Fall Wishlist, part 6 of a well-edited 32
Thursday, October 02, 2008
It's been a while since I've listed some of my fall wants, but now that the weather has officially turned (my first fall in years! such exciting times for my sweater collection!), I'm back on the hunt. Here's one I've already purchased—LL Bean's classic Maine hunting boot, with a nearly knee-high 16" rise. (One caveat: Don't lace these things on unless you're ready to wear them for awhile. It's a serious effort. And no, you will not be able to pull your leggings on over them. Because I have tried. And it wasn't pretty.) Us large-footed gals don't get many breaks, but these shoes are one of them: Because they're made only for men, they start in a men's size 7 (which, given their oversized tendencies, is the size I ordered for my women's 10 feet). I'm not giving up my wellies completely, but think this will be a great, preppy-rugged alternative on blustery, cold days.
