It's been so bright and warm lately, which I think most people around here love, but it leaves me completely uninspired.
"Aren't you loving this weather?"
"No not really."
The mornings are cold and gray, so those allow for some more autumn appropriate outfits, which I've been revolving around my new boots!
I found out a few months ago that Animal Traffic in Portland offers custom made Whites Boots, and since I've been searching for brown, knee high, lace up boots forever, I was so excited when they said that style would be possible.
(But seriously shoe companies, it really shouldn't be that difficult to make a nice pair of leather, knee high, lace up boots, that don't have a stupid zipper on the side because that's just ridiculous, they lace up, and besides, the zipper catches on my socks and snags them, so it's not only a pointless feature, it's actually really, really annoying functionally and aesthetically.)
They don't do the ladies style in a knee high, so they worked with me and figured out I needed to order the lace-up cowboy packer in a women's size, 16" height, red dog leather, with pointed toe and oil proof western sole. They are beyond amazing, as soon as I put them on I felt the difference. It's like they're made for me. Oh wait, they are...
They're the kind of boots I'll be wearing in for quite a while, but eventually the leather will soften. I'm sure we'll share many adventures.
