This look, the Jill an epic lace-up tall boot that has it all:  style, comfort, and attitude!!!   When the outside temperature drops a bit, it doesn’t mean you have to pack away those dresses.  I’d pair these sexy boots with a feminine, short lace dress and matching thigh-high socks.  Beautifully constructed and soft-to-the-touch, the Jill features full grain leather for just $220.00!


Engineered with style and performance in mind, Harley-Davidson Footwear has beautifully combined classic footwear designs with distinctive detailing.  Just take a look the Auburn.

My favorite part of the fall/winter 2015 collection is when I get to break out my riding boots and leggings. The 14″ Cyndie boot features a gorgeous smokey full grain leather upper with thin dual straps.  For an affordable $200.00,  these slate-colored boots will pair perfectly with a basic top, my favorite statement necklace, and comfy black leggings.
