Happy Friday! I'm not terribly excited with how my pictures turned out today, but I was a little rushed this morning, so I did the best I could! Honestly I just don't feel like they do the sweater justice - this is another goodie from b. (a resale shop) and it's so soft and comfy and awesome. What you can't see in the picture is while it appears to be plain black and white, it actually has flecks of color throughout the yarn. Oh well, we work with what we got sometimes!
I have been on the fence about these boots all year so far. I don't think I've worn them until today. And I'm not totally sold on how they look with this outfit, but I'm giving it a try. I have not found a pair of black boots I've liked more than these and I know these are at least...gosh, 7 or 8 years old at this point. I'm not joking! I had them before I got married and I've been married almost six years. The perk of them is they are made of a nylon fabric that actually washes well in the washing machine. I have washed them a couple of times and hung them to dry and they still fit and look decent. Anyway, I have always wanted something a little different than these, but just haven't found a good replacement yet, so these stay in my closet year after year!
In hindsight, my gray boots would have added a bit more color contrast and lightened up the bottom half of my outfit, but I'll just go with these as is for today! Enough self analyzing. Anyone have any fun weekend plans? We're going to the roller derby, we have two roller derby leagues here in Minneapolis, the Minnesota Roller Girls and the North Star Roller Girls. We're headed to the North Star event. A friend of a friend is on one of the teams and we've been going to watch the bouts for about two years now. It's fun, cheap entertainment and we have a good time. I'm looking forward to it because we've actually already missed the first two bouts this year!
Have a great weekend!!
