She Picked Color; He Picked Cognac

She Picked Color; He Picked Cognac


To say that my wardrobe isn’t very colorful is kind of an understatement. I gravitate toward black, various shades of black and patterns that include… black. Oh yeah, and various shades of brown. I have a few shirts that may have color and pattern to them, but for the most part my wardrobe is pretty drab.

It isn’t that I don’t like colors, it is simply that most aren’t flattering for me. The outfits that I have with color are ones I purchased when I lost weight. But since I’m not one to regularly shop for clothes, I pretty much wear what I have until I have a need to purchase something else. At that time, I try to be mindful of adding colors.

As I’ve said before, I have a strong weakness for boots, even going so far as to take boots from an abandoned scarecrow. That’s pathetic, I know. But they were just going to be disposed of; at least I didn’t wait until they were in the dumpster to lay claim to them. Well, Lugz recently asked if we would like to share more products with you. Not only do we love their products, but they usually allow us to give away a pair so how can we resist? And it’s boots. I really don’t need excuses to get boots.

I have a pair of black Lugz Sophia that I seriously wear even in the summer months. They are super comfortable and REALLY cute. I decided to push my personal boundaries this time and get a pair that offered a touch of color to my otherwise neutral, boring attire. Lugz has a new line called Shifter Ballistic and boy, oh boy, do they fit the description of colorful.

Shifter Ballistic boots are available in purple, pink and teal in addition to the traditional brown and black. Despite my normal affinity for neutral, I ordered color. Not just any color. I ordered pink. It’s NOT like me at all.

I paired them with a pair of khaki shorts and a pink shirt and I was good to go. These boots made a definite statement and made me feel less than my mid-40s. Will I wear them all the time? Not a chance. I need to give equal time to the Black Sophia boots, remember. Will I wear them to be fun and festive… and different than normal? Absolutely!

While I was picking a bright color, Scott was soothing himself with Cognac. Not the alcohol. He’s a fan of Lugz, too, and was quite happy to hear his collection would be getting an addition. This time, Arbor Mids in Cognac color. As with the others, Lugz delivered comfort as well as style.

Scott and I continue to become bigger fans of the Lugz brand and encourage you to check out the variety of styles and colors available for the family. Follow Lugz on Facebook and Twitter to learn about their newest lines and latest promotions.

    Bright or practical? My first impulse was “bright” but when I looked down at myself, I’m wearing dark jeans, a navy shirt, and a dark grey hoodie, with black socks and shoes, so I guess I’m in the “practical” group. Looks like I need some “bright” in my life!
