Sometimes I like to dress up like Boy George and sit around in my Mom's backyard...kidding. Mostly. I'm pretty excited to debut my new (but old) Paul Smith boots. I found them in Secondi and I only needed to have them on for about one full minute before I knew they had to be mine. Allll minnne.
I don't know if the previous owner broke them in so perfectly or if this particular style comes this way, but I love these shoes. The leather is buttery soft and they feel like I've been wearing them for years.
These magical boots and my grey jeans were a go-to uniform over the holidays when every day was a basically the weekend. I was pretty jazzed to have also found the brown bag on the same Secondi trip.
When I got dressed this weekend, I was still under the spell of Kelly Framel's recent series on 10 Crosby Derek Lam's Liz Giardina and her signature oversize jewelry, so I pawed through my mom's rings and made off with her silver! (GET IT?)

Shop the look (fairly):
These Fortress of Inca shoes below would also fit the bill, and all Fortress of Inca shoes are handmade in Peru under fair labor standards (1 and 2).
