Matter of Instinct

"Style is primarily a matter of instinct" ~Bill Blass
I took these photos a couple weeks ago when we had over 20 inches of snow on the ground and it was freezing outside. Ever since I was a little girl I have always loved sitting in this window during and just watch the world outside, especially on winter days like this. I often curl up with a blanket and pillow and a good book or magazine and just relax and enjoy the day.

I feel very Alice in Wonderland in these pictures. The being bigger/taller than the windows part. Have you seen that movie yet? I HIGHLY recommend it and I highly suggest that if you can- see it in 3D! It was so awesome!

I am not stick thin. I never will be. I have larger thighs and a big butt and sometimes this makes finding jeans hard. It also means that you will rarely see me in leggings and tight jeans. With that said I always envy those who wear jeans over leggings and have been on the constant hunt for knee high boots that I could wear over jeans. Finally after hunting all last winter and this winter I found a pair that I adore! They're a little slouchy which I love and I adore the tie detail on them. These boots are by Dolce Vita and I snagged them on clearance at shopbop.com (Sorry but they're all sold out now) I love wearing lace tights with simple outfits! My father on the other hand thought these were ugly and thought I was taking naughty pictures! haha My dad is also a Wrangler jeans and flannel type of guy...but I still love him! :)

What do you think of the lace tights look? I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. The weather was gorgeous here and I got a chance to play outside again. Happy Monday to you all!

  6. Where should I begin?
    I'm a bit jealous of you that you have the time to sit in front of the window, read and relax :) Even though - as I know from your tweets - there are crazy times for you too.
    Your outfit looks perfect, you look really good, the boots are chic as well. However, I can image the situation with your father, lol :D
