"Reader" Glasses and Daring Dresses!

  I just bought my first pair of "reader" or magnifying glasses. I have been near-sighted since I was a freshman. I started wearing contact lenses as a sophomore and still do! I now have a +1 added to my contacts to aid in close-up vision. Sometimes this just isn't enough! If I happen to be wearing my glasses, I can take them off and see something close just fine. On the other hand, some things are just too small to see with my contacts. So I now have magnifiers for paper quilling, small print, some crocheting and hand stitching! I am accepting the passage of time, and the addition of years to my age! At the same time, I don't want to dress too old and plain! This fall I found these boots. They are Clarks "Wish Excite". I wear them with leggings or skinny jeans and long blouses and sweaters  every chance I get! Although, we haven't had much of a winter here in south Texas. I also don't dress up for school to teach 4-year-olds.
I recently splurged on these 2 short dresses! I want to stop wearing jeans almost every time I go somewhere! I have black and gray leggings I can wear with them. I want to get some light gray flats for the silvery gray dress.

I found these boots-top photo (Indigo by Clarks "Jordan Brooke" on the Clarks website. I was lucky to find the black boots  at my local JC Pennys. They were having a boot sale, and I decided to look around. I found a pair to try on, but they weren't fitting all that well. I started whining to the clerk about the lack of any Clarks brand boots. She then told me they had some in the back, just not on display! My lucky day. They had my size. I still can't imagine why they would not have had them on display. Did they NOT want to sell them? Back to the lace ups. I REALLY want them. I just hate ordering shoes online. I'm begging for advice!
Would these boots work with the dresses?
Would this color be OK. ? I love the natural look of the color. Plus I already have  a large number of black shoes!
Y'all come back,


  1. Love, love, love the dresses! I think both boots would look great with dresses. The short ones especially with leggings.

  2. Luv the dresses too.

    Everybody is wearing boots with all kinds of outfit....wear them.

    I can't buy online cause I have to try on.

  3. Cute dresses and I love both pair of boots! Wishing you a nice Valentine week!

  4. Isn't it something when you realize you need readers! That happened to me years ago...and now I am going to need regular glasses as well. Getting older is sometimes hard! Love the cute dresses and boots! Not sure they would work together though.

  5. Yep, totally understand the reader thing. I have them all over the house. I'm far-sighted so I can see the tv fine but it has come to the point I have to have readers to even browse through magazines ( my arms are getting shorter all the time!)
    Cute dresses!


Howdy, Thanks for dropping in. I love to hear from you!
