Necklace: Shop Lately (buy – my invite, original)
Can you believe I’ve lived in Texas my whole life but never owned a pair of cowboy boots? It is literally unheard of here in Texas. Even while living in the urban area of Dallas, I still regularly see guys and girls alike sporting cowboy boots and hats walking down the street. There’s a definite niche for cowboy-chic style here in Texas. When I was given the opportunity to try a pair of boots from Ariat, I figured this was my big opportunity to try and nail that equestrian look for myself!
I fell in love with this over-the-knee boot with laser cutouts the instant I saw it. It’s the perfect blend of fashion-forward style and classic Western design. The boot is slim around the calf and fits perfectly over a pair of medium-weight jeans on me; the side zip also makes getting in and out of the boot a breeze, thank goodness! Naturally for this first outfit, I paired the boots with my gingham shirt to play up the cowgirl look but did add a bit of fashionista glam with my statement necklace and arm jewelry. I never thought I’d love cowboy boots so much but I totally understand why so many girls have this as their go-to weekend look — equestrian chic is equestrian comfy!
