Why, you ask? Because these are on my (very happy) feet today:
For years I've been pretty vocal about my belief that Uggs and their brethren were the scourge of the footwear world. But when I tore open my Christmas present from my father today (I'm an adult so I am not required to delay gratification), I fell in love with these cozy beauties. So now I'm eating my words because although these are not Uggs- they're from a New Zealand company called Canterbury Sheepskin- the idea is pretty much the same.
These are acceptable, right? As long as I never wear them with bare legs and mini skirt in the middle of winter? (Yes, UCD undergrads, bare legs in the freezing cold is ri-dic-u-lous, even if your boots are very warm.)
Today's outfit was inspired by this lovely blogger. I'm a sucker for stripes. I found myself obsessed with the way her striped sleeves were sticking out of her coat. I love the look of layered sleeves. My rendition doesn't have the same sweet sophistication hers does but, for house cleaning, which is what I did today, I think it's pretty snazzy.
