This might be my favorite outfit so far:
I’m bummed I don’t remember where I got the tights, although it was probably somewhere ordinary, like Macy’s or JCPenney. I also can’t tell which earrings I was wearing (whoops), but the necklace was, like a lot of my jewelry, a gift.
And this was the worst photo day! Somehow my usual lighting setup wasn’t working, and only one of my photos was really usable.
But hey, it’s ye olde waist-cincher belt, and ye olde awesome flat boots! I love wearing my buckle-laden black boots with those lacy tights, mostly because I feel like a fraud if I try to go all-out feminine or all-out punk.
Did I tell you the story of how I got these boots? When I first got my leggings, I decided it was time to try the brave new world of flat boots – again, two years after everyone else was already wearing them. I had a couple Nordstrom gift cards, so I ventured out to Nordstrom Rack to check out their shoe selection. Long story short, thanks to those gifts cards and the Rack’s reduced shoe prices, I got these rad boots without spending a dollar of my own money. So yes, ladies and gentlemen, the best things in life are free – and kind of badass, if I do say so myself.
