Sorry riding boots. It's been real, but I think it's over. It's not you, it's me...and my heart now belongs to ankle boots.

Jk, jk. I could never give up completely on my favorite riding boots (which just happen to be the Madewell Archive boots pictured above), but ankle boots are just so easy! Easy to slip on, easy to find the perfect fit (I don't know about you but I probably tried on about 30 pairs of riding boots before I found some that fit my short little legs), and overall they're much cheaper!

Can I just share with all of you how much I love these Old Navy Strappy Ankle Boots (so much so that I got them in both brown and black)! They're amazingly comfortable...and the best part is, they're less than 10% the cost of the Rag + Bone version! Seriously, it's a no brainer!

What are you leaning towards this fall...ankle or riding boots? Have you found any new favorites yet?

xoxo,

  1. I'm right there with you re: the riding boots thing. I love them but they're kind of a pain to pull on and off. Ankle boots are way easier and they look a little fresher and hip. LOVE both Old Navy options and the Target one too! Decisions, decisions...

  2. Love this post! It's great to know that there are similar designs at a more affordable price tag :)

    And yes, I agree about ankle boots. They definitely take less effort than riding boots, although I do love both!

  9. Wow! Such steals. Those first ON booties are SO cute! I don't need either kind of boot this season, but I wouldn't say no to a pair of oxblood ankle booties :)
