I said they will be mine. And they are.

Remember the things I said I need for London? Well, I did get a trench coat but not that trench coat and we have lots of umbrellas, but I still needed the boots. I went to have lunch with Mike the other day and we walked quite a bit to get to the lunch place. It was raining and my Nikes were soaked within 5 minutes. The rest of the day I felt gross and decided that AS GOD AS MY WITNESS I WOULD NEVER HAVE WET FEET AGAIN!!!!! That day I went and tried my beloved Hunter pink rain boots on in a department store. What I really like about these boots vs. every other pair of wellies is that they have arch support and fit your foot like a pair of shoes not just like rubber sacks.  But, they were going to be 55 pounds. And I am cheap so that made me nervous. When I tried them on, they came up too high and kept hitting me in the back of the knee. Stupid short legs keeping me from my beautiful boots. I went home defeated fearing a long winter of wet feet, and had a brain storm. Kid’s boots. Sure enough they had pink Hunter boots for kids that look identical except they are a little shorter. I went and tried them on this week and they are perfect. Best part? Only 20 pounds. So I saved 35 pounds and got a better fitting product. So, to celebrate my savvy thriftiness, I bought a purse.
