These Boots Were Made for Walkin'

At last I got myself some textured black tights, which I've been sorely needing for quite awhile. My solid black pairs just look too heavy for summer outfits, whereas these keep my legs warm without overpowering the other pieces.

Lately I've been wearing my all my pairs of low-heeled boots a LOT, and that's partly because I've been doing a lot of walking during my lunch break. My workplace is situated right along a pretty walking trail with views of the bay, so in an effort to get more exercise (I'm trying to shape up for Burning Man, truth be told), my friend/coworker and I have been having a quick lunch followed by a long brisk walk, which requires the most comfortable of my footwear. And I'm not one of those people who's OK with changing into sneakers to go for a walk; either the shoes go with the outfit or they don't get worn, period.

Oooh. I want to go back to Burning Man so bad! It looks like you're going to be in great shape!

This outfit is uber cute!

Very cute. I like the contrast of the light pink fabric with the black.

Obviously, you'll be great for Burning Man. Also, I like how successfully you've toughened up your pale pink skirt.

Loving this. I want some low boots once it starts to cool down. woohoo burning man! =D

I love black textured tights - I bought a bunch of pairs on clearance at the end of spring that I haven't worn yet.

Aw, I'm one of those people who will wear runners with my work clothes (but in my defense, they are cute little Mary Jane runners, not big honkers). If I'm doing a real workout on my walk, I fully change into my shorts/tee/runners.

I hear ya- I hate when people change into sneakers for walking. Just get a nice pair of low heeled shoes or boots. THEY DO EXIST.

The pale pink and black combo is dynamite! Especially with the sparkly scarf.

Not a sneaker person myself, though I did get a pair of silver sequin ones recently!
