Attending business school part-time while working full-time makes for some sleepy mornings, especially when they start earlier than usual like mine did this morning thanks to a Statistics midterm exam review.

Everyone needs several good pairs of boots but since boots require more leather and materials they often come with a higher price tag than your regular shoes, making it hard to create the collection you’d like. Thankfully, affordable retailer Zara now has a very nice boot collection. While Zara has made some tradeoffs in quality to bring the price down (e.g., cow leather vs. calfskin and synthetic lining vs. leather), overall its boots do the job. We like the ‘Boot with Zipped Cap-Toe.’
