Style: Equestrian Inspired

This summer has been too darn hot, so I’m moving on sartorially to cooler seasons. As a fan of skirts and dresses, and a gal that lives in Chicago, boots are a must in fall and winter. I got my first (and only) pair of Frye boots a few years ago, and they’ve spoiled me for all others. Mine have buckles, but other than that they look a lot like the boots below (and the price is so good on them right now!).

I’d wear the dress below with the belt and a pair of flat strappy sandals when weather permits, and I’d wear it as below in the winter, but with a pair of cream cable-knit tights. And maybe a jaunty hat. How would you style it?

    I just looked at that dress online super late last night when I saw the 30% email in my inbox. It’s so pretty, but I’m disappointed that its 100% rayon. :( I’m a cotton kind of girl. So, Ill be passing on the dress, but if it were a nice natural fabric, I would wear it in Fall with cognac strappy sandals and gold jewelry… It’s very hot here in the AZ desert, and our Fall is in the 90s. I love the belt you chose to pair with it!

    FYI, Nordstrom has a lot of Frye boots (and other lovely fall boot offerings)on sale right now for their Anniversary Sale. And no, I don’t work for them. I’m just a librarian who loves shoes. :)

    Ahhh…I dream of Frye boots, but alas my calves will never fit in them…if they ever offer boots with something larger than a 15.5 inch circumference, I’ll be all over those :)

      I know what you mean. I just barely fit into them myself.

        Amanda, thanks for letting me know. I made a little mistake in the coding on this post (I write all of my posts in html), and it made the whole list of links not show up! It has been fixed now, so you should be able to see everything.

    Soooo cute. I have very similar pieces to these items. I think I will be recreating this look this fall. Thanks for the great ideas.

    I love equestrian style – not just for clothing but for home decor as well. I love anything that’s preppy and country at the same time :)
