{I heart boots}

I really, really do. (really)

There are few things that I love about winter, but one of them is wearing tall boots with a cozy pair of tights and a skirt...which has become my winter work wardrobe. Some people think I'm crazy for wearing a skirt when it is 10 degrees outside, but I find it much warmer than a pair of dress pants and flats that let the snow and cold air in.

It is super cold out today and we have a decent blanket of snow on the ground so I pulled out my brown leather/suede Bjorn boots that I got for a steal a few winters ago - I think I paid $30 for them on clearance. I paired them with black tights, a tan skirt, black sweater and cream dressy t-shirt. Who says you can't wear brown with black? I don't wear these often...usually I stick to my dressier tall brown or black boots, but these are great on a really cold winter day.

And because I think it is weird to post just a photo of my legs, here is my upper half today. Hello blog friends!

I have been dying to add a pair of gray boots to my wardrobe, for the last three winters actually. It is so difficult to find a pair of simple gray boots that aren't $200 + though.

I finally ordered a pair from Sears and got them in the mail yesterday...I was sooo excited to try them on. But they were a huge FAIL. Too tight and just not quite the right style. So, back to the drawing board I go. Here are a few more options that I might try...

These from Aldo are cute and are on sale right now which is a bonus...

Or these from Eddie Bauer which are significantly more $$ than I want to spend...maybe I'll find a spare $60 laying around the house...

I found a great pair searching through flickr that are from Target, but of course they are out of stock. Boo! Maybe they will restock them in a 9 1/2 just for me?!?! They are a tad clunky, but sometimes I want clunky. :)

Just for fun here are some cute photos of cute girls wearing gray boots. :) (all from flickr)

The last three are really making me want suede ones. I know the right pair will come along - hopefully before spring arrives!

Cute outfit! Target has gray boots, I have them in cognac and love them. Plus they are pretty cheap!

I can't see your leg pic! BOO!

That red-headed girl has the Dusty pose down pat, doesn't she?!

I love the gray and black outfit (the last picture). I wish I had that on right now.

Brown can totally go with black. As Stacey and Clinton say, they are both neutral and as such can not possibly clash! I see it more and more often :)

When I was pregnant with Alex, my feet grew from a 9 to a 9 1/2 and I'm having a much harder time finding anything in that size!
