WIW: Boot Weather

I had on my first ever pair of "leggings as more than workout pants" and paired them with browns and oranges.  I must say...they're pretty comfy and not see through.  I went with the Simply Vera Pencil leggings in black. I'm on the fence about the lines directing traffic over my curvy legs, but in the end, I liked the fabric content better than the plain. They have more synthetics than cotton, which I figured would lead to less color fading in the wash - and hopefully less pills.

Favorite slouchy brown sweater + my FauxFrye boots from Target.  I must say, the FauxFryes have been worth their $$ and then some - for $39 (4 years ago), they have broken in nicely and I don't feel bad wearing them in questionable weather.  Hopefully, I'll get some black ones this year.  In comparison to the real thing, these have a wider shaft, which I really like.

    You look wonderful! Seriously, if I could put that outfit on right now, I would - looks so cozy!

  • El Cee replied 8 years ago

    You look both sophisticated and comfortable. Like how the boots kind of bookend the necklace.

    the boots are great, and l like how they bookend the sweater. i hear you about the lines directing traffic were you may not want traffic to go. have you tried a sweater or top that is longer or fuller at the bottom?

    I'm so jealous of your boot weather!! I'm sitting here for what seems like day 200 in shorts. Sigh.  But you look beautiful and comfortable and so cozy.  My very favorite type of outfit and you wear it perfectly.  The sweater is beautiful on you and I think the leggings and boots both look great too.  I need to take notes!

    Lovely outfit, Von. You look great in this style of sweater, and I love the colour on you too. How fab that your boots are so comfy, love them with this outfit too. And that fun necklace is the icing on the cake.

    Von, you look fantastic! I seriously love you in that sweater. As Inge says, it's a fantastic style for you, and I love the colour both in general and on you in particular. What a wonderful sophisticated casual outfit!

    Von, that sweater really is flattering on you. I'm jealous that you found comfy & chic boots at that price that have lasted so long. :)  Great necklace too.

    Super duper gorgeous! I love this head to toe. The slouchy sweater with the leggings is just perfect and so figure flattering. Love how you toughen up the look with the boots. 

  • Emily replied 8 years ago

    You look very chic and you have fantastic legs.  Are those the tops of a pair of wooly socks peeking out of your boots?  I love the added touch of texture.

    Great look!

    The Faux Fryes are real leather - nice! I'm sharing the info with my DD, who lives in a colder climate and needs wide shaft boots. For myself, I'll be checking out the VW leggings. Thanks for the leads, and, btw, you look great!

  • Von replied 8 years ago

    Thanks ladies, but truly, it's just barely boot weather here...I'm still running in technical tank tops, I'm just wishing fall would come for real. At this rate, I anticipate still wearing peep toes through mid December!

    This sweater is one of those things I wish I had enough good sense to buy a second...but it was TJ Maxx, and sometimes they are so disorganized! I'm still looking for one in black or gray!

    I know my comment is a tad late but just had to say how wonderful you look. I love this outfit. It is a look I strive for - stylish AND comfortable. FAB!!!

  • ATLynn replied 8 years ago

    I also strive for this look on the weekends and never seem to pull it off.  You look great!
