Fall into Spring

Sweater, Skirt: JCrew (similar), Boots, Necklace

I am all about spring clothes, but I was a little sad to put these ankle boots in the back of the closet.  That is, until I saw Kate Bosworth in an old Lucky Magazine (while I was on the elliptical at the gym) in this outfit.  Duh! Ankle boots look fantastic with shorts and skirts.  Done and done.

I wore this last weekend for a night out with Noel.  He's officially done with his first year of law school, and he totally rocked it!  So proud of him.  Now he's on to a clerkship for the summer, and maybe a more "normal" schedule.  Maybe?! :)

PS.  I've started a new Netflix series that I'm kinda obsessed with....Dance Academy! I think I love it because it brings back great memories of my dancing days.  Please tell me someone else watches it so we can discuss our feelings.

Ankle boots and shorts!? Seriously - YES. And I'm in. I haven't watched dance academy but I will confess to watching switched at birth. I feel like we're in the same guilty pleasures club either way. Love this outfit.

It's so funny because I have a pair of booties and I was like "how can I make these work past Winter?!" - then BAM! You come up with this post. Just another reason I love you! You're so beautiful, Ashley! And AH I need to start watching this Netflix show! I'm dying over here waiting for SYTYCD to start!!

I was never a dancer, but I love shoes about dancing! I actually saw Dance Academy advertised somewhere but haven't watched it yet. I guess it's good?!

So cute how you paired the ankle boots with a skirt! I feel like my legs look weird in my ankle boots when I don't wear them with pants for some reason!

I love ankle booties with shorts/skirts! I actually did the same thing with struggling with putting them away for the summer - glad I kept them out!

I used to be a dancer and I saw that show on netflix! I haven't started it yet, but now I am totally tempted :)

Emily said...

I told my friend that you said the dancing gets better and I should watch it and she goes, "YOU AREN'T WATCHING IT?!" Dancer fail. I'll tell you what isn't a dancer fail: your beautiful arabesque!!

Loving the ankle boots with this! They kind of make everything pop;) I haven't seen Dance Academy, either, but i love watching that stuff. The dedication and talent is amazing and awe inspiring.

Great outfit. I can't believe it's been a year already. I feel like it was a few months ago you were blogging about your hubby starting law school.

Rachel said...

Love this outfit, and your last pose, too! Awesome! I've seen the "cover" of that show on Netflix but haven't ever watched an episode yet.

I don't watch that show, but as a former dancer myself I think I need to! I'm just waiting until So You Think You Can Dance comes on again so I have something to watch again. :)

And I love ankle boots year round!

The color of the skirt and the the booties pair nicely together. Also, you are so flexible! I don't think my leg has ever gone that high in my life :P
