Oh yeah baby, I found another pair of boots that fit over these calves! I will be doing a full review very soon, but do know that they are the “Maryland” from Ros Hommerson; they are from Wide Widths, a Web site that offers a fantastic selection of wide calf boots (and also offers amazing customer service!). Anyway, they are a bit tall for me and I am wondering if a cobbler may be able to hack an inch off the top so they would fit right and be a more flattering height on my leg. Hrm…
So this is me in my purple print tunic/dress from Ann Taylor Loft, my new black boots, silver necklace from Ralph Lauren and cute silver earrings I got this summer at Treehouse, a store in Rehoboth Beach.
Hair is second day, all I did was brush out any bedhead. Makeup is Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, Estee Lauder Nutritious foundation in Intensity 3.0, CARGO Matte BeachBlush in Tenerife, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis, Benefit lipstick in Bouquet Dive, Avon Ultra Luxury eye liner in Black and Cover Girl LashBlast mascara.
FYI, I probbaly won't post tomorrow because I will have to be at work at 6am. I KNOW! But hey, the weekend is right around the corner!!! 🙂

The colors are very good on you. Oh and cobblers can do amazing things, so you should definitely ask! There’s no reason to not have the perfect boot if it’s attainable. I’ve also found my shoe repair guys to be verey reasonably priced.
everytime i try on dresses that look like yours i feel like i’m wearing a mumuu…but you ROCK IT!!!
I have wide calves too, so I imagine it must be exciting to have boots that are a little TOO wide!
Are they really too tall, or is it only that they don’t taper in enough at the top? It looks like they hit you at a good height, but the most telling thing is how comfortable they are when you bend your legs or sit down.
I remember seeing someone who recently got her boots tailored this way… Ah, there it is: http://youlookfab.com/welookfab/topic/my-tailored-boots-are-back-from-the-cobbler
Love that dress from Ann Taylor Loft! And the boots are perfect for it for fall/winter.
I love you, but this is not a great look.It makes you look what you probably aren’t – a little dumpy.
Great colors, great look.
thankyou SO much for posting about these boots! i also have larger calves + have had such a hard time finding boots to fit. i pouted all through last winter since i didnt have boots, and i SO wanted to rock the boot look! i may be purchasing these myself!
My legs are freakishly huge because I walked on my toes as a kid. This really built up not only my calves but my ankles and makes purchasing boots nearly impossible. Then once I find a pair that DOES fit, they usually don’t look flattering (my husband says my tan Bern boots from Duo make me look like Forrest Gump as a kid).
I have found that very sleek styles and feminine heels counteract the giant legs. A pointy heel always elongates. And I found these surpringly comfortable – I wasn’t dreaming of when I could take these off at the end of the day.
I may invest in some insoles, but these boots have a moisture-wicking lining and a stretch gusset which makes them comfy as the day moves on and legs/feet naturally swell. Well made and I believe worth the money. And if they don’t work, Wide Widths has a great return/customer service policy. In fact, they are great to discuss styles with to ensure you pick the right style out the first time. 🙂

I love those boots. I have HUUUUUGE calves and would love to wear boots, but I fear I’d look sausage casings. But yours look so nice. Hmmm…
I love this! You look great, and the boots are cute!
Woot woo! Look at you! I love the whole look. It’s sassy yet totally work appropriate.
