~Fashion Post~ Ariat Boots Edition

Almie Rose

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ariat.

FASHION IS HERE! I asked you guys what you would like to see more of on my blog, and some of you answered fashion posts, so here you go: a ~~fashion post~~ featuring Ariat boots! Here I am being ~~casual~~ in my York Ariat boots with a BCBGeneration coat, SideOne Dummy records tee, and black jeans that I think are from the GAP and who cares anyway, because black jeans are black jeans. And jeans with boots is as classic a combination as Ringo Starr and a Mexican accent (see the 1969 film Candy.) Ariat does both really well, by the way (the jeans and the boots, guys, not the Ringo thing). They’re a classic American company with innovative, stylish riding wear, like if Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy was a person.

I like to play Who’s Next for a good old fashioned cabinet boot stomping.

I freaking love these boots, and if I didn’t, I wouldn’t accept the sponsored post, so let’s all just know that. That goes with all sponsored posts. So I saw these boots and thought, awesome, love. But what I didn’t know is that Ariat has deep Equestrian roots. Thus, these boots are super comfy and light and have that Equestrian edge. When I wear them, they make me feel like Betty Draper when she goes riding. If I had her wardrobe, I would also wear the boots with something like this:

Equestrian Betty Draper

J Crew cashmere sweater / J Crew wool coat / Acne Studios black pants / Ariat riding boots / Pearl jewelry, $23 / Hermès triangle shawl / Hermès silk scarve / J.Crew Girls’ stadium-cloth marquee coat / J.Crew Girls’ stadium-cloth bow coat

Until I have Betty Draper (Francis)’s figure and money, I usually pair my boots with black skinny jeans (SUPER skinny, because you want them to tuck into the booths smoothly; my favorite jeans have zippers on the side for maximum sleekness. And they’re just GAP) and a comfy graphic tee, like my SideOne Dummy Records shirt or a David Bowie tee — or my favorite concert tee in the world, the 1985 Phil Collins No Jacket Required Tour that I bought at Cheap Jack’s in NYC in 2005. And over that, I wear a fake fur coat. Or my “BABY IT’S COLD OUTSIDE” sweatshirt from London Loves LA Girls, for my casual look.

Oh hey guys, it’s just me being totally casual, blogging on a typewriter, like casual people do.

And guess what? Ariat has a giveaway going on over on their Facebook page. You could win your very own boots! Check it out here. Ends November 27.

How do YOU wear boots? I’m always trying to pair tall boots with dresses but, like Ringo Starr and a Mexican accent, it just doesn’t work.

I feel a bit odd/high school wearing my regular knee high and calf boots with dresses. So I’ve branched out to Frye booties which did not exist in my youth. Ignorance is bliss.

I like that your tag is a quote from the epic and underrated film Zoolander.

..I thought you were against skinny jeans. Just on men? Double standards, eh? ;)

Ahhhh, I was actually quoting Project Runway. The Santino season, when he kept singing, “lighten up it’s just faaaaashion!”

By skinny, I meant slim fit. But yes, totally. ;)
