Weekly Favorite: Winter Boots

These are my favorites. I call them my…

Go-To Black Winter Shoe Boots!

I first bought these way back in 2006, on a December afternoon in the beloved Nordstrom’s shoe department. In shoe years, seven years is a long time! They are a great basic. Not only are they comfortable, but they look great with jeans or tights and skirts.

I mostly wear them when I travel, since they are easy to slip on and off. They have a stacked heel, but the platform in front makes them wearable on long days. Plus, since they’re leather, they are much easier to care for than suede (although I love suede). I get them professionally cleaned every few years, to keep the leather nice, and I’m about to have them resoled for the second time.

Shoe care, ladies! It’s more essential than you think.DSC_0261

As I said, they were a Nordstrom’s find. I love Nordstrom’s for shoes and highly recommend you go there for your stylish winter boot needs. I like their selection, service, and price range. You can find shoes that are really affordable, and ones that are seriously high end. But I must say, if you’re looking for really fancy, top tier brand shoes, head over to Neiman Marcus or Sak’s instead (better selection).

I love my little Go To Black Winter Shoe Boots. What are your favorite pair to pull out once the weather gets cold? Luckily I live in Austin, so my winter boots are these cute ones, instead of real snow boots!

Happy shoe shopping!

Spiritual Friday: Puppy Love

For this week’s Spiritual Friday, I thought I would share something that has turned out to be one of the best parts of my life. I guess that is how it goes, isn’t it? The craziest things are usually great things.

I am referring to my shelter dog Mandy, of course!

Mandy has the sweetness of a hound and the speed of a sheep dog, although I can’t be sure of her exact breed.

I do know that she is a little crazy girl. Here is Mandy around my house.

Whether she’s relaxing in bed or watching the kids walk home from school, Mandy does things all the way. She keeps my life exciting and full of joy. What keeps your life joyous?

Have a wonderful weekend.
