While chaperoning last weekend I was surprisingly impressed by my students’ attire. I don’t know if it’s where I work or just teenagers in general, but all they wear to school are sweats. I don’t mean jeans and a sweatshirt, I mean leggings and a t-shirt, pajama pants – they look halfway to homeless.
The young men on our trip looked very nice but let’s be honest, men just wear a suit and they’re done. The girls put together some pretty fabulous and sophisticated outfits that I took note of. Two girls in particular were wearing these Steve Madden boots in black:
The boots really look a lot better in person, especially after they’re been broken in a bit. I scoured the internet for them and finally stumbled upon a gently used pair (in my size!!) on eBay. And I bid. And I lost. The boots are from last season so they are gone for good.
So I looked and looked some more and found these from Naturalizer:
What do you think? I like the hardware on these but I’m not crazy about the bottoms or the slightly pebbled look to the leather. I should also point out that grandmas wear Naturalizer. Now I love my grandmas, but we don’t share shoes. Thoughts?
