Those of you follow me on Facebook know that last night I was musing about boots. Specifically, this kind:
I know, I know, it’s not preppy but who cares when you can be this awesome:
I’ve wanted a pair of cowgirl boots for almost 20 years, but have never quite pulled the trigger, so to speak. So I put it to my Facebook posse last night to see if I’ve waited too long. You know, mutton dressed as lamb and all that.
According to my gals, um NO, I have not missed the boat (chuck wagon?) on these. In fact, I’ve been encouraged to get some ASAP. I know this will surprise you, but I’m leaning toward black boots.
(And for those of you keeping track, no, Pete has not bought a motorcycle yet.)
One of my friends told me to forget black and instead go with something bold. So, just for kicks (ha!), I clicked over to Zappos to see what they have in the way of cowgirl chic in bold colors.
Are these bold enough for you:
They’re insanely expensive, but we’re just dreaming, right?
How about these:
Go big or go home, I say.
Or how about these:
In spite of the fact that I wear so much black, this is actually my favorite color:
These are for any U.T. (Texas or Tennessee) fans reading this:
I guess they’d also work for UVA, Princeton, and Clemson fans too. Given how much black I wear, I’m thinking that orange boots paired with my usual black outfits would be a bit too Halloween-ish.
What about y’all? Who wears cowgirl/cowboy boots? What color? If you don’t have some, but are drooling over these photos, which ones make your heart go pitter-pat?
Between yesterday’s post on Airstreams and today’s post on boots, y’all are probably thinking I’ve lost my mind or that I’m looking to escape Jenworld. Nope. Things are good here. I have tomatoes in the garden, we’re still enjoying the summer, and I just started a fun new needlepoint project. Really, life is good. It’s just fun to break out of one’s skin every now and then, even if it’s just in a blog post.
But I do think I need to get me some boots…
