My Friend's Boots

I am so comfortable today! I’m wearing one of my new cardigan’s from Old Navy that I got on clearance for less than $2! In my favourite tights & shorts & my boots. I have to tell you about my boots. I met a dear friend of mine, Michaela, almost 15 years ago in England. We were roommates for quite a while. Her style was very different from mine, but I really liked it. She wore a lot of white & neutrals – she always looked so natural. She had this pair of ankle boots that I loved – they were stylish & comfortable. They were also brown – I didn’t wear brown shoes – probably had something to do with the fact that brown shoes were required as part of my high school uniform. Anyway, I loved her shoes. A couple of years after I met Michaela, my Mom was going to buy me a pair of shoes for my birthday. We headed to Oxford Street in London & had a Mom & daughter shopping day. I can’t remember the store, but we found a very similar pair of boots to Michaela’s except in black! So these shoes have travelled the world with me & still fit despite my feet getting bigger with pregnancy. (I have no idea why some shoes I can still wear & some I can’t) Love my boots!

Challenge #6 Outfit #24

We spent a leisurely morning at the resort. We wandered around the gardens & had lots of fun taking pictures – I’ll probably do a post with some of the photos.

I wore shorts & tights again which is honestly one of my favourite looks. I love my shirt except for the fact that it’s just too big & isn’t doing me any favours. I hate it when that happens!

I love my purple boots too. That is all.

Challenge #6 Outfit #19

A playdate at a local bouncy castle place was on the agenda for yesterday so I knew I had to be casual & comfortable.

A simple outfit that I thought worked well. I wore a shawl/cape thing instead of a coat. At the bouncy castle place I kept it on quite a bit because I was really cold. That’s when a little girl came up to me & said I looked like a witch. Nice! Ah well, hopefully I was a good-looking, stylish witch.

It’s an ode to Ross day!

I’d like to take a moment to talk about boots. A couple of years ago, I set out on a hunt for a pair of black boots that would be my “go to” boots. They needed to be stylish & comfortable. I spent more than I should on several different pairs of boots – mostly ordered online. Some of them I still have & enjoy wearing, but none of them were exactly what I wanted. Then I found this pair of boots in Ross for less than $25 & they were nearly perfect. I told myself that if I ever found them again, I’d buy another pair & more than a year later, in a different State at a different Ross, I found them again & bought them. I love them that much! They aren’t perfect, but they’re close.

I’ve become much more focused in what I buy lately. I used to buy pretty much anything if it was on sale, but now I am thinking about basics that I want to find & I am intentional in looking for them. I’ll still look for the best deal, but wearablity is so much more important than having lots of things in my closet that I can’t or don’t want to wear.
