Riding into Fall

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend. I actually had Sunday to myself and it was lovely. I am in a rut where I get one thing done and then have something else to do, so my DIY's keep getting pushed back. Oh well, that 's life. On a positive note, I did find a pair of great pair of Merona Riding Boots from Target. I have been on the hunt for riding boots. I have bought a couple of pairs and returned them because they weren't what I was looking for. I finally came across the pair for me. These boots are only available online. They are $74.99 each, but right now they are buy one get one 1/2 off. So, I got a black pair and brown pair with free shipping. I bought a 6 and usually I am a 6 1/2. These come in 4 colors: brown, black, cognac, and burgundy.  These boots look so similar to the Melissa button Frye boots that are around $400.00. So, I got two pairs for around 1/4 the price of the one pair of the Fryes. I paired my boots with this chambray dress and skinny braided black belt. I had a couple of chambray shirts I loved, well I love this dress even more. I will be wearing this dress a ton this fall.

Do you own something chambray? Do you have riding boots? What do you wear your riding boots with?

Linking up at Watch What I am Wearing, Monday Mingle,  and Visible Monday.


  1. I do have riding boots but not as tall and elegant as these, Carrie. Love the combination of the boots plus chambray dress. Thanks for sharing your fab look with Visible Monday!

  2. I love this chambray dress paired with the boots and knee high socks. I love my chambray shirt and my riding boots usually get paired with dresses or skinny jeans :)

  3. Riding boots are a must have in my eyes, I lived in mine over winter

  4. The dress, and the boots, look fabulous on does your chic short haircut!

    I have nothing chambray and no riding boots. Looks like I have some shopping to do! :)

  5. Those boots do look so much like the Melissa's which I have had my eye on for a few months now.
    I love that chambray dress on you. I have a chambray shirt that I am looking forward to wearing when we get some cooler weather around here. Was 103 today! ick!

  6. Such a great choice of riding boots, Carrie - I had the same thing trying to find the right pair! I love how quirky cool you look with the shirt dress and socks... love that touch ;)

    I also wanted to say how much I enjoy your DIYs - they're some of the best out there! And for all those reasons I've nominated you for a Sunshine Blog Award - see today's post for the details!
