I will be going straight out after work so needed a look that was office-appropriate, as well as restaurant- and club-appropriate.  This jacket did me well when I went to the 9:30 Club the other weekend – when it got warm I just slung it over my crossbody mini-purse.  And of COURSE I had to wear these shoes – as you know, they are the most comfortable shoes in my entire wardrobe!

And nope, didn't dye my hair.  I do have red and caramel highlights/streaks in it, and I think when it's raining the cheapy camerair?t=whaevewomneei 20&l=btl&camp=213689&creative=392969&o=1&a=B0035FZJKS really picks up those colors. 🙂

    No, I wasn’t saying it to be mean or rude. I said what I honestly thought, but I wasn’t nasty. Allie wears some really cute outfits, and I even copied a few of them, I just didn’t think the booties did her or the outfit justice, and thankfully (hopefully) it didn’t offend Allie.

    I studied Fashion & Textiles at University and have even worked with two very well known UK designers as an in-house stylist, so I do kind of have an idea of what I’m talking about.

    Kudos to the lovely Allie for being so nice.

    Oh you should wear them! You never know how it will work until you try! 🙂

    Yep, it’s 5:38 and my feet are still happy campers. Love it!

    Lookin hot! I actually think the booties work without tights. I am wondering if I can have the courage to wear mine without them this spring! I have some that are way high but are sooo comfortable too. It can happen believe it or not!

    She wasn’t trying to be mean, Kayla was offering constructive criticism. I do put myself out there as some sort of style “expert” so I accept, embrace such comments. Gotta keep it realz! 🙂

    I don’t know if I could put up with comments like that!

    I can’t believe it either, but I can wear these puppies all day long – they are my go-to shoes when I will be walking or standing a lot but need to be pulled together. And to think I wasn’t going to buy them!

    at the risk of sounding inane: I love those boots! I can’t believe they’re comfortable though.

    It’s all good Kayla, thanks!

    When I put this on today I knew that the booties weren’t the most figure-flattering choice. However I won’t be home until midnight and I needed footwear that wouldn’t give me pain and ruin my night, and between you and me (and anyone who reads these comments) I have destroyed every pair of black tights I own – my last pair has three runs being stopped by navy nailpolish and I just CAN’T wear tights again. 🙂

    Not my best sartorial choice, but I can be sure I’ll be able to dance until I turn into a pumpkin. 🙂

    Thank you for your honest feedback, I do appreciate it and I learn from it!

    You look great! I think is as great example of how to transition from office to going out.

    Honestly, I love a lot of your outfits, especially with you being a plus-size blogger and a lot of other bloggers are skinny minnies. But I don’t like this skirt/bootee combo with the expanse of bare leg. Plus, where the bootees cut off around your ankles make your ankles look huge – which they don’t normally look. I’ve seen you in much cuter outfits but I have to always be honest. Your hair looks absolutely gorgeous, the color is fantastic.

    Sorry, I don’t have a blog, hence the Anon.
