OUTFIT: Brrrr...it's getting cold!!


It has been getting COLD around here, ladies!  The next couple days are supposed to be a little warmer, but then we are getting hit by a big cold front.  Yuck!  I'm a sissy when it comes to the cold.

My favorite "go-tos" when it gets cold are: a really cozy fuzzy sweater, and infinity scarf, and booties.  It just screams warmth to me!  I've been a little obsessed with this cobalt blue color that I've been seeing everywhere.  I love it!

 I'm still not sold on these black booties though...  I bought them online and I LOVED them in the picture.  I didn't realize they they had a built in platform with the heel.  So basically I feel like a giant! lol!  I'm about 5'8" tall so these make me insanely tall.  I was way taller than my hubby when we went out and it made me slightly uncomfortable...lol!  But they're soooo cute!


What do you ladies think?  Keep the booties or get rid of them??

  2. You look SO fabulous in this, Julie!! You are pretty brave to wear a skirt when it's cold. I have so many cute dresses and tights but it's hard for me to force myself to wear them ;)

  9. First, I agree with everyone else that you look great in that blue. As far as the booties, they are cute but you obviously do not feel comfortable in them, and that's a deal breaker for. If my clothes & shoes don't make me look and feel great then they aren't doing their job properly and I need to look for a replacement. :)

  10. Thank you so much! And I completely agree about the booties. While they are completely adorable, I don't see myself wearing them often because of how uncomfortable they make me. Maybe I will give them one more shot and if I still feel that way then they are out! Thanks again Gina!

  11. Love the outfit! The cobalt blue is great! I'm glad to see someone else loving it... my high school girls basketball team is that color so I kinda feel like I have to have 3 or 4 shirts/scarves in that color that I rotate through the season. But every time I buy something specifically to coach in, I always think how much I actually like that color.

    As far as the booties... they're so cute! But when you don't feel comfortable in them, that's not fun. My hubby is about 3-4 inches taller than me so when I wear really tall shoes, I feel taller than him too. Some of those really tall shoes I'll wear for a girls night out or something when I'm not with him. Just a thought. But then again, you know how much I love my black booties!!

  14. The only problem with me wearing them for just girl's nights is that every single one of my girl friends are wayyyy shorter than me already. haha! I'm not sure what I will end up doing with them. Maybe I will give them just a little longer to see if they grow on me...lol

  15. One of my favorite color combinations! Those booties are just too cute - hope you adjust to wearing them.

  16. Those shoes are really cute, but I tend to stay away from heels because I'm way too clumsy for them. Haha.


    And I'm loving the color pop with that top. The texture looks great on it.

  17. I think I am going to try them for a third time to see if I like them more. I hope I do because they really are cute!

  18. I'm pretty good in heels, but with the platforms too, they are just a little too high for me. I feel like I'm towering over everyone! haha.
