Here is a book your school-ager will love to read over and over! Mackenzie Goes Adventuring by J.L. Baumann takes place in the happy town of Snookton, full of Snookies, snooking all around. The main character, Mackenzie, decides to take a different path home after school one day. After convincing another friend to adventure with her through the enchanted woods, they soon find out why their teacher told them to “stay on the right path.” From the dangers of the Snarfling Snarfle to the delights of the Snookberry jelly roll at the Snookie Exchange, they encounter a whole new world. But after having met a whole new set of friends and learning the value of paying attention, they still have to find their way home.

Beautifully Detailed Ankle Boots - Alegria Eliza Dame @SoleProvisions

The Alegria Eliza Dame has to be the most beautiful pair of boots I've ever owned. The details are what really makes these ankle boots stand apart from others. The pattern on the exterior looks like a lacy fabric, but it's actually a patterned leather upper.
The Eliza Dame features a zipper on the inner part of each ankle to make them super easy to put on and take off. In fact, I've only had to tie them the first time I wore them, and now I can just use the zipper and save myself some time getting dressed in the morning.
I'm gushing all over these twill ribbon laces that feel like velvet and capped at the end with the most gorgeous decorative metal tips. At the center of the back of each boot is a sturdy ribbon tab that offers both style and a bit of help when putting the boots onto my feet.
The heel height is a comfortable 2 inches, not too high but just enough. The Alegria Eliza Dame has a slip-resistant polyurethane outsole, plus a cork, memory foam, and latex loaded footbed creating a “perfect fit” by forming to the natural contours of the foot providing superior arch support.
These ankle boots are perfect for wearing with dresses and dress pants! Thankfully, they also really rock an outfit of blue jeans and sweaters, which is my standard in the fall and winter. I'm not one to wear leggings, but these boots would pair well with those too.
I have found the Eliza Dame to be extremely comfortable and very true to size. I love the clean, soft, romantic lines of these ankle boots and the patterned exterior is a real fashion statement. They are so much fun to wear and I get loads of compliments on them when I'm wearing them.
You can get your beautiful pair of Alegria Eliza Dame ankle boots at Sole Provisions. They've been making unbelievably comfortable footwear since 1997 and feature styles for women, men, and kids. Sole Provisions can even outfit you with socks for your new shoes. Shop today!
