Red and Olive, Now with Extra Red!

This outfit actually began life with a blue skirt and an olive green top, modeled from a Sundance Catalog image. I wanted to wear my lace-up boots with a short skirt, before the snow flies and I can no longer deny winter. The blue skirt, seen here, was too long with the boots, so I reversed the colors and went with a green skirt and blue top (the denim jacket). I added the red tee to highlight the boot laces.

My glasses are on the bathroom counter.
I also tried on three pairs of socks before I was satisfied. I need the right pair of Smartwool socks for these boots. (This is one of those "I need" statements that may or may not be true.)

I liked this outfit well enough in the morning, but by the end of the day I was wondering if I looked like Clem Kaddidlehopper. I love the boots, want to wear them, and will keep trying them out in different ways.


  1. These boots would look good with brown tights and your cute denim dress, maybe with a cute (red?) cardi over the top. And also with brown tights, your yellow halogen skirt and that sundance jacket you had on earlier this week.

    you know, you can also switch out the laces (neon yellow?!?) for an alternative, funky change.

  2. I like long skirts with short boots!
