Was This Really Necessary?

(No, not taking a dozen of pictures of my feet.  That was very necessary.)

But did I really need to replace the Swedish Hasbeens* I never wore with their garish cousins?

Answer: yes.

My reasons: The first pair was always just a smidge too tight.**  And even though these are a technically a less versatile color, I love them so much that I find myself inventing outfits around them.  Plus you would be amazed at how many people get a kick out of lime green clog boots (what, like they are unusual or something?) and want to chat about them.  I usually stick to sensible neutrals, but these have made me realize that it's good to really go for the gusto every once in awhile.

*My Laws of General Economy buyer has mysteriously disappeared, so if anyone would like to buy a pair of size 39 high jodhpur boots, let me know.
**If you are thinking of buying a pair, I'd recommend going up a size from the chart on the Swedish Hasbeens website (i.e. A 9 should buy a 40 rather than a 39).
