Ugly Boots, Cute Scarf

<span class=.JPG

We've been having a rough. snowy winter in New York which means that I've been stuck wearing ugly shoes fairly often. I bought these hiking boots a decade ago when my family went on a cruise to Alaska and since then they've basically functioned as ugly, but sufficient winter boots. On the upside they keep my feet nice and dry so I try and focus on that and make the best out of a bad shoe situation. After all I'm wearing a purple scarf with elephants on it, how bad can the outfit be?

And finally I have to give you a close-up of my eyeliner, which is the first time in my life I saw a makeup product reviewed in a magazine and then actually went out and bought it. I don't normally wear eye makeup because I'm too blind to apply it unless I'm wearing contacts and I don't normally wear contacts. I do however wear contacts in snow or rain because those make my glasses fog up making it impossible to see. It was snowing, so I wore contacts and was able to wear my new liquid gold eyeliner from Bobbi Brown. How fun is it!

  1. love both the scarf and the eyeliner and I live in Canada, so I know all about ugly but essential boots.

  2. I love your style and confidence.

  3. I think my favorite thing about this outfit is the brown cardigan:) It might be partly because I connot get the long cardigan look to work for me no matter what I do:( Oh, and I love the eyeliner!

  4. Oh those poor maligned boots. They work so hard for you! ;-)

  5. speaking of Bobbi Brown..they are offering a Valentine's gift day event which they will give a great discount for some limited stuff..maybe I'm going for their Limited Edition Modern Classic Lip & Eye Palette.

  6. That scarf is sooo cute. Love, love, love, love, love. Can you get any cuter than elephants? Just a great accent piece.

  8. Those boots are not either ugly. I LOVE the colors you're wearing! Pretty pretty!

  9. They look like sister colors, navy, violet and purple. I guess why you called your boots us ugly because it's not fit on the colors of the dress right?

  10. Yesterday, my friend bought a christian louboutin pumps sale which is so beautiful, i am surprised by the design and style.
