*The* boots

I returned the black boots because I finally acknowledged that they didn't fit. I took a different shopping companion, had a different sales associate, and came home with ones I'm (finally) really happy with! 

It's been a long time since I had rounded toe footwear, but I really like it on these, it makes them more feminine, I think.

I hadn't considered a color like this (the brand calls it "tan," but it doesn't exactly seem that to me; putty? taupe?), but I think it'll be versatile, and then when I get another (ha!) pair of non-Western boots, they'll still fill different roles. I'm hoping the light color will help me pull off the mid-calf height with a skirt, too, eventually.

I can't wait for the weather to cool off so I can really start wearing these!

    I find a round toe peeking from underneath a bootcut jean adorable, they look almost like a brogue from above.

    Ooh! I like these even better than the others. I'm also partial to brown for western boots.

    This time it was down to these and some brown ones, but I didn't like the exact color brown (picky, picky) of the other ones.

    I like these better. I do think they look more feminine, and if they fit better they is the most important thing. You look happy in them!

    If the color of the boots on you is accurate, I really like it, even more than the one in the find photo. And it's good to be picky!

    Oh yay! I like them a lot. And am jealous of the colour; I'm always on the lookout for leather in that shade and never seem to find it. I think it'll bookend your hair well! And so agree that round toes are nice and feminine. :)

    Yay!  They look terrific - and like Eva said - they're the perfect color to bookend your light hair.  I think I have a pair of round toed boots, about that shape.  Now I want to dig them out.  But I won't wear them until it's cooler - I'm only wearing Birks until I can't wear them without socks anymore :)

    Your hard work shopping has paid off!  (So has mine - I'm about to take pics and post evidence)
