There's this funny thing I do where I'm always in search of the PERFECT something-or-other, and my list of specifications as to what will make that something-or-other actually perfect grows so exponentially long, that I end up creating this imaginary object in my brain that I'm never EVER going to find. I did that when searching for a coat for this season, and then quickly realized that we're practically half way through winter and I was still sans coat. I made it my mission to find a coat (any coat) this past weekend only to find that, surprise surprise, no one is even selling coats anymore. Hopefully this new Old Navy sweater coat I'm now sporting will cut it through this frigid Oakland winter.
I've been doing this funny thing with boots for, I don't know, multiple years now. I am not a boots person. It's definitely not that I don't like boots... it's more that whenever I try a pair on, I look like somewhat of an idiot. So, I've spent an absurd amount of time browsing through the interwebs and searching through Pinterest board after Pinterest board to find what I would consider the perfect boots for me. The good news? I finally found them. The bad news? They are no longer available. The other bad news? Not even in my WILDEST dreams could I ever afford them. And so my stupid search continues.
