Happy Hump Day and cheers from the Great North. It’s a week of flashbacks because this gal cannot find a spot to take pictures. Ok there is a ton of places to take pictures but no tripod or Instahusband so we make do.Tomorrow this gal is getting up early to go take fun pictures but in the meantime how about a warm rainy day in Ottawa? Finally a chance to bring out the Grey Hunter Boots and jump in puddles.
Hunter Boots Yea or Nay?
Hunter Boots were popping up everywhere when I first started blogging. Now I loved rain boots and had a bright yellow pair and a pair with roses but I had Hunter envy. This was the first time I would be hot with the blogger envy of you are wearing it and I need it. It was not to be the last time just the first time.
I struggled with the cost and wondered were they really that different from my $20.00 Giant Tiger Rose Boots or the 20.00 Yellow ones from Zellers? I mean they had to be better, everyone was telling me so. I finally broke down and found a pair on my way to Blissdom. I had made it, I was officially I had my own pair of Hunters.
I had my first pair of hunters and I wore them proudly and the first time I wore them I knew. It’s true folks I just knew, that shocker of shockers they were no different. They cost more but they did not have better support, they were not warmer, and they did not keep my feet any more dry than the others. They did have a real pretty logo on them but they didn’t have bright red roses. Now don’t take this the wrong way I do still love my boots but i also love the other two pairs just as much. Lesson learned, evaluate the why first. Are you paying for a name, a reputation or status?
Have you got caught up in blogger envy? Have you purchased it because everyone else was? Any blogger regrets? Share and make me feel better about my mistakes OK.
J Crew Dress and Today’s Look
Wearing the best LBD (with white) dress you could ever own. perfect line, pockets and perfect with heels, boots or even converse. Today I threw on a fun color trimmed blazer a fun pair of wedges and a matching necklace. A true duocromatic look of black and white.
The Hunters were necessary because it rained like crazy.
