I’ve been seeing cute outfits like this all over pintrest. I’ve also been dying for a pair of boots similar to those for about a year or more now. I’m cheap though and I also usually feel a little guilty for spending too much on myself when I know that the money could be used on something more important. Like bills or clothes for the kids or the AH since he works outside of the home.
A couple of weeks ago I was in Target and I moseyed on over to the shoe section(I was alone, there is no causally browsing the shoes when I’m with the boys). They had several different styles of boots I wasn’t in love with any of them, I have a certain look I’m looking for but I thought I’d try some on to see what size I might wear in them. Strangely my feet grew about a half-size after I had the boys. That or the shoes have gotten smaller. I discovered that I would need a size 7 and that none of them would zip past my calf. Yeah, I discovered I have large,(fat?) calves. That blows! Maybe it’s not that they are large just not in the right place as a normal height person? I’m short, really short(I’m 5 feet and zero inches tall) and I have to buy petite jeans and pants or they are literally 4 in or more too long. Maybe my calves are lower down that a taller persons would be and that’s why the boots won’t zip(wishful thinking perhaps).
You can tell I’ve thought about this because I was annoyed that none of them fit. That happens a lot to me. I rarely can buy regular clothes and have them look nice on me. They are always too small in the bust area, too long in the sleeves or the crotch. It drives my crazy! Now I can add large calves to that mix. Apparently I’m not the only one with this problem because I googled it. I found out that I would probably need a boot in wide width for larger calves.
As I was searching I discovered Target is having a pretty good sale online in their shoe department. It’s buy one get the other half off and free shipping. So I bought two pairs and I’m almost positive one will NOT fit over my calves, but I thought I’d give it a go since they don’t zip but just pull on.
I love these! Love the color and the buckle and they are real leather. I don’t think I’ll have a calf issue with theses because they don’t go as high as some of the others. They can be found here.
These are the ones that I’m thinking might not fit my large calves. They come in brown too and I liked those better, but since I’m getting the others in brown I went with black here. They can be found here.
Why yes I am a large calved women and annoyed about it! 🙂
When I told the AH apparently I have fat calves, this song popped into my head. I love a good Queen song.
Hey, Freddie Mercury he has on some knee boots too. I bet his calves weren’t to fat for the normal ones. 😉 I will not however, be wearing my wide width boots with plastic pants and suspenders. Freddie can keep that look.
