A few weeks ago I was invited to a press preview to check out Ariat’s new Fall line of boots and apparel for men, women and children. I did a play in Dallas about seven years ago, and before I left, Doc Hubby and I went to a huge boot store to get me some authentic cowboy boots to bring back to the city. I tried on oodles and oodles of pairs. I chose these Ariats because they were the absolute most comfortable and to my mind, some of the prettiest. I feel about boots the way some gals feel about heels. I love my boots. If I had a zillion dollars…and a walk in closet…well you know.
This is a must-have baby, toddler and preschooler product review blog. But every Mama’s gotta have a little bit of the cowgirl in her.
Not to mention every girl. These are the new Fat Baby Flower Boots by Ariat which come complete with “wiggle room” so your little pardner will have room to grow. These amazing pink cowboy boots for girls definitely go from city to country with pizazz, and I know my little fashionista would love a pair for back to school!
And then there are these…sorry I had to pause to wipe the drool off my keyboard. I don’t know what they are called, but I know they will be available from Ariat this Fall and they are divine.
And these. Forgive the blurriness of my cell phone pic. I was trembling. They are just too gorgeous for words.
So. I drooled over adorable and incredibly functional boots for girls, salivated for tooled leather for women, fondled a cowboy boot or two…and then I checked out the line of women’s apparel. Did I mention I lived in Texas for three years when I was a kid? I did. And I still fancy myself a transplanted country girl here in the city. The new lines of Ariat jeans are totally gorgeous. They sent me a pair to try out. I chose the Turquoise Stretch Moonshadow jeans that are available now, true to size, in a long (I love a company that accommodates tall girls who want to wear boots), and I absolutely love them! They have a nice mid-rise to reign in that baby belly but are in no way, shape, or form “mom jeans.” The denim is soft, just stretchy enough, and lightweight. Form fitting around the legs, gentle boot cut on the bottom. And I think they’re kinda hot!
I wore them the first night I got them to meet friends in Tribeca and then see a kinda hip downtown theater production. With plain black boots, a lavender velvet top, and a vintage bracelet I inherited from my grandmother.
Forgive the silly poses and the grainy pics. I was doing my best.
Anyway, Ariat is definitely moving from the rodeo circuit right onto the busy sidewalks. The new styles are gorgeous and the clothes are beautifully made. Hello Mother’s Day! Hear that Daddy? Skip the flowers! Mama wants boots!
Matching cowboy boots for Mama and baby? Yeah, that’s something every gal’s gotta have.
