Ethical Riding Boots and How to Wear Them

I am a firm believe in buying good boots. Even inexpensive boots are relatively expensive so investing in a great boot that will last you seasons makes complete sense to me. Also having a great pair of boots really makes dressing way easier because a good pair of boots can be worn in a variety of ways!

I typically wait till around this time of year to shop for my boot needs because towards the end of January and into February I find the boots start to go on sale but aren’t completely out of stock yet.

The style of boot I’m highlighting today is the riding boot. I think riding boots are super classic and can be worn in a variety of outfits.

Riding boots look completely at home with very traditional outfits but I also think it’s a downtown girl’s boot. To me riding boots are classic but easy which is why I think it pairs so well with many, many different kinds of looks. And you’re in luck!!

    These are all very nice selections with pretty good prices too. Although I do think that I’m one of the few people (or bloggers) who is not that into riding boots. I know that must sound weird, lol.

    I love how boots look – mostly on other people. πŸ™‚ But I’d definitely buy more pairs if they were cheaper… Unfortunately you’re right, even cheap boots are expensive! πŸ˜€
