Oh, March. I guess you didn’t get the “out like a lamb” memo, huh?
I’m not having the best of days. Today is my 3rd wedding anniversary (and thank goodness we didn’t get weather like this three years ago!), but we’re not doing anything to celebrate, which makes me sad. Add to that the fact that I’m not feeling great, and it’s snowed constantly since this time yesterday and I’m not a happy Shoeperwoman. First world problems! But on to the shoes…
I had thought I’d seen the last of these boots (and the coat, and the hat…) for this winter, but nope! They’re a couple of years old now, and I bought the cheapest pair I could find, because I wasn’t sure how much wear, if any, I’d get out of a pair of over-the-knee boots. As it turns out, the answer to that was “A LOT of wear”, and these quickly became one of my go-to winter boots. I wear them with absolutely everything, and although they’re actually still holding up pretty well considering, I think that when they finally do fall apart, I’ll probably invest in a leather pair next.
Of course, mock-suede boots are of no use at all in the snow, but luckily I was only going from door to car to store, so I decided to risk it in the interests of the Shoe Challenge. Please let these be the last boots of the winter, though, weather Gods? Pretty please?
The timer on my camera has also developed the talent of always catching Rubin with his tongue out. Today:
Or maybe it’s just that Rubin’s developed the talent of sticking his tounge out when the shutter closes? He did it last week on Dollface, too.
