Truth: I didn’t think that thigh-high boots were something that I’d be able to wear.

But let’s be honest: the fact that an item of clothing is perhaps vaguely inappropriate for a given set of circumstances isn’t something that’s ever stopped me before.

I literally hear “These Boots Were Made For Walkin'” playing in my head when I’m walking down the street wearing these. Literally.
I wore them out last weekend night with a sweaterdress and tights to get burgers and beer on Main Street, and sure, I may have been the only mama at the picnic table wearing boots quiiite that high…but that’s fine by me.
