Hush Now

Happy Monday. I hope that everyone had either a restoring and restful weekend, or one filled with some spontaneity. I had a bit of both. I fought a nasty flu type thing for the better part of the week and weekend, but found myself coming around just in time for some dates with friends, turkey chili w/ havarti covered yams, and Sunday wandering. Today was cold, and the fact that I made it through these few photos without too much evidence of that is a small success. 






I wanted to show you the wonderful boots that I received from Wanted Shoes! They were kind enough to send me off a pair of my choosing, and I'm so glad that I chose these gems. A personal tidbit is as follows: I can never find a pair of boots to fit over my calves, for which I blame the years and years of figure skating, or perhaps the genes from my father's side. Regardless, I've got some big calves for a small girl. These boots fit me perfectly, though, fulfilling my riding boot that can fit straight up over my leg dream. Thank you, Wanted! I just love em'. Excuse their dirtiness - even on their first wear, they got some snow abuse. Welcome to Canada.

I needed a coffee to warm up from the outside, and boy was it life saving. I wish everyone a lovely week. I'm planning on getting lots and lots of work done, hitting the gym after my small flu-related hiatus, and doing some soul searching/resolution making- January is almost over.

The boots look awesome! Such a great basic staple! & the dress totally works belted (this is one that you didn't think you could wear, correct?) - I like it! Photo number one is my favorite, super pretty (aside from photo number 3 of course, bahahaha, but for totally different reasons!)

I love your new boots! I need a pair of new flat black boots since my favorite pair broke in the airport :(

LOVE the boots! I know what you mean about finding ones that fit your calves - my calves are huge! My genius mother stumbled upon a pair of knee-high black boots at PAYLESS of all places that are extra wide calf! Amazing!

Um hi there. You have the cutest pouty face in the world. I like how you capitalize on it as well. Don't ever stop pouting and anything you wear will look like a Sofia Coppolla movie.
