Gray & Cognac Quack.
I'd been wanting a pair ever since J.Crew sold out of the super cute shearling lined, gray & brown ones a few years back.
Rarely do I feel like I missed out on buying something (clothes/shoes), but dangit!...I missed out on those beauties!
Low & behold...their distant cousin, Bass, called out to me from the clearance aisle of DSW. Super comfortable & in my size! For 47 bucks, I couldn't just leave them there. They have a thin flannel lining...not as warm as my Sorels, but way, way lighter on my feet. I can easily put on a wooly pair of socks/leg warmers for added warmth. I absolutely LOVE these boots!
When it started to snow, I pulled them on & tried winterizing another summer dress...
Score for about 2 bucks!
To be so thin, the jersey fabric surprisingly has this weight to it.
The dress comes to my knees naturally, so I belted it & pulled out a little of the material. It draped over my belt easily.
Since it's a sleeveless summer dress, I put a warm turtleneck underneath, and on top of that, I added a 3/4 sleeve tie-neck blouse...which is also like this thin cotton, jersey-like fabric.
Threw on a pair of sweater tights & my new duck boots, and I was all set to run some errands.
