I have really been wanting a black pair of riding boots this season.  With all the sales going on right now, I decided it was a good time to buy!  I really wanted a pair of Tory Burch riding boots, but at over $300 it was just not in my price range right now, but one day!  I hit up the Nordstrom Fall Sale to see if they had any contenders closer to the $100 mark.  I was torn between #6 and #7.  I turned to my bestie to help settle the tie-breaker.  She owns #6 and loves them!!  I was all set to buy when I checked the boot shaft height.  I’m only 5’3″, so I try to buy boots in the 15 inch range.  The Sam Edelman boots are just over 16 which is just a bit too tall for me.  I decided to look around the site once more and found the perfect exactly what I was looking for boot and it was on sale!  The Corso Como was the exact smooth leather look I wanted, and a boot shaft height of just under 15 inches!  Riding boots are definitely a staple of my fall and winter wardrobe!  I pair them with leggings, skinny jeans, and dresses.  I’m really excited to welcome this new pair to my shoe family! 🙂
