The Boss


BOOOOOOOOOTS.  I had to wait until 8pm for it to be cool enough to bust out boots and tights lest I passed out from overheating.  And even then, I barely made it.  It's ridiculously hot this week, like hitting 75-80 degrees.  Even though I wore this without tights and boots during the day (tan flats of course--you know me...) the cardigan was still too much.  In determination of fall weather I kept it on anyway.  I keep thinking if I dress like it's fall the weather will follow suit.  Sometimes you've gotta show that weather who's the boss, you know?  Even if it means sweating like a fool and looking like a hot mess, I'M THE BOSS.  

As planned, I caught up on the What Not to Wear series finale this weekend.  Of course, I cried.  Then I watched an episode of The Biggest Loser and cried.  And then I got too dang hot in my cardigan and cried.  So, um...maybe we'll try this boss thing again next week instead?

  1. I am on the hunt for black fall boots. I have brown and tan and just can't seem to find the perfect black pair. I love number 6 in your post.

  9. I know what you mean! It's downright FREEZING here inside the house and in the mornings and evenings but during the day it's WAY too hot to wear such things as boots and cardigans. It makes getting dressed in the morning very difficult!

  41. I have a question about boots: I'm looking for an inexpensive pair of boots this color but that aren't too "cheap". Would you know anything about this pair? I tried them on in the store and really l liked how they fit. I'm just wondering if they will last long enough and if the zipper will hold up?

  52. Wow, again with a great deal! I bought number 5 from Urban Outfitters - $49.99 for leather. Thanks for the great tips, although maybe that's dangerous... :) (Seriously, you are the first blogger where I have actually purchased anything, and this makes 2 items!)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Haha! I'm glad you're liking the choices at least. I hope the boots work out for you!
