There are two things bringing me to my knees this week:
1) Influenza. I hate calling it “The Flu” – it is not a gangster rapper, it is a highly respectable illness that has captured the lives of many people. Not a particularly cheery thought, but it is more hardcore than “The Flu”, it’s f**king INFLUENZA.
(SIDENOTE: Did you know that Influenza was first described by Hippocrates roughtly 2,400 years ago? Yeah. “The Flu.”)
2) Short-heeled or wedge lace-up ankle boots. Yep, I drank the Kool-Aid. Remember what the OFC said about this boot business?
Well, after gawking endlessly for hours at the gorgeous Chloé boots, and then seeing the stunner from Disctrict of Chic in her adorable Born boots from Eddie Bauer – it’s hard not to just start relentlessly coveting, you know?
So, for the last few weeks, I’ve been searching and searching for a non-knockoff, delicious boot that meets my aesthetic bootie needs. It’s been harder than I thought.
I like the nice blend of utility and rugged style. I dig how they look with thick, off-white socks, or skinny jeans. They’re unexpected, and I think that’s why I want them so badly.
T.U.K. Lace-Up Boot $59.95
Dr. Martens Darcie 8 Eye Boot $129.95
Also in brown!
And my favorite…
Steve Madden “Iness” Boot $99.95
Also in black!
It’s really between the Iness boots and the Chelsea Crew boots… Then again, the Timberland boots are really nice (wow, did I really just say that?), but I’m not sure about the contrasting colors.
Which are your favorite? Any? All? None? Do you hate this post?
