Blue, Boots, Belt: September 30th, 2010

Event: Work

Outfit: Blue long-sleeved tee: Gap; Skirt: CAbi (handed down from Mom); Belt: Forever 21; Earrings: Walmart; Necklace: Urban Outfitters (gift from Anna); Boots: Hot Kiss via Famous Footwear (2008)

I didn’t see myself wearing any skirts that dared even go a couple of inches above the knee to work (for anyone new—HI!—this is due to working with preschoolers…not a strict dress code), but with boots somehow it felt just fine. Once tights are a frequent part of my outfits? Should be a valid go-to option during the work week!

The week has definitely been improving since Monday—thank you for your kind comments! I’ve been taking it fairly easy after work…more DVR and laundry, less paperwork. Tonight I made dinner for Adam and myself (which was consumed on the balcony! Today is gorgeous!) and then one of Adam’s high school friends briefly & randomly dropped by on his way to Chicago. After he left I went out for a drink to bid adieu to Martin, who leaves Milwaukee tomorrow. Definitely a bittersweet evening….I know we’ll miss him.

So…let’s focus on some positives. 1) My car passed its emissions test today, 2) Paycheck numero dos went through!, 3) These—admittedly rather ubiquitous—boots are on their way to me (on sale!), 4) Checking out the Milwaukee Film Festival tomorrow, 5) It’s almost Friday, 6) We have both sharp cheddar cheese and wine in the apartment right now, so I’m pretty much a happy camper.

Hope you have a wonderful Friday! I think I’m going to celebrate the end of the week by baking a couple of pumpkin pies…though that means I really must go on a whipped cream mission…

  1. Extremely cute outfit … and the boots….. FABULOUS!

    Yours Truly

  2. SO jealous it’s cold enough there for you to dress like this!

  3. so love the outfit…isn’t it great it is finally cool enough to wear boots…that blue looks so good on you…love the boots!

  4. Glad to hear the week got a bit better. I love the belt and those Steve Madden boots are making their way to me too! I bought them from Piperlime, thought they would be ok but after walking around the house a little (and taking an outfit picture!) I realized I needed a 1/2 size bigger. Hope you love them!

    • Thanks! And good to know…I have huge feet, but am hoping it works out (went with the larger size). They’re $87 on Amazon right now if you wind up going for a larger size! 🙂

  5. Ooh, this outfit is so autumnally classy. I love the colors, and the boots, and the general classiness.

    Happy weekend, my dear Elena!

  6. Love this look! So simple and classic…matching belt and skirt. It is quite flattering too!
