tights + flat boots = fall bliss



As I type this my fingers are a wee-bit cold from taking the doggie out for his early morning walk. If I didn't see the palm trees swaying I wouldn't believe it myself, "Is this Florida?" I said to myself.

It's chilly. 48 degrees to be exact. The weather folks say there's a cold front hitting us pretty hard, and well, I'm not complaining.

It gives me an excuse to begin working on a combo I've longed to rock -- tights and flat boots. Skirt1_2

This look screams style and class. It's part equestrian, part funky! I grew to love this look during my college years in Richmond, VA -- a preppy southern city where the right boot is a must.

I'm still on the hunt for the perfect flat boot, tights combo.But I'm thinking dark  brown leather, like these from Nine West

Ninewestflat14999_2 They're a little pricey at about $150, but I think they've got staying power so I'll consider them an investment buy. Luckily a pair of good tights doesn't have to run you more than $10. I adore this argyle pair at Kohls. 

There are a lot of great styles for cheap out there, have a look!

Flatboot3599 Wanna a little slouch in your life? Go for this suede pair at Target. Only $35.99. Pair them with an unpredictable color, like my favorite: green! Check out this pair of Kermit-esque tights and make them envy you with each strut.

Diba7495Bet on black --that's what I always say. This pair of boots from DSW are funky, yet reserved and decently priced at $74.95. Go a little crazy with a pair of animal print tights. Love this pair from JC Penny.
