Practicality and Comfort Always Win

Tuesday, December 01, 2009
I know, I know... This looks like what I wore just a few days ago here. But you know how it is when you wake up and it's cold and you're tired and the last thing on your mind is to wear a skirt and get dolled up. Especially since it's crunch time...for school, I mean.

Did anyone do any Cyber Monday shopping? I am SO guilty. I bought three pairs of shoes. But I think it was legit because two were boots that I desperately need. That's all the reasoning I've got. My purchases are probably good enough for two Christmases...or four.

  7. Just because your comfy doesn't mean you can't still look good and you definitely still look good! Good luck with all the school stuff. As for Cyber Monday, I did a little shopping but not a ton. One present for someone else and three things for me!

  29. Ok so I got my black boots winterized at a cobbler, for like $30. I have no idea where you live but at Kelsch Shoe Repair in Provo they do a fantastic job with shoe stuff :)Cobblers are also great for broken heels. I've had tons of heels snap right off and they brought them back to life.
