I’m not sure why, but I equate fall with wine. I take that back. I equate most everything with wine. I think that’s what happens when you don’t have kids. Most people are all “pumpkin patches! trick or treating! corn mazes!” and I’m all “wine! I want more wine! take me to wineries!”
Clearly parents have healthier habits.
Regardless, if you are going to play the part you must look the part. And that’s where today’s blog post comes into play. You may recall this post where I touched on different looks to wear with the beloved bootie, but today we are raising the bar [literally, up your leg we are going] and sharing three different looks all around the classic riding boot. You know why I love riding boots? Because it doesn’t matter how long or short your jeans are. You just get to hide everything underneath. I also love riding boots because no heel. Sometimes wearing flat shoes are like riding a unicorn over a cloud [or at least that’s what I envision it to be like]. Comfortable all day long, a necessity when trying all of the Rieslings, Cabernets and Chardonnays.
As I mentioned in my previous post, when it comes to shopping for shoes Nordstrom is my go to. I have yet to find a better selection of quality, comfortable, cute shoes for all women, men and kids [my nieces favorite pair of shoes are these cute things]. Between the free shipping, free returns, sizing suggestions, etc they make it easy peasy when shopping online. I never thought I would become an online shoe shopper but here I am, buying shoes and stuff with a click of the button.
You’ll notice the same boots in all of the outfits before – they are these beloved Frye Melissa Button Riding Boots. The smell of the leather alone is enough to make anybody fall in love. You’ll notice they do come in both regular calf and extended calf and come in several colors.
K, onward to these outfits. The common theme besides the boots? Tops and or bottoms that allow for some extra breathing room, mostly because wine tasting leads to eating and eating leads to more wine and well, all of the extra room is necessary.
First up we have this classic dripping in fall colors look. Grab your favorite top, wrap that scarf around your neck and go! I love these twist front shirts [don’t worry – while they say dry clean, I wash on delicate cycle and air dry and works like a champ!] and plaid scarves this season.
