Boots that Work for Sight Seeing

Tomorrow is the last day to enter our memory board giveaway!

Happy Monday lovelies! I’m back…barely. We got in after 1 AM last night and the dude was, of course, up bright and early this morning…so I have a feeling that an extra pot of java will be brewing in my kitchen today! In case you didn’t read about my plans last week, the hubs and I took a mini vacay to Syracuse, NY for a his friend’s wedding. I have to say…Syracuse was a DARLING town. The fall colors were absolutely popping and they made for a gorgeous backdrop as we strolled the historic downtown. I promise that pictures are a comin’…but until then, let me share a little story with you.

So, on Friday I decided to where my mama’s vintage rust colored suede knee high boots. They’re just gorgeous and I couldn’t believe the amount of people that stopped me in the airport about them. What can I say? My mama had style! That being said…they aren’t the easiest things to get on and off at airport security and after about eight hours in them my dogs were barkin’! I’m thinking that the next time I’m going to be walking around for hours and hours, I won’t rock a high heeled boot. Just sayin’. Unless, it’s a wedge boot perhaps…Hmmmmm.

    Love that first boot! I have a pair of wedge ankle boots that are very comfortable. I have never been able to walk in high heels so wedges are a God-send. πŸ™‚

    I have a cousin who lives in Syracuse but I’ve never been myself. Maybe I need to invite myself over, hehe.

    Oh and thanks for posting those Topez boots, I’ve been looking for flat boots that still look dressy!

    I always stick with flat boots when walking around a lot but wedges are the second best choice! I absolutely love the first pair from Saks and the Aldo Topaz boots are gorg. Glad you had fun up in ‘cuse! It is such a cute little place. That whole taking shoes off at the airport is such a pain isn’t it? I always have to re-think my shoe choices for traveling! Last time I wore pumps just because they are so easy to slip on and off.

    I wish I lived in a fancy place where over the knee boots would be appropriate.

    My wallet is probably happy, though.

    I loooove those Topshop boots, but they’re likely a bit too much wedge for me! I’m looking for old-timey-looking, brown, lace-up boots that are also flat; the only pair I found were at Kohl’s & they’re completely sold out!

    I would also highly recommend flat over the knee boots. I bought mine a couple of weeks ago and almost literally have not taken them off. I fully intend on traveling in them next week – I’ll let you know how it goes. So glad to hear you had a great weekend!

    Please don’t laugh at me, but I gasped a little bit when I saw those first boots. They are “boot-i-ful”. Yes, I typed it. I’m embarrassed for me too.
