The hippie killed the hunter

Oh, the hippie killed the hunter for his warm plaid shirt...

No, that's not the title of a folk song (though it should be!). It' s just what I've nicknamed today's outfit. I was chilly and wanted to be warm and comfortable, so I paired my buffalo plaid flannel with some extra-thick leggings annnd... my newest and favorite addition to my wardrobe: black knee-high slouchy boots!

They fold down to make shorter boots! Wee!

I've been searching for the perfect pair for a crazy amount of time, and snagged these babies (on sale!) at Macy's. And, vegan pals, they are faux-leather, just to clarify. :) The brand is Report if you want to go grab a pair for yourself!

Outfit details:
Plaid tunic (it was a shirt dress till it shrunk!): TJ Maxx
Sweater vest: Kohl's
Belt, leggings: Loft
Boots: Report via Macy's

The resulting look is very grunge-meets-Woodstock, slyph-meets-lumberjack... like a hippie who got lost in the woods and wound up killing a hunter for his shirt. Hee.
You bet, I killed him... then I picked some wildflowers.

Next I want to style these boots with this summer's black floral romper... thoughts?

You look great in that outfit. Love the shirt!

Well, I am a vegetarian, so that's the reason for the veggie recipes!

I'm glad you found such great boots and while sticking to your budget! I think they'd look ridiculously cute with your black romper. Perhaps with black leggings and a white cardigan to pick up the colors in the print? Hmm, I can't wait to see what you think up :)

I've been meaning to wear my yellow romper again before the snow falls. What do you think about pairing it with gray or brown tights? Or even black?
