Janelle In Real Life: facing my fears

facing my fears

Hey friends!
Sometimes my husband doesn't totally understand my fashion choices. When he saw me pull these boots out of the box he was like "Sooooo, when are you even going to wear those?" Ohhhhh Steven. I of course will wear them in the rain AND snow (which we get plenty of) and also I will wear them whenever I want. Like in these photos because it's clearly not raining or snowing... but I did walk on ice with more confidence than normal.

top: gap // cardigan: old navy // scarf: target // leggings: nordstrom // boots: costco

And anyone who's walked with me when it's icy knows that I'm deathly afraid of falling on ice. I've been seriously late to class before because I had to walk on ice. I was that girl that would walk very gingerly and take 5 million seconds for each step, while 8 year olds are passing me with ease. So anything that helps me out with that phobia is great in my book.

In case any of you missed my post about how you can obtain these pretty hunters for $80 (normally $140) take a look at THIS post!

And did you happen to notice those sparkly elbow patches? Because I really, really love them. Elbow patches in general are great, but these are SEQUINED! Nothin' better.

Have a marvelous Monday, you cool cats.

  2. Slipping on ice is no joke!! And my husband asked the same question about my Doc Martens--but I've sure gotten a lot of use out of them!

  11. Oh yes, the elbow patches are amazing! And I truly don't think significant others understand the wonderfulness of the wellies! I have red ones that I am just so obsessed with that I get crap for whenever I wear them - but they're fab, and you're rocking yours!
