American Eagle: Knit Vest, Waffle Crew, and Equestrian Boots

I am getting ready for Seattle! I usually go to Seattle during baseball season, but we will be up there for a bit during my winter break. This means I need clothes for a real winter, so you may remember I turned to American Eagle. Out of all my online purchases from ae, I am only keeping the vest, waffle crew, and the puffer coat. I bought it in navy, but I am considering the olive or lavender. Although, my husband and sister-in-law say they like the navy. Any thoughts?

The Boots

Way too big. I am either 7 or 7.5 in shoes, so I ordered a 7.5...bad choice! My feet were slipping around in them...even with socks! Also, they are too large for my calves. I could fit my arm and leg in the shoe! I am not too heartbroken, because I found a new pair that fit my calves nicely. They are by Frye, and I tried them on in a 7 at Saks today. It is the Carson in smoke smooth. I did not make the purchase, but I smell a Christmas present!! :) Scroll down for the pic and go here for the boots featured on the Nordstrom website.

  4. All your purchases are great for Seattle. I think both boots are cute, but kind of prefer the AE ones more. Do they not make it in size 6.5?
