These boots are made for walking…

… in snow.  Ah, springtime in the Rockies!

Today, we will be discussing the weather.  And, of course, ME!

Last week I made the executive decision that spring was here, and I would no longer be wearing tights and closed toe shoes with my dresses.  I would also be painting my toenails.  (I left my toenails unpainted all winter for probably the first time in at least 10 years… they seemed to need the break from being so high-maintenance.)  That executive decision worked out GREAT last week – it was so nice!

Today?  Snow, tights, and boots.  Fortunately, I am a big fan of my boots.  For a couple of years, I’d been looking for some nice tall boots to wear with skirts, but with a flat heel (stoopid arthritis).  I couldn’t find anything that I liked enough to justify spending the money on, so no boots for me.  I made myself feel better about not finding any by convincing myself I’d look all stumpy in them anyway.  Then when I was in Amsterdam in November, everywhere I looked, women were wearing these great tall boots!  And even the short round girls looked awesome in them!  (That sounds much cattier than I mean for it to sound… it was just astonishing how many awesome looking boots were strolling by while I was walking around in clunky loafers…)  So, I went back on the hunt for boots!  I still didn’t want to pay a ton of money for them though, cause I didn’t really think I’d get that much use out of them.  I found a pretty plain black pair, and a pair of brown riding boots, both at Chadwicks for some crazy low clearance price, and bought them!   I’m wearing the brown ones today.  I feel like such an equestrian.  (Except for the part where I don’t have a horse.)  A couple months after that, I found some super awesome (and super cheap, again!) biker looking boots at Target.  And ALL of them look awesome with skirts (I think…)!  I’ve been wearing boots all winter, and I’m thinking now that I might actually invest in a more quality pair next winter, now that I know I’ll get lots of use out of them.  We’ll see how my bank account is feeling about boots at that point.
