boots and cats

Layering plaid has been my winter go-to when it comes to print on print action. Its something, to me, that is so over complicated that it's almost simple. Does that make sense? I hope not.

I actually was inspired by a Gap ad when had to replicate the look. Good thing I had the pieces handy thanks to sample sales in New Jersey. To give this look a feminine spin, I added a good costume piece. What's better than a statement necklace? I'll answer that for you - not much.

I finally gave in and rewarded myself with a much needed new lens. It was something I should have done a long time ago, for myself and my blog, but better late than never! In case you want to know, I use a Canon Rebel XS (pretty much your entry level DLSR) and instead of the stock lens, I now use a 55mm 1.8 lens. It makes a world of a difference and is so cheap for a lens! I definitely recommend it if you're looking to take a step past your stock lens.

Now, the best part of this look may come as a surprise to you: the boots! 

Have you heard of Caterpillar? I'm talking the brand that you usually see at a truck stop or on a tractor. Yes, those guys. They actually have a KILLER shoe line that I can't get enough of. A few months ago I was invited to take a look at their SS '13 line and could seriously see myself in every pair. I chose something different for a boot - a navy blue! The boots are incredibly high quality and are constructed with beautiful genuine leather.

The leaves in the font used in the header look like marijuana plants. Was that intentional? Just seems like a bit of an odd design to use. To each their own, I guess.

Hello! No, the font in my header was not to intentionally look like marijuana plants, but thank you for pointing that out! I'm actually pretty oblivious to that kind of stuff, and should probably go back and look at the font name and change my header :)
