This morning the weather decided to be warm and sunny instead! I have some lovely furry boots that I bought years ago in Chicago, but it was far too warm to wear them today. When we moved to Spain five years ago I left several pairs of boots with the local charity shop, counting on it being hot and dry for most of the year over here, which it is - except for the cold and sometimes wet winter months!
My boot wardrobe is limited, partly because of the clear out prior to leaving the UK, and partly because I have difficulty buying boots that are both comfortable and stylish. We do a lot of walking so heels aren't always practical and most of the stylish boots in the shops have heels that are way too high for me. I also find that most knee-high boots are too tall for my short legs.
Flat boots seem to be designed for elderly señoras who only want comfort. I may be an elderly señora, but I like style as well as comfort. Luckily the ankle boots that I am wearing today have a sensible heel so they are fine for walking into town to meet friends, though they are not ideal for doing too much walking around.
I should also have mentioned that I have chubby calves, which again limits my choice when I am looking for higher boots. Imogen mentions the fact that knee-high boots are now available with multiple calf widths. I haven't noticed any in Spain yet, but I will keep my eyes open for a pair as she says that they will make my legs look longer and leaner. Just what I want!
