Fringe Benefits

8 1/2 months pregnant + first West Coast dr appt = as good of a reason as any to break out the fringe booties.

I wasn’t sure about bringing these boots with me out here; I figured it’d be a zillion degrees and I’d spend 99.9% of my time in my favorite sandals (these in black, which if you do not own yet, you should probably go do that; nearly every single one of my friends owns a pair at this point and I swear: everyone who has them rhapsodizes about them).

But I ended up having room to bring The Booties along, and as it turns out: excellent decision. Because t-shirt + shorts + sandals equals “getting dressed”…but t-shirt + shorts + fringe booties equals OUTFIT. That basic formula plus a hat and round sunglasses has turned into my everyday uniform out here.

I get lots and lots of questions about these Nine West Vintage America Runyon boots (you can see a better shot of them here) – but they’re no longer available, alas (although you can find them on eBay), so let’s talk alternatives.

(The first pair shown are my favorites. Yours?)
