When I originally went boot shopping, I was looking for a casual pair I could wear with my skinny jeans. I wanted a pair that would have a little room between the jean and boot, and I wanted them to hit just below the knee. With such specific wants, I really wanted to be able to try boots on in the store and not just order online. On a lunch break one day, I swung by Nordstrom to do a little boot shopping. I picked out these boots because visually they seemed to be exactly what I was looking for, but the added surprise was how cute they looked with my work dress. I love the casual aspect they gave to my swing dresses. I think this floral dress is my favorite to pair with these boots. It reminiscent of a boho chic vibe, but it also reminds me of a fun look for some Texas County Fair style. I grew up attending our county fair every year, and the look for me had to me a good mix of stylish and practical. One of the fair activities included walking through the animal barn to see my friends and family and their farm animals. You don’t know what you might be stepping through, and you definitely do not wear cute shoes to that. A great pair of riding boots like these would have been so perfect back in my high school days!! The county fair was also a popular date night activity with rides, dances, and a good ole BBQ Cookoff. This dress is perfect for that cute and feminine aspect of a fair outfit. If you are ever in the Houston area around the end of September, I recommend checking out the Fort Bend County Fair! If you are in the Dallas area this time of year, definitely check out the Texas State Fair. I went last year for the first time, and it is a fun experience from seeing Big Tex to all the delicious fried food! I hear this year there is fried lobster with champagne gravy. If you have been and tried it, I’d love to know what you thought of it!!
