Baby Make Your Booties Go

Sweater: Old Navy | Tank: Target | Skirt: Target | Booties: Betsey Johnson | Tights: Vera Wang for Kohl's | Earrings: Target | Ring: F21 | Monogram necklace: eBay

These are my first legitimate pair of honest-to-God, no peep-toe in sight, cut-you-off-at-the-cankle booties, and I am so smitten it's a little gross. I cradled them like babies when they showed up in the mail and they haven't even darkened the doorway of the closet because I refuse to put them where I can't see them.

You may have started to deduce that I am the opposite of boho. I don't do a lot of flowy, I routinely mock my old roommate who wears her headbands around her forehead like a hippie (and somehow still looks amazing, both because she is lucky little bitch and because the world is a cold and uncaring place devoid of natural justice), and I hate fringe. That could either be the anti-boho thing or a natural side effect of growing up at 4-H rodeos.

I found these boots on Pinterest back when Pinterest was still a "what's that" (you know, back when we were walking to class uphill both ways in the snow, without iPhones) and I couldn't get them out of my head. Ever since, the little free spirit flower child I keep chained up in the Rapunzel tower in my brain has been quietly searching for fringe boots, and I swear to you the moment I saw these on megasale at Piperlime I had Kendi-style shopping amnesia. I woke up to a credit card in my hand and an order confirmation email. It's a medical condition, people.

P.S. How much fun is it to come up with a post title when you're wearing booties? I flirted with pirate jokes and a shoutout to Limp Bizkit (I Did It All For the Booties... couldn't bring myself to use it, couldn't let it go. It is what it is). In the end, Sisqo won, because when the Thong Song came out I sincerely believed it was about shoes/thong sandals and that's too full circle to pass up.

Linking up on IFB today! :)
