Daily: New Boots

As promised yesterday, here are my new boots! Thank you, Steve Madden, for making such beautiful boots. Isn’t the cognac color amazing? I can’t wait to pair them with more sweaters and blazers. I’m a big fan of the equestrian look this fall, and while these boots aren’t exactly riding boots, they come pretty close (for a great price). Here’s the breakdown:

Sweater: Garage sale (American Eagle)
Jeggings: Old Navy
Boots: Steve Madden
Necklaces: American Eagle
Ring: Payless

I really wanted to play up the color of the boots, so I thought they’d pop well against the mustard in the sweater (which I bought at a garage sale for 75 cents). This is one of two mustard-colored items I own, the other being a pair of flats. I just don’t think it looks all that great against fair skin like mine.

Also, the boots have a slight wedge to them. Perfect and so comfortable. I honestly couldn’t be happier. I actually pre-ordered some riding boots off of Target’s website, but they were backordered, and it was possible that I wouldn’t even receive them. So I went on a mission at Macy’s. Mission accomplished.

Anybody else digging riding boots and the equestrian trend for fall?
