cowboy boots styled 2 ways

This post is sponsored by Zappos, however all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Growing up in West Texas, I have always loved a good pair of cowboy boots. Zach grew up on a farm, so he’s pretty much lived in boots his whole life. When I told him I was getting a pair of Ariat boots, he nearly fell out of his chair. He informed me that they’re top notch in quality which made us both laugh since I definitely won’t be herding cattle in these. That’s the beauty of cowboy boots, though- they’re so versatile! Whether you’re planning on tailgating at your alma mater this fall, taking a trip to the pumpkin patch, or just heading to brunch with friends, these Ariat boots will add the cutest touch to any outfit.

I wanted to show y’all just how easy it is to style these boots with two different everyday looks. The first is an outfit I wore to brunch last Sunday with a girlfriend, and the Heritage Western R Toe were perfect with my sweater dress!

I was shocked to find that the boots didn’t even have to be broken in at all- they were comfortable from the first wear and fit true to size (I have my normal size 6). But let me tell you guys honestly that I LOVE ordering off of Zappos. I have ordered the wrong size on items twice (my own fault for not checking measurements) and returns were so easy- they have some of the best customer service I’ve ever experienced. And that’s saying a lot for someone who shops all the time! I have also found great sales on Zappos and shipping is super fast.

For the second look, I put together an outfit that I’ll be wearing to the Texas A&M vs. Alabama football game in early November. My boys are excited for the actual game, while I’m excited to wear a cute outfit and eat hot dogs. This might be my favorite way to wear Ariat boots, since they provide warmth when it’s chilly out, are comfortable, and are actually flattering on all body types. Plus I had this idea in my head that cowboy boots were really expensive, but these are under $150 (with 5 star reviews). That’s an awesome price for something that is such great quality and will last you for years to come. This classic design never goes out of style, either. I know because I still have a pair of my Mom’s boots from the early 1970’s that look very similar and they’ve been my favorites until I got my hands on these!

I can’t believe I waited this long to get a pair of Ariat boots with as often as we attend A&M football games, but I’m so glad I finally did. These are way more comfortable than any of the other boots I used to wear to games and much cuter, too! Now I think it’s time to get Bear and Boone matching Ariat cowboy boots, especially since Bear is obsessed with Woody from Toy Story. Definitely making it happen before the Houston Rodeo in March!

What is your favorite look- one or two? Let me know in the comments!
