See what I mean (arrgh, graininess!)? I finally, non-guiltily, went back to my beloved wool striped long cardigan, and it felt great to wear it again. I originally planned to wear my grey Fryes with this outfit (especially since they're a different shade of grey), but I remembered my grey suede slouchy boots and I thought they'd look better with this outfit. I like the look on a whole, but I think the Fryes would've been more flattering on my legs; see below:
See what I mean (my hunched position isn't helping either)? It's okay, though. I did quite like the overall effect anyway. Also, these boots are on their last legs and I plan to keep them throughout this winter before doing away with them: the soles are cracking quite alarmingly (and the boots themselves have almost no support). I'm hesitant about repairing them because they've had a good run (I bought them in July of 2008) and I have so many other boots of better quality that it'll be nice to maybe start simplifying things.
On an amusing note, today in the Boston Metro paper, I read that some lady (a fashionista, perchance?) said that people would/should no longer be wearing skinny jeans or grey and black palettes.
