the boot lover

I love summer just as much as the next gal. I’ve been enjoying mine in the most fabulous lake house I could ever dream up (um… also my childhood home, now on the market), so it will be a bit sad when the cool air really starts to roll in and the time comes to move along. That said, there is something to be said for Fall in Maine. There is a certain unexplainable crisp quality to the air, the leaves take on the most vibrant hues, and heck… it’s apple-picking season! It’s also just about that time when you’re ready to store those sundresses for the season and cozy up in your favorite pair of jeans. In my world, Fall also signifies the start of my favorite shoe season… all hail the boot!

I love boots. My current go-tos are a pair of over-the-knee black flats from Tashkent by Cheyenne and a pair of mid-calf brandy colored sturdy boots, with pull loops and solid (and fully walkable) 3″ heels from Fiorentini + Baker. Neither of these favorites were cheap. In fact, I’m almost certain that they both fall in the top range of pricey purchases I’ve made in my lifetime (not including shop acquisitions, of course), but they were both SO worth it. I’ve had to re-sole them each at least once, and still seem get at least one compliment for every day I wear them. There really is something to be said for quality. If given the opportunity, I might add one of these new beauties to my collection. These are the ones that will allow you to walk for miles without a blister… the ones that will be your favorites today AND in 5 years… the ones that have that classic, timeless beauty.
