    Awesome boots, Dawn Lucy! A pair of shoes can highlight a basic look and in the same way ruin a lovely outfit. Therefore it is important to always pay attention to the right pair of shoes… and a good reason to buy more 😉

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Thanks for hosting!!! I absolutely love those boots—and at least you're honest about the comfort! But like my friend used to say–it doesn't matter how it feels, but how do you look? jodie

      I just have to remember not to wear them anywhere I'll be walking a lot! 😉

    Fabulous shoes, but I always wonder how people walk in such high heels. I guess you have a car and just drive everywhere?

  • Reply Straight A Style February 19, 2016 at 2:19 pm

    Such fun boots! The cropped jeans were definitely the right choice to show them off!

    Oh my! Those boots are too fun and fantastic for words! I also chuckled at the part "Are they comfortable? No". What they lack in comfort, they certainly make up for in fabulousness!
