So, yes, today we left our house only to go to the airport to pick up my mother-in-law and go back home. Since I knew I wouldn't be outdoors for a long time (and I'd treated them yesterday), I obviously wore my new boots. Their awesomeness is such that it couldn't even be contained in a photo:
I'd like to point out that I used my normal camera settings instead of my amped up indoor settings and, uh, today's photo looks better. Is my camera special? I was debating wearing my sweater dress as a top (fearing it was too long in combination with the knee-high boots) and looking at the pictures, I realize that my fears are correct. A little more leg would've helped the proportions of this outfit. Not that it matters so much, as the boots are the stars...
For such amazing footwear, I definitely managed to capture the least flattering pictures of them ever. Well, just imagine them as seen above, but awesomer. I love them, people. They were comfy, I wore them for hours (and I was on my feet for most of the time) and no problems occurred. I want to canonize them. My husband wants to canonize them. Frye? I love you.
[Funny story: my sister-in-law received Frye boots for Christmas from my brother! Great minds, eh?]
Anyway, since I'll be wearing these boots every day for the rest of my life, you'll have plenty of opportunities to see better pictures of them when I'm not too rushed to zoom out just a little more and get the whole damn foot in the picture, goddamnit.
My mother-in-law, as is her wont, came to town bearing gifts. She went to the same jewelry store in Sparta (Christidi) where I bought my flower ring and she bought a matching necklace! Behold the prettiness!
Fun, no? I love the silver threads. I can't wait to premier this necklace together with its matching ring. So many outfits churning through my brain! Too much!
So anyway, despite the craziness going on outside, it's been a lovely day and we're excited for the upcoming week full of family and celebrations. I hope all of your weekends were lovely!
