I Can't Believe I'm Doing This

You all are insufferable. I tell a simple story about some ill-purchased boots, and you just hound away until I crumble, forcing me to post pictures of myself wearing the boots.

It's all your fault.

All 3 of you who asked -- no -- FORCED me to give picture evidence of my fashion blunder. So here it is. Don't say I didn't warn you, though: it ain't pretty. If you tell me these boots look good on me, I just plain won't believe it. This isn't the sort of thing I can pull off. I felt mildly goofy in private, and then when I wore them in public (!) it escalated to severe irritation.

The tight pants required to wear the boots with were fresh from the incredible clothing-shrinker, aka: dryer, forcing me into an unflattering pear or apple or gourd or whatever shape fruit it is that people don't want to be associated with.

My helpful husband was all too willing to be the photographer for the occasion. First, he wanted to pose me all perfect and sweet. Instead he got me scowling because I did NOT want to be in a sweet, perfect pose.




Then, he persisted with a glamour-shots-like pose anyway, which I could at least laugh along with.




Finally, we worked on accentuating the fruity shape of my body in the most unflattering way available.



But his best idea, by far, was the leprechaun kick. Are you ready for this action?




Sometimes I frighten myself.

  1. Sure, you look like an apple. A TINY apple. Geez, woman.

    You look good! Believe it. (And they look really, really comfortable.)

    If anything, you can do a leprechaun kick and that TOTALLY counts for something.

  2. Ha! Love the kick! You got some serious air!

    I think you look cute in them, but not owning a pair myself, I'm sure I would feel just as silly. Although about 75% of the female population seems to own them now... you should be able to just blend right into the crowd!

    I may be 25 but I'm not hip... but I do have EYES and my eyes say they are cute!

  6. I would totally wear them and look like a much less flattering piece of fruit.

    Awesome leprechaun kick! (I admit I had to copy your post to spell that correctly.)

  9. Okay, I no longer like you...one because I am SUPER jealous of your AWESOME leprechaun kick-Travis would be proud ha ha. And those boots look great, I dont know what you're talking about, and the only shape you are is beautiful so just wear you're boots and feel it. Okay, I'm just kidding, I still like you. You do however look great, so believe it!

  14. Oh Sarah! You look FINE. I wouldn't think about it twice if I saw you out wearing this outfit. (Well, I might think about it twice, but my second thoughts would be more like, "Wow! There's my famous boot-wearing, blogging friend Sarah! I'm so excited!"

    Anyway, I'm trying to think about this from your perspective and all I can come up with is this: do you think you'd like the boots more with something chunkier on top? Like maybe a coat/scarf or a heavy sweater. The shirt you're wearing is cute, pretty and light and airy, and you have such long, slender legs (lucky you), I can *sort of* see why you think the heavy boots look odd all the way down there at the bottom. I think what you're wearing would look better with a cute pair of heels and the boots would look better with something more wintery on top. At any rate, the they look great on you. You're not ridiculous at all and you have a FANTASTIC figure. I say, wear them and don't worry!

  15. Fabulous poses, and leggings under a favorite sweater might make you feel self-concious.

    That said; even in jeans I truly think you look great and should live it up and dare anyone to say differently!!

  16. Hahaha!!! Yep, the leprechaun jump was definitely the best.

  18. That kick was the best! Also, I love that I'm not the only one that has problems trying to implement the trend. For the record, I think you look fine in them. At any rate, you look like everyone else that wears them! :)

  19. They do too look cute! And there is NO WAY you are shaped like any sort of fruit!!

  20. Fruity shape of your body, whatEVER! You look great. But I probably wouldn't wear the boots either :)

  23. I think they look great! That said, I'm terrified of fashion myself - if I wear anything other than plain, plain, plain stuff (solid t-shirts with jeans or black pants) I feel like I am the most obvious person in the room. So I get how you feel, but really, they look good on you!

Hmm...And how did that make you FEEL?
