Top - Merona
Skirt - Guess
Tights - Merona
Boots - Nine West
Today's outfit was inspired by my own thoughts about the last outfit post that I made. Within that post I mentioned that I was wearing some of my favorite boots, but that they were covered by my jeans, which I liked and didn't like. Today, I am doing something that I don't necessarily like, I am wearing boots with a skirt. But the thing that makes it oh so much more appealing to me, are the black tights. The tights allow for the look of the boot to carry up the leg to the skirt.
What I don't like about skirts and boots is the segmented look that they can create. What I mean by that, is that you have the dark color of the boot, all of mine are black, the light color of the leg skin, and then the color of the skirt. This turns the lower half of your body into three distinct segments. This often has the effect of making the legs look shorter. I don't know if it is true or not, but I feel as though my legs are shorter than I would like, and I try to make them look longer rather than shorter. So by matching my boot color with my tights it makes my legs look longer.
You get the same effect by wearing a nude color heel with a skirt. The shoe blends with your leg color and makes your legs look that much longer.
Today I wore this outfit to go shopping at Costco. Wow, it was really crowded today for a Sunday morning Oh well, I still got everything that I needed.
Okay, love ya!
