Well, I just have to say I've been bitten by the bug.
Not just any bug, mind you, but the BOOT BUG!
I've just got me a pair of the coolest, most beautiful, stylin', fabulous boots EVER! Here, take a look at them:
And can you tell they match my hair, too? Oh dear! These are some fabulous, amazing boots if I must say so myself! One of the things I love about them is how the toe fades to a deeper shade making my size 11 foot appear smaller. At least like a 10 and a half don't ya think?
I'm so excited about these boots and how they'll go with everything in my wardrobe (yes, Kathy, I'm even getting leggings, smile!) that I want to encourage you today with your boot-buying.
See, here's the thing. I trained two new image consultants this weekend at my image training course. Mary came from Dallas, TX and Sherry came from Alberta, Canada. They had boots on when I picked them up at the airport.
They had boots on when I picked them up for dinner.
They had boots on when I picked them up for training the next day.
They had boots on when we went to the mall.
Basically, I think they even slept in boots. (Not sure about that, but I did want to sneak in and check, but I didn't. Are there slipper boots out there?)
They even BOUGHT some new boots when they were here. And not just one pair.
So they convinced me I needed a pair. (You'd be convinced too, if you were the only one who didn't own a pair!)
Mary found them.
She came rushing up and told us she found the PERFECT pair of boots for Shari!
So we ran BACK up the escalator to see them. And Wow.
But NOT being an impulse buyer, I had to be certain they would go with my wardrobe. So I examined it when I got home, knew I'd need to add a couple pair of leggings and tights to go with my sweaters and capes I already own, and picked up the phone and called my favorite shoe guy at Dillards and ordered me a pair (cause girls, you just can't always find those 11's, ya know?)
And so, they arrived yesterday...and oooohhhhh are they every purty!
So now I want YOU to get a pair! And you don't have to spend a lot, or buy more than one. Just find a pair that will be casual enough to go with most of your outfits and FOR SURE if you are only buying one, get the color to match your hair so you can have a head to toe look. I did a little research for you and found that Payless is having a bonkers sale right now where you can buy one get one and half. So maybe you CAN get 2 pairs, or you buy one for you and then buy one for your daughter. Or take a friend and split it down the middle. Cause honestly, when I looked around EVERYWHERE we went, I really was the only one NOT wearing boots. What's THAT about?
And best of all, they are comfy, (especially if you get a flat or wedge heel) and they are stylin'!
Here's a pic of some at Payless:
And then don't forget to add some tights or leggings:
Since it's getting cold in places, I'm excited to get my boots in gear!
I'll be wearing them to Alabama tomorrow as I head out to speak this weekend so if you see me in the airport you'll know it's me!
And in honor of my mother's birthday (she would have been 74 today!), I'm going to give away a pair of FABULOUS tights to go with your new boots or your flats. My mother was the most fashionable person I ever knew so I hope you'll enjoy them!
Leave a comment telling me your take on boots and next week I'll announce a winner.
Love you girls!!!!
