These boots were made for walking.
That’s just what they do…
It’s hot and muggy so naturally I long for fall. I am grateful for today – but turning leaves and brisk air will be welcome!
I love boots – all boots – from prissy to rugged. I originally wanted these Old Gringo Mayra boots – but I felt I needed to prove to myself that I would get my money’s worth. I hadn’t had cowboy boots since I was a kid and those were hand-me-downs!
So, hello Ariat Epic – studded and glorious but ill-fitting on my feet and legs.
Then was the Ariat Bluebell – another bad fit – and not as cute in person as they were on amazon.com. 😐
I tried the Frye Billy boot – rubbed my ankle – even when I stood stock still! I have never hated the feel of a boot more…thick inner seams, who does that?!
In the end the Ariat Sahara worked best…not so different from other boots [save for the very western looking toe]. I think once they are broken in they will be a fave and go-to…the breaking in has been a challenge.
So far I like them with my lighter jeggings and knits that go with the stitching. But I plan to try them with:
- Fit and flare dresses
- Maybe a semi-body-con that hits above the knee
- Minis and knits
- Black jeggings and a slouchy black sweater half tucked
- Leggings and longer shirts with
- Moto [almost always Express]
- Cozy Cardi [snatched three up from BR for a song and 1 from Express]
- Matte gold jewelry
- Rugged silver jewelry
I have my eye on these too – maybe instead of the Old Gringo:
I’m not shopping for them actively – but I am just aware 🙂 Perfectly content with what I have and planning outfits.
12 I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 13 For I can do everything through Christ,[a] who gives me strength.
Content with what I have while not shopping relying on Christ’s strength. I have to focus on that daily. 🙂
