My son’s wedding was a lovely occasion – a happy time – and I had to make several promises to my son regarding the garb I would or would not wear. I had to promise him that I would not wear my Timberland boots to his wedding.
My shoe attire cannot include heels anymore, my knees have both been replaced and one of them has a knee revision where the replacement came loose. My Timberland’s would have been perfect. So comfortable, warm, great support to feet and ankles, rather nice looking – well I think anyway.
I sent him the picture of my shoe selection to wear with my dress outfit. His response was – “you are not wearing Timberland boots to my wedding”. Sure, I was disappointed, but I understood. Now, it was time to delve into shoes that I could actually wear – that matched my outfit.
I am no fashion diva – I dress for comfort. Long skirts, a nice sweater (or t-shirt) and long scarf – with my Timberland boots are my style, and they work well for me. Many have told me that I am the only one that can “pull off” some of the fashion exhibits that I wear. To me, its a compliment.
I love my son – so I had to put the Timberlands back in the closet and head to a department store for “dressy” and uncomfortable shoes.
Surely, I could bear horribly tight and uncomfortable shoes for a few hours.
I also have a pair of Timberlands in pink, those are my favorite.
