Trend Watch Wednesday: {Boot Camp}

Oh boots, how much do I love thee?

I could go on for days about my love affair with the boot. Oh, who are we kidding, I could go on for days about my love affair with footwear in general. But y'all....seriously....this season's shoe styles are really doing some damage to my wallet.

I can't get enough of the riding boot lately and have worn them practically every day since the temps dropped down to near freezing temps in Arkansas, like the frigid 82 we experienced here yesterday. These little lovey dovies from Frye are darn near perfect. I think they'd be real cute sittin' in my closet, no?

M'kay, so I flat out refuse to partake in the viewing of the Footloose remake starring that chick from DWTS, BUT....BUT...I do love her boots from the still shots of the movie I've seen on Style.com. Allow me to introduce you to the Taylor Harness boot by Frye. Werd on the street is that girl got to keep ALL of the boots she wore on set. So jeal, so jeal.

Maria Sharapova plays tennis, struts her stuff for Nikon and now, apparently, designs boots. Meet the Air Buckle boot by MS for Cole Haan. Holla!

Oh, Stevie Madden, how your boots entice me so...Our boy Steve has done it again with his aptly named Intyce boot, just in time for fall. Lurvely.

These cute little Banya booties by Dolce Vita are too presh for words, what with their little bow on the back. Get thee to Piperlime and buy them up before they're gone!

Jessica Simpson's Tustiny boots are the prime example of how a stacked boot should be done. Kudos to Miss Simpson for her good taste and fab design team.

It's so tempting to buy up all of these beautiful boots, however, I'm trying to exercise self-control with sartorial spending lately....


...REALLY trying...

...Yep, still trying....

Eh, screw it. Where's my debit card?!

Be blessed, lovelies-

  20. Wow totally loved it i'm a great fan of Frye Boots, I'm Boot fetish and i own a huge collection.


  21. Thank you for the comment about the new footloose... I can't bring myself to watch it. Maybe later... but I really get bummed about remakes, and the fact that my youth is suddenly considered "classic" now I know how my parents felt when I called their music "classic" in the 80's. OYE! That being said totes love those boots!


What'cha got?
