So. Should we talk about the over-the-knee boots, or should we just let them claim their place as the elephant in the room?
Here's the deal.
I'm moving away from my "booties only" phase and into ... well, these I guess. And I'm not completely out of the awkward stage with them yet.
See, most of the time my goal has been to try and look effortlessly thrown together. That's the thing now right? Effortlessness! "I woke up like this, totally." And there's a real safety in that approach; being able to seize the day knowing that no matter who you encounter, no one will be able to sense the level or lack of deliberateness that was exerted during the decision making that morning. The standby "oh this old thing?" approach - a cliche for a reason. TRYING is embarrassing! (I could monologue about the ridiculousness of this social standard, but I'll keep a cork in it, because dude I live by it too) Point is, THESE suckers go in the exact opposite direction of that idea. They're here, on my legs, saying, "Hi, I'm trying today." But I'm going to go with it, embrace it a little, and cheers it even. Here's to a little more honesty in the getting dressed department and to a pair of stinking tall boots too.
