These Boots Were Made for Walkin’

boots: c/o wanted, fringe top: forever 21, silver metallic shorts: old navy (old), jewelry: forever 21, street vendor, david yurman, black pantyhose: target

Sorry for the lack of smiles in my outfit post today…I pretty much had the worst day ever. I’ll spare you the details but, in short, my family dog died (Penny, not Winnie!), my passport expired and my dad is breathing down my neck about booking a plane ticket to Norway for Christmas since prices go up every day, my previous landlord is stiffing us majorly on our security deposit which we are depending on for December rent…oy vey. It’s been a rough day, to say the least.

On the plus side, Wanted sent me this fabulous pair of boots I picked out because they wanted my opinion on the whole experience. I say any company that a) seeks the opinion of bloggers, and b) cares that much about providing the best quality and customer service, is A+ in my book. And on top of it all, these are the first pair of boots I can wear that actually zip up my calves. I don’t know what it is, but these stubby little legs were not made for boots. Til now. They fit perfectly, and are so comfortable! I love that they’re eco friendly in that they’re not real leather (but I had to look it up to see that it wasn’t–it looks so real!) and that I could walk for miles in these flat boots.

I love how they look with shorts and sheer black hose, don’t you? And how about the return of this fringe sweater (seen here)?

Here’s the box they came in – isn’t it so pretty? I will be wearing holes into the soles of these boots, for sure.

    Love Love Love this outfit! I've been really into wearing grey as an alternative to black. It feels less harsh and more flattering, depending on the shade.

    Love the fringe top little lady! Also, omg, I have such big calves. I have SLLs too (stubby little legs) and my stems were NOT made for boots, either. it sucks. I see so many I love, but I put them on, and the zipper stops just as my calf starts. I'll have to check these out!

      These have a stretch panel in the back which virtually eliminates our problem!

    So sorry about your dog, honey, and all your woes!
    I used to shop Wanted in Australia…one of my fave pairs of flat boots is from there. I like the way you styled these!

    Kristina – Sorry you had such a rough day yesterday. At least you looked smashing while going through it all. The gray on gray is a great combination and I'm liking the new black boots! – Katy

    Those boots look awesome! I made a pact with myself not long ago though that I would only wear leather shoes from now on to let my feet breathe!

    My sister-in-law works at forever21, and i did not like this shirt when she showed it to me. now i know the problem was the styling because it looks adorable on you.

      aww katie beth that means so much, thank you! i bet it would look gorgeous on you!

    Those boots are so gorgeous lady…and they look ridiculously comfortable!

    • 11.15.2010 / 8:13 pm

      amazingly, they are! i always thought boots had to be uncomfortable because no pain = no gain, but dang, these are like wearing ballet flats!

    Hi Kristina, I really like the outfit. Everything about it. I think you should stop commenting on your legs. That's how people will come to think of you. You are beautiful, petite, blonde and sparkly, HOW MUCH better could life be. You look great in the boots. Keep up the good work!

    • 11.15.2010 / 8:14 pm

      Haha yes well you're right I should focus on the positive – but at least now y'all know that flaws and insecurities can plague the best of us! now, how to overcome them……

    #1 That fringed sweater is the cutest thing on the planet.
    #2 SO funny that you photographed the box…I used to do marketing for Wanted Shoes 🙂

    I have the same problem with boots! 🙁 these stubby legs are just not made for boots i guess .
    Your boots look amazing by the way!

    • 11.15.2010 / 8:15 pm

      I recommend trying this pair – it has a mesh panel that is very giving in the back, and if my large calves can fit in them, I'll bet yours can too!
