riding the way to equestrian chic

Okay, confession: I've recently become obsessed with riding boots. I purchased a pair from Zara which are beautiful - pictures really don't do them justice. I casually slipped them on (Zara is criminal for having all their sizes out on the floor) and it was instant love. Honestly. Love at first sight. And now I'm having second thoughts. What is with that?! I think it's like that silly scenario when you purchase your wedding dress, and then a couple days later you see another beautiful gown just sparkling in the window. It's crazy. Fear of commitment, perhaps? Maybe.

It's difficult because I put these gorgeous boots on, and I feel amazing. This could be due to the fact that I never, ever have blown two hundy on a pair of boots. Last-year-Rachelle would be like, heeeeelllll no. But Rachelle-with-well-paying-job says, suuree why not. What am I getting myself in to? To convince myself that I made the right choice I put together a big post of beautiful riding-type boots. I think I can truthfully say that I still love mine. Although those Modcloth ones are still staring me down.

  2. I love riding boots too. I haven't found a pair yet though. The South Platte Modcloth ones seem like a fairly inexpensive way to get my first pair.

  6. Riding boots are nice, but I find it difficult to find ones with nice shape. The ones you have here are great though!

  13. Yes! I am obsessed too.

    With boots in general, in fact. All I want to do all day long is buy more and more pairs. This addiction is going to be the death of my bank account.

  15. I love riding boots. They're a classic and so practical and sleek--you really can't go wrong with two pairs (or five).
