I am getting INCREDIBLY excited for my trip to Paris, Brussels and London! I recently bought some boots, a new coat, earmuffs and leggings (to slide under my jeans) in preparation for the trip. Here I am testing out my "Paris look." I am getting so excited, that I'm trying on stuff like it's the night before the first day of high school.
This is about a million layers of clothing--weather proof boots, two pairs of socks, leggings, jeans, shirt, sweater, hoodie, scarf, huge coat, beanie, earmuffs and gloves:
And let me tell you! Before I came to Spain, I was proud of my boot find in the States. If you recall, I snagged a pair of Ralph Lauren leather riding boots for $100 when they were originally $300. I am a fashion, but more importantly, a sale FIEND. However, I have outdone myself this time. Those black riding boots you see above are a French brand known as Aigle. They are faux leather, but their company prides themselves in making them look dang authentic. The point is: they're water proof, insulated and have soles with grip. They are amazingly comfortable, in my annoyingly huge size, and fitted. They were MADE for traveling through freezing Europe.
I was willing to throw down like 200 euro on a good pair of boots. I picked up these bad boys for 65 euro. Yes. Sixty-five euro. That's about $86. Yes. I win. Also, I picked up that adorable Zara coat for 60 euro. God, I love the clothes in Europe.
FOUR MORE DAYS!
