L'Occitane goodies

I stopped in L'Occitane yesterday to pick up my free hand cream. I received five emails this week about picking up my hand cream, and I was like, ok, enough is enough...jeez, I'll go pick it up! Anyway, I picked up the cream, and I really like it. I also got the lip balm, which I absolutely love. I am always obsessed with lip balm with fall and winter roll around.

How To/Where To Shop For Wide Calf Boots

 How to shop for wide calf boots:
  • Measure the widest part of the calf. (Measure both legs to help get an accurate size.)
  • Also, note whether or not you have wide width feet too. 
  • When shopping, always be aware of the different between wide width and wide calf. Wide width refers to the foot, and wide calf refers to the leg.
  • When checking websites ALWAYS look for size measurement descriptions or size charts to help determine if the boot will fit you.
  • Before going to the store, check online to see what wide calf boots they have available, and what sizes they fit. This can save some frustration if you know ahead of time what will fit and what won't.
 OR Try these ideas:
  • Some sites sell extra wide and super wide calf boots.
  • If you still have no luck, you may want to try getting a custom made pair of boots to fit you perfectly. These may be pricier, but they are sure to fit like glove.
  • A more affordable option for custom made boots may be purchasing a pair of boots that you like and having extra panels or elastic/stretchy panels sewn into the boot so that it will fit
