Zara Plaid Skinny TrousersDSC_0015Now, on to today’s post….  I am absolutely crushing on plaid right now!  Honestly, I guess I’ve been crushing on it for awhile but more so by admiring it on other people than trying it for myself!  The thing is… I’ve never really been a plaid person…  ever.  I think the last time I really wore plaid was probably in like 7th grade.  (Does anybody remember those plaid skirts with the giant safety pins??? – Yep, that was me!)

Riding High

Ok, so let’s just get all of the cards out on the table…  I have a problem. I like to buy things. Lots of things. Anything. And if you’ve been reading my blog for any period of time (let’s say… ummm…  one post), you already know this.  So I’m not sure why I’ve been holding out on the fact that I bought an awesome pair of riding boots a few weeks back!

Yep, remember my Rue La La post?  Well, that’s when I got them.  The Kelsi Dagger Jayna.  I just love the two tone exterior and there is a… shall we say rugged “chic”ness about them.  Totally waiting on my first opportunity to wear these this season!

Now, since the cat is out of the bag, I might as well share the rest of my inventory of riding boots… That’s right — a girl can never have too many riding boots!!

Anyway, I’m so glad to see their debut for this fall.  It’s such an easy way to be fab but without the typical shoe drama (*read discomfort*)!  Comfortable and chic?  Sign me up baby.  I mean it’s sheer genius.  And they are completely versatile. Great with jeans, skirts and maxi dresses. Adding a great riding boot can completely change the dynamic of an ensemble.
