Today was another arctic day, folks. I swear, my body seems to be going into hibernation: it is NOT having this weather. And it's only going to get worse. Oh, I'm a ball of sunshine in the winter, I am.
Ironically enough, though, my husband's institute had a faculty and staff party today with a Hawaiian theme - because nothing says "Hawaii" like Boston in December ... right? Anyway, I decided to kind of make a big thing out of it and use it as an excuse to dress up a little - I even wore my contacts! I also really wanted to wear my Fluevogs, and well ... I really like how it all turned out:
Finally, FINALLY you get to see a decent action shot of my hair elastic with black rose that I've tried so hard to showcase here (only didn't) and here (super messy). See? Every once in a while I clean up nicely!
Anywho, I did like this outfit a whole lot and I was overjoyed to wear my 'Vogs out on the town - this was their first time venturing out of the Cambridge city limits! I was, for some reason, a little timid about how bright they were and wearing them in public (I don't know why I get so self-conscious - it's not like I'm going to be the victim of random violence because of disapproval toward my yellow boots, yet I can be super-timid about these things), but I think they really made the look. Especially since, being named after an operetta singer, they were the most appropriate shoes I have for visiting a music-based institute.
Also? I wasn't so bothered by them this time. I mean, yes, I was relieved to take them off when I got home, but for the first time, I also felt as if I could've gone several more rounds in them. Well played, yellow boots. Well played. I'm now actively trying to figure out when and how next to wear them. Any suggestions?
