~boots aren't just for winter~{a fashion post}

A fashion post?
Yep, I am stepping outside of my comfort zone today
 and talking about something besides paint and pillows.

I am talking boots.
Why?
Because I love them. I love them so much I could wear them everyday, and I am here to tell you, you can too!

Boots don't need to be saved for winter.
Get out your daisy dukes and have some fun!









I buy most of my boots from Country Outfitter.
They have a huge selection and flash sales, and you know me, I like a good discount!
I bought mine on sale and it looks like they are sold out, but here are some similar ones.

Tomorrow I will be back to my regularly scheduled design posts. 
Don't worry, I don't see myself in any fashion magazines anytime in the near future. ever.

I'm more of a flip flop kind of girl, who loves a Summery sandal too (too hot for boots anyway - 100+ degrees 6 months out of the year here), but I had to chime in to tell you that your legs look great!

No boots in warm weather here! Another flip-flop kinda gal (also in the South). I will only wear boots in the coldest weather - which is not that often here. I love my feet uncovered and wear sandals as long as I can!

But, the outfit and boots do look good on you!

Love boots, in the summer not so much. Another Southern girl. However, today's cooler than normal temps might get me to break them out! Do you still work with your trainer. You look amazing!

Girl, you could be in the middle of the Mojave Desert on the hottest day of the year and make those boots look good. Forget the flip flops. Rock the boots. P.S. Love the trucker hat too :)

So understand!

You wear them well, Melaine!

Being a PacNWest girl...the minute the Nordstrom Anniv Sale starts... I just smell leather and head out to drool over the new crop of boots!

Yesterday, my post was about black Birkenstocks...so "not granola" when paired with slim shabby jeans and a killer black bag...perfect for September in the PNW. Can't believe they are back.

Fashion is fun! Glad you "stepped" out of your zone!

Yay for boots! My daughter and I are boot fanatics! In fact, we just took a long road trip and made sure to stop in El Paso along the way to hit a bunch of the western boot outlets. Added several pairs to the collection. That was SO much fun! What deals! Enjoy your boots! They look great! :-D

Hannah Chambers said...

Melanie I've always wanted to get a pair - what type of toe style would you recommend for the most comfort? Do they run true to size? thanks so much!

Melaine Thompson said...

Hannah, I like any toe as long as they aren't too pointy. I always round up a half size because I always wear socks with mine! Hope that helps!

Paige! You crack me up!!! Love you!

Ranch Girl Diaries said...

Those are too cute and remind me of the Ariats I got for my wedding! While we are talking fashion, where specifically did you get your jean shorts? I have one pair I'll wear- got them on clearance at Fred Meyer three years ago but can't seem to find any cute Jean shorts anymore! They are either old lady style or soooo short they show my butt cheeks! :(

Blondie's Journal said...

I love the look! I've love them with skirts and maxi dresses. Booties more than cowboy...that's just not Illinois! lol!

Karen Doyle said...

you look fab in your boots, I could not agree more- boots and a short skirts in the summer works for me,

Marisa Franca said...

You look adorable in your boots and they look fab with your shorts. BUT my age and body will NOT allow me to wear anything close to what you're wearing. I wish I could. Now I could wear the boots with winter clothes -- maybe :-)

Cindy DIYbeautify said...

You are beautiful and could totally rock a magazine ad for Country Outfitters!! I'm still hunting for the 'perfect boot'! I'm a recent Nashville transplant...and I just gotta have boots, know what I mean? I must have weird feet though b/c my size is WAY too big...tried to buy online twice (CF's amazing deals) but had to return both :( Boo! Still looking...

Tiffany Leigh Interior Design said...

Hot mama! You are so cute. I used to frequent the country bars in my home town and always wanted a pair of cowboy boots!
