Tall Black Boots - #NaBloPoMo 21

New boots and patterned tights!
No joke: when I talk about clothing on this blog, you all seem to go wild. I'm by no means a fashion blogger, but once in a while, I like to talk about clothes, and you all DIG. IT. It's Friday, this is my 22nd straight blog post and I've no more words left in my brain. Therefore I give you my new tall black boots.

I've only been wearing boots like this for a few years now, because the first time I ever tried on a pair was a disaster. It's one of those moments burned in my memory. I stopped in a shoe store in Porter Square while waiting for the next commuter rail to arrive (after I'd graduated college, but was still living in Waltham). I just barely got the boots on, decided they were not for me, and then after getting one off easily, the other would not budge. Not a bit. Fortunately, the sales girls were at the front of the store, oblivious to my plight, as I pulled and pulled. I have no idea how I finally got that boot off, but it terrified me to ever try on boots in public for many years. Thank goodness for advancements in Internet shopping since then.

My last pair of tall black boots was very cute, but VERY uncomfortable. I've worn them for a couple of years now, and the pounding in my heels meant agony by the end of the day. So this time I spent a lot of time reading reviews, with comfort high on my list of must-haves. Here's the pair I found, and it's a match made in heaven. It's my second full day wearing them now, and I don't have a single complaint!

What about you? Any new items you're dying to tell the world about?
