Winged Chucks

These wings that are made to attach to shoes via their shoelaces are awesome! I want some for my Chucks! I wonder if they come in big kid sizes :).

Summer Boots

“Cinch” Ankle Boots, $149.95; Steve Madden.com

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I have an obsession with boots. I have quite a few pairs ranging from tan, western-inspired ankle boots to sleek, black, heeled boots. It all started with a pair of $40 tall, flat, moto boots that I bought at Target about 7 years ago. At the time, I agonized over the decision to purchase them because they would have been my first pair of tall boots (coming to just under my kneecap) and I didn’t know if they would look good on me or not… Despite not knowing if I would every actually wear the boots, I gave into the temptation and bought them. I’m so glad I did because now I wear them almost every day.

That is, I wear them almost every day during the colder months. Sadly, their is no way to fulfill my boot obsession during the summer. …or, at least that’s what I thought until I stumbled upon these Steve Madden ankle boots in the e-newsletter they send me (much too often for the health of my checkbook). The cutouts and the short, ankle height makes them the perfect warm weather boot! I’m also loving the heel height; it adds just enough lift to give the boot an elegant shape while remaining low enough that they could be worn every day. …needless to say, I’m seriously contemplating these babies.
