Shoesday: Wintertime

 a) I dared to wear open toe heels and opaque tights
b) rainy outside and slippery on the tram
c) cowboy boots 
d) and cowboy boots again.

It finally turned freezing in my town, so I haven't been too adventurous with my footwear. It's never snowing freezing, just crispy freezing and sometimes rainy. When it's NOT rainy I can wear my trusty cowboy boots. They've given up the ghost and have cracks in the soles. And I have cracks in my soul because of them. I love them so much. I wish they could last longer.

This Shoesday, I'm starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel workwise, so I'm pretty happy. I'm making dahl for my darling, and getting my Sew Weekly notes and photos together so I'll have some sewing adventures to show you soon. And we went on *quite* the adventure to get the photos this time. Hilarity WILL ensue!

Hope you're well xoxo


  1. I know how you feel about you cowboy boots! I *had* to go to Vegas to replace mine an I still think I should have bought more... Maybe a trip to Vegas for Shoesday is in order ;) xxx Renae

  2. Your pictures of your shoes are always so cute!
    Could you get your boots re-soled? I've had several of my favourite shoes re-soled, some of them more than once... It's worth it if you really love them!

  3. Have your boots resoled and reheeled and they will last another winter ;)

  4. I was just going to say the same thing! Take them to a cobbler at a mall!


Thanks for being awesome and a total darling, leave a message!
