Remember when you were little, how much you wanted your shoes to make noise, just like your mom’s? I always did anyway. But now, as an adult, I don’t own many pairs of shoes that you can hear coming – until now. I mentioned these Madewell boots in yesterday’s post – that I wasn’t sure I’d keep them, but yeah, I’m keeping them. They make me feel all grown up. Not just because they make noise, but because they’re a nice, “fancier” alternative to my clogs and sneakers I’ve had in heavy rotation lately. I think they bring my outfit up a notch or two.
I’m not sure these boots are “me” exactly, but what fun is fashion if we can’t pretend every once in a while? They’re a slightly sassy version of me – a more “Dallas” version of me – a more “polished” version of me. But still kind of me. And they’re ridiculously comfortable. I’m going to make them work, although I haven’t found much I really like to wear them with besides leggings and my James Perse crepe surplus pants. I wanted them to work with knee-length dresses & skirts, but I’m not feeling that right now. Any other suggestions?
*speaking of My Habit, I see that R&R Surplus is on there today – THERMALS!!!
