For the First Time.

Today was my first time ever wearing boots with a skirt. I have always been jealous of people who could pull off the look and said it would never work for me. Well, when I had this outfit on this morning and added the belt, I knew the color of these boots was perfect for the oufit. So I decided I would just try it, nothing else, just try and then take them off. Then I decided it actually wasn't too bad. I tried on heels and thought the outfit lacked. So I then faced a huge dilemma with about 1.5 minutes to decide; boots or no boots? I went downstairs, took my outfit pictures and decided I wasn't feeling brave enough for the boots. Then I decided I was feeling brave but brought along my heels- just incase. Well, I am so glad I wore them because they ended up being a huge hit and I didn't even need to get my heels out! 

Does anything else have things they were scared to wear for the first time?



Skirt: Goodwill $4.99
Sweater: Nordstrom, BP $10
Skirt: Forever21 $7
Belt: Goodwill $2
Boots: Charlotte Russe $15 
Necklace: JcPennys $6? 

Here is the outfit that I almost wore before I became brave



What do you think? Boots or no boots? Be honest!

  3. I like the boots better! Of course, I love boots, so that *may* have something to do with it. ;) But boots and skirts are a great combo - you should do it more often!

    1. Thank you! I loveee the boots and the color but struggled with what to wear them with because they always looked so odd with pants. Turns out skirts work perfect with them!

  12. I think the boots really make the outfit pop! It was a brave choice, but a beautiful one! I am a little afraid to pair boots with pencil skirts but you did it beautifully!

  17. you look beautiful! both looks work for you, just depends on what kind of vibe you want to go with that day. boots are bit more fun and casual, while the heels are a bit more formal. love the blues!

  22. Cute boots but I like the heels better with this outfit - heels seem more appropriate for office environment too. But then again, maybe I need to be more creative with my work attire :) - joy
