boot cuffs

Ok, so I know that California winters barely qualify but for us down here, they feel really cold! Especially for this Arizona girl - when I moved here I thought I was moving to the Arctic - well, not quite... but anyway, it gets just cold enough here for us to pull out our sweaters and boots and enjoy a slight change in wardrobe.

My favorite fall/winter item are for sure my boots. I went through a few tall pairs that I never wore due to the fact that I am a girl who loves comfort (hence my huge collection of sweats) and I just needed a cute pair of flat boots. Flat boots are the bomb because you can live in complete comfort while still looking cute!

This year, I'm also wearing leggings far too often so I thought my boots could use another accessory - enter the boot cuff. I am kinda obsessed with them.  They peek just above the boot and add just the right amount of whimsy to an outfit. And the fact that I can crochet them myself?? Score.

I'm making several pairs for some friends so if you are interested in a pair of your own, email me!!  Or leave a comment below!
