What I'm Wearing 08.05.09

This morning I decided to stop resisting the cloudy weather and just join along, with a more somber palette of my own. But as luck would have it, the sun decides to peek out and I find myself mismatching the weather again. Darn you spring, don't be such a woman! Seeing the sun again makes me wish I had something to do outside this evening. It's been a mellow day. I watched Raiders of the Lost Ark and started reading The Time Machine. Maybe that had a slight influence on the earthy colour palette?


I'm wearing a thrifted blazer, shirt, beaded top, shoes and hat, and Urban Behaviour skirt.

I just purchased these shoes yesterday. I've been secretly wanting to buy a pair of Docs since last summer. Last fall, when it was cold and murky and I was sick of wearing rainboots, I really wished I had some of my own. This pair has a similar feel, but they're more sleek and thin. I'm looking forward to beating them up, which won't be too difficult, considering the sorry state of my Aldo wedges... All I know about the booties is that they're made in Canada by a brand called Henri Pierre, which sells at Sears. I know, I'm so fashionable, right? But it feels like I'm walking on clouds!

I think your booties are the better version of Docs.

I actually really like the boots. They are a lot sleeker than Docs, which is good in my book.

Ugh, it's always cloudy here when it's going to be sunny and the opposite when its going to be cloudy, so it seems like I'm always dressed wrong.

I love those boots, you're right, they are totally slimmed down docs. And that plaid blazer looks great, makes me want the begining of the schoolyear (which is saying something, considering i'm nearly praying for the school year to end.

I love them! I've been wanting flat, lace up ankle boots that look like a pair of Doc Martens, but maybe more like their older, more sophisticated sister with a college education- these are perfect!
