Review: Tory Burch Jolie riding boots

review comment

Tory Burch Jolie riding boot review | see more at @toryburch #toryburch

I’ve been on a the hunt for a pair of brown riding boots since I did a boots purge at the end of last season. These Tory Burch “Jolie” riding boots looked promising in the pictures online and with an extra 30% off during the last ShopBop sale, I bit the bullet and ordered them.

First, let me tell you these boots are a heavy pebbled leather. The quality is very nice for the price – the leather is thick and it looks expensive. And, because the leather is thicker, there were no creases along the calf area (a major plus, especially if you’re going to invest in these!).

The gold Tory Burch logo is small and hits me a little higher than mid-calf.

The sole is well padded and you have the option of taking out the insole and adding your own. The stacked heel is low (~1″) which is great for comfort and will allow you to walk for long distances without any problems.

The full length hidden zipper and inner lining makes putting on and taking off the boot a breeze.

Overall, if you’re looking for an investment pair of leather riding boots, this boot is for you. It’s available in 2 colors (brown and black) and has a wide availability of sizes (5.5 – 11) with wide calf options. The design is classic and the quality is superb which means these boots will last for many seasons!

Measurements: shaft (height) 16″, calf circumference 15.5″, heel 1″.

J Crew grey tie neck sweater |  | see more on #jcrew

GREY TIE NECK SWEATER – how cute is this neck tie detail? I love how an otherwise grey sweater is dressed up with the simple addition of a bow. I tried this on in store but unfortunately, it wasn’t available in my size so I’m anxiously awaiting for it to come in the mail!

OVERSIZED STRIPED TURTLENECK – I love this color combination with the camel and navy! The oversized cut is nice twist on a classic silhouette. I’m also loving this stripe version from J.Crew Factory!

LEATHER RIDING BOOTS – I seem to have a hard time finding leather riding boots without all the trims and embellishments. This one looks like a winner with a low heel and refined design. This one comes in a toffee color and black color. I ordered the toffee – anxiously awaiting its arrival in the mail!

BELTED ZIP TRENCH COAT – how cute is the multidirectional zipper detail on this trench coat? With two closure options (zipper and belt), this coat should make for some unique styling looks. And, it too, comes in 7 colors!

There’s a good reason that the Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots are once of the most popular choices this season. It has a low heel and is more of a riding boot style but also has the benefit of a leg-hugging over-the-knee style. These boots are an investment for your closet but how can you deny the stretchy suede and leather footbed and slip prevention with the rubber sole? If you’re new to over-the-knee boots and want to try out the style to see if it’s for you, or if you want options that are more budget friendly, look at the round up below which starts at $39.99!

Style trend: pocket tunic dress |

As summer is winding down it calls for warmer dresses – especially for those cool evenings. Perfect for the transition of seasons is the pocket tunic dress. I love the versatility of looks for this particular dress. For those hanging onto the warm weather, pair this black and white striped dress with some sandals and a colorful pink crossbody for perfect summer weekend outfit. Looking for a contemporary work outfit? Pair this cooler white and black number with an ikat print scarf and some bright yellow heels. You can transition to the fall by pairing the dress with some leggings and riding boots. A dress that can serve you over multiple seasons – who wouldn’t want that?
