Today has been a lovely day- blue skies, light rain, and a riot of fall colours.
It’s the sort of day you feel in your heart, something wonderful will happen.
And something wonderful did! I have an unexpected dinner guest!
She’s even staying the weekend! Mom? I’m hungry. Mom? I need to study. Mom, do you miss me?
Off I went to the store. I have a daughter to feed!
Along the way, I found a pair of ankle boots as well.
I’ve been angst-ing over getting new boots. I own one pair. They are the most comfortable pair of shoes I have. I’ve had them for the last four years.
I wear them everywhere, as soon as there is a hint of chill.
I don’t take them off until the very end of spring.
I’ve even worn them to ride Dumpling once. That’s how practical they are.
This fall though, a knee-high boot doesn’t feel quite as current for me.
Dear Francis makes that winning pair of Sprit boots.
I can’t walk in them. Dear Francis also makes these Fly boots.
The heel is lower, and there is a sliver of plexi inserted. Jane of Dear Francis patiently answered my queries. The only way to purchase the Fly though, is on-line (Young British Designers). My feet are so gnarled, in the end, I couldn’t bring myself to buy the boots without first trying them on, even as I wanted very much, to support the brand.
Square heels for support, a practical height for walking, slim rubber soles for London’s slippery streets, and a very streamlined shape-
Made in Italy, Swedish-designed, and would you believe my luck- a 10% discount on all purchases made at Matches in my village, for the next 2 days.
‘Tis meant to be.
I came home, fixed dinner, did chores in my Friday Find.
I’ve not taken them off since.
