See My Boots? Like, For Real This Time!

A long, long time ago I wrote this post about how I wanted to buy some cowboy (cowgirl) boots. Since then, I have also pinned any number of boots and boots outfits on my pinterest boards. 

Seriously, it's been years since I've been talking about boots! 

But guess what!!
Now I have them!!!

Sidenote: I was all ready to buy my boots this Wednesday (4th of July). I looked way cuter than I do in the above photo. My hair was all did and I was wearing an actual, like, outfit. But Allen's was closed! So today I had to go buy them after a photo shoot which requires a pony tail. Also, my photographer (Michael) did a great job, but is not a whole lot of help in the 'how's my hair?' department. I'm just sayin' I was cuter on Wednesday. Take my word for it.

Back to the real story. 

The reason I bought my boots today is that we paid off one of my student loans on Monday! Boots were my reward. I guess Michael's reward was...the joy on my face when he bought me boots. 

When we first walked in, I was temporarily distracted by all the options...

I think especially so by the many options that had something to do with rhinestones.

Apparently there are a lot of rhinestone cowgirls walking around out there. 

But I had pretty much already picked mine out before I got to the store, and stuck mostly to the plan except I bought a lighter color. 

Partly because I had to have help getting the darker color off my foot. (It was a slightly different style)

She really almost fell over. It's her own fault though. I kept telling her I didn't think I could get them on, but she said to use the boot strap thingies and they're supposed to be tight. She believed me after she had to pull it off. 

Sidenote: Yes, I am wearing the boots right now. 

So, with no further ado, here's my boots! 

They're so prettttty, and sooooft and they smell gooood. 

Here's all the places they say Lucchese: 

Here's the front: 

Here's the back: 

Here they are on the porch swing: 

Here they are on me while I swing and Michael fiddles with the sprinkler: 

I could do this all night. I have, like, another fifty pictures.

Sidenote: Yes, I am going to sleep in them tonight. 


  1. These boots were made for walkin, and that's just what they'll do...

    I can see a whole album... My boots at the grocery store. My boots at the library. My boots at the Eiffel Tower. My boots in Vegas. Lol! I know what you mean about the smell too, I just bought Joe a pair of boots for his birthday and Kelsey and I stood at her desk smelling them for a while before I took them outside.

  2. Congratulations! They are beautiful! I am verrry jealous!
    (And I agree with Kelley. You should do a children's book about all the places you wear your boots!)
