Budget-Friendly Boots that fit wider calves and girls with curves! ℅ Lisa Tufano and THINK LIKE A BOSS LADY

Ladies, I have tried on and personally own at least one pair of each of the boots featured above. All but style #4 (which I recently blogged about here) cost just $50 or less, so as you might imagine I went a little crazy this season and snapped up multiple colors and styles.

This is the first time in my life that I’ve owned truly tall boots because it has historically been so difficult to find attractive styles that fit my calves. Each of the boot styles featured above are able to accommodate larger calf muscles up to at least 16″ in circumference. Here’s to rocking style and trends at any size!

Speaking of which, I want to take a moment to highlight the fact that March is officially Women’s History Month. International Women’s Day is this Sunday, March 8th, 2015 and there is a very special event happening this weekend. It’s called the March in March and it was created by the UN Women for Peace Association.

Women’s Rights are Human Rights. But as you read these words, nearly 5 million women and girls are living in slavery, victims of human trafficking. 60 million more are child brides, and 140 million live with the pain of enforced genital mutilation. These are more than just numbers, they are our mothers, sisters, and daughters. The United Nations Women for Peace Association will hold its third annual march to end violence against women on March 8th, 2015.

My friend Therese will be in New York to march, but even if you can’t attend in person you can still join us in the mission to stand up for women around the world.

To show your support for the March in March, you can post a picture or video of your feet walking with the hashtag #iwalk4women on social media.

Dalmatian Satchel and Raisin Lipstick

So it’s February which means it’s technically winter time here in the States, but I haven’t been super inspired to post cold-weather outfits lately because we’ve been having unseasonably warm weather here in Los Angeles. And by unseasonably warm, I am talking in the low 80s. So while I realize that anyone getting pummeled by the various blizzards on the east coast will understandably have no sympathy for my situation, I’ve been waiting for things to cool off again so I could gear up in my corduroy and tweed and wool.

While I enjoy dressing up, I don’t particularly enjoy suffering for fashion. My motto? Keep it budget friendly, and wearable for more than an hour.

“Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn’t fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and people go. But it’s comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away.”

- Carrie Bradshaw, Sex & the City

Find Your Flow in 2015 with Mahilani Akiona

Mahilani Akiona Guest Blog for THINK LIKE A BOSS LADY, created by Lisa Tufano

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again and again: I have been really lucky to meet amazingly adventurous and ambitious women. I can’t help but think that we get drawn together by magnetic boss lady forces, a force field of mutual curiosity and awe for discovering the world and taking personal risks. These women are not fearless, but they are courageous, and that’s what really matters.

One of the most recent additions to my social circle happened just a little over a year ago in the form of Mahilani Akiona, but I will let her tell you how she came to be in Los Angeles. All I can say is that she is the embodiment of boss lady spirit, and my conversations with her actually fueled the creation of the TLABL blog in the first place.

Having just returned from an epic trip to SE Asia over the new year, Mahilani has passport stamps and spiritual mileage in spades. The last 12+ months of her life have been transformative and eye-opening in a way that only a journey into the unknown can lead to the deepest self-discovery. So who better to provide some inspiration for finding your personal flow in the new year ahead?
