Thank you for all your comments yesterday! I wasn't sure how you'd respond because the sentimental Elaine doesn't come out often on this blog. Virtual hugs for all!

It's been cloudy in L.A. lately. I had to take advantage of the cool air and wore a sweater and boots for the first time in months! Huzzah! But we're in L.A. and Lindsay Lohan made me wear leggings.

One of my biggest splurges were these boots - almost $200. I told you I'm wild. I did get $30 cash back so it's okay, guys. I walked 4 miles in these boots today (because parking in L.A. sucks) and it was like walking on clouds. It was also the worst walk ever. I got 10 cat calls and all the guys were ugly.

  1. I hate those kind of people.

    I am glad you can make it through a 3 mile trek in those boots!

  2. Bummer about the rude harassment. Some people are just so rude.
    Annoyingness aside, this is a fabulous look. Much cooler than Lindsey Lohan. In fact, I have similar boots and I attempt to recreate this, with some of my husband's clothing (I'm sure he'll love me taking his limited clothing away from him).

  3. hahah well... sorry about that walk... =) I love the outfit though! I think its cute! I like that you wore something a little long with the leggings.. and loose. but not too loose, its cute.

  5. i wish i could actually get away with stealing my hubby's clothes! sadly he is 13inches taller and 115 lbs heavier (and people wonder why i wear 4 inch heels every day!)... i have tried quite a few times and he laughs hysterically
    HOWEVER, i love getting his old tee's and cutting them up for super cool re-fashions! (tons of free fabric!)
    you look freaking cute in everything!

  6. ughh those are so annoying! Just guys being obnoxious.

    I really like it! Cute and simple!

  7. That's awful about the walk, but at least you had a cute outfit to make it a little better! I love what you did with this plain white t-shirt. Somehow the white in the middle of all the dark colors really makes a big impact. It's casual but really fashionable. You put together great outfits and I'm always excited to see your new posts!

  12. I actually did "LOL" at your mention of Lindsay Lohan making you wear leggings. Awesome boots, too-- I heard Tsubo makes a good boot.

  16. Hadn't had a chance to comment on yesterday's post yet, but I love that you share your style, kindness, and humor with us through your blog.

    This looks like such a comfy look. You pull this off very well. Too bad I don't think it's a look everyone (esp me) could pull off without looking a bit bulky. I wish I could see your boots better in these pics tho, since I know you rarely splurge I'm very curious about them. :)

  17. Cute boots! Whoa that's an expensive pair of boots, but at least it's an investment piece :)

  18. Good shoes are always an acceptable splurge. I like your boots.

  26. I've been eying Tsubo boots. Are they really that comfy? They look great on you, so maybe I should make a splurge, too?

  27. I would wear this outfit everyday if it wasn't for the no leggings rule on campus. poo.

  32. It isn't la without weirdos hollering at you! Haha I hate when that happens and you're just like "ugh, stop."

    Very comfy outfit! An outfit like this is a uniform for me during this wet rainy cold weather. Its times like these that I get so lazy and just pull on leggings top and boots!

    ReplyDelete
  33. you are hilarious!!

    ur quick wit always catches me by surprise hahaha

    i can see why you got catcalled, i love that outfit! sorry the guys were all ugly : / when i was in LA i only saw hotties! lol

  35. leggings as pants? No wonder you got all those cat calls, lainey! not too hot for such wondrous boots?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Cat calls = woof. Why do guys even do that? I don't think any relationship ever started with a cat call. But this outfit is so chill and cute. Perfect for classes this week...thanks for the inspiration! Great splurge on the boots!

  37. This looks great! I love the mens Hanes tees.

  38. Girl you look so cute and comfy!!! I love it! You're to cute when you smile! :)

    Love life girl!

    ReplyDelete
  39. sometimes on really ugly, frizzy days, or when i am running a million miles, those cat calls are exactly what i need. nice to know i've always got options. (not really.)

  40. i love this look...i love boots with leggings

  42. New comfy boots, what more can a girl ask for?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love Tsubo! I can't believe you walked 4 miles in them - a testament to how comfy those shoes are. I think Tsubo means "pressure points" and the shoes are made to put cushion on the pressure points of your feet to make them extra comfortable.

  44. hahaha. lindsay lohan made me do it. love!!

  45. gorgeous outfit Elaine, the leggings are sexy...even though you are totally wrapped in that oversized sweater but you look incredibly hot with those leggings and boots...stunning!!!

  48. You look so cute in this (although I do wish guys would be less vocal about sharing their thoughts - or do it in a more articulate way).

    ReplyDelete
  49. You are so cute! Those boots are awesome. And that is a perfectly reasonable price to pay for good boots! I totally believe in paying for quality footwear. Feet are important! And yours look awful cute in those boots!

  50. Awesome boots! You really pulled them off!
