Boots? Canadian Tire
This is what I wore for New Years when we were still up north. I figured I would start the new year with people I love, in a skirt I love. To be honest, the skirt never quite made it to midnight because after these pictures were taken, I was on dinner duty and with sweet potato poutine on the menu, I didn't want to have a gravy accident.
Post dinner I dutifully put on my party skirt again, only to change into my snow pants to go tobogganing. And after that exertion, I was done/stick a fork in me, so the fact that I (barely) stayed awake to midnight was the accomplishment. I'm not even upset about this skirt getting trumped by snow pants either... I've worn this skirt more than I ever would have thought when I bought it; first to my brother's wedding, then to a holiday party and now that I've worn it in the Canadian wilderness (ok, the Canadian wilderness gets far more wilderness-y than what we experienced...), the next logical step is wearing it to get my oil changed. Nah... scratch that, I actually just got that done. The next logical step is clearly wearing it to the dentist, I'm overdue for a visit, I think I have a cavity and I'm a little scared... Sequins may just take the edge off.
