One must always have one's boots on and be ready to go.
Michel de Montaigne

While in Jefferson City a few weeks ago, I cleanly broke the heel of my very favorite boots while trekking around on the hilly streets. A little bit of super glue got me through the day but I was so sad that I officially wore them out!

I tend to find a style I like in clothing and just go with it. I am definitely guilty of having four pairs of the same pants, three of the same turtlenecks and five of the same sweater set - all different colors but really just the same darn thing!

I bought a pair of pointy toe, black, knee high boots a year and a half ago. They were comfortable and had good style. Great for work and play all winter.

I've replaced the heel tips but literally wore out the soles. I knew those heels were going and, crack, they went!

Poor old boots.

So I really loved those boots and honestly, would have bought the exact same pair again! I searched high and low in local stores but I've missed the "boot season" - hey, it's spring right? Sandals for everyone even though it is still cold out!

I headed to some online sites and got a great clearance deal on exactly what I was looking for at 6pm.com. Definitely just as close as I could get to my favorite black boots.

Pretty new boots.

I was so excited when my new boots arrived. Nick just looked at the old boots, then the new boots. Back to the old boots.

"Princess. You bought the same boots!"

Not really the same, a different brand actually. But you know, if it works then go with it!

lol I'm the same way! When I find something flattering I buy several in case I can't find it ever again. Have fun in those boots!

I am exactly like that! I just wore out my favorite black ballet flats, and I've been kicking myself that I didn't buy two pairs! Instead I went to Aldo and bought a black pair of flats almost identical to a white pair I got last season! Ha!

Cute boots! I hate when you find a pair of shoes, pants, shirt, etc...and they wear out...really makes me sad. Hope you love your new boots!

I really like the new boots, and I think that I really need some new ones too. Though I'll probably wait until next boot season! :)
