In today’s Marina Monday post Marina shares the chicest alternative to heels: flat riding boots!


I’ve been getting a little burnt out on heels lately.  When I’m having a super-busy week and running around from meeting to meeting, heels just aren’t an option.  Instead, I turn to my favorite flat shoe: the riding boot!

A riding boot is a classic alternative to heels that’s always in style.   Whether I wear mine with jeans, leggings, or even a day dress, I always feel just as pulled-together as I would if I were wearing heels.



The latest addition to my collection is this fab pair from Loeffler Randall (clearly I didn’t stop at just boots…hehe)!  The ever-so-slight wedge heel gives them a ladylike edge, and I’m obsessed with the reddish-brown color.  Right now I’m wearing them over my skinny jeans, but I can’t wait to pair them with light denim cutoffs when the weather gets warmer!  You can grab a pair here.





Want some more riding boot outfits?  Try them with jeans and a button down/pull over sweater combo, with a pleated knee-length skirt and a fitted blazer, with a mini skirt and oversized cable-knit sweater, or with leggings and a menswear button down.  See?  They’re perfect with pretty much anything!
