There isn’t a new Outift Post Today

… because I’ve been running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off in 5″ stilettos. All at once everything is moving at 100mph and it’s been all I can do to hold on.

I promise there will be new, juicy content up tomorrow and the day after but today I need a mulligan… and your advice:

Should I buy these?I was just sent a reminder that they were gathering digital dust sitting in my shopping cart and it got me thinking…

Pros: They’re under $35 (including shipping), relatively practical (aka good for at least 2 seasons) and I think they would be prefect with leggings, a big cozy knit and felt fedora (my fall weekend uniform) or paired with these skinnies, classic flannel and a knit beanie.

Cons: Some reviewers called them more of an olive than a brown, this concerns me. For under $35 I’m concerned that the quality will leave much to be desired, especially when they’re put up against Vermont weather conditions. I’m also worried that their slouchy appearance will restrict them to weekend only wear.

What do you think? Is there a way to class these boots up so they’re good for more than weekend errands? Should I pick them up?

  1. Some call it olive, I call it army green and military chic, go for it girl!

  2. I say yes, you should buy those. I love them!

  3. Buy them NOW! I think they’d be cute with a brown or green dress! Totally dress-up-able. I’d say.

  4. I think it depends on your work environment. I would not be able to, but that’s just my stuffy, boring loafers office environment. I’d say based on your personal style that you’d love these and would wear them often. I also don’t think $35 is too bad for weekend-only shoes, considering how much you’ll get out of them. Boots + harsh winter = your money’s worth for these. And are those built-in socks? Love!

  5. My rule of thumb for myself is that if I’m even questioning whether or not to get something then it’s an automatic “no”. I try really hard to keep or buy only things that I LOVE….not easy sometimes! Cute boots though! Hugs! ~Serene

  6. looks cute. If your work place is casual, yes get it! So you can wear it to death and make your money’s worth! I think it will look nice with short skirt or a floral dress too.

  7. Buy them! Olive is as neutral as brown and way more fun.

    I believe you should, The fatlace ties are intriuging and it they could very well be a nice contrast to something more “uptown” such as a Gucci bag, etc.
