Date Night

Date Night
Despite my online shopping trips for every accessory I can find for my new SLR, I haven't yet found a tripod. In the meantime I'm leaning the camera on any flat surface I can find, and in this case,our cabinet faces our television. I said all of that to finally say, don't mind the video game controller. We are suddenly obsessed with Netflix, so it's never far from the couches in the living room.

Christmas Eve, when I opened my gift from my sister-in-law-kind-of-ish ( sister-in-dating?) I may have squealed out-loud. These boots are fantastic, they are the perfect color and they are just my style. How lucky am I? By Christmas evening I had these boots sprayed with the necessary suede protecting spray, and waiting next to my closet. I decided their debut would occur on date night.
Date Night
Except date night that week took place in the middle of a snow storm. These boots will keep my ankles warm, but I need a bit more surface area under my feet when there are more than 8 inches in the forecast. Every time I'd near the closet I could see their sad little faces just waiting for the perfect outfit. When an invitation for a surprise birthday dinner came last week, I knew it was finally time. I went with the Gray Skinny Jeans, because they are unbelievably comfortable. I wore the cream sweater and yellow cardigan because it is cold outside. What can I say? My boots may not count as ' practical', but the rest of me certainly does. The best development of the night, besides the amazing habatchi meal, was that these boots are fantastic. They are comfortable, my feet stayed dry and warm and they spent their night being showered in compliments. These boots kept me standing during the Cha-Cha slide, and even carried me through the Cupid Shuffle. Amazing gift sister-in-law.
