When something burnt is a good thing...

Don't worry I didn't burn my toast or bagel this morning. Nor did I burn the house down leaving my curling iron on.

I did find something that was burnt last week and it actually gave me a new light. A new light on boots! I am a 100% boot lover and all boots fancy my taste buds. My personal faves: knee high , mid calf, both in 2" or 3" height, flat heeled riding, sheepskin lined. I even like cowboy boots but cannot allow myself to even try them on, let alone purchase a pair...something about cowboy boots just do not = Asian girl wearing them.
Easy black or brown boot options were automatically applied to my wardrobe but became complicated when colored boots became my feast of being a shoe lover this season. I always went for the brown or the black options for boots, so I could alternate through wardrobe easily.
Flats, pumps and sandals in all colors of the Crayola crayon box is absolutely necessary, but I never really let the light shine in on my boots. That is until I met Keshia, who came in the perfect shade of orange...burnt! I was going to a far end of my boots desired list that I've never drifted towards before.
And now I introduce you to the Keshia boot from Bakers as an item I am trying to see "how many different outfits I can match up with this pair of burnt orange boots". The challenge is quite interesting. I figured I had to put it to this test to get the most out of them since they are not so easily throw-on-able boots. My favorite route so far is the tuck in skinny jeans and long shirt option. Casual outfits can give a good show with 2 1/2" colored boots. I encourage finding fun new colors to play with!
