This was the first time I hauled out the perforated boots this summer, and I was immediately reminded that they tickle. OK, the boots themselves don’t tickle, but the feeling of a screened breeze hitting the calves feels surprisingly tickly.

Something about oversized houndstooth just makes me happy. read more
