OK~ I am confused and my recent get-away confirmed the fact that Fall is a difficult time of year to know how to dress. The calendar says Fall, yet the temps are still in the 80's in a large part of the country.
I had the opportunity to spend 10 days in Atlanta, Georgia, and all I can say is, "Wow! Talk about confusion!" It must be the old lady in me that just cannot wear a pair of boots until I really need to. I noticed boots in all shapes and forms when it was 80+ degrees in the great outdoors. My feet get very hot and they would not be comfy in those hot temps. When my feet are not happy, I am not happy.
Mind you, I was not the only person sporting open toed shoes, but I was easily placed into the minority. Boots were much more common than sandal wear.
I know that people in the south have a difficult time trying to understand how us Northerners can wear shorts with a sweatshirt. I am comparing this boot scenario to that. But really, fur lined boots with shorts, in 80 degree temps? This lady does not get it.
I understand the concept of fashion boots. But, fashion boots to this Iowa Mom are worn when it is too cold for shoes. So, I guess if you want to wear boots, you break down and sweat it out in the South. My boots will come out of the closet when they are needed. I will not cram my toes into closed in footwear until absolutely necessary.
And sadly I am now home to 50 degree temps and boot season looks closer than I want it to be. I know there are warmer days ahead in Iowa, yet in all reality, Fall has arrived and I will embrace it!
So, tell me. Are you sporting boots today or another type of shoe? After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
