Today's Everyday Fashion: Which Boots


Or these?

I think I like the first ones better for night, and the second ones better for a daytime event? What do you guys think? (I'm trying to decide which pair to pack for Austin.)

Also - I wore the second outfit (flat boots) in Paris, and have never experienced so many people pointing and talking about me in my life! My goal for dressing in Paris was not to look like a Parisian, but a stylish American (trying to own my tourist-y self), so I totally get that I might have stood out. But to this day I'm still not sure why my outfit was such a topic of conversation! It was super comfy for a day at the Louvre, and I personally felt very good in it. But if you are European or spent a lot of time there, I would love to hear your theories, because it still puzzles me and I love learning about dress codes in other cultures! :-) Was I breaking an unspoken code?
