Knee-high riding boots are my current obsession now. I have two plain ones in black and tan, both worn to death. They are my three-season boots — with shorts and dresses with knee-high stockings in the spring or fall and with thicker socks + jeans or high denier tights or leggings for cooler winter climates.
I have been looking for something with a little bit more flair (read: fancier buckles). Leather riding boots from Amazon Boot Shop, top from left to right: Enzo Angiolini Visco women’s leather riding boot (in Cognac), Vince Camuto Flavian leather boot (in Dark Wood/Black with gold hardware) and ECCO Hobart buckle boot (in black, also in Mink or Cognac).
While the rest of the world braces for a white wintry spectacle, it’s been rain, rain and MORE rain all month long here. These pretty handmade couture umbrellas from Parasolerie Heurtault might just tempt someone into braving the gloomy weather. From top, Bagatelle embroidered parasol featuring a carved mahagony handle, Colette haute couture umbrella and Albert men’s brolly.
