312/365: Happy Bench Monday: {These Boots are NOT Made for Walkin'} Edition!

Project 365

Monday • November 8, 2010


I haven't done a Bench Monday in a long time. This is Rachel in Santa Fe, wearing her favorite boots. This was taken on a stone bench (yes ... a real bench this time) ... in the Plaza, the heart of the historic district.


I told her to wear comfortable shoes as we would be doin' a lot of walkin' ... and she said, "Mom; you are going to want to do bench shots so I better wear something cool!" She was right! My girls know me so well! ♥ She also claimed that these boots were comfortable. I didn't believe her for one minute!


Happy Bench Monday!

    Her taste in footwear is impeccable! Comfort is a VERY debatable subject. :D I absolutely love this southwest theme and the jean fray is soo perfect for those boots! HBM!

    My Mom, God rest her soul, had a shoe 'habit'. She would side with Rachel in a heart♥beat. It's amazing how much body language there is in a simple pose. This is really cool HBM! : )

    She ain't lyin'. Some boots I find are more comfortable then sneakers.

    It's not just the boots, but the attitude that goes with them that I like!
  • (sam I am) 4y

    Very cool boots indeed.....although I would probably break my neck in them. I love it when others are concerned about flickr 'welfare'...... I just get a lot of strange looks from my family.

    haha your daughters do know you very well :) those boots could be comfortable - a thicker heel is usually better.
