...And Take Two

by - Sunday, March 09, 2014

The formula for today's outfit (sweater + plaid + tee + jeans + boots) is a repeat from the other day. The difference? Instead of using warm colors, I chose cool colors from the other half of the spectrum (well, with the exception of the necklace). Oh yeah, my facial expressions also look more normal today ;)

gray open cardigan, plaid shirt, white tee, over the knee brown suede boots

  2. Very cute outfit! Just some constructive criticism but I don't think those dark brown boots look quite right with light wash skinny jeans. It kinda awkwardly segments the leg line. I hope you don't mind me saying this! I lurk on your blog everyday and I usually love all of your outfits.

    1. Of course! I welcome all feedback. I had the same train of thoughts when I first got the boots and was trying to figure out what to wear them with... how dark to how light colored pants can I get away with? I think white jeans were too bright and created too much of a contrast, which is too bad because I actually own a pair of white skinnies. I was torn with the black skinnies and brown boots combo, but concluded that it's a matter of personal preference if black and brown go together. Then that leaves blue denim. Dark washes looked the best (imo) with these boots because they both have a semi-dressy feel. I literally wore this combo for three days straight, haha. I then wanted to branch out to a more casual vibe and figured lighter washed jeans fit the bill. I think it's a combination me forcing the boots to be versatile (when sometimes you just can't) and making do with what I have in my wardrobe. Perhaps gray jeans would be a good compromise between not-too-casual and dressy? Now I just have to find myself a pair :) Thanks for taking the time to come out of lurkdom!


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