The Boots Were Made For …

You wouldn’t call your life Dilbertian.

But your wardrobe is quickly heading down the anonymous-drone path: black skirt suit, cream blouse, black heels. Mixing it up wouldn’t be the worst thing.

Why not start at the bottom with a pair of nifty button-up boots from Miz Mooz? The round-toed kicks have a Victorian-meets-badass vibe that will spruce up any outfit: Buttons parade up the side, providing a decorative touch, but the zippers make them easy to put on.

The heel is a fashionably low, so they are good for walking. Plus, the boots are lined in leather and have a cushioned insole to make your feet extra comf. Before you know it, you’ll be swapping that suit for some colorful separates and that trig hairdo for something a little more adventurous.

Though there’s no rush. Change happens gradually, after all.

One cubicle at a time.
