Living in Oklahoma has its advantages: friendly people, it’s not too crowded, low cost of living, and we get to experience all the seasons. It also has its disadvantages: tornadoes, wind, and well, we get to experience all the seasons (sometimes all in one week!). By seasons I mean boiling hot summers, freezing cold winters and a few weeks (if we’re lucky) in between each of somewhat “milder” temperatures. Because it stays pretty cold here in the Fall/Winter, my daytime footwear pretty much consists of boots from October through February.
Ankle, over-the-knee, and all heights in between- they’re warm, comfortable and easy to dress up or down! I’m not a t-shirt and sweats person so my idea of a really casual outfit is a cute top or sweater with jeans tucked into boots. Easy, comfortable, and still looks a little bit like I tried! I have one pair of skinny ankle-length jeans that are perfect for tucking into jeans (that’s the only way I wear them!) but I wanted the option of being able to wear other jeans with boots too and still have them feel like they’re really tucked in! And I found an easy way to do it: boot straps!
The pair I bought are Hollywood Boot Straps (I picked them up at Bed Bath and Beyond for $12.) (You can click the link or the photo to buy!)
