This is what I wore Saturday night out to Worcester for a friend's birthday party. I wanted something classic and comfortable, but most of all I wanted to be warm and show off my new riding boots! It has been so cold the past few days, colder than I remember it being last winter. We've received a good amount of snow too, it's snowing right now, I love it! Last week I took advantage of a promotion through work and ordered myself a new pair of boots, a dress, and a winter jacket, everything came right in time for the negative degree weather, thank goodness or else I would still be freezing! I have never been much of a boot person- mostly because I despise socks- but they're a necessary accessory when you live in New England. I seem to have recently hit the jackpot boot-wise, because I now have them practically coming out my ears! I found another pair at the swap on Thursday that I can't wait to show off.
Anyways, like I said I wanted something classic. I kept my accessories simple with just a gold belt, and brass earrings and necklace. I love these earrings, they were kindly sent over by Noble Town Vintage and I've been wearing them non-stop. I found that once my hair reached a certain length, I stopped wearing earrings as much, because I couldn't really see them. But now I think it's all about the style you wear. These are eye-catching enough to not get lost in my tresses, but don't weigh me down either. Check back tomorrow for a chance to win a pair for yourself!
This week I'm focusing on a shop update, which was supposed to happen last week. I have a ton of stuff to list, but all that stuff needs to be ironed! And guess what?! It's my birthday week!
