Sorry for the posting fail yesterday. I was on the plane most of the day, and then when I got back the internet was out, and then I had to get up ridiculously early to go get tests run on my stomach and THEN (it doesn't end) I was knocked out most of the morning from all the sedatives. Fun times. But on the plus side, my Frye boots came! And I have lots of pictures!
I love them. I love, love, love, love LOVE them. They are the Short Carmen Harness boots, and they are fabulous. The finish of the leather is a little more rugged, the sassy harness and upturned toe add a cowgirl flair, the 2.5 inch heel is just enough to make you feel a little more pulled together than usual, but not so tall that it makes your feet hurt, and basically they're perfect. I really want to wear them with little sundresses, but I left them all at school, so I couldn't take any pictures of that for you guys. :( Oh, and I got these from Zappos. Which I do love, but UPS took FOREVER to get them here. And then literally dropped them off an hour after I left for the airport to go to Oregon for the weekend. Grrrr.
However, I did do two outfits with my new babies. In this first one I'm wearing a Walter jacket, 7 For All Mankind jeans (my new Gwenevere ones!), a J. Crew tank, and the Frye boots, of course. I got the J. Crew tank for $25, and it was originally $70. Score! It's an olive green base with tons and tons of bronzey sequins stitched on. It's a little big on me, but I love the heavily gilded look of it too much, I couldn't turn it down. I paired it with the leather jacket to give it some shape, and then I think the cowboy boots give it all a rugged twist that makes it all very rock and roll, no?
The top here is ASTARS (gifted), the necklace is F21, and the jeans are 7 For All Mankind. I'm actually going to be dying the jeans darker sometime this week (hopefully) but I really like these boots with bare legs and a very simple outfit, because I think they can speak for themselves.
Another thing I got over the weekend? Spanx. Specifically this pair. They are amazing. I don't know how I lived without them. I got them at Nordstrom's Rack for like $30. They had the Spanx tights too, which are great. Definitely go check that out if there's a store near you.
