My New Obsession: Combat Boots

When I was in junior high I went through a serious Doc Marten phase. I had a flowered pair, a pair covered in glitter, and of course, the double strap mary janes. But the phase eventually passed and I haven’t thought a lot about combat boots since then. That all changed when I saw this picture on Pinterest last week:

Even though my brain is like, “This girl’s thighs are the circumference of your forearms,” my heart is all, “YOU WILL TOTALLY LOOK LIKE THAT IF YOU WEAR COMBAT BOOTS.”

I found a ton of inexpensive options online, so at least if they make me look like Lieutenant Stubby Legs I won’t be out much money.

I really like number 2 because of that little pocket. My coworker pointed out that since jeans and purses and jackets all have pockets I probably don’t need them on my shoes, but then I was like but if I get mugged and the thief tells me to empty my pockets I can be all, “sorry I don’t have any money” and they will believe me because my cash is HIDDEN IN MY SHOE. I’m choosing to believe she responded with a blank stare because I blew her mind with my shoe pocket logic and not because she thinks I’m an idiot.

And because I like you, here are some pretty fall outfits involving combat boots:

    I always liked combat boots too which my mom thought was a clue into my sexuality and wouldn’t let me near them in case it turned me lesbian.

    #4 are my favorite. Also Rachel Bilson. (Speaking of my lesbianism.)
