It may never be winter…

I’m sure there are people out there buried in snow right now – but Charlotte, NC is not one of those places! It’s supposed to be mid sixties this weekend. This weather is really throwing a wrench in my usual late November/December attire. It does work nicely though if you are still on the hunt for some great riding boots! My friend Larissa asked me to scour the internet to find her the perfect riding boot to put on her Christmas list, which I was happy to do! I came up with 8 options that I believe are long lasting and timeless choices. Hint: I own #4 – the Frye Jane! You can see them in a recent outfit post here


My thoughts:

#1: Biondelle Riding Boots by Boutique 9: They’re on sale (!!), 100% leather and feature a classic buckle for everyday wear.

#2: Penny Riding Boots by Sam Edelman: I have the older version of these military-inspired boots (mine snap all up the back) and they have been a wonderful, long lasting boot! The leather is a beautiful cognac and goes with all colors – even black!

#3: Archive Leather Boot by Madewell: The reddish-hue gives an urban edge! I’ve seen these time and time again in the Madewell stores and fall in love each time.

#4: Jane Chunky Boots by Frye: I scored these in a 20% off sale from South Moon Under (the sale is on right now too!!), and have loved wearing them this fall! The leather is beautiful and the stitching keeps them from being overly western. A classic that I’ll have forever! While you’re at it, I’d suggest picking up these Frye booties at 20% off too with code HOLIDAY20!

#5: Irene Boots by Tory Burch: Understated elegance is what you’ll get from these. A deep, rich dark brown with a subtle equestrian influence. Dress it up or down, and they’re on sale!

#6: Paige Tall Riding boots by Frye: Another classic and best seller from Frye – falling right below the kneecap, they are statement makers that show you’ve got a good eye for style.

#7: Boxer Flat Boots by Juicy Couture: Croc-embossed (make heads turn!) and oxblood in color – you’d likely be the only girl wearing these and everyone would be asking where you found these beauties! I love how they have an edge but still lend the classic riding boot style. Plus that raw scalloped edge….anything scalloped wins by default.

#8: Zanny Knee Boot by Boutique 9: An affordable option ($150) if you’ve been lusting after these Loeffler Randall boots that I also featured on a recent post! I love the wedge heel and the lack of hardware – making it easy to transition between different color palettes and keeping it dressy at the same time! Nothing but great reviews – hop on this deal before it’s too late!

Now you’ll be an informed boot buyer!! Which one will be added to your Christmas list?!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
