As a girl who grew up riding horses, I’ve owned a lot of boots! Over the past few years as a mom, I’ve missed having a good pair of boots in my wardrobe. So, every now and then, I’ll just start doing searches for what boot styles are out there and how a good pair of cowgirl boots can be incorporated into a wardrobe (thank you Pinterest!). You can check out my Cowgirl Pinterest board for my favs.
Each time I search, I always pull up CountryOutfitter.com as the hub for my research. I’ve entered tons of giveaways and I’ve searched through all my favorite brands and discovered new brands thanks to their amazing variety! In the past, I’ve always been an Ariat girl. In fact, I think for long days walking, feeding horses, riding and doing barn work, I’d still depend on Ariat’s amazing support and comfy soles! But, as a mom, I want something snazzy and comfortable! So, my new favorite, for this season of life is Corral boots.
Country Outfitter has a huge variety of women’s boot brands (about 14!). They also have some fun search features that make it fun to search by color, height, size, material, collection, price, width (to name a few). I chose the Women’s Turquoise Cortez/Cream Fleur de Lis Boot ($159)
Not only do I love wearing them. Since getting them, I’ve been trying to find multiple ways to work them into my pregnancy wardrobe. They are super fun to wear and are very comfortable! I knew, from owning dozens of horseback riding boots in the past, that I needed to order a half size larger than what I usually wear because of the pointed toe. Perfect decision! They are very comfortable! Yes, even in my pregnant state, I enjoy wearing them for a stroll around Old Town Scottsdale. (Where, by the way, I feel like I fit in perfectly. I am both “Scottsdale” with my boots and “Mom” with my stroller and my huge belly.) I have to say too that I would NOT have thought of cowboy boots as an essential to a pregnancy wardrobe! But, they are the only heel I will wear willingly (as I had resigned that life as a mom was a flat-only lifestyle). Not so anymore!
