Shoe Week ~ Giddy Up

Flat riding-inspired boots are super hot for fall and make for an easy to wear, very fashionable partner for skinny jeans and leggings. I am especially in love with these riding boots since they so closely mirror the actual boots I ride in. There are so many great styles to choose from or you can go authentic and buy a real pair of riding boots. Here are a few of my favorites:

Go authentic with real riding boots, I am a fan of the Ariat Challenge II Field Boot, available online at www.smartpakequine.com.

Cole Haan always has the best boots and this season is no different, there are way too many gorgeous styles to choose from. Available online at www.colehaan.com.

Piperlime has a whole section devoted to riding boots, here are some of the best styles. Available online at www.piperlime.com.

These Charles David riding boots look like real riding boots. Available at www.shopbop.com.

Loving

I wouldn’t be a true clotheshorse if I didn’t go absolutely crazy for this purse (or pretty much any purse) by Horse+Nail. These bags are beyond exquisite, combining rich, luxurious leather with horse inspired hardware. Their charm lies in their blending of western/equestrian chic with a hard edge rock and roll vibe. They are truly unique and unlike anything else on the market, this is not only a bag you will love but a bag that other people will notice when you walk down the street. Move over Gucci there is a new game in town that puts your horse inspired bags to shame! I want one so bad I can hardly stand it! You can drool over their bags by going to their website www.horseandnail.com and www.shopbop.com.

Rock and Roll

I have never been able to carry off the whole rock and roll vibe. I love the way it looks when done right but for some reason I am just a bit too preppy to carry it off. But thanks to this Gemma silk blouse I can live out a bit of my rock and roll fantasy while still staying true to my preppy style. This blouse goes both ways, it will look equally as good paired with ripped up rocker jeans and studded boots or tucked into a high waisted black pencil skirt and round toe pumps. I also think it would look cute worn with dark skinny jeans, ballet flats and a warm cozy sweater. Rock On! Gemma shirt available at www.shopbop.com.

Pair with Diane von Furstenberg Pencil Skirt and Stuart Weitzman Pumps.

Go Casual with skinny J Brand Jeans, Tory Burch flats and a loose Anthropologie sweater.

The Shirtdress

A shirtdress (ˈsʜ ərtˌdres) is a style of dress which borrows details from a man’s shirt. These can include a collar, a button front, or cuffed sleeves. Often, these dresses are made up in crisp fabrics like cotton or silk, much like a men’s dress shirt would be. As they are typically cut without a seam at the waist, these dresses often have a looser fit, usually relying on a belt to define the waist. Button fronts and a forgiving fit make this a flattering look for most body types. (courtesy of Wikipedia)

Every woman should have at least one shirtdress in her closet due to their extreme versatility and as mentioned above they are extremely flattering on all body types. I am absolutely loving this beyond gorgeous silk jacquard shirtdress from Tucker. It is feminine and elegant without trying too hard and will make your legs look  miles long when paired with sky high nude heels. It comes with a matching fabric belt but it will also look great paired with a skinny or thick waist cinching belt. Keep accessories to a minimum, maybe just some thin gold bangles and diamond studs and let your tan, shimmering skin be the main accessory to play off the pale peachy fabric. Available at www.shopbop.com.
