Over the Top

Ever put together an outfit that has just a little too much going on? I think that is what happened with this one. While it isn’t a bad one, it just is a little busy. I think wearing black boots would have streamlined it a bit more. Or if I could of went bare legged, these ankle boots would still work.


Speaking of those boots, I thought I would wear them a lot more when I added them to my closet last year. I figured they were neutral, shorter, plus fun detailing. But what I have found is that they cut my legs off at a weird spot, so you have to match with a dress/skirt that shows enough leg to make me not look stumpy. Do you ever have a item you think will work great in your closet and then it ends up being not so much?
