The boot

Last week, before the weather suddenly turned to winter, I took out one of my favorite fall dresses, and my least favorite pair of boots.

They were my least favorite because they were terribly painful to wear, yet I'd put up with them for years. Well no more. They went out with my closet clean out this past weekend, and this is the last you will ever see of them.

Now I just need to find a comfortable replacement...

  1. Great Dress! Too bad about the boots they are cute but not worth it if they hurt! Hope you find a replacement soon.

  7. Aw man! Good for you though! I have a similar pair that is REALLY comfy from Charlotte Russe (which usually has the most uncomfortable shoes ever). I love the way they look with this dress!

  8. Fall beauty! The print and colors in that dress are so perfect for the season, I'd have never guessed those boots were uncomfy, they look so comfy to me, but putting them out was such a wise idea, there's no need for your feet to hurt, good luck finding the perfect comfy replacement, these are perfect for any fall/winter look!

  9. On the bright side, you get to go boot shopping! And got rid of shoes that sounds agonizing. I think this is a total win for you.

  16. This dress! Honestly, this could be the piece that converts me to colour... it is just so gorgeous and in spite of the fact that it's printed, is a perfect match for leopard. This definitely one of my favourite looks from you this fall :)

  18. What a pity, your boots don't even look uncomfortable.
    But a wise decision - clothes or shoes that don't make us feel comfortable wearing them (for whatever reason) have to go!

    I love your necklace!

  19. The colors and pattern of this dress are amazing! I think the boots are pretty too, but there's no sense in keeping uncomfortable footwear. I mean, our precious feet take us everywhere day in and day out, usually without complaining, so when they do pipe up it's probably reasonable to listen :)

  21. You look so incredibly good in this dress. Like it was made for you! And good for you throwing those boots out. I hope you find a good (and not too expensive!) replacement soon. Cognac boots are a must-have in fall ^^ xo

  22. Gorgeous dress on you; I love the colors!

    I just took several pairs of my least favorite (most painful) shoes to Buffalo Exchange this weekend because I can't stand to wear them for even half a day. At least I get to shop for replacements now!

  27. I love purple in the fall SO MUCH. I just had the same problem with the boots I'm wearing in my "cape" post. I don't understand why they are so uncomfortable around the ankles. I haven't given up on them JUST yet but am pretty close.

  31. I'm in love with that dress and especially those colors paired with the painful boots! But good for you getting rid of them... I can do a pretty mean closet purge, but I'm just miserable at getting rid of shoes, no matter how painful they are! Attachment issues...

  44. This dress looks sooooooooooooooooooo good on you! I love the shape, the pattern, and the colors! Sorry to hear your boots are so uncomfortable, but I think you made the right choice in giving them away. I had to do the same with several pairs of heels that were just too uncomfortable and unpractical.
