Downton Abbey


It was so darn cold outside yesterday that I wanted to wear these blue boots with this outfit, but couldn't decide if it looked dorky or not, since the boots stopped right where my pants started. And when I'm in doubt about possible outfit dorkiness, I tend to play it safe with something like black wedges. In the end, though, this look felt a little boring, so I almost wish I had risked the potential dorkiness and worn the boots.

In other news, Josh and I have been watching Downton Abbey in the evenings, which is incredible and surprisingly funny at times. It's on Hulu if you want to watch it. My favorite line so far was when the Dowager Countess said in all seriousness, "What's a weekend?"

  1. Haha! I think a lot of us wonder what a weekend is some weeks...That made me laugh. :D
    I don't think you could ever style those pants to be boring-they're so fabulous! Perfect length on you too.

    1. Thanks, Katie! They do add a bit of pizzazz to an outfit, don't they?

    1. These pants were a steal! I couldn't believe they were only $15. Of course, I still need to take in the waist a little bit because the sizing is weird on those pants, but I still consider it a good deal.

  3. This weather has been messing with my outfit planning too. It's not cold-cold but it's not warm enough to wear summer clothes either.

    I love those pants and love how you've styled them. I think they look great with the black wedges (which are fabulous).

    1. It's a very confusing time in Oregon right now, weather-wise. Whenever I leave the house I never know if it's going to drastically warm up or cool down while I'm gone.

  4. Sorry it got so cold again! At least you are still keeping the spring feelings with those pants.

    1. I've noticed I've been wearing a lot of florals lately, even on cold days - I think it's my way of protesting the inappropriately cold weather!

  5. Cute outfit! It has been pretty chilly lately.
    Downton Abbey is my favorite! Can't wait till the season 3...even though that's quite a ways off. :)

    1. I've only seen season one - I can't find season two online anywhere! And I'm so afraid someone is going to give me a spoiler before I do watch it.
