit. The material feels thicker and is sorta texturized. I treat them like any ol' pair of jeans except they have more stretch. I've only worn these a handful of times so far, so haven't washed them yet. They hold up pretty well but do stretch out a bit, most noticeably around the knees with each wear. Definitely can't treat them like tights and leggings. I highly recommend you giving them a try!

    2. okay, thanks, cee! :) I already have a pair of black jeans that are my favorite, so I don't need any more, but I was looking for a knit/ponte legging type pant, and just checking to see what these were, since it's so hard to tell with black pants.

    3. No problem! I'll keep my eyes out for ya. Good luck with your search!

  4. comfy outfit. love the lighting and the background of these photos. do you take them in the morning before going to work?

    1. Yep! I prefer the soft glow of morning light because photos turn out prettier, imo. If I'm rushed in the mornings, I'll take them after work. Well, now that daylight savings time is ending, I have to try even harder to make time in the mornings :)

  5. As simple as this outfit is, it's probably one of my favorites! It's a style that I wear and can relate to (blacks and grays is basically what i wear 98% of the time haha).


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
