We had gorgeous weather this weekend, and especially today.  I couldn't believe how warm it was.  When I took my outdoor shots on Friday, it was windy and therefore a little chilly, but today was just gorgeous.  I am a sun-lover, so I was thrilled to be outside for these shots. 

My scarf looks sort of orange-y red in these pictures, but really, it's a true, medium red.  I wanted to pair it with grey after seeing Jodi of Day2DayWear in her fabulous grey dress with a red scarf here.  I usually wear my burnt orange scarf with grey (really, with every color), but have been thinking I don't wear enough red.  I love red when I wear it, I just rarely wear it.  So, I'm going to make an effort to wear more red.

Also, I love these boots.  I wanted some tough-looking motorcycle boots, but, the fact of the matter is, I'm just not that tough.  These, however, are so perfectly me.  Again, they have that bit of androgyny (they're a little French soldier, no?) and fun details like the laces and the cap toe.  I know they're an odd color, Born says they're black, but they're really a blackish-brown, but that doesn't bother me as much as I thought it might.  All in all, I find them delightful and very, very comfortable.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
