I do like to look at fashion magazines to get ideas on how to use my existing wardrobe or accessories in new ways to make my outfits more on trend. But, I started thinking about all the lovely ladies in the blogs I follow who put together fantastic stylish looks on a real budget. (I started making a list of my favorites and it got too long! Check out my blogroll for their blogs) Needless to say, these ladies inspire me everyday. Putting together a great look on a budget takes a lot more creativity than putting together a magazine look from endless, unlimited items. Just sayin'.
This outfit is from a couple of weeks ago, it is not the greatest, but it is the only one I have available to post right now. I got some new boots from Aerosoles that work over leggings. None of my jeans, even the skinny ones, have legs small enough to go inside boots. If I ever get my sewing machine out and tailor some jeans, these boots will work great with them. There are zippers in the sides that make it easier to get the jeans inside of them. They aren't the Fiorentini + Baker beauties that did not fit my calf's, but they do work and they have an equestrian vibe.
