Are you ready boots?

riding boots are practically perfect in every way. 
you could say they are the mary poppins of boots. 

first off, they look good with everything.  

dress? check. 
leggings? check. 
skirt? shorts? jeans? 
check. check. check. 

and to top it all off, these puppies are made for walking.

so you should probably buy some,  
because let's face it, we could all use a little more 
super-ca-la-frag-al-istic-expi-al-a-do-s-ious 
in our lives.

here are a few of my favorites.

mercedes buying tips:

buy the most expensive boots you can afford. that sounds really elitist, but they tend to be better made so they last longer. they are also less likely to make your feet stink 
(an important consideration if you have feet that smell like a bag of dill pickle chips after a day in cheapies).


if high quality boots aren't in the cards this year, order a pair of cheapies online. i can never find my size in the store but they've always got what i need at target.com.  that sounds like a paid endorsement.  in my dreams
(oh and if you go this route for the love of all that is holy, invest in dr. scholl's oder eaters.)


treat your boots to some weather-proofing spray. it's worth every penny. i know it seems like such a pain in the arse to spend 10 bones on preventative medicine... for your boots. It will do you both good in the long run so quit your belly aching and pony up.  

up next: boots made for night walking.
