Hello Riding Boots! - Doused in Pink - a fashion and lifestyle blog

Hello Riding Boots!

Riding boots are a must have closet staple. You don't have to be an equestrienne to wear them and you only need a few key pieces in your closet to style them. Tuck your skinny jeans into your boots for a sleek look.  Pair them with a tunic and leggings for a casual and comfy outfit.  Wear them with a pencil skirt for workwear to the office or a skater skirt or dress for a more fun and flirty look. Just be sure to stay away from baggy jeans that will bunch up in your boots. Your jeans should be fitted at the knee.

These Sam Edelman Penny boots were a birthday gift last year and they were on repeat all winter.  The rich brown color is a great alternative to black and the distressed burnished leather gives them an edgy feel. Today I'm styling my riding boots with my white skinny jeans for a fall transition outfit. I think you can wear white after Labor day as long as you stay away from a summery fabrics and colors.  







What's your favorite way to wear your riding boots?

Thanks for stopping by and reading today! I hope you will come back and I'd love it if you followed along with me on FacebookBloglovin or Google +.

  1. YES. This suits you SO WELL. You know I have all kinds of boots but have never found that perfect pair of riding boots (I have REALLY short calves), this is on my list of things to do. Maybe the Sam Edelman one's would be a good option...how tall are you btw!!?

    Would love to have you link this up if you can, you are one stylish mama!

  14. I love your neutral color palette here and I think the boots you chose look much better than if you'd gone with black for this outfit. It all works together so nicely and that shade of beigey taupe of your sweater is really flattering. I don't own many things in that color but I think I need to try it more often!

  20. I pretty much live in riding boots during the fall/winter. I've decided that I definitely need a new brown pair - I love yours! They look great paired with the white jeans - really pretty!

  21. Paring your riding boots with white is such a great idea. It really helps transition both the white and the boots - it's like you're meeting perfectly in the middle!
