Wanna know a secret?
Well. It’s actually not really a secret at all….
I’m super duper DUPER single. So the fact that Valentine’s Day is less than a month away means virtually nothing to me because I haven’t had a boyfriend on Valentine’s Day since I was a junior in high school. And that was like, 7 years ago. Can you say #foreveralone?
Even still, the lovely folks at PFI sent over a red pair of boots for me to style that NEEDS to be in your closet by Valentine’s Day. Because even if you’re like me and couldn’t PAY a guy to stick around, you need a gorgeous pair of red cowgirl boots in your closet. Those things will never let you down.
Today’s fabulous boots are made by Tony Lama, which are, hands down, some of the comfiest boots on the planet. Every pair of Tony Lamas I’ve ever put on my feet are insanely comfortable and never hurt my feet, whether I’m out riding, hiking (yes, believe it or not, I have hiked in cowgirl boots…..), shopping, or road tripping. So that’s pretty nifty!
What I love about these boots (other than the color) is the simple stitching near the top of the shaft. It adds a unique focal point to the boot that I think will really elongate and slim the legs. Plus, I love that the bootmakers kept the stitching toward the top of the boot rather than all over the shaft—doing so allows the beautiful dark red leather to take center stage.
I love these boots SO freakin’ much that I went ahead and put together an outfit for each day of the week for them. Because Lord knows you can—AND SHOULD—wear red cowboy boots every single day of the week.
Sundays call for stripes and pretty vests
Whether you’re heading to church or a family picnic, your Sunday could probably use a little spicing up. And red boots should do just the trick! Pair them with a contrasting color (like teal!) and mixed prints to make a big statement.
Get Monday off on the right….BOOT!
Mondays in the office or at school can be quite the drag. But if you’re excited about your outfit, maybe you’ll get a litttttle more excited about turning in that paper or giving that presentation!
Throw on a lace pencil skirt, a pretty printed top, and a red or maroon scarf to coordinate with the boots. A few sparkly accessories won’t hurt either!
Tuesdays call for comfi cardis and laidback tees
Tuesdays are just as bad as Mondays sometimes, am I right? So be kind to yourself by dressing for comfort and cuteness. Soft jeans (if you haven’t tried Celebrity Pink jeans, YOU NEED TO DO THAT RIGHT AWAY), cool graphic tees (this one’s from UPTOP and I love it), and long cardigans are sure to keep you comfy and super duper happy. Pair them with long boho necklaces to play up the look’s boho feel.
Shake things up on Wednesday with FRINGE!
Need a mid-week pick-me-up? FRINGE is exactly what you need! Do I even need to explain why fringe and cowgirl boots are beautiful together?
DIDN’T THINK SO.
Mixed prints on Thursday to get you through the week
This look is perfect for the girls that like to add a little prep to their style. Simple, elegant, refined, and beautiful. Just like these boots. (P.S. This bracelet from 31 Bits would look absolutely PERFECT with these boots!)
Friday means date night!
…..well, if you’re me Friday means pizza and Netflix and sweatpants. But I’m assuming I’m the anomaly here, hence this adorable little number.
But in the event I ever DO convince a guy to go on a hot date with me, especially if it were around Valentine’s Day, THIS IS WHAT I WOULD WEAR. Sundress, flannel, pretty necklaces, and even prettier boots. Perfect for a night of dancing, walking through the city, or listening to live music. (Remember what I said about these being comfy?!)
Saturday, aka the day you don’t feel like getting dressed
After a week of work, school, socializing, and dating (if you’re actually skilled with the whole interacting with guys thing), chances are you’ll just want to lounge around and be comfy when Saturday rolls around. The good news is, these boots are perfect for that TOO!
Throw on a pair your favorite pair of shorts, a cool graphic tee (I’m obsessed with this one from Pebby Forevee), a beanie, and maybe a denim shirt, and you’ll be set for a day of looking super cool and hella comfortable!
Today’s boots are available at PFI Western for $229.99. That’s $20 less than what you’ll find them for most other places, so go right on ahead and treat yo’self! And while you’re treating yourself, comment below (or on Facebook or Instagram) with your favorite look from today. I’d love to know which outfit you’d pair these boots with!
