Ah, spring transitional weather, it's warm and lovely in direct sunlight and despairingly cold in the shade.
For the longest time I had been looking out for a pair of military-inspired boots that were less combat and more casual. These are great because they're fitted at the ankle for shape. Most of the time the pairs I would find like these would be wayyyyy out of my price range. Call it serendipity when I snatched these up at one of my local favorite establishments: No Relation Vintage, which I STRONGLY encourage fellow New Yorkers to hit up if they can. The place can sometimes be hit-or-miss, but I always find duds from the 70's that are in great shape and it's a must if you're on the lookout for a chunky knit or three.
I just took the grunge of the boots and played around with wearing them out with more flowy, not-so-structured pieces that move quite nicely with the elements, and by the elements I mean the wind and me bobbing around like a happy toddler in the sun. The adderbite ring is a piece I should break out more often, I don't really wear it on days I have classes because I can't write or type with it on, but come events, it's on my hand.
