[OOTD] Whisperings of Snow

This OOTD is actually from last Friday.  We had dinner reservations with friends at 6pm and I knew I wouldn't have much time between work and getting home before heading over to the restaurant.  So I wore to work the outfit I wanted to wear out... my new Whispering Vespers sweater. 

Since there was still a lot of snow and slush on the ground I wore my Miz Mooz Riding Boots to work, and then changed into my Ash Ono Boots before dinner to not be quite so casual. (see the polyvore here)

Miz Mooz King Boots (here)
Necklaces F21

The weather forecast is calling for more snow, and worse 1/4" of ice ::womp womp::.... looks like my boots will be getting a lot more use... any one else tired of mother nature's frozen tears??? Wake me up in time for spring... until then I'll be snuggling in the cashmere sweater above ;)

  3. Hi Mrs. Strawberryswing! I'm in Northern VA so I definitely understand your frustration with mother nature and all her frozen glory. I absolutely love those Miz Mooz boots. Right now it appears they are sold out at Nordstrom. Do you think they'll be coming back? I'd really love to get a pair finally.

  4. Thanks MJ!

    AmyK - its the cozy sweater ever... I love that I'm super comfy yet still somewhat stylish in it.. double win :)

    Angel-Lyn - I dont know if Nordstrom will be getting more... Endless.com (linked above) has them in 4 different colors, of course they only have brown in size 10, but the bordeaux, black, and grey are available in all sizes - also, go a 1/2 size down from your usual! GL!

  8. Natasha - Definitely, I spend my nights (and snow days) normally in sweats, I like to put a little effort in the days I do have things planned, nothing like other bloggers to inspire!

    Elizabeth - Thats great that you have the boots in two colors, they were great bang for the buck. Thanks about the pennant!

    Rosa - Thanks lady! and yeah, I'd rather get another 12"+ of snow then all this ice they are talking about..
