When I went to Montana in December, my generous mother bought me something I never thought I'd return to after the early '90's: leggings. Don't get me wrong, they are cute on everyone else, but I felt naked when I put them on. Nevertheless, I fell in love with the outfit she bought me, and when she promised me boots, I was sold. I went online, bought a cute pair from Target.com and eagerly anticipated them. Every. Single. Day.
Fast forward a month and a half later. I NEVER received my boots. Disappointed? An understatement. I rarely get excited about shoes (it's the "practical" in me), but I was excited about these boots. And so, after canceling the order with Target.com, I surrendered to the idea that I'd need to start from square one...and look for cute and *inexpensive* tall boots. Hey, control your laughter.
No luck. In California the sandals are now in the local stores, as the sun has been blinding for weeks. However, feeling a little blue without my hubby around (he was on a business trip), I took the boys to Target...just to get out. I happened to look in the clearance area of the shoes, and just happened to find these:
Size 7. The same color gray I initially had wanted. And then I saw the price tag:
$3.56. That's right. Normally $40. I wanted to do a backflip, but was afraid I might pull something. I screamed inside and Christian looked at me like I was a crazy person.
When I came home I tried them on right away with my outfit.
Oh yeah. I got the belt on clearance too. $3.96. The belt cost more than the boots! I then realized that I had a Salvation Army sweater that could work with my sexy new boots too...
Don't mind the headless pics. I didn't like my hair. I'm vain. Don't judge.
And so, I readily admit, patience (and persistence) does pay off!
Sing it with me...these boots were made for walkin', and that's just what I'll do...
