I know, utter frivolity. It's Friday.
OK, so here's the thing. I have very deliberately not been buying stuff for myself.
After the boy was born, I bought a bunch of nursing tops and bras, and recently I've gotten a couple cute and nursing-friendly sweaters and tops.
But other than that, I've abstained from purchasing clothing or shoes. And random stuff, like lip gloss. Do you know how much lip gloss I own? Because it's such a small expense, and an easy way to perk up your day.
Small expense until you average one a week. Ridiculous.
So I have not been buying anything. Except for cutiecute irresistible outfits for Jordan. But those don't count.
But I find myself with an actual NEED. I need some flat black boots that I can wear with skirts.
They have to be comfortable and easy to walk in - and you know me, I mean walk quickquick - but also cute and nice enough for the office.
I have muscular calves, and as such, a lot of boots just won't fit. So they have to zip, and they have to have decent calf room. I don't know who all these skinny-winny calved people are that most boot makers cater to, but my friends and I do not seem to be among them.
However, they don't have to fit over jeans, because I will not be wearing them that way. As my old boss said, if you were around for the trend the first time, best not to repeat it.
So if any of you have seen or gotten any cute boots lately, I'd love suggestions.
And happy Friday!
