These Boots Were Made for Walking

I'll tell you right now that the private school I go to may not have an official "uniform" (okay, there are dress codes, but they've lightened up over the years), but there may as well be one! 
All the girls tend to dress the same. The same colored slacks, skirts, ballet name it! Everyday I see a different variation among them, but really...if you didn't look at their faces, you wouldn't be able to tell them apart.
So this year I'm trying to break the mold.
The problem is being brave enough to do it! I've always been the shy, don't-pay-attention-to-me, bookworm type of girl. 
 I almost lost my resolve to wear this outfit when mom scrutinized me carefully before pronouncing: "Those socks and boots make your legs look big."
She never has been known for her tact.
But hey, before I almost changed, I thought to myself, 'You know what? I like these polka-dotted knee socks, and I like these boots. So I'm gonna wear them!'

My "big" legs ;) Hey, its okay, I know I have muscular calves! Just means I run faster in the sports I play.
I love tribal themes, so this elephant pendent was perfect. Also, like my nails? I was inspired by Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere! Check it out here:

I'm in love with my new knit beanie. :) It makes me so happy!

Good thing I did too, because after wearing these boots to school and getting compliments on my look, I think I'm starting to reach my goal. 

Now, on to the few other random things I captured with my camera today...
Peach pits me and mom are drying out so we'll be ready to plant them next year.

Knock knock, who's there? Isn't my dog just too cute? He was scratching at the door to be let in. I know, bad manners, but it makes for a great picture!
Dare to break the mold! Don't be intimidated into wearing a "uniform".
