Hey roomies! We're Carissa and Isabel from A Dose of Lovely. It is so very nice to meet you all.
We aren't really the type of girls who obey the laws of fashion. For example, a few years ago Isabel wore these old thrifted grandma loafers with everything [really grandma shoes--brand: walkables]. Her sisters [her most brutal fashion critics] teased her like crazy... but she never faltered, she knew better. Now, what are those sisters of hers wearing on their precious little feet these days, you ask? Well of course, shoes that very closely resemble those grandma loafers from so long ago...the irony.
So here is our dilemma...
Cardigan: H&M, Dress: Old Navy, Shoes: Ross, Earrings: Nordstrom's Rack
You may have a boyfriend/husband/fiance/friend that gives you vague answers about fashion that are far from helpful...my husband is not like that. Instead of vague answers, he gives outrageous ones that usually make very little sense. I was talking to him the other day, and telling him about a pair of boots I want to wear with dresses and he responded by saying, "I think boots make girls look like they don't have legs" (What does that even mean??) Well, needless to say, I do not want to be wearing things that make me look like I'm missing two limbs.
Dress: Forever 21, Shoes: Nordstrom Rack
Similar to Isabel, my mom and sister are pretty judgey when it comes to fashion. I rarely wear something they would, so you can imagine how often they make a joke at my outfit's expense. When I wore the combination above they were positive that those booties with that dress looked darn right silly. I, however, thought it was adorable. It's scary to think that I could be so far off base!
So here is our question....
Does it work to wear boots with dresses?
