Anyone who works in healthcare knows there isn't really any "down time" but at least after working today, I will be off until Monday - whoo hoo!!!
Today's outfit was born out of necessity. We're having a wee lunch today for our office and will need to walk about 5 blocks to the restaurant…in the slushy snow. So I knew I wanted to wear knee high boots to keep the slush from splashing up on the back of my pant legs and that I would want something I could walk briskly in, stay warm and have good grip on the slush. So first item chosen was my cognac knee high boots - warm, incredibly comfy, good grip for walking.
So based on the boots, I decided to go with an old favourite colour combo of mine - black and cognac. I grabbed my slim fit ponte knit pants and tucked them into the boots. Then I popped on a white cami and added my cream animal print mixed media drapey tee. On top of that, I've got on my black suit blazer with scrunched sleeves.
I added my two-tone cognac leather handbag to bookend the boots, my rose gold/black watch and red specs for accessories.
I really like how this outfit ended up looking a little bit corporate mixed with a little bit of an equestrian vibe. What do you think? Does it all work together? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
Tee: Lord & Taylor Petite
Boots: Hush Puppies
I wish each and every one of you Happy Holidays and hope you have time to relax, enjoy time with friends and family, and of course, some tasty goodies :)
