Flame & Charcoal & Zebra

December 4, 2014
I’ve been on a hunt for charcoal gray skinny jeans and I finally found them!  I was thrilled … until looking at these photos.  Do they just look like faded black?  Oh well! I still like them!

Loving this orange/red sweater from Old Navy (they call it FLAME).  The skinnies are also Old Navy.  And the boots I’ve had for years and they’re Steve Madden.  I have to admit that they’re not too practical or comfortable, but they’re so fun that I just haven’t been able to part with them.   (They lasted about an hour and then I changed into flats!)

Check out this month’s HOW I WEAR MY to see how all your fav fashionistas are rocking their sweaters this month!

    Sometimes a girl just needs a pair of impractical shoes, no? I love this look. The booties really are the perfect shoe for the flame sweater and skinnies. I am super into black skinny jeans lately. Old Navy makes a good pair.

      Thanks, Amy Ann! And yes, a girl does need (well not NEED) a pair of ridiculous shoes for sure!

    Charcoal grey?? Faded black?? Who cares what you call the colour…these skinnies are a hit, dearest Dawn!! So perfect with your newest "flame" (sweater, that is!) and those jaw-dropping Steve Madden booties!! XOXO

    Why is it that cute shoes are uncomfortable? Such a bummer – they are adorable and so great with this outfit!


    • Reply dawnlucy December 8, 2014 at 12:31 pm

      I know! The day they make hot shoes comfortable will be happy day indeed! 😉
