two looks, same boot

by Carlina

I love boots, they seem to pull a look completely together, chic-ifying it so to speak. I actually have about six pairs of boots that I actually wear- short ankle, tall leather, cowboy, riding.... Whether it's spring or winter, I can always make boots work! But I do have a favorite pair, my Franco Sarto riding boots, have been with me for over four years, and I still manage to get a few, "where did you get those boots?" here and there. Surprising since our fashion economy always craves the latest and greatest in trends. I will probably continue to wear these guys until my feet no longer can fit into a seven and a half, ie. hopefully never!

The first photo was taken in Seattle, at the infamous Pike Place. It was cold as hell, (from a California girl's standpoint) hence the 'I don't wanna show my teeth, because my teeth will freeze' smile. The photo was taken by a StreetStyle photographer named Kelly June. I was pretty flattered, I have never been approached to photograph my style! You can check out the post here.

The second photo was taken at a Treasure Island Wine Fest. That was so much fun! Free flowing wine, the Blue Angels flying overhead, the San Francisco skyline, it was picturesque! The only change I would have made- a little more sun would have been nice! Great, great day overall!
