As a kid, my Friday nights consisted of hours at the SVdP gym playing sports, watching games, keeping scoreboard, and working at the snackbar. After the games, all of the families would head to Round Table Pizza on North Point and Laguna and order tons of pizza and the parents would order pitchers of beer. It was our tradition and happened every Friday for over 10 years. While the parents were drinking and laughing, the kids would go over to the Marina Safeway and play Super Market Sweep.
I have so many memories from those nights and oddly enough, most of them stem from the jukebox. It was the best jukebox ever. My sister Claire recently told me that she first fell in love with Celine Dion because of that jukebox. One memory that stands out in particular was one night when one of the moms put on Nancy Sinatra "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" and proceeded to do cheerleading moves and kick her leg above the head of the snackbar manager. We were all in tears from laughing so hard!!!
So whenever I think about boots, Nancy Sinatra comes into my head. Searching for the perfect pairs, I kept listening to the song on repeat. This season there seems to be more of an emphasis on ankle booties rather than knee-high boots like two years ago, just like in Nancy's music video-- fashion really is cyclical. With fall on it's way, it's time to invest in some perfect pairs. I usually go with the classic black leather and brown suede. This year I am hoping to add some patterned ankle boots. With my size 10 foot, I am sure people will think a real cheetah is coming at them!!! If I had to pick a knee-high boot that I would love to add to my closet, it would be this Givenchy pair.
Which perfect pair is your favorite?
These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do,
one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.
