Prairie Fire

27 Jan

Three years!  Yes, 3 years.  That’s how long it took me to find the perfect over-the-knee boots.  They do say that patience is a virtue. 

If you missed the sneak peek video, check it out here.

My favorite pair of boots, had seen better days.  After 5 years of serious dedication, it was time to send them to their final resting place (aka Goodwill).  I knew it wasn’t going to be easy to find a replacement….after all, they were the perfect boots.  So just like that, my search began.  And continued for three years.  Why is it so hard to find quality, cut, and style in a boot?  I mean, we aren’t talking about diamonds here!

I knew that I might have a fighting chance on our vacation to the Pacific Northwest.  Seriously, thosePacNW girls wear boots 7 months out of the year.  They HAVE to have something that fits all the criteria up there.  Plus, the flagship Nordstroms is in downtown Seattle…how convenient :).

So there I was, on the search under the warm spotlights of the shoe department, in the flagship Nordstroms.  Suddenly, there they were.  <insert angelic music>  THE perfect boots.  The luxurious chestnut leather caught my eyes first.  Then, the gold glimmer of the embellishments had me hypnotized.  And, the cut – so impeccable, I’m pretty sure I did a little happy dance.  I was in heaven.  Finally, perfection in a boot!!

If you are STILL looking for your perfect pair, look no further.  They have arrived AND are on sale!  Get them now (click here), before they are out of stock.  A $600+ worthy boot for under $150?!  I can’t believe it even exists!

You’ll never go wrong styling this boot.  You could throw on a casual tee, a poncho (I scored this one at Horseshoe Boutique in Seattle), or a dressy blouse.  It all works with these boots.  Add a simple accessory (or 2) and you are the envy of all equestrian goddesses.  Create your own Prairie Fire.
