Back to Boots


Oregon refuses to play along with my plans to fake Spring.  The weather has, instead, gotten progressively colder and wetter as the week has gone on.  I snuck some sandals in on Tuesday but was forced back to boots today:



The good news?  I was able to wear the boots sans tights.  Here in Oregon, we call that progress.  In addition to boots (Born Crown “Sosie” via Nordstrom), I wore a rose-colored skirt (thrifted, and hemmed by me) paired with a multi-colored sheer blouse (Liberty Love via Nordstrom Rack) and a studded belt (Michael Michael Kors via Nordstrom).

The better news?  This long, cold, wet week is nearly done. 

Happy Thursday, All!

  1. Ooooh in SF we call that progress as well. Skirts/dresses sans tights is BIG.

    I can't wait for the weekend. Plus it's supposed to be "warm." Might get to bare my legs... eeeeeee!

    P.S. Adorable outfit. Also in my post from Monday, one of my poses reminded me of you :)

  2. It's supposed to be 70 degrees in Oregon this weekend! So you'll finally be able to bust out your sandals :)

  5. In Houston, we call cold weather (specifically, ahem, "Winter") a miracle! But, yeah, I agree that it sucks to be teased by Mother Nature. But you still look cute!

  6. I agree with you about Thursdays. I work from home on Fridays, so in effect Thursday evenings always feel like the start of my weekend. I like the blouse!

  7. Seattle is also cold and dreary. I've been having mixed feelings about boots. I just don't WANT to wear them anymore because I don't want Spring to think I've given up on it. But I did booties as a compromise today. No tights is a good compromise, too!

  8. We had the tiniest cold snap (60 degrees one morning) so is it wrong that made me jealous of you still being able to wear boots? I especially love them with this whole outfit. Stripes in navy and pink--I'm in.

  12. Oh Gracey, I am loving this outfit! Just the perfect dose of pattern and print. That skirt looks like something you could wear all summer long.

  14. PROGRESS! I love explaining to people in other parts of the country how it is that I am still dressing this way. Anywho, here's to our next week of bipolar weather, eh? At least you look absolutely adorable in this outfit of yours. (:
