Stripes and knits and tights... Oh my! I love my new winter boots. They pull on, zip, buckle, and conform to your instep (I guess it must mean I'm getting old if that's something I look for in footwear.) I absolutely adore them. This is actually one of those cases where I get dressed in the morning with the intent of building an outfit around my shoes. Black tights or cigarette pants are ideal for a high-shaft like this, elongating the leg and drawing away from any opportunity for stub-leg-syndrome (you know what I mean, when your look gives you long killer lower legs but then cuts you off at the knees — literally — giving the impression of shorter, stubby hot-dog-like thighs.) Bleh. Years of sports have blessed me with strong muscles, but I need to watch for this mishap when dressing my legs. Weighty knit shorts deter from any addition of bulk-age, and although I could have kept the long and lean line going with something more vertical on top, I opted for horizontal stripes in a tonal play that works well with the shorts. My long hourglass necklace works in to continue the vertical line, and I added a shorter necklace for balance and to bring the focus of attention up to my face and away from the midline.
My friends and I have developed a ritual for stuffing our bellies only at certain restaurants in one another's neighborhoods when we make visits. Here I am sipping my miso soup at one such sushi place. It should be noted that reggae music was playing at 5 o'clock in the evening, while we dined on spicy tuna rolls and chicken katsu.
