photostory friday - kickin' in our new boots!

tara and i had an impromptu trip to the mall last friday (on our respective days off). i'd been looking for flattish brown boots most of this winter and tara was looking for some black boots to go over her new black jeans.

i guess the planets were all in alignment that day, because we BOTH FOUND SOME!

because it was warm, and because we had a few minutes up our sleeves before school got out, we celebrated by stopping off at a local beach to take some fun shots.

note that tara has hidden her shopping bag BEHIND mine because it's so much smaller
she has shopping bag envy!
i just love my new boots!
i don't know where i was going with this. i guess i just got caught up in the moment
maybe i had spring fever or something...

so, does this ever happen to you? i was actually re-visiting the same shoe store to see if ANOTHER pair of boots i had my eye on had been FURTHER DISCOUNTED.
they had not, and i ended up buying a NEW SEASON pair - that were another $80!
the shop assistant said "my husband says, why don't you just go for the MOST EXPENSIVE pair straight away"!

he might have a point!
then it was tara's turn to try hers on, but oh no!
she has sweaty feet and can't get them on!
so i'll just hold them up against my person so you can see, ok?
a good day

Those are some beautiful boots. I totally hate shoe shopping because it takes me forever to find shoes that feel like heaven. I can't stand for any part of my feet to be squished. I think that is a personal problem. Surely there are meds for that. :-)

What awesome new boots! I used to have red flats that I had a huge affection for. They were fabulous. But boots are all that much better.

Hey, I thought I left a comment about your boots. Maybe you posted them on Facebook and I saw them there???? Anyway, very cute. You look hot!

CC said...

Those are sooooo cute! But I notice you are on the sand. Get any sand stuck in those new boots??? ;)

Kitty said...

First of all, you look like a beautiful, fun, free-spirited lady! That being said, I may have to lock you in a closet, so I can steal your equally beautiful and fun new boots. Sorry honey. Don't take it personally. I just sorta black out over shoes sometimes. JK :)
