a bit of country bootie

If you follow me on twitter, you'll know that I got these awesome Express cowboy booties on super clearance a couple of weeks ago. Since then, I've been "practice-wearing" them when I ran errands or for quick trips to the library or the grocers. I've always wanted a pair of cowboy boots, but alas, I inherited my dad's thick calves, so finding a pair that isn't gigantic on my feet just so I can slip them up my legs deterred me from ever owning some.

Enter the bootie. Booties have definitely saved me from pulling my hair out over not being able to wear certain boot styles. And when you add Cowboy to Bootie? It's like my dream just manifested itself on earth.

  1. I love those booties, the laser cut details are super fun! I have thick calves too and it makes boot shopping so hard. Love these especially with your blousy top. Hope your Monday is off to a good start!

  17. Adore the claw bracelet...been eyeing a similar ring and ear cuff! Really like how that top and skirt almost have a drop-waist dress effect.

  21. I also have thick calves, I didn't when I was really young but sometime or another the thick calves just popped out from under the bed and REFUSED to go back under it. I adore these booties, I bought a pair of cowboy booties awhile back from Target and I liked them for a bit and then they started tearing up my heel, I think I'm just a difficult walker, I refuse to blame the shoes (usually). I adore your hair, you look so pretty in every single post.

  28. Being a guy, I can't really comment on the boots, but damn girl your calves are awesome! Hope you're proud of them.

    I know this is a weird thing to ask, but you should post some pictures of you flexing them on your blog just to show everybody how awesome they are.
