dotty, neon cuffs, and day eleven

day eleven, dash dot dotty, stuart weitzman pantalon boots, foldover leather boots, j.crew gigi pants, ponte pants, j.crew factory
coat: zara
hidden neon cardigan: target
print shirt: juicy couture (exactly)
pants: j.crew factory (exactly)
boots: stuart weitzman (similar)
cowl: handknit

[three things]
1. i am totally in heart with these boots.  rambling back story: a bunch of winters ago, i bought a pair of gray old navy boots that turned out to be the best cheap boots ever (seen here).  by last winter they were completely falling apart, so i attempted to replace them with what i thought was a similar black pair, also from old navy (seen here).  unfortunately, they were uncomfortable and poorly made.  this year i thought i might just stick with short boots since leather tall boots are a bit of an investment.  but then i was at nordstrom rack after work and the shoe aisles were blissfully cart-free, so i tried on a whole bunch of boots.  these are from a past season, so they were nicely marked down into my price range.  at first i wasn't sure about how the foldover detail creates some bunching, but that goes with the territory of soft pull-on boots.

2. i am so much happier with investment purchases in the long run, but it is still really hard for me to pull the trigger on big purchases.  i need a good mantra for this!

3. my winter coats are all freshly dry-cleaned and ready to go.  i'm on the lookout for a new winter hat to spice things up though.
