lookbook: winter boots

I am officially in winter mode. All my winter clothes and shoes are out and we've pulled out the down comforter for our bed. I bought these boots a few years ago and they are still one of my favorite boots for the winter. I can walk in them for hours and they never hurt my feet and they look pretty dang cool!

And um yea, these pictures are kinda silly but I had to make do when J was out for the afternoon and not able to take my picture!

What I'm wearing:
Sweater: Banana Republic
Skirt: Aritzia
Leggings: Forever21
Boots: BCBG
Hat: Forever21

I like this skirt as it is pretty versatile, I can wear it as a slim pencil skirt down to my knees or I can pull it up like I did here. The only problem is that the waist bunches when I pull it up so that's why I have that weird wrinkle around my midsection in the middle picture.

Leggings have been my favorite thing for the winter. I am always cold but I love wearing dresses and skirts so it is great when I can wear leggings with my skirts as it keeps me a bit warmer. I'm a bit of a cheapskate when it comes to leggings so I just get them all at Forever 21. I have about 12 pairs from there. haha! I don't do laundry that often so I just stockpile my staples. Oh and these ribbed cuff ones are my favorites! They are thicker than their regular leggings and the waistband is pretty comfy.

I have yet to get into the shiny leggings like Miss Lohan here and several other fashion bloggers. Not sure if I have the guts or the personality to pull them off. I am kind of into these zipper ones, but seriously who wants to pay $123 for some leggings?

  4. I love this outfit and your boots! I totally agree about the leggings, stocking up at Forever 21 is the way to go! I just bought a shiny pair from AA though, I was hesitant at first, but I couldn't resist and they're great!

  5. so with you on the leggings ...seriously hope they never go out of style. I have some shiny fake leather ones from AA. ...they're okay but don't look quite leathery enough. What's good is that dresses don't get caught on them like on cotton ones or tights. Love those boots!!! ...and I have that exact hat in black :)

  6. I am in love with your boots. I have been wanting a pair of strappy ones like that this fall. And I get all my leggings from F21 too! I have to try those ribbed ones now.

    We just started talking about doing a road trip next year to Seattle, probably in April. So yeah, we definitely should hang out! I'll keep you posted. And likewise if you're ever down in LA :]

  12. i loove leggings and feel the same way about extending the wear of my skirts & dresses into the fall. ;-) my fave leggings come from target; also dirt cheap but a bit softer than the f21 ones. i just can't get into the shiny leggings. i wanted to like them, i really did!

  13. Wow, those are some impressive boots. I love leggings, but I usually just throw them on underneath jeans to keep an extra layer between my skin and the wind. Looks very nice, as always!

  14. They are some boots, Tiffany.

    zip leggings are cool.. how much value you will get out is the question to answer I guess. I don't think you will get that much out. Pretty tho!
