timeless classic | riding boots

boot season is back, and i couldn’t be happier. it’s a favorite time of year for me. boots are fashionable, durable, trendy and classic. there are opens in a new windowrain boots, opens in a new windowhiking boots, opens in a new windowover-the-knee boots, opens in a new windowankle boots, opens in a new windowcombat boots, opens in a new windowchelsea boots, opens in a new windowsnow boots, opens in a new windowbooties, and opens in a new windowriding boots. opens in a new windowwhite and opens in a new windowred are trending this year, but we’ll always have brown and black to fall back on. but i have to admit i have a soft spot for the timeless and classic riding boot. this boot has been in existence since the 10th century. riding boots were developed to make horseback riding more comfortable with several key design features in mind. the knee shaft protected the rider’s leg, a rigid toe was intended to protect their foot in case it was stepped on by a horse, and the sturdy heel helped keep the foot secure in the stirrup.

riding boots look fantastic with a variety of outfits. an all-time favorite is a blazer, blue jeans, and riding boots seen opens in a new windowhere and opens in a new windowhere. but today’s ootd is all about casual comfort with a pair of opens in a new windowriding boots taking center stage and a darling opens in a new windowsnowflake sweater coming in a close second. ponte and faux leather leggings opens in a new windowsimilar here is a match made in heaven when paired with a sweater. at the last minute, i added a puffer vest opens in a new windowsimilar here and opens in a new windowcobalt blue scarf to add interest to the outfit as well as a striped shirt opens in a new windowsimilar here.

    I remember when those boots came out–I almost purchased them and had remorse after I let them go by. They look terrific! Same weather here–I’ve been getting some good use of sweaters lately. Stay toasty!
