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.
