July and January are the worst months to be financially responsible! I've been doing pretty well, but these boots were too good to pass up - they were 50% off and I was able to talk them down another $50 because they had some scratches. Hehehe! I know they will become a fall/winter staple for me because the two tone design is so versatile. The traditional wingtip detail is updated with geometric cut outs, and the soft nappa leather cuff gives it a casual look. So excited to wear these!
