Quick post with what I wore today! All I wanted to do was wear my new blue boots today.
Unfortunately dirty laundry > me, so my original “vision” (and 2nd/3rd ideas) will have to make a sartorial debut another time. Not the outfit I envisioned but it didn’t turn out too bad.
After work I had to run around like a crazy person to get some errands done. I have company coming next Thursday and the house is far, far from ready. Did I mention that I work or have big time commitments from now until then? And it is finals week? This is gonna be fun.

Are you guys proud of me? I didn’t wear a belt. A rare occasion, indeed!
I was a little skeptical about these boots, because my experience with footwear from “the catalogs” hasn’t been that great. They do come in wide calf and larger shoe sizes (good), in cute styles (fantastic) but I’ve found the quality (sub par) and staying power to be lacking for the price (sucks). I also found out the hard way that they have a tendency to lie on the product descriptions, like claiming a man-made upper (it was more like super cheap felt) is suede!
I think not.
But these boots are definitely a winner. They do run a big, I think I could get away with a size smaller but it is nothing a pair of socks can’t fix.
Happy Friday! I hope you enjoy the weekend. I’ll be attending a baby shower for my cousin tomorrow and cleaning or working otherwise, so have some fun for me!
How do you feel about colored footwear? What are your plans for the weekend?
