I Just Bought

I decided it was time I did something for the economy.  No need to thank me (wink)!  I have been coveting a pair of these boots for several months.  All I saw in Paris in October were riding boots - everywhere!  I have wanted a pair since, and got these beauties on sale (okay, so the trend is likely over in Europe but it didn't even register here, yet!). 

I took English riding lessons for quite a few years (in my late 20's!) and I felt a wave of nostalgia when I put them on - even though they are not quite as high on the leg as my old riding boots, which come all the way to the knee.

These are lovely with jeans and skirts and leggings and even looked good with my glen check wool dress pants today - except it is a shame when you cannot see all of them.  Almost as nice as a new bathtub.


  1. Hi Terri!

    We are engaged :-D
    And my move is 100 km away so it is a bigger move for me. My youngest will stay with dad and finish her school and my older wil start the gymnasium this autumn so she move with me.

    I will tell u more later

    ...and yes stockholm u must see, it is a very romantic and beautiful city.


  2. Great boots! Glad to see you are doing your bit for the economy - I'm reading on so many blogs and in the new that people are going to cut back on their spending, but to me, this is the exact time we should be spending. I bought car mats today - not as exciting!

  3. Those boots look wonderful. I'm so happy you treated yourself. Speaking of helping out the economy, drop by my blog Terri. I'm having a HUGE sale. :-)

  4. They're beautiful! Enjoy them, my dear. And I do thank you for helping the economy. I'm sure that it will do more than my purchasing Christmas wrap at 30 cents a roll! =>

  5. Beautiful boots. Thank you for doing your part for the economy. Perhaps I should venture out this weekend and do some buying as well. It's the least I can do! Right?
    Enjoy them!


  6. Those are great boots! Where did you find them?

  7. . . .or perhaps a great sink! Love the boots.

  8. Terri! I have been terribly neglectful of my blog, but I have had a setback with my headache pain and have started to again turn to my blog as an outlet... and realized how much I missed keeping up with you and so many others... I do hope that you are feeling well, and I am going to be catching up on all of your beautiful posts...
    I hope you and your David are staying warm!

  9. lovely! i <3 boots!

  10. Nice boots, I also love boots, but find it always hard to find nice fitting ones. Sometimes it's so lovely to buy something nice for yourself, especially if you wanted them for awhile!
    enjoy them and I am sure they look good.


  11. Hi Terri!

    Oops I just managed to post on the previous message, but hey, I'm sure you don't mind multiple comments :P

    I really like your boots and like you said they are great with skirts and leggings and pants and whatnot :) Lovely!

    Have a great weekend!

    Hugs, Susanne

  12. Yummilicious boots, Terri! and 3 cheers for doing your part! I salute you and think I will join you <3

    Oh boy, I love those boots! I'm a terrible shopper especially when it comes to footwear; nature, as a cruel joke, put men's feet on this girly body. I have EEE width on my little gems (size 10 or 11) and finding fancy boots is impossible. So I shall just sigh and whimper with jealousy...and continue wearing my winter (MEN's) hiking boots.....

  14. I too love riding boots. I miss horseback riding...

  15. Grerat boots. And I am glad you bought them for yourself as well as the economy. Thank-you!!

  16. love your boots!!! so casually elegant
