From the Boots Up

Today’s look was inspired by the boots—a black, suede, slouchy ankle boot with a very low wedge heel. Since I am only 5’4”, I usually avoid flat ankle boots, particularly those with a high shaft because they make my legs look shorter. Well, I was so drawn to these boots that I became determined to make them work.  Today’s outfit is attempt to do so.

I knew I would wear opaque tights and I knew I needed a dress that would fall above my knees. So, I turned to a new fave—a cap sleeved shift by Nine West with a striking print in the front and back.
