These Boots are Made For…

Boots! Who doesn’t love ’em? Let’s hear about your favorite pair! What were they made for?

What, you want to see my favorite pair? Okay, be ready to be wowed.

But first! A story.

So, I grew up in the Atlanta area. We don’t really wear cowboy boots in the Atlanta area. Maybe they do now that cowboy boots are in style, I don’t know. But when I lived there, nope.

But, or course, I’ve been a farmgirl in my heart for many years since I first discovered MaryJane. I wanted some cowboy boots! One year, for Christmas my husband gave me some fancy cowboy boots. Not “real” cowboy boots, fashion cowboy boots.

Now, you’ve all seen all the farmgirls in their cute short dresses and their cowboy boots. So one day I was going to a play with a friend. It was a Sunday matinee, so I decided to rock that look. I wore my cowboy boots with a short dress. When my friend came to pick me up, she looked me up and down and said these words to me,

“You look ridiculous.”

I went and changed clothes.

Where I live now? I see that combination every single day. And I think it is adorable.

And now I have waaaaay more than one pair of boots. More than I’ll ever admit to.

Here are the boots I wear daily.

These boots were made for mucking, and that’s just what they’ll do.

These boots were a closing present from the real estate agent who sold us the farm. He gave me a pair and my husband a pair. We had never received anything other than champagne and baskets of fruit and goodies. But muck boots? At that time, I didn’t even know what they were for.

I wear these boots every single day. I wear them to the chicken house. I wear them to the barn. I wear them to the garden. Anywhere that I might get muddy, I wear these boots. There were a fantastic gift for new farm owners. These are the brand MUCK boots and I recommend them highly.

These boots were made for riding, and that’s just what they’ll do.

These are my riding boots. I know, I know. “U!G!L!Y! They ain’t go no alibi! They ugly!” (Learned that little cheer in grammar school.) When I first started riding horses, I had red cowboy boots. They were cute, but my feet ached. My instructor always wore these babies and she finally talked me into getting some. They are divine. They are built for riding and hiking, a perfect combination. These are Ariats. I ride Western, so no fancy shiny knee boots for me when I ride.

These boots were made for dancing, and that’s just what they’ll do.

I adore these boots. I bought them because they match my truck, but soon feel in love with them. They are cute and comfortable and go with absolutely everything. These are Ariats.

These boots were made for looking cute, and that’s just what they’ll do.

My farmgirl friend, Diane, sent me these cute babies. How adorable are these boots! Every time I wear them, someone stops me and asks me about them.

These boots are made for traipsing in the snow, and that’s just what they’ll do.

Here are the boots I wear in the snow. My in-laws gave me these boots years ago, back when I never got to go in the snow. Now they get lots and lots of use. They are warm and snuggle-y and comfy.

I wear these a lot too. I like them because they are fake leather. The flowers are embroidered on the boots. They are some off brand and weren’t expensive at all.

I don’t know what these boots are made for, la la la la la la. Maybe squishing spiders in the corner. Or kicking butt. (I’ve done both in them.)

Have you ever seen some cute boots online and clicked through to see the price and then freaked out? I cannot believe that some cowboy boots cost over $500. I never met a boot that was worth that. Yet.

Take a gander at this one. It’s a Lane boot and is a mere $590.

These boots are made for when you want to look decent when you ride, and that’s just what they’ll do.

Oh, these are my riding boots. I wear them when I want to look decent when I ride. But it is not often that I feel that way. :) I usually wear my UGLY but wonderful riding boots seen above.

These boots are made for combating and that’s just what they’ll do.

Here’s my favorite combat boots. I used to have some Teal colored ones almost just like these, but I absolutely wore them out. These are more fragile, such a light color and linen. Not real great for living on a farm.

Lots of love, The City Farmgirl in the Country, Rebekah

    I just found out that I need new riding boots and I do love my Ariats’ ! Mine look like yours and I have found that they are so comfy. Farm girls love boots. I was sitting here thinking and I have like 10 pair. I do love your red plaid ones though.

    Rebekah..as a life-long country girl I say we must have our boots, but I must object to you calling my fav. pair of Ariats ugly! :) I love, love,love mine but beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. They are light and warm and just make my feet feel beautiful. Thanks for a light-hearted trip down the country road. Nancy Sinatra was singing in my head all the way! Deanna

    I love how many boots you have and how they are all meant for something different! Your dancing boots are my favorite. I obviously have snow boots because of where we live but I only own one pair of nice cowboy boots. They are more of a fancy wannabe cowboy boot! They are sparkling silver with lace and chains. I love to wear them with my leggings and short skirts. They are so fun to wear and make me feel like I am playing dress up.

    My favorite boots are my Doc Martens – they are white leather with flowers painted all over them – they are very comfortable for old arthritic feet..and I wear them everywhere and just love them – my friends not so sure !!!

    I don’t understand women who have multiple pairs of shoes but I do understand multiple pairs of boots! I have quite a collection myself. My current favorite pair a tobacco colored leather pair of Frye square toe harness boots. They go with everything! I do adore boots with skirts, dresses or shorts. I wear boots with everything. In fact, there have been numerous times when my friends asked me if I was going to wear boots to their weddings. Of course I did. I am so glad that those buffalo plaid plastic boots I sent you are such a conversation starter. I know if I saw you wearing those that I would probably stop and take notice. Wear them in health and happiness.

I need to try those Ariats ! Got square toed cowboy boots to ride my horse but not so comfy! Lookin for comfort now! Great post! Toooo funny about your friend telling you ,you look ridiculous! I bet you looked DAMM CUTE !!! Oh well! Anyway! Going to hug and kiss my horses now!! Yeeeeehaaaaw !!!

    Love your boot collection, Rebekah! Each one fits the bill for what they’ll do.
    Now you have me thinking about my boot collection. Let’s see. Well, I have my favorite red cowboy boots that I got this winter. They are red, an off brand and I only paid 19.99 for them. I wear them constantly when I go out, with leggings and jeans. Even some of the New Englander’s love them! 😉 My next faves are my snow boots. They are clunky but fleece lined and I wear the to get the mail, shovel snow, and out to the coop and to take the dogs out, and to the grocery store if I’m feeling like just bummin’. I also have some cute little half-boots in black with a buckle and a low heal that I also love to wear with long sweaters and legging’s or jeans. And finally my polka dotted garden boots that I got at tractor supply. I don’t really own many pairs of shoes. I have boots, flip flops and sandals, but I guess that makes sense for a Beach Farmgirl! Fun post!!! I love all of your boots. You are one prepared farm owner now!
    Hugs,
    Deb

    OH! I forgot all about my other two pairs of boots… I have brown leather cowboy boots with rhinestones on the toe and heals!!! And a sassy little suede half boot in aged tan leather with a big buckle on the side…Okay, I think that’s all of them!
