...Miniskirts in summer: Perfect. Miniskirts in summer with boots: Not so much.
Maybe they're not so crazy, and it's just the fact that the streets of New York are extra gritty in the summer and they're protecting their pedicures. Maybe they have yet to paint their toes...Maybe they thought it was going to rain, or had to walk from midtown to Battery Park on a Tuesday evening only to arrive at the wrong end of the park and miss the poetry reading but happen upon a production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night at sundown. Who knows.
I'm just not a fan of the look in summer.
UPDATE: Oh. Maybe this is why.
