New Shoes

New Shoes by Paolo Nutini

"Woke up cold one Tuesday,
I'm looking tired and feeling quite sick,
I felt like there was something missing in my day to day life,
So I quickly opened the wardrobe,
Pulled out some jeans and a T-Shirt that seemed clean,
Topped it off with a pair of old shoes,
That were ripped around the seams,
And I thought these shoes just don't suit me.

Hey, I put some new shoes on,
And suddenly everything is right,
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on and everybody's smiling,
It so inviting,
Oh, short on money,
But long on time,
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine,
And I'm running late,
And I dont need an excuse,
'cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes.

Woke up late one Thursday,
And I'm seeing stars as I'm rubbing my eyes,
And I felt like there were two days missing,
As I focused all the time,
And I made my way to the kitchen,
But I had to stop from the shock of what I found,
A room full of all my friends dancing round and round,
And I thought hello new shoes,
Byebye them blues.

Take me wondering through these streets,
Where bright lights and angels meet,
Stone to stone they take me on,
I'm walking to the break of dawn."

For the last couple months I've been saving up for these Frye 'Jane 14' Tall Boots. I was completely in love with their gorgeousness after seeing Ree's Pioneer Woman Post - "These Boots Were Made For...Everything. I realized I was missing a good casual pair of boots in my shoe collection and after reading so much praise for these boots I decided they were the one. I saved my cash for this purchase, a different approach for me. I enjoyed the process of saving up for them, deciding that my spare $40 would go towards these boots instead of some impulse buy. I had to exercise a little financial discipline but in the end it was worth every penny.

The boots are made well with very good quality leather. The color is rich and works well with black and brown. I know I will have them for years and years to come. Did I mention they are comfortable too? I haven't spent an entire day walking in them yet but I have been wearing them as often as I can. I love them more each time I wear them.
