Apart from shoes, there's only one thing that can put a smile on a girl's face and that is a chocolate cupcake.
However, when the taste has left, reality sets back in and we want something else. What is it about winter that makes us want comfort food and retail therapy? Speaking of retail therapy, I saw a pair of boots the other day (a particularly warm day, as luck would have it) that I adored. They looked similar to the pair below, but with floral embroidery and finishes.
I didn't buy them because: 1) Who wears boots in this weather and 2) My calves... my dear, big, athletic calves don't fit into ANY boots and they had no wide calf options available.
To add to my ongoing "what shoes to wear" crises, the out-of-season rain has increased in volume and intensity over the last week or two. My beautiful boots would have been messed up if I walked down the stairs to the street.
That's when I found the perfect solution, which is suitable for summer and winter alike.
Imagine them with skinny jeans or denim hot pants (not that I'll ever wear those again)...
For my more glamorous friends there is the wedge wellies - in pink of course:
And of course the kitten heel wellies:
I must say I really like these shoes for wet weather. They are strong, comfortable, waterproof, warm and durable. They are also cute - I love the rock star / cowgirl feel of boots and think I should grab myself a pair, really soon.
That's hoping that I can get my calves into them...
