Tempted. Day 11.

Day Eleven
Some thoughts:
1. Sorry I look so awkward. I was in a rush this morning. 
2. I can't even remember the last time I wore a dress or a skirt to work. 
3. I'm wearing two pairs of tights today.... and for some reason, it is way more comfortable than just wearing one. 
4. I've had this dress for a few years, but have only worn it a handful of times (hence, adding it to my thirty). In fact, the only time I can remember wearing it was for Cara's 21st birthday. But that was back when I was younger/thinner/tanner/blonder. Ah, the good ole days
5. I had a meeting at West County Mall last night and since I had some time to kill beforehand, I made the mistake of wandering into Forever 21. Temptation alert! I fell in love with this dress, but don't worry, I didn't it. 

tights (both pairs!), dress and cardigan from Target. boots by Chinese Laundry. belt from who know's where...

hello, de-lurking to ask a question: is there a reason you always wear the dark socks under that one pair of brown boots? i am just curious :)

super cute look today, love love love the dress.

Wow, I didn't realize how often I've been doing that.... ha!

I got a few pairs of knee high socks for christmas (a couple black pairs and a grey pair) and I guess I just like wearing them with the boots. (a) they are warm and (b) I wear the brown boots with black a lot so I feel like it ties it together well.

I've worn the gray with my black boots before, but I guess not during the challenge. And I wish I had a pair of off-white ones to wear with the brown. I think I'd like that mix.

Thanks for de-lurking! Well, and for lurking, too.

I have this dress too and I love wearing it with mustard yellow. It was in my fall 30 for 30 mix if you need any inspiration. It's honestly my favorite piece to remix because of all the colors!

Meggy, It was seriously so much more comfortable! I guess it made it more like wearing leggings. I left them on all night! Even just lounging around watching TV!

Looking for something?
