I never went to a school or had a job where I was required to wear a uniform, but the idea really appeals to me. I do try to have some style but I don't like to spend a lot of time considering it each day. I have favorites, pieces I wear again and again and in a way it is a kind of self imposed uniform.
Since my fantasies aren't usually about clothes (they're about housewares instead!), I don't need too many options and usually invest in a few items that might be more expensive but are higher quality and will last. My wardrobe gets tired of me way before I tire of it... and I'm very sentimental so it's always hard to part with a treasured piece.
Some people wear rain boots when it's raining. I wear mine ALL the time. I pretty much go straight from my Hunter boots into sandals. It probably isn't the best support for my feet but at least I'm always prepared for splashing in puddles or braving some mud. I'm very attached but my best pals are kind of biting the dust. The buckles are busted and now I've finally worn a hole clear through the heel which means those puddle splashes are a bit more soggy than I'd like.
So it's time for a new pair of rain boots, and for anyone else this wouldn't be a big deal but I'm a crazy person and every time I try on a new pair I feel bad for my old buddies watching from the sidelines.
Should I buy the same color? It doesn't look the same anymore and I feel like they started making them shinier and I don't know if I even like them... and anyway I think my boots are feeling bad that we're even having this conversation so really a damp heel is no big deal.
Does anybody else do this? Anyone? Yep I'm pretty sure I'm alone here but thanks for reading this love letter to my boots, maybe it will soften the blow when they finally do get the boot (ouch!).
