All My New Things

I went shopping for a pair of practical boots on Saturday. I wanted a tall, flat, riding-style, leather boot in a cognac shade. However, the shelves at DSW were nearly bare. I ended up with a “fungi” color, instead. I’m not sure I love these, but they are practical and comfortable.


Sweater, Nordstrom Rack (I’ll look up the brand, later). Turtleneck, gloves, and skirt, Mossimo. Tights, Anne Klein. Boots, Matisse. Belt, thrifted. Bag, vintage. Scarf, Images (gift). Necklace, Zad.

I was also looking for a long sweater that I could wear as outerwear or a tunic. I think this one will do.


Lastly, I bought these tights on impulse. I’ve admired this color on other bloggers (like E), but wasn’t sure enough of the shade to place a We Love Colors order and pay for shipping. This Anne Klein pair was near the checkout at DSW and I’m very happy with the color (and quality). Next time, I’ll try them layered under black lace tights (again, like E).

January spending is complete! A budget report will follow at the end of the month.

I like the splash of red! It pairs well with the green in your scarf :)

Riding boots are, for me, the best investment one can make. They are classic and practical. I buy mine from Santana of Canada--they are waterproof leather and have rubber soles. You snatched a great pair at Dsw. I love the contrasting straps.
Red tights are so much fun, no? I wore them for christmas with red shoes....fun.
You scored on all accounts! Paula

DSW.com still has TONS of boots (and free shipping, return to local store). All of the stores here have been cleared out, too.

Those boots are great, the DSW by me was picked over before Christmas! I wore red tights yesterday also :)

I adore the grey boots (they remind me of Siamese cats with that darkening on the toes!).

Red tights are awesome - I love mine!

I totally love those boots!
They are fabulous and whenever you are tired of the fungi tone, you can always dye them.
