Eyes Wide Shut


 I think I just got the deepest sleep known to man...you know, making up for a whole weekend of really late nights up. But I'd still be more than happy to go back here to Bryant Park and just shut my eyes and nap. Speaking of which, my sister totally thought I put this look together blindfolded or something. Yes, the mix of deep reds, yellows, browns, and a pop of green are a funky mix, but I'm sort of diggin it. There really is nothing I love more than a gorgeous Spring dress with a boyish pair of boots (is it obvious I wear these everyday?) I'm pretty sure all of my friends are tired of seeing me in them, but come on, when I love a pair of boots, I will wear them endlessly, every single day, until the sole comes apart. I've got a pretty legitimate love for these brown lace-ups and wouldn't be surprised if I get teary when they take their last step!

Gorgeous shoes! Looks like it was a sort of darker more dreary day so putting the tights underneath was a really great idea.

Lovely, relaxed look. And I recognise your passion for your boots - I have a pair of brown chelsea boots that are my constant companion in footsteps. I'll be devastated when they wear out.
