All winter, I’ve been dreaming of a pair of sturdy, multi-purpose leather combat boots. I want to replace a couple of pairs of shoes with just this one pair of boots, so this has been a decision I’ve not taken lightly.
Last month, I took the leap and purchased an inexpensive pair of faux-leather boots from Amazon – not exactly what I had originally intended but the price tag (of about $25) seduced me into buying.
They arrived one month ago yesterday, and I haven’t worn any other shoes since (other than running shoes). These boots have already made it through a rough month of work and play and I’m thrilled with how the experiment is progressing.
I wear them with both dresses and jeans, and since my office isn’t ultra-formal, they’ve been fitting in just fine. My feet are warmer and drier than they ever have been (I’ve spent the last year and a half wearing cute – but flimsy – fabric floral boots. I walked holes through the soles of two pairs.)
I think it’s about time for me to revisit my shoe “collection” and take out some of the pairs that these little workhorses will be replacing.
I know this has been a simple, single-track post, but I wanted to give you a glimpse into what I’ve been trying to simplify these past few weeks! What is your main “simplicity focus” at the moment?
