And speaking of clothes & shoes...

I just ordered these awesome boots this morning:

A great deal, too.. they are real suede leather for less than $60. I love the little metal detail.

I got them specifically to wear with wide leg jeans. I was inspired by this image from the gap:

Slowly adding staples to create my "adult" wardrobe. I'll keep you updated :)


  1. love the upgrade to adult wardrobe. i feel like i am going in the opposite direction, from 'adult couture' to modern day mama. see here:

    so fun!

  2. no, but I can ... BLOGGER!!!! I left you something on my bloggy blog ... please forgive my non existent brain since I had to EDIT when I realized something was missing!!!!

  3. I love reading about your evolving "adult wardrobe!" I feel like we're in somewhat similar places. I turned 27 in November and have been relying on hold outs from college for way too long. I'm in too good of a place right now both career-wise and in my personal life to keep dressing like crap. I consider myself a fairly stylish person, but I fall into the cheap clothes trap a lot. I'm actually a little bit addicted to shopping at places like Target, Old Navy, Marshall's, Forever 21, etc., because "OMG A DECENTLY CUTE SHIRT AND ITS ONLY TEN BUCKS!" Of course, that "decently cute shirt" never gets more than 1 or 2 wears before I realize that it wasn't worth even the $10 I paid for it. The post you wrote earlier today about quality over quantity along with the links to Kendi's blog really struck a cord with me. For too long I have tried to stretch my clothing budget to the limit by shopping for cheap clothes, reasoning that I can't afford to invest in quality pieces because my wardrobe sucks and I need a variety of new things to make it unsucky. Needless to say, while there are a few bargain pieces that have paid off, looking back I see that I've ended up spending a ton of money on shitty clothes and my wardrobe is none the better for it despite the fact that I have more stuff. I have a few long-term goals for 2011 (I hate using the phrase "resolutions") and you just inspired me to add "improve adult wardrobe" to my list. I'm definitely following a lot of Kendi's tips and overall just focusing on quality over quantity. Thank you!!!!! I am excited to follow along with you and see what you add to your collection.

  4. ps ... I CANNOT wait til this BLOGGER party! Let me know if you need any help!

  5. Glad you found my blog, Bryn! Charlotte Blogger party sounds fun! p.s. LOVE the boots!

  6. I have bought some boots with metal detail too!

    oh, those are good :) x

  9. Did you order a 1/2 size smaller like all the reviews mentioned? I'm thinking of getting them based on your post, but I think I'll order a smaller size.

    Thanks for posting. I love it when other people do the shopping for me. I bought these boots for $62 - and they turned out to be pretty nice and comfy.

  10. These are darling! And you really can't beat the price. Thanks for sharing them!

    Guess what--I have the same tall boots you chose and I love them! They are so comfortable and look amazing. Great minds think alike. ;-)

  11. I normally wear anywhere from an 8 to an 8.5, so I went ahead and ordered the 8. I figure it will be fine because I'll be wearing socks :)


THANK YOU for taking the time to share your thoughts. I appreciate each and every comment.
