Let’s be honest. Some of you might feel like I’ve just curated a large pile of black boots-ish looking shoes. Others might seriously appreciate the slight differences in all of these booties. I have a serious problem (not sure if I’ve shared this bit yet) that really makes cold-weather dressing quite irritating. I’m bow-legged. I never really understood what that meant until I was a cheerleader and my coach kept telling me to “squeeze my legs together” as I was being thrown in the air. I would always think to my self, annoyed, “I am, you moron. My legs just don’t touch! Gosh.”
As I got older and really embraced boots, it was apparent that I would forever deal with an issue that some people might not consider an issue at all (some even envy my issue–they are crazy though!). I can’t wear tall boots. Due to my legs not touching, my legs force them to become an awkward bowed shape that is just not cute. Luckily booties were re-introduced into fashion and has been my saving grace. Now I can finally wear “boots,” as opposed to sandals in the winter, without my strange legs forcing the boots apart. So, with that said, now you might understand why I have such a crazed bootie obsession, and why I make giant visual lists of pairs I just need!
Does turning 27 signify anything special (aside from almost being 30)? For me, it is the age I will be getting married. The age I am officially “late 20’s.” It’s sort of scary for me to think that my glorious 20’s are almost finished. However, I have secretly always been excited to turn “30, flirty, & thriving!” If you can name what that reference is from you’re my soul mate. Since I’m not particularly excited about my birthday this year I have resorted to compiling things that DO excite me, starting with my split personality about shoes. Yes, you are seeing correctly. I’m a girly girl who neeeeds the Stuart Weitzman Nudist sandals; the sometimes grunge who needs the Anine Bing flat booties (have actually wanted these for quite a while…ahem, Paul!); and the girl who can’t decide her gender and wants Vans (???) in snakeskin. Hey, I saw some cute girl on Pinterest wearing them with her vegan leather pants and they looked pretty chic, actually. Stop judging me.
