A refreshed layout, and a minor fashion miracle

I'm excited to present my new blog layout, designed by the wonderful Laura of The Blog of Worldly Delights. A second glance was sorely in need of a refresh, and I'm super grateful to Laura for helping me bring my ideas to life.

This week was also home to a minor fashion miracle - after something like five years, I found a pair of boots to fit my narrow calves. Hallelujah! I'd even tried and failed with an online order from a UK company that specializes in narrow calf boots. That pair fit through the calves, but was way too wide in the ankle.

The model I finally landed on was the Blondo Verga. My winter boots, the Blondo Snowtrails, are by the same Quebec-based company so I already knew the quality would be great. The shaft is elasticized waterproof rubber and the boot portion is a beautiful leather with a sturdy rubber sole. Good for Canadian weather! My only quibble is that the  inside back of one boot's been rubbing against my ankle; I'm going to try adding some cushioning.
