It’s funny how when you’re in school you can’t wait for a break, but after just a few days you can’t wait to go back. I’ve been back in Fargo for the last few days and have had absolutely nothing to do. I don’t watch much TV, and I haven’t been able to keep myself occupied with the computer. All my friends are either still home for the holidays or working all the time and here I am all by myself with nothing to do. I’ve been going absolutely nuts.
The other day I went to Kohls to find something cute because I had received a gift card for Christmas. I didn’t find any clothes, but I did find two gorgeous pairs of boots.
The first pair were over-the-knee gray Jennifer Lopez boots with a small platform and lace-up detail.
I’d never tried on over-the-knee boots before, so I had to check them out. I couldn’t find a mirror right away and didn’t know if I liked them. But a lady came up and said my legs looked great in them, so I went and found a mirror and fell in love! I was wearing dark skinny jeans at the time, so I knew they looked good with jeans, but I didn’t know about dresses.
I decided to bring them with me and look at more boots. I found some tall cognac Mudd® boots with a woven trim and tassle accent.
Although they are Mudd, they reminded me of Lauren Conrad. Perhaps because of these cognac fringe boots here & here. Once again I fell in love. I didn’t really have any nice brown boots and thought they’d make a great addition to my wardrobe. I could pair them with jeans and a frilly top or my floral dresses and jean jackets.
I couldn’t decide which ones to get, so I asked a stylish random shopper. She said to get both and try them on with different outfits and return the one I didn’t want later.
So, I spent the rest of my day playing dress-up. I Skyped with my mom and did a little “fashion show” so we could decide which boots to keep. I felt like a little girl again playing Barbies. I would always dress all my Barbies up for different occasions and show my mom.
…anyway, my mom and I decided that I should keep them BOTH. After all, they were on sale!
Which boots would you have chosen and how would you style them? And do you ever play dress-up with all your clothes and shoes, or is it just me?
