birds of a feather

patterned dress with simple accessories
DSC02317This dress is one of my favorites in my closet for many reasons - it has little feather polka dots on it, it has long sleeves, it's super flattering, and it was once upon a time a "first date" dress. I don't think I've worn it once on the blog because I always wear it the same - with a belt and similar shoes. Maybe one of these days I'll get adventorous and wear a blazer over it or something (hold me back, it's getting crazy up in here), but for now I'm not going to mess with a good thing. 

Until it's -20 here. Then all bets are off, and all scarves are on.

And speaking of cold weather (NOT YET, PENNSYLVANIA), I'm still debating which booties I'd like to try. I want something that is a bit more appropriate for school, and something I can wear with black tights (stockings?) with skirts/dresses this fall and winter. I mentioned I was looking at these Vince Camuto booties (the reviews are all raving about them!), but noticed this very similar pair from Geox that has a bit of a thicker heel. I don't really have a commute so I'm not too worried about walking in a bit of snow, but I also don't want to wobble the 30 feet of walking from my parked car into school. Any suggestions/input? Like I said, totally bootie newbie here ;)
