One of the best things about Fall & Winter are the boots, don’t you agree? Finding the right pair is nearly impossible for me. If they are knee high they are way too big around my calves, but if they are ‘over-the-knee’ they never quite making it there. I am 5’11, so I need the shaft to be at least 23-25 inches. Today I am going to talk about the former problem, or rather the solution.

Have you heard of Skinny Calf? The founder was tired of not being able to find boots that fit her legs, so the website was created. I am so grateful for it! My calves fit snug as a bug in a rug in these boots! Skinny Calf releases new boots all the time to keep up with the trends. The boots I am wearing here also come in brown, but there are many more designs available on the website.
I have always been skinny. I know you are rolling your eyes, but my middle school days were a nightmare. I was bullied so bad that my parents had to move me to a different school. I was called sticks. One of the ‘popular’ girls told the entire school that I stuffed my bra. The school was very small, so word got around fast. I had my very first boyfriend at the time (or what you would call a boyfriend when you were in 5th grade) and he broke up with me in a note that read, ‘Just sitting here learning about history, and baby, your’e history’. It is actually pretty comical when I think about it now. It was hard for me to find clothes that fit. My jeans would be long enough and then I would be flooding a week later.
I don’t really have that problem anymore. Stores have come pretty far since then. I can find jeans that fit and now, thanks to Skinny Calf, I have another place I can shop for boots.
I guess I told you the story because I didn’t want you to think I was whining about being skinny. I love being skinny and know I am blessed. But it took me until after high school to feel that way. I think we have all had things we have struggle with and have overcome.
