In the early fall I bought a pair of peep-toe booties. Initially I wasn’t really sure that they would “work”, but since I am always ready for a fashion adventure I decided to give them a real shot at becoming a cornerstone of my wardrobe. They have delivered beautifully! I wear them with jeans, long flowing skirts, short skirts, dress pants…I even paired them with a black cocktail dress for a special event. My peep-toe booties are the perfect combination of edgy and functional and comfortable and “not too out there” and heel height. I LOVE them!
Here is my conundrum…It’s the end of November. Winter is coming. I live in a cold climate. Even on the days when the temperature is hovering in the 50s my toes are getting cold. And it’s kind of weird to sport open toes after a certain calendar date. I’ve begun to notice people looking at my feet when I’m standing in line at Starbucks. Are they admiring my shoes or are they thinking that I’m crazy for not completely covering my feet? But I love my peep-toe booties! They have become my go-to footwear. By the time the weather improves enough to wear open toe shoes again we’ll be looking at bright colored sandals and flip-flops.
How long do you think I can wear open-toe booties and not look like a freak?
