are you lonely just like me?

No, these are not the thigh high boots that I really wish for, they are my almost-as-cool-knee-high-boots worn over thigh high socks. I am really in love with these socks - they're from Target and they are soooo warm and they look really sexy! Perfect for date nights in the (below zero) Wisconsin winter.

This blouse is a vintage Liz Claiborne (thrifted) and the skirt I got on sale ($5) from my favorite store, H&M. This necklace belonged to my Grandma (she gave it to me for Christmas this year), and it is one of my favorite gifts ever! It has the design of a 1928 British shilling complete with abbreviated Latin phrases and mustached king.

Tonight I'm being taken out on a date by my boyfriend (who is feeling better - thank you to everyone for their well wishes!). We're having dinner out and then renting some Audrey Hepburn movies to watch at his house (I just found out that he is a big Audrey fan). I'm thinking Funny Face and Roman Holiday?

Oh, thigh high socks are the best, I love mine so much too! They're sexy and sassy:)

And your bf is an Audrey fan? Sounds like a real keeper to me!! I love Roman Holiday, have yet to see Funny Face though! I must really watch all of her films one day:P

I love your outfits. This blouse really works with the skirt and boots. I would have thought they were thigh-highs if you hadn't written otherwise. Sigh, a man who loves Audrey Hepburn:)
