Although I had put my cowboy boots, very much loved and almost falling apart, away for the last year or two, I had built a craving so strong I couldn’t help but pull them out. Are cowboy boots out of fashion? I dunno. Were they ever in? I am sure at some point. I remember a few years ago one of my best friends and I used to wear them with everything. Jeans, dresses, shorts, EVERYTHING. She had a perfectly worn in black pair that I used to wear every time she didn’t, despite them having a hole in the sole. Who cares, wear thicker socks!
These saddle tan colored ones are almost as worn in, and make me just as happy, as my friend’s black ones. When I put on this dress I knew the boots would be all too perfect with it. As soon as the boots were on I also knew my fuchsia hat had to be in the mix. Why? I dunno, it just had to happen. Some outfits are like that, they just aren’t perfect without a hat. Like the day I wore the Mickey ears all day, remember that? Sometimes my own wardrobe choices surprise me, but somehow for that day it feels good. And that, my friends, is all that really matters.
