I've been desiring tall boots for YEARS. 3 Falls in a row I've ordered and returned about 10 pairs of boots from Zappos, with no luck.
This year, I tried on a pair of boots at the Clarks outlet, and even though they weren't wide calf, I could zip them. I didn't buy that pair, but it energized my search this year. Well, the 9th pair was a charm, and I love them! I was wearing them around the house yesterday over my running tights, and that made me want to wear them with skinny jeans. 3 stores and about 15 pairs later, I have fabulous dark skinny jeans to tuck into my gorgeous new boots! Yay!!!!
This NSV came at just the right time - the scale has been a b***h to me lately, and I've gotten frustrated. I needed this.
I'm going on vacation in Ireland with a group of people who haven't see me since I started losing weight, and I can't wait to shock the s**t out of them in my new boots and skinnies!
