Giveaway: Wide Calf Rain Boots


"I'm singin' in the rain..." Extra Wide Rain Boots c/o Jileon It's already established that I LOVE boots. The only wide calf style I hadn't ever been able to nail down was wellies - rain boots.

Searching for Center


(This was originally going to be a #TransparentTuesday post, but in a miracle of miracles, I got really sleepy at a decent hour and went to bed. It was glorious.) Oh friends. It's been a rough several weeks in this noggin of mine, trying to wrestle with stress, anxiety, depression, negative self talk, obligations, and sheer exhaustion. I will share more when I can (seriously, this vague *ish is for the birds), but for now, I'm just dealing Continue Reading
