A Good Guess

Sweater- Joe Fresh
Shirt- Gift
Jeans- Gap
Boots- Gift (Aldo)

To make up (to Brody) for wearing these boots with my maxi skirt, I wore them with my jeans today. 
Almost two months ago I was browsing on Aldo's website, looking for these boots because I had fallen in love with them in the store.  I was thrilled to find that they were on sale!!  It was very tempting to buy them, but was participating in the 30 for 30 challenge.  Instead of buying them I did the next best thing....printed off the page with these boots on it, highlighted the colour I wanted and my size (I also did this for two other pairs I was in love with) and gave them to Brody as part of my Christmas wish list.

The 30 for 30 challenge ended, and I really wanted to buy them...I made many comments about my love of these boots to Brody, but I decided not to buy them for myself because #1 Christmas was coming and #2 I knew I could live without them (but just barely).  I didn't think Brody would actually buy them for me.  Christmas morning I was handed a gift that looked a lot like a wrapped Aldo (boot) shoe box  (yes apparently I'm quite farmiliar with the size and shape of Aldo shoe boxes...haha).  I confidently announced to everyone that in that box there was going to be a pair of tall brown lace up leather high heeled boots from Aldo.**  Thank goodness I was right!!

**Every year at Christmas Brody inspects his wrapped presents, and most times correctly guesses what they are before opening them....this was payback..haha

Great boots and I think he was right cause the skirt the other day did not do justice to them. Glad he took all your not so subtle hints and bought them for you.
