Break out the boots

Boots: Gordmans (recent, $20)
Tights: Promod, in Italy
Dress: Kohls
Earrings: old white elephant gift
ugly name badge accessory: work

I have been searching SEARCHING for a pair of brown leather boots to no avail. Either they are too cowboy, or dont have a side zipper (a must for me) or have too many buckles, or have weird creasy folds, or don't have a flat heel (another must) or are the wrong shade of brown, of the calf is way waaaay too huge, or they are awesome and then they are super uncomfortable or pinching the back of my ankle or something else stupid.

I swung through Gordmans the other day, and I saw these and I've been wanting black boots too and for the price I couldn't pass them up. They have a half way middle zipper, and the criss cross accent is a little janky across where the zipper cuts through it, but it's on the inside of the boot and you can't really see that part either. Also, I liked that the buckles were silver! They also came in gray and I believe tan. And super comfy.

Now if only I could find my elusive brown boot match. Sigh.

My hair looks a lot better than I thought it did, which is a nice surprise looking back at these. I think a nice pop of color in the tights next time will be a fun change, the black blends into the boots a bit too much.

I linked this outfit in a link up over on  Check it out for more "cozy knit" outfits =)


  1. Love your sweater dress! I definitely think bright tights would look awesome with this outfit!
