These Boots Were Made For Walkin'

These boots were made for walkin'
And that's just what they'll do.
And one of these days these boots
are gonna walk all over you...
(are you singing along with this???)

Actually, what I want to walk all over is the floor of my house. 
But it is under re-construction and the main level is chaos.
I know what it's like to live in a beehive, and honey it is NOT the bee's knees.
For weeks I have had people swarming my house before 8am.  
It's practically given me hives as I comb through trying to find things.
(OK, I'm done with the bee thing)

We are adding on to our house in preparation for MIL moving in.  It is interesting getting Spouse and 4 kids out the door and get ready for work with all these people in and around my house.  
Decorating for Christmas became futile and has come to a stop because everything was getting dusty and such.  I also have to be real careful getting ready in the morning so I don't run into a worker with nothing but a towel on (I don't know who was more embarrassed).  LOL

Spouse says I'm a Trooper. 
Yeah, maybe a Storm Trooper!
Then its just moving MIL into the house and getting ready for Christmas and...

I need a new pair of boots.  And I decided that I deserved them.
It's Stress therapy 101-Go shopping
And wear your favorite color green with your favorite necklace and you will smile through it all.
This cardi is great except that the cute little slit pockets have gold sequins......on the inside!
I am going to have to "mod" it this weekend so you can actually see the coolness.
Why would you put the *bling* on the INSIDE of the pocket??
C'mon designers.  I'm going to have to fix this sometime.

I look like "Lise the Peg Leg Pirate". ha

Boots: Target   Boots   And they are on sale right now! (They are real leather and so wonderful)
Leggings:  Macy's - I.N.C
Cardi:  Loft
Tank:  Loft
Necklace:  Loft

Check out theses BOOTS!  sweet.
Buckles up top and down low.  Just like in the J. Crew catalog
Here are the ones from J.Crew.

They are $268 and the Target ones are only $34.99 right now!

I stuck this one in from yesterday because it looks like there are balls orbiting my head. This is what happens when I am thinking, no light bulb goes off, but little balls orbit my head.
Hey, don't forget to come back and invite your friends.
Monday we are excited because we have a really cool guest blogger.
Really cool.  I can't wait.


  1. I looooove the purple and green together!

    And what's with the sequins on the inside?! I'm glad you're crafty enough to fix that - I'm not at all!

  2. Little balls orbit your head?! LMAO!!

  3. Hey Melissa! I HOPE I am crafty enough. Sometimes my hands have a hard time communicating whats in my head. lol But I figure if I wreck it I can just sew the slits closed and noooo one will know. :)

  4. Hi guys...purple & of my favorite color combos and the boots are fierce...that's been my word the last two days...really they are great! Have a wonderful weekend even if the house is in chaos!

  5. I can't believe those boots are from Target....awesome!

  6. I love those boots! I also love the peg leg pirate pose. I break that one out myself from time to time!

  7. Pam: Thanks! I will have a good weekend and like Joy says, I don't really mind chaos. By the way, I may steal your new word "fierce"...I like it.

    Ashley: I know! I was so wanting the J Crew boots and then saw these at Target and was so excited. They fit really nicely and the price was too good to pass up.

    Kinsey: LOL! I am going to be on the look-out for your pirate poses matey! I look so silly so I need to find a new pose.

  8. I want a TARGET!! The nearest Target is an hour away and I'm embarrassingly jealous of all the great things everyone gets from there. Leather boots for $35?!?! It's madness, I tell you! The outfit suits you to a tee! Gorgeous! I'm curious, How do you get those balls to stay in place over your head? :) ~Serene BTW, NOW a follower, I was wondering why I never sawyou guys on my blogger feed!

  9. You don't have a Target?! OMG! I can't even fathom that! Actually, I'm 30 minutes from our's. I'm 30 minutes from everything. I live in the sho nuff country! LOL

  10. Serene!!! Thanks for following! I didn't get these in the store either because they don't have a big selection. These were ordered online and I think if you have over $50 it is free shipping. You would look great in these boots!

  11. I love these boots and the green with pink is great!!!!!!!!!

  12. Reva: Thanks. Is it because I am an 80's girl? Do you remember that whole pink and green thing?
    Luv ya Reva!

  13. I love that necklace. Statement pieces like that can add so much to outfits!

  14. Lise--that last photo made me laugh out loud! I'm liking the pink tank. And I can commiserate with the work going on. I'm about to get new flooring in the master bedroom, but luckily the only workmen in my space would be my husband and his oldest son.

  15. I love those boots and let me just say they look nothing like the website pic over on the Target website. I would seriously consider them after seeing them on you.
    Bling that you can't see??? What's the point in that?

  16. Sarah: I glad you like the necklace. I had it on and off and on...The boots were more like biker boots and maybe didn't really go with the necklace. But in the end, it just felt good so I wore it.

    Terri: Yay for new flooring! And you are so lucky to have a Spouse and son who can do that. And they will probably have fun together!

    Silvergirl: We see eye to eye! There is no point in hidden bling. You are right about the pic. of the boots from Target. But they are cute in real like. Did you know I love your hair??? You and Joy rock!

  17. yay for bargain hunting! those boots do look like the j.crew ones. they look great!

  18. Thanks Ashley! I was suprised how much they are look alike boots. And with the $$ I saved, I can do some MORE shopping.

  19. WOW!!! LOVE your new boots. What a bargain from Target and real leather? Wow!
    You and Joy can visit me and we'll go thrifting together. Thanks for your kind comment!
