SO from soccer to cross country to rainy track meets…I trudge a lot. In grass and weeds and mud…or through slick bleachers…😐.
Regardless, looking ugly and being uncomfortable isn’t an option.
I tried some loud pink (fun right?!) Sorel duck looking boots. They ran big (no half sizes) and were such a deal I didn’t bother getting rid of them. Awkward trudging in clown looking shoes. #bozo
I tried Ralph Lauren Polo boots – a friend of mine fished in them so that makes them suitable for trudging…right? Um no. Cute enough to keep but not to trudge.
I tried the traditional pull-on boots – cute but they gave me an odd gait (I’m serious about not having a weird walk – not cute), were hard to get off (side cramp with all the pulling and I have NARROW feet), and oddly hot. I also have thin legs so all the flapping about wasn’t ideal either. No trudging and flapping for me.
I wanted – and purchased at about 75% off via Dillard’s sale(!) -Hunter boots – great brand, great reviews on blogs, more like combat boots, and iconic. I also liked that these are classic colors and lace up – no more side cramps! I can trudge! 😍
- Jeggings, cute socks, tucked/half button up
- Jeggings, cute socks, vneck sweater
- Flares, button up
- Flares, sweater (vneck or dolman/half-tucked)
- Fit leggings, belted tunic, cute socks
- Grey Chaps jeans, cute tucked top (____________?)
Another thing off my list! Lessons learned – be smart, plan, think long term, and you get what you pay for. And most importantly, get what you really want and you spend less overall. 😐
