Tasty Clothes

Okay, the clothes themselves are inedible - but I DID wear them to an incredibly tasty dinner last night.  My mom (happy birthday/happy retirement!!!) and I went out to celebrate, and picked the uber-delicious, inexpensive Victory 44 as our hang-out.  If you live in the Twin Cities area, or plan to visit our snowbound state, please put Victory at the top of your must-eat-at list.  Yes, it is THAT good.

My outfit, on the other hand, was only so-so:

I tried to plan an outfit without boots, I REALLY TRIED.  But it was snowing and cold, and these boots are so warm and toasty on my tootsies.

So until it stops snowing, my outfits are simply going to be boot-centric.  At least I have these EPIC boots to wear out.  Faux-Fryes for the win!

This outfit also makes me want to sing... feel free to sing along,  "I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay!"

I do like buttered scones for tea.  But I don't hang around in bars, regardless of what you've heard.

The 411.  Warning: it's an all Target, all day, outfit:
Teal-ish blue T, Jimmyz by way of my buddy, Ashley
Plaid flannel ruffled tunic, Target
Olive skinny cargo pants, Target
Black OTK socks, Target
Black leather harness boots, Target (gift from my Sis)
E typewriter key necklace, gift from Laura
Drama queen necklace, also a gift from Laura

The necklace Laura got me for Christmas 2009 is hy-freaking-sterical.  It also shows that my friends have no problems teasing me:

It says, "She needed an audience to feel complete."  And no, my boobs aren't really that big.  Those babies are the result of a good bra and well-placed ruffles.

My main dissatisfaction with the outfit was how my pants kept coming untucked.  I finally did the 80's trick of pulling my socks over the pants to keep them tidy.  But I found that to be uncomfortable and resulted in some weird-looking bagging around the top of the boots.  I think I need to make some removable stirrups to hold my looser pants in place.

What do you guys do to make your pants stay tucked in?


  1. LOVE the necklace!

  2. Love the necklaces! Those are some pretty spot on Faux-fryes.

    The most successful, aside from tucking into socks, has been to fold the pants - be it cuffing and/or folding vertically. I usually just accept the baggy knees.

    Congrats to your Mom!

  3. I love that you quoted "The Lumberjack Song." Nicely done.

    I also tuck my pants into socks - if I think they're going to show, I wear a pair of cool socks. Love those boots, by the way!
