Cozy

 My favorite (and only) knee high boots. When searching for these all I could find were lace up boots with zippers on the side. Drives me crazy. Both aesthetically and because I walk with my legs so close together the zipper gets caught and I trip all over the place. 

Why have lace up boots if I don't get to lace them? That's half the fun! 

And now that the cooler weather has hit, nothing is warmer than knee high boots, warm socks, soft sweater, and a wool skirt. Ok, tights would probably be warmer, but it's not that cold.

Should mention too-I don't like the side zips either..kind of like "cheating" to me...

I'm the kind of person who looks to be able to take shoes off at moment's notice- thus, side zipper totally necessary. just laces would drive me INSANE. but these are lovely nonetheless [:

I love laces and side zip combos because I hate when my boots are loose fitting, but I'm too lazy to want to adjust my laces every time I take my boots on and off. I think of the zippers like hook and eyes on corsets. They let me get in and out easily and the laces give me a custom fit.

I do catch my zippers on each other, though. That can be really annoying.

Ah, love these! They're so pretty! I adore lace up boots. I've worn laura ingalls type boots (which shouldnt surprise you!) since I was a little girl. I'd love some taller ones such as these though!

Goodness! A pair in every colour please!

I hate side zipper too!!! And sometimes laces are fake too and most of the time they don't fit me... I must have too big legs!!!
I have just bought some 40's small boots with lambs wool inside... still too hot here to wear them!!!

Your socks look so warm :)
I hate zips on boots, I also walk with my legs pretty close together and zips just rip my legs up :(

Very cute, those are great boots! I can see them fitting in with lots of different fun styles.

It's wool season here too, though alas already cold enough you definitely need tights. ;)

I have some knee high lace up boots as well (their Zodiacs from the 70's. I <3 them.) I don't like the zippers because they pull on my stockings!

Gracie said...
