At the beginning of the fall season I wasn’t sure I wanted to embrace the new “it” fashions. Sometimes, or most of the time, I don’t want to completely fall in lockstep with everyone else. The boot craze, however, got me. It’s funny, in a sad kind of way, but if you go to a mall, or Target, or anywhere out in public 90% of the women will have tall boots on. But, funny enough, I have yet to see a pair that I don’t like…except those Ugg styles…those look like pajama boots and only tween to early teen girls should wear them and only then with pajama looking clothes, because only that very limited age range can get away with that look. (Sorry, if you’re a fan, I’m sure you look fab in them!)
I’m pretty sure I professed my love for my boots here, on Facebook and Twitter. I’ll refresh your memory:
This was my daily choice of chaussure for November and December. Until the snows fell. And continued to fall. And everything got wet. And stayed wet. That’s not good for suede. So, I transitioned to my other favorite boot of the season
My wellies! Not only are these beauties waterproof, they’re easy to slip on and they’re comfortable. They’re like pajama boots, only useful in the sloshy climate that has gripped DC for the past two and a half months.
I’m not exaggerating when I estimate that my cost per wear right now for my boots are about $1 for the suede ones and .33 for the wellies. Some of the best bargains I’ve ever purchased, along with those $3 jeans I got from Loft that are probably .03 per wear now.
Yes, it has been the Winter of the Boot. And I imagine it will be the Spring of the Boot as well. Those wellies will look smashing with my orange trench!
