If you’re like me, you’ve fought the booty trend for the past year or so and have failed to take the leap. I mean, they just look funny. It’s like someone took a riding boot and hacked it off at the ankles. Ick.
However, in my attempt to be more open-minded and continue to invest wisely in my professional wardrobe, I think this is the pair that will have me taking the just-above-ankle-high plunge. What I like about them is that they resemble traditional boots in shape, but are definitely still a booty. They’re like a transition boot for naysayers like me.
I’ve visited this pair online for the past five days and it has slowly grown on me. I trust the brand (Sperry). I like that they aren’t synthetic. I like that they’d be cute with leggings at work or with jeans at home (if I ever get out of pjs on the weekend). They’re $89.90 shipped from Nordstrom, which beats Sperry’s own price of $99.99.
I found this deal on my daily email from bradsdeals.com, which I highly recommend to any bargain shoppers. I’ve seen top brands, such as Ugg and FitBit, highly discounted and 100-percent genuine.
For those of you hoping for deals for your kiddos, keep checking back as I countdown to Gymboree’s January Gymbucks redemption. If you’re a rewards member, you get early bird access on January 14. If not, January 15 is your day. What are Gymbucks? Look for a future post or comment here and I’ll explain. They’ve fully clothed my children for the past five years — without breaking my less-than-$10-per-item rule! 🙂
