My Best Investment


Want to know what I think every girl should invest in?  Nope, it's not a white dress because you can find one anywhere.  It's not a statement necklace because you can grab a cute one at Forever 21 for under $15.00.  Well, what's left in this outfit?  You guessed it...my boots!  Some of you might be rolling your eyes right about now or clicking your way onto another blog. I am okay with that, but I am sticking to my guns on this one.  


Ladies, you do not have to be from the South, live on a farm or know how to two-step to rock a pair of cowgirl boots.  My only suggestion is to invest in a quality pair that will last you for years to come.  I promise, whether you believe it or not, you will wear them more than you think.  Something about slipping on a pair of boots makes me feel a little sexy and sassy...and that doesn't happen very often {the sexy part}.

You can wear them a million different ways {here} and {here} and add your own twist to finish off the look.  Out of everything I own in my closet, my Lucchese boots are by far my best investment and if that makes me a Country Bumpkin, so be it.

Dress:T.J. Maxx (old)  | Boots:Lucchese | Necklace and Ring:Forever 21| Earrings:My wedding gift from Ross               

Doesn't this picture make you want to buy a pair just so you can kick up your boots?  



I also wanted to share some quick pics from my date night with Ross. We went to see Alan Jackson Friday night.  I have been a huge fan for years. So, I was pretty pumped to finally get to see him "live" and he didn't disappoint. If I haven't mentioned this before, I love country music {really, most any kind of music} and love it even more when it's live. Needless to say, we weren't feeling too hot on Saturday morning.  Let's just say the $4.00 pints got the best of us.

 
What has been your best investment related to clothing?
I know we all play favorites to something in our closet.

Cheers a little "Boot Scootin' Boogie"!


Today I am linking up with these fine ladies!

Morgan Stone said...

AGREED! I bought a pair about 4 years ago, and I still wear them... or I did before I moved to Boston. I don't know how acceptable the style will be here, but I'll find out this summer :) Have a happy Monday!

Amy said...

Looks like you guys had a blast! I'm not a huge country music fan but I have always liked Alan Jackson. I put a link to your blog on mine today!

I love the background in these photos! It's so summery with the white dress. I have not graduated to full-on cowboy boots, but I do have an ankle pair. I think that is as far as I dare go in Jersey...haha.
And today I officially begin my month-long spending freeze. I found a pair of mint jeans and now I am done for the next thirty days.

Girl you know I agree with you on this one!! :) I love my 3 pairs with everything in me lol! I have "shit kickers", a nice pair, and a pair of red ones that I always wore to Alabama football games when I was a student there! Happy Monday!

TheTinyHeart said...

Your boots are the perfect accessory to your pretty white dress! I think cowboy boots look so cute and I'd totally get a pair if I lived in the South. Living in Jersey it's not really something you see people wear.

The boots are definitely sexy!! Thanks for a great date babe!!!

Kate @ Daffodils said...

Ive had my cowgirl boots since I was 16 and wear them several times a wekk. I agree that they are a staple!

Fashion By Alicia said...

So cute!

Jill said...

You are a doll! I love a good cotton white dress and that necklace is just fabulous!

JMc said...

Totally agree! Boots are a must have. I got some two years ago on a whim before going to a Carrie Underwood concert with my BFFs. I was made at myself for spending so much on a pair of shoes I'd only wear once or twice but I was wrong. They were definitely worth the price!

The Sweet Life said...

I completely agree! I found such a great deal for some cowboy boots on eBay recently. They really can be work year around and theyre so versatile!!! I do love your statement necklace though. Where did you get it??

EverythingPrettyGirls said...

A sundress with boots is by far my favorite look... so feminine BUT rustic. You look amazing... i really love, love, love this outfit. AND, that concert looks amazing. I have to see that my greatest investment has been a pair of boots too.

Super cute!! I can't wear boots :( My feet have high arches and they won't slip into them. Sad right?

I've always wanted to see Alan Jackson - fun!

Erica [pocket full of chuckles] said...

umm i totally agree with you! great boots go a long way!

Laura [Beauty & the Beard] said...

that last picture of you kickin' up your heels is way too cute!! love the boots- i've been in search of a good pair for a long time- now you've inspired me to make it happen!!

TaraMixandMatch said...

You look so, so pretty!

Girls Love Fried Pickles said...

Girl, as we say in the south, you are sexier than boots on a duck!

Sugarr2518 said...

Your outfit is too cute! The boots really do complete it though. I can see how boots could be a staple in any wardobe, but I can't say that I have a pair of cowgirl boots. I was seriously debating about buying a pair about 2 weeks ago though. I'm sure the day will come when i own a pair! Happy Tuesday:)

Heather said...

I love everything about this outfit - love the dress, love the necklace and love the boots! You look so cute and gorgeous!

Awww, you and your guy are adorable!! And I LOVE you in that white dress and cowboy boots combo. So cute!

I had a pair of cowboy boots for years and finally started wearing them last spring. They were a cheap pair from Target and as soon as I decided I loved them, the heel broke off! =/

Bonnie said...

You are so right -- Every girl needs a white dress. They can literally go anywhere and do anything.

Preach it, girl! Power to the boots! I couldn't agree more about the great feeling (like a natural woman) they provide. Makes me feel like giving a sermon.

I absolutely love your blog! It's so inspiring and creative!
