I love clothes, but generally wouldn't classify myself as "stylish." However, my friends sometimes think I am (they are sweet), and I guess I do have sort of a random and eclectic personal style. So we decided maybe I should write a post that had something to do with that. I just happened to be wearing something that day that has in the past been a point of contention for me, so I figured why not tackle that as a first post in a new segment called Style Musings (not a great name I know, but I couldn't come up with anything better). And so, ladies and gentlemen, I give you: Boots and Shorts.
I live in Tucson, Arizona. A desert town that gets super hot in the summer and not very cold in the winter. A town that also is home to the University of Arizona, a place where many young ladies can be seen wearing outfits that, let's face it, I could never pull off. One outfit that can often bee seen consists of boots and shorts, a combination which I always kind of judged them for (sorry ladies).
"Why, if it is warm enough to be wearing tiny shorts, would you also want to wear big ol' boots?!" were my thoughts. Well, let me tell you, I no longer think it is the craziest idea in the world. You see, I got these super awesome moccasin boots at Buffalo Exchange and basically am wearing them any chance I get. And since it is basically Spring and in the 80s here I really wanted to wear shorts, but ALSO (and this is the most important factor) because it is in the 80s and not yet in the 100s, wearing tallish boots without dying is still actually possible. And so I suddenly understood the conditions and desire that bring such an outfit about. It was downright comfortable and I got to wear my fringy boots!
