A bargain to boot!

At the mall this weekend, my sister and I spotted/ stalked this super stylish girl wearing cuffed jeans, a belted cardigan over a T-shirt and these amazing, sturdy boots. These boots were serious -- like a sleeker version of the bulky Doc Martins we had to wear at my all-girls', Catholic high school crossed with something out of Wyatt Earp's closet. 

I would have never picked them off a shelf, but this girl's outfit made me reconsider. I wanted to snap a picture of her, but I figured our stares were creepy enough.

Sis and I stopped into a couple stores looking for something similar and struck gold at Nine West

Though our muse wore a lace-up version, these were close enough. The only problem? Duh. The price tag.

$109.99. Ouch.

The saleswoman scurried over, smiling and congratulating us because "They're 30 percent off!"

Now we were talking $75. Thanks, but not good enough. We moseyed on, tried a few more but left the mall empty handed. 

BUT WAIT. No shopping day is complete without an obligatory swing through Tar-jay. And sure enough, mama Target delivered.

$39.99.

Yes, please!

Now the challenge is pairing these babies with more feminine items, like our style obsession did at the mall. I'm thinking skinny cords with a loose blouse. Or maybe a dress with tights. Any ideas?
