It’s a Boot-iful Thing

After many moons of trying to stuff my feet into shoes and boots that pinched, it finally dawned on me that my shoe size might have changed. ¬†Apparently this can happen as you age and the arches and pads of your feet “settle.” ¬†Who knew? ¬†Sure enough, I’ve steadily gone from a 5 to 5.5 to 6 to 6.5 over the course of my adult life. ¬†Now, I’m solidly a 7! ¬†So, I’ve been slowly replacing some essentials– work shoes, flats, barn boots… and thought I’d take advantage of the end of season sales to get some pac boots. ¬†I totally scored when I found this pair of Khombu Arctic 2 Boots. ¬†They are rated for -20, completely waterproof, and cute to boot! (pun intended). ¬†And just when I was thinking I’d have to wait until next year to really give them a work out, winter still seems to have plenty of snow in store for us.

While I was at it, I also picked up a pair of these awesome Lucky Brand Fair Isle Slippers to keep me warm.

My “Lucky” slippers– ha ha.

 

I have a feeling I’ll still be getting plenty of use out of both!
