It’s a busy time of the year so I’ll keep the intro short and sweet. It appears that the theme of the week was boots. In Days 8 thru 14 I said that I had been taking advantage of the dry weather and wearing footwear that wasn’t good for raining weather so for this week most of what was left for me to choose were boots. I’m not complaining, just explaining why all you will see in this post are boots. Tall boots, short boots, boots that zip in back, ruched boots, buckle boots, even boots with corduroy (anyone thinking about hotdogs?).
Ya, I know, that was bad so I won’t drag this out any further.
I’ve had these boots a long time and I think that the corduroy gives them a unique look. I can recall that I first saw these boots in a department store and was delighted when I found them for a lot less at an outlet mall. I’m so glad that the chunky, stacked heel is back in style again.
I bought these boots about four years ago when the back zipper style was first becoming popular. I think that the black zipper gives the boots a more sophisticated look that if it was in a contrasting color. The low heel makes these boots very comfortable and were a great option in my vacation capsule.
These are my current favorite and I’ve felt a bit like a fish out of water without this ‘go to’ option on a weekly basis. I wear them to work, on the weekends, with skirts, with dresses (don’t worry, I’m not starting another parody), dressed up and dressed down, they seem to go with nearly everything.
I’m not sure why but these boots rank low on my ‘like’ list although I am liking them with this outfit. I think I just need more brown in my wardrobe.
I hope you can see the perforations on the outer side of these ankle boots. Like several others that I have, these boots have a bit of a western flair to them which suits this little ol’ country-western music loving gal. I’d like to make note of the outfit; except for the boots, all of the key pieces are thrifted. The cost of the pants (Levi’s), blouse (J.Jill), jacket (Old Navy), and scarf (no label) was less than $15.
I bought these beauties a few years ago to wear to my 50th birthday party which had a country-western theme. Not quite a cowboy boot but close enough and I can wear them without looking like I should be out on the range.
Despite the 3 1/2″ heel, I find that snug fitting booties like the ones above can be more comfortable that other high heeled shoes because the higher vamp distributes my weight better on my feet. At 5’4″, I appreciate the added height I can get from shoes but I want to be comfortable as well and this style gives me both.
That’s a wrap on Days 22 thru 28. There will be one more post on Thursday to finish the series.
