I’ve got big calves and I cannot lie

I hope you can figure out the song above 🙂  I have been on a search for a good pair of black boots all winter with no luck.  I have big calves and it’s hard to find boots that I can tuck jeans into.  I had pretty much given up on black boots.  Until I ran into these at Kohl’s the other day.

What did I do?  I bought boots that are a size too small but look great, fit over my jeans and came to $9 with my coupon!  Moral of the story……if the shoe doesn’t fit but it’s a great buy, you deal with sore feet.  We will see if I feel the same way next winter, after wearing the boots a few times.
