This WIWW post is brought is brought to you by lameness with a side of schlumptastic.
I say that because I only have two outfits documented this week. Most days I stayed schlumpy in jeans and a t-shirt (sweet), my workout clothes (working out was actually optional, pity) or if I did gather myself I forgot to take a photo.
You know how you throw something together and you think, m'mkay this is looking mighty cute and then you catch a glimpse of yourself in a window or full mirror or your husband kindly snaps a photo of you on your porch?
Suddenly you're mortified you left the house and pranced around in public.
Exhibit A: My outfit for church on Sunday. We had a cool-ish spell so my first thought was, "Break out some boots!"
Except I look like I just hopped off my horse and onto our porch.
When did my boots become so cowboy-ish?
Yee. And haw.
grey dress: Down East Basics
pink ruffle cardi: Down East Basics
Frye Carson boots in fawn: Zappos
silver choker with cross: James Avery
I love wearing this necklace because it belonged to my mother. She also had a big sand dollar pendant, very 70s, which I switch the cross out for sometimes.
And another view of my boots.
Maybe I should've worn my taller boots?
See, I want to be the type of person that can wear cowboy/western boots with dresses and skirts with confidence and flair(a la Tami Taylor on Friday Night Lights) and I'm just not there yet. Sigh.
Monday evening: Trick or treating & halloween carnival
grey & black t-shirt: Stein Mart
grey layering tank: Old Navy
black drapey vest: Forever 21

What do you think of boots and skirts (not too sort of a skirt, mind you) on say, a 42 year old? Hip & Fun? Appropriate? Edgy? Ridiculous? Do tell.
