New Riding Boots

5.01.2013





Jacket: Tahari (thrifted), Shirt: JCrew (thrifted), Pants: Banana Republic, Boots: Tahari, Earrings: Anthro

I didn't mean to buy these boots.
In fact, I bought them earlier in the year and returned them
because I just couldn't afford to spend hundreds of dollars on shoes.
But despite my best effort, they called  to me.

It started with an innocent trip to DSW.
I was picking something up in the area and kind wandered in to kill time.
And then I found them.
My boots.
In a size 5 1/2 (a rarity these days),
in the clearance section for super cheap,
in the color I wanted,
and in a low heel (practically flat) like I'd been searching for all winter.

I call this a fashion sign that these boots needed to be mine.
You just can't say no to destiny like that folks!

Linking up with Pleated Poppy and Through the Eyes of the Mrs and Lena B, Actually!
