outfit post: maroon sweater, black skinny jeans, black riding boots

How about a random & pretty funny throw back Saturday post? I was looking through the archives of my old (now defunct) blog and below is a post from 10/10/2006 about my newly purchased Target boots. Format look familiar? :)


Oct 10, 2006

Inspired by Banana Republic outfit but totally Target . . .

I couldn't wait to wear my new boots to the movies tonight! The FL weather was just cool enough to not be ridiculous wearing them.

When I initially tried the boots on with my everyday boot cut jeans I had to tuck and pull and wedge the extra fabric to be able to zip the boots. I decided that, even though I could never wear them with anything else (unless I wanted to be a huge ice cream cone of a silhouette), I was going to have to bite the bullet and buy skinny jeans. But right before we left for the movie - inspiration struck! My denim capris! Way less fabric! I tried it out and they worked perfectly!

I still think wearing skinny jeans without boots makes my body look like an ice cream cone. :)


  1. I feel the same way about skinny jeans! I bought one pair (for $10 at Areopostal of all places) years ago, and they are my go-to pair for tall boots :).

  2. Ha, I thought I was the only one who looked at myself and thought, 'ice cream cone legs'! I totally feel ya on that. But you do not look like an ice cream cone in this picture! Love the look.

    1. Thanks! I think the tall boots help balance it out. :)
