I’ve been looking for pale pink cold-weather boots and hi-top sneakers for years. Along with white, blush footwear is a wardrobe essential for my style. I haven’t found the right hi-top sneakers yet, but I have found the boots. They are Frye’s Billy Inside Zip Bootie that I got on Amazon for half the price.Suede & Nubuck Protector to help them stay clean and repel water. Third, I’ll wear them less frequently, and definitely not in the rain. Plus, I’ll keep looking for a pair of workhorse blush hi-top sneakers to do the dirty work.
As much as I advocate a practical-for-you wardrobe that you wear with joy, meets your needs, don’t save for good, and goes the distance — we’re allowed a few impractical purchases too. The occasional impractical purchase can be therapeutic and make fashion and style more fun. Wardrobe items do not need to achieve workhorse status to be winners. It can be special to save some items for good.
