Great booties. The bright clear colour offers some exciting outfit possibilities, and is a nice contrast to the muted colours you see at this time of year. Would love to see these paired with blue jeans!

This is such a good outfit, WOW!!! The red booties are so fantastic, Suz, the will make a statement with everything you pair them with. LOVE!

Great outfit! Love the culottes, booties, the whole thing. I bet you'll find lots to wear with the red.

Great outfit. I also love red shoes but haven't owned a pair for years.

Great boots suz - love the red on you! I used to have some really bright red shoes that got a lot of compliments.

Awesome! Love everything about this.

and just a little sad the boots are gone....

Are they gone, Elizabeth? Keep eyes peeled or order from Nordstrom's. I do suspect the Bay will get more pairs returned....


Yup, completely...
Liked the idea of "sale" since they wouldn't be a workhorse for me, more for fun. But I will keep an eye out!

Fantastic! I cannot resist red shoes and boots, and these are beauties. Love the whole outfit.

Yep, that works. You got the length right on the culottes. And you need to wear those red boots with the pink blazer.

That's a perfect look for a teaching day.

ETA: Random thought: I've been teaching today myself and I noticed lately that I have a specific look which I reserve for that assignment. You probably wouldn't notice the difference from many of my other WIW's, but in my mind I'm always trying to create an impression of creative, approachable authority. It's basically all the same stuff, but I try to put it together in a more sober and ladylike way,

Liz, that's exactly the words I'd use, too. Creative, approachable authority. So a button front shirt and/or jacket are great. And some statement item or something with an interesting cut. And something fun. This worked out perfectly. Another outfit I like for warmer temps involves my sarong shorts.

And I am SO wearing the red boots and pink coat together soon. Just need the right backup act.

Red is ideal! Breathtaking shoes! I cherish your outfit. I have a couple of culottes now so I am observing precisely. I see you have combined yours with a short coat. Yes, must analysis.

You look wonderful. Great booties and culottes!

Fantastic silhouette with the culottes. Every woman should have a colored boot that makes their heart sing. These are very special indeed. I bought burgundy booties last year that bring me such joy.

A terrific ensemble. I love red shoes, too.

Oooh! Love those booties! Actually, the whole look is stellar, and makes me very happy. I'm loving the volume on your slight frame --- it makes you seem just a bit bolder and freer, if that makes sense. And this is a great look for teaching: interesting, but grounded and "approachable."

Love those booties. The outfit is wonderful!

I always feel that red shoes are the answer... lol!

Fantastic outfit, Suz. The culottes are just the right length and look so good with the booties and short jean jacket.

Oh, dear, I saw this among the thumbnails and just had to look. You look FABULOUS!

Red boots to the win! They are awesome, Suz and go so well with these culottes. You are our culotte model now and it is hard to imagine you just started to wear them recently - you wear them to perfection!

KILLER all 3-the red booties(such a happy color, Plonk!!!!:-)), culotte(hemmed to a perfect length) and Yourself in that outfit, soooo stylish!!!
