We found this great gray knit dress by Caslon at Nordstrom, one of our favorite stores. It's washable and well-priced. It can be worn for work, or dressed up with pumps and sparkly jewelry for evening. Pat chose tights and flats and a Stella & Dot necklace. The simplicity of the dress allows lots of bracelets to jazz it up. It traveled to California and back without a wrinkle. Add a jacket on cold days or wear it into spring. This dress was a great find! #knits #Nordstrom #dresses #Caslon
We'll definitely be heading to the Rodeo this year, but even if you decide not to, we all want our boots to be as comfortable as possible. Socks help with this but can sometimes be too bulky.
Check out these great boot tights we found at Oolala in Houston! They are like knee high socks for comfort but are the thickness of tights so not too bulky. They are finished off with a cute lace band around the top so if anyone does see our 'socks' we'll still look great!
In a previous posting we pointed out that the bootie (ankle boot) didn't look quite right when worn with skirts. So, if you can't wear those with your skirts in the colder months, what will look right?
Take a look at the styles we are showing here. They show that when it comes to skirts in winter, the following usually work:
1. Wear tights. Thin pantyhose just won't work, plus the thicker tights are much better at keeping your legs warm. Don't forget, as we have posted in our Q & A section, tights do not have to be plain; there are some great subtle patterns available to add some interest.
2. Enclosed & solid shoes. What we mean by this is a style of shoe that covers a large part of the foot. Anything with open sides, or toes, will not look right when trying to pull off the keep warm, winter look. Heels or flats will both look great.
3. Knee high boots. This look works as long as the skirt (or sweater dress) is not too short & the boots fall just below the knee. If the boots are too short you run the risk of making your legs look stumpy as they will visually 'cut' your legs at the wrong spot.
