Those Damn Boots Again

This outfit is another one from before I left for my vacation, and coincidentally, I wore my cowboy boots. Let me tell you, as much as I love them, I'm getting damn tired of seeing these boots day after day, both on my feet and in photos. In the last couple of days the swelling in my toe has gone down enough that I've been able to identify 2 or 3 more pairs that I can start wearing, but many of my shoes remain heartbreakingly unwearable, including the beautiful pair of blue Frye boots that arrived last week, which you'll hear more about later.

Navy is a tough color to photograph well; though the dress and socks look black here, I assure you they are blue. I just love these socks, with their cute button detail around the top and simple stripe pattern.

Dress: thirfted
Top: thrifted
Belt: from an F21 dress
Socks: Sock Dreams
Boots: vintage

Great over-the-knee socks! I'm loving the new blog design too-- not sure how new it is (I usually read your blog in google reader :)) but this is the first time I've seen it & I love it!

Love those socks! And I really like the new blog header, two thumbs up!

Wow, those socks are daring! Audi, you have so much confidence to wear things that are more "out there" - I do envy you that.

Love your new layout and header - did you make that?

Thanks for the comments on the new header, everyone -- I made it yesterday and am still playing with the layout to figure out which one works best on the most computers. Let me know if it looks terrible on yours!

Clair said...

Yeah, love the new header - and those socks :)

Blue frye boots- I am so jealous. Wish Ihad the nerve to wear your cowboy boots, might just wear them everyday.

Almost Summer

Oooo, are the blue boots the sapphire Veronica Slouch ones that You Look Fab had on their page today? I am seriously coveting them. If only I had the cash, I'd order them in a heartbeat! Can't wait to hear about yours!
