What I wore...

So, here is my first "What I wore..." You can love it, you can hate it, but I love feedback...
So for my first "what I wore" I need to tell you that I bought these ankle boots about two months ago after seeing them on the cute girl that worked in the Brass Plum section of Nordstrom. I asked her where she got them and she said, "right downstairs in the shoe department." I made a bee-line downstairs to snag these adorable boots....
So I loved them when I bought them, and I still love them, but I just wasn't sure how to wear them. I seriously sat on the internet one night for about an hour googling "how to wear ankle boots"....I know, you're laughing right now, but I am totally serious! The boots intimidated me and I'm sure in the hell not famous, but I had this image in my head of showing up on a magazine as the worst dressed (like what was she thinking when she got dressed today), I could see young girls staring at me and shaking their heads...
And of course my husband looks at me like what are you wearing, because he isn't always up to date on fashion (but that's okay, I still love him to death).
Well, last night (after talking to my kids babysitter last week who is 17 and is in high school) making sure that I wasn't going to make a fashion faux pas, I "rocked" the boots (no not knocked the boots...your dirty little minds). I just held my head high and I wore my little ankle boots. Of course I went out to dinner with two of my long time friends and not one of them said anything the whole night (so in my mind I'm thinking, oh my gosh, they must wonder what I'm wearing)....until right before we are about to leave my friends house at the end of the night, her husband (who is very fashionable himself) says, "I love your boots, the whole outfit looks great." My friends agreed and said "yeah, I would have never thought to wear them with a dress, it is so cute though." I felt redeemed, like oh, I did it, I really am still somewhat hip after two kids. So you can love it or hate it, but I'm just glad I finally had the guts to rock my boots!!! And....I totally owe my babysitter for being my personal fashionista right now...You rock Lizzie!
