{My cool new boots}

 

Remember when I promised you I would post an outfit with my new boots (here)? Well, here they are, in all their glory. I really like these boots because they make me feel a little bit tough, which is SO not my personality. It sounds really silly, but when I wear them, I feel like a motorcycle-riding Parisian, and I love it! Ha! I would really like to find a pair of black skinny jeans to maximize the French effect. To enhance the tough look of the boots, I added a tan and black-striped tunic, chain bracelets, and my chain-strap Prada bag. However, to avoid looking like I actually belong on a motorcycle, I softened the look with a slight smoky-eye, loose waves in my hair, classic red nails, and a hint of lipcolor.
*Please forgive me for still having my apartment decorated for Halloween. I’ve got some big deadlines coming up in the non-blog-related part of my life, so until those pass and I once again have some free time, Happy Halloween! I would like to note the irony in that last year I never decorated for Halloween, and instead I celebrated October 31st by putting up my Christmas tree. Tacky? Yes, perhaps. But I really love holidays, and I don’t get a lot of visitors at my apartment so…yeah.

    Thank you! To be honest, this is my bed head! My hair is naturally curly, but when I sleep on it while it is damp, the curls loosen and they look just like this when I wake up in the morning. But I’m glad you like it!

    I love this outfit! The stripes and boots are a great contrast. And your hair and makeup are beautiful! I would love to know how you make your hair wavy like that…maybe a future post?

    Oh you are really making me consider dying my hair brown again. Well, maybe not consider, but seriously ponder. 🙂

    Love those boots on you!! It’s fun to wear “tough” things when you usually don’t. I’m thinking a pair of motorcycle boots is on my must buy list!!
