Wearing Jeans… Wearing Boots…

It is October 1st! Officially boot season. The anticipation has been building, and the weather was perfect this morning. Some of my boots have seen better days, so I am waiting for a visit from the boot fairy. But for now, I was just excited to get them on.What all this means is that I had to also get my jeans into shape. I haven’t worn them in so long I practically had to wrestle them to the ground, and after I squeezed them on I had to perform the proper gymnastics to break them in. Kind of like when you take jeans out of the dryer and need to wiggle around a bit before they are comfortable.

Several sets of lunges, squats and high kicks later I was mobile and my jeans fit like a second layer of skin. No small feat, mind you! It was quite the little work-out, but after I break in a few more pairs I think I will be ready to perform the high vault in my living room. Also, I haven’t the slightest clue how I am getting them off tonight, but I have many hours before I need to worry about that. And I think I have a screwdriver at home somewhere. Jean wearing should totally become a new Olympic sport.

Luckily for me, the start of boot season coincided nicely with the weekend I will have a million errands to run. I am much more agile in boots and can perform all sorts of savvy tricks. Watch! Watch! I will just be Little Miss Efficient on Saturday. I *might* even stop into the boot store and visit the boot fairy myself.

I haven’t the slightest clue when I will actually have the time for any serious boot shopping, considering there are eighty other things that I need to shop for, but I figure there is no harm in compiling a list of possibilities.

This is my want want want list:

Oscar de la Renta

Christian Louboutin


Marc Jacobs

Versace (Ok, these aren’t boots… but I still want…)



  1. Gilt is what I look like when I want to imagine what it’s like to be a rich person. Even at discount prices I can’t afford much… but once in a while…
