New fall boots

14 Nov

You may remember my boot dilemma – well, after many hours searching every single possible website I could think of, I finally narrowed it down to a few different pairs:

1) Material Girl Lennox Boots, $75

2) MIA Pali, $59.99

3) Madden Girl Zandora, $79

4) Madden Girl Earnie, $59.99

I had actually decided to get the Earnie boots because I liked them the best, even though I was apprehensive about the zipper only being at the bottom. But when I tried them on at Famous Footwear, they were too narrow. I tried on every other pair of boots they had in the Cognac/Camel color. No luck. None of them fit me right.

After that experience, I was pretty sure I didn’t want to buy boots online without trying them on (even though I’ve done that before). A couple of Saturdays ago, I stopped by Babies R Us and Gordman’s just happened to be next door. So I figured I’d pop in and see what they had. The only pair of tall tan boots they had were the MIA Pali boots. Famous Footwear hadn’t had those in the store when I went so I tried them on.

They fit great! They’re loose enough in the calf that I can wear skinny jeans under them and not have my circulation get cut off. They have a slight heel, which is nice and I like that the zipper runs the full length of the boot (definitely makes getting them on and off a LOT easier). They’re a nice cognac color and best of all, they’re comfortable. I even wore them taking the dogs on a walk one day. I am very pleased with these boots.

Outfit made possible by new boots!

    Have you ever seen minnatonkin tassel boots?! I got a pair and freakin love them! They’re like 75 bucks I think… They are snug in the calves but I think it’s so they don’t fall down, I tried to act small and get a size down, but that didn’t work, I needed my true size for my leg!

    I am ridiculously jealous of your dress/tights/boots combo! Or skinny jeans, or whatever it is you have on there. Its adorable. And I’m jealous! I seriously miss being able to dress up for work!
