Happy #fashionwednesday, everyone! I am a sucker for shoes – who isn’t, amiright? – and own literally dozens and dozens of pairs. Personally – I’m a firm believer that you just can’t ever have enough toe tappers in your life. I’ve written several shoe guides over the years, but the one pair of shoe I just can’t stop gushing about is my tried and true, ride or die, dress it up dress it down classic riding boot. I hear them with dresses, jeans, black leggings, color pants..you name it and more than likely you can find me wearing it. If you haven’t bit the bullet on a good pair of riding boots yet – now is the time to do it. Winter shoes are on clearance and I got these babies for $11. YUP. ELEVEN DOLLARS. Excuse me while I skip away with practically highway robbery. Keep reading to find out why every woman needs a pair of classic riding boots this winter:
Some girls I know refused to wear tall boots because they had wider calves. That is utter nonsense – you just need the right size calf on your boot!! You can also choose the height so if you don’t like a certain part of your leg – I bet there is a boot to cover it. I prefer boots right at my knee or a little bit below. A dear friend of mine prefers mid-calf. Find the style that flatters you most.
Honestly, the leather boots I had from high school last all the way up until last year – so more than 7 years. They were less than $100 from Dillard’s and should honestly get some kind of award because I was so rough on them. If you take good care of them, they should be a purchase you make once every decade or so.
A pair of tall leather boots won’t ever go out of style. They are classic, like black pumps. You don’t have to worry about not being trendy or feeling embarrassed to wear them – which is awesome because those are the kind of staple pieces I live for in my closet.
PIN THIS FOR LATER:
I’m not sure if you noticed….but I LOVE riding boots. This is one of my go-to outfits because it’s flattering and hello layers in the winter and spring of Missouri. AND riding boots look notoriously adorable with jean jackets – my all time favorite layering piece. Let’s be honest – I have struggled letting go of the early 2000s. Those were the days. 😉
