At work, I typically eat lunch around 11 unless I have errands to run (errands, shopping, whatevs). Today I ran to Michaels and Goodwill in search of brown shoestrings (didn’t find any. Poopers.) and was starving by the time I got back to work. To add to my torture, I drove by a Chinese restaurant with my windows down and I could smell the yummy goodness. My stomach practically jumped out and grabbed the wheel saying, “Screw your ‘healthy lifestyle’! I’m getting me an egg roll!” I was impressed that my stomach could in fact, drive, but also made the quotation gesture in the air for "healthy lifestyle" with its various…tubes…

Enough of that stuff. As disgusting as that visual is, I’m getting hungry again.

Today I’m test-driving a pair of knee high boots. I’ve never owned a pair since my calves are like tree trunks and I’m hard to fit, but I found some at Target and DSW that have stretch to them. They look really cute with this brown and blue skirt I have but I wanted to give them a go under some pants before I wore them in front of everyone. I’ve had to pull them up a few times today and I do have some “slouchage”.

Excuse my dirty mirror.

So what do you think? Are they supposed to look like that? My fiance says yes, but I'd like a female opinion if I can get one.

PS> Word to the wise. Shave before you wear stretchy boots like this. Every time I pulled them up the fabric caught every little stub of hair I had. It was like a thousand tiny needles poking me in some sort of bizarre torture. I'll never talk Goldfinger!

I totally dig those boots. In fact, all day I was like, "I should go get some boots like that."
But yes, usually with knee high boots there is a bit of the crinkling. Your fiancee is a wise man, plus he has three sisters. He knows these things.

Omg! I have the same problem with boots and I bought my black pair at Target too. I love them. Totally stretchy and perfect for the cold weather to keep my leggies warm in the wintertime. (Socal wintertime anyway.)
