Boots - It's a Love/Hate Relationship

I love boots. So so happy they are in this fall. On the OUTSIDE of your jeans, so you can love them in all their leather glory. But finding the right ones? It's safe to say that the perfect casual brown boot has become my nemeses.

I bought a version of these about 5 years ago, justifiying the cost by saying that it was a staple, a classic look, THESE will be a lifetime in my closet.

So I ordered them. AND THEY KILL MY FEET. I now only wear them when I don't have to walk more than 50 yards in an evening. Which is pretty much never.

So this year, I wanted a more casual brown boot to wear over my jeans. When I saw THESE online,

I loved them, but didn't want to pay even that much, unless I had to. So I looked around - ALOT. Couldn't find anything. Finally resigned myself to the idea of spending more on brown boots and went to buy them. Walked in, saw them sitting there - as beautiful in real life as in the catalog, tried them on and...

they looked ridiculous. My feet looked like little round knobs. I don't know if the toe was too round or what, but the ankles were baggy - everything was just WRONG. And these were my back-up boots. My go-to-if-I-can't-find-any-other-boots boots. Then I was really perturbed.

So I finally settled for these, which I like a lot,

but they don't make my heart thumpity-thump.

Also picked up these which I think are fun.

Target is always my trusty friend.
Have you seen any great boots out there I should know about?

Hi so I know this girl...well maybe more like I know this blog. She has a pair of brown boots on there that I really love they are a cowboy boot but not a COW-Yipee-i-yah-boy boot. If my calves weren't the size of our great state I would totally be rockin those. www.nomoremomjeans.blogspot.com
