A whole lot of blah and some boots

Sorry for the lack of posts the last few days, I’ve been feeling uninspired.  Well…boring is probably more honest.

Summer is ending, it’s hot and we’ve been hibernating in our A/C house, homeschooling is looming (and I feel overwhelmed even though I plan to do things VERY simply), I’ve been retreating into too many novels lately, the ants in my house are driving me loco again (time to call in some professional help!!), and… I’m totally in a little funk.

Tomorrow is Rusty’s birthday, so I’ll be back with a post dedicated to my little man and hopefully that will get the ball rolling and I will be back to my blog happy self!  🙂

In the meantime… you can help me decide whether or not to keep these boots I just bought…
The current consensus is that they are a little too cowboy for me.  Perhaps I should be looking at something in more of a riding boot style, like these:
Thoughts?  I have bought and taken back black tights about 3 times, and now FINALLY have found some tops that cover enough to have them be reasonably flattering.  I’d love to get a pair of boots to wear with them during the winter months when ballerina flats just look silly and freezing.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to take them back… sigh. It’s hard to find the time to shop, and usually when I do it’s too late in the season to find anything cute in my size. I was so hoping this impulse buy the other night would end up working out, but I don’t think so. 🙁 So now it’s fingers crossed that I can find a cute pair of riding boots for a decent price! Any ideas where to look?

    I love riding boots. I always struggle with the cowboy thing too. I like them but never feel like I can pull them off. Everyone can pull off a riding boot style! After searching for years I finally found a pair of boots last year I liked. I eyed them off waiting for them to go on sale for months! Finally as we were walking past the shop, yet again Joel dragged me in and made me buy them. Thank goodness he did! I wear them every day at the moment and now he said he should have bought them for me in the other colour too. Sometimes shoes are hard!

      I think I may have found a pair of riding-ish boots I like. They have a tiny touch of the biker boot style that is big here right now, but nothing too flashy. I find accessories like shoes and bags very hard! I don’t have a good fashion sense and quite simply like a one boot or bag fits all outfits kind of thing. Glad you found a good pair!!
