Spend or Save: Riding Boots

13 Oct

With Autumn here it is time to break out the boots; suede, ankle and my favorite, riding boots. While trends might vary from season to season, boots will always be in style. In my opinion they are a staple in one’s wardrobe and I can justify spending more than I normally would on one item. However, that doesn’t mean I am able to drop a few hundo’s on a boot. Especially when I live in New England and the road salt has a tendency to r-u-i-n boots. In my world, boots can not only be a staple but also need to be replaceable.

I fell in love with these Tory’s instantly..I mean duh, how could you not? But at almost five hundred smackers, they are far away from fitting into my boot budget. Imagine my surprise when I saw these beautiful Anne Klein boots while strolling through Lord and Taylor. I couldn’t try them on fast enough.

 

Things that make me happy today:

1. Drinks with friends after work

2. Motivational speakers

3. Today is the 13th, my favorite number

    Love love love riding boots! I bought a pair of Enzo Angiolini’s last year, and you’re definitely right, the salt here in New England eats away at them! I would go for the cheaper pair (which are still super cute!) incase the salt chooses to be temperamental! AND with the money you save, you can buy more than one pair 😉
