To help with this, I recently got some new boots. They are black, over-the-knee boots with golden stirrups. I KNOW.
Yes, I feel uncomfortable and really grown-up when I wear them (spoiler alert: I'm not a real grown-up).
Yes, I feel like a biker chick when I wear them (spoiler alert: I'm not a biker chick).
|This biker chick is not me.|
Yes, I look like a real New Yorker when I wear them (spoiler alert: I'm not a real New Yorker).
And most importantly, yes, my students told me they were cool. They actually used the word "poppin'," which according to the quality source, The Urban Dictionary, means:
1. An ill party that is in full swing.
2. To get (something) started.
I think that means I'm kind of hip? (spoiler alert: I might not really be that hip, but I do have some awesome boots).
