I am so excited to share with you my Bristol boots I’ve kindly been given by Ariat for our collaboration. 

One of my favorite things in the world is spending time with my daughter at the barn where
she rides English style. She is almost ten, and have been riding for a year & a half now. There is no other place that’s more relaxing for me. I believe horses are good for the soul.

It’s definitely a family affair for us going to her riding school, spending time with various horses during her lessons, read about breeds dreaming of her future horse, and help her tack & untack. Even my four year old helps by carrying the buckets, and grooming supplies.


Ariat has also been in our life since the day my daughter started riding. After a lot of research on my part, ( no surprises there 🙂 I love googling and information ) we started off her riding apparel collection with Ariat boots, and never looked back. The company has been designing top notch, innovative footwear for the best of the equestrian world since 1993, and the brand has a wonderful reputation for setting the standard for high performing, well made riding boots.

Have you heard of Ariat equestrian apparel? Have you seen their fashion footwear?

Lucky for us fashionistas who have never been on a horse ( Well would you count a wine country tour on a horse? Led by the super patient handler at all times I must add. 🙂 ) but secretly wish they had a chance to dress the part, ( one of those girls would be me- it’s the classiest look who can blame us? ) Ariat is no longer just a performance brand. They also have an equestrian-inspired fashion footwear line that has the same authentic feel of their riding boots with a lot of quality, comfort and a TON of style.


When I saw the Bristol boots from Ariats Fall 14 collection, it was love at first sight. It’s truly everything I’ve been wishing for this season. Bristol is perfectly rugged but still has the English refinement. It’s so very well made of such high quality, soft leather, has the loveliest shine, and features gorgeous hardware.

The boots have an amazing, like walking on cloud, comfort that couldn’t be matched thanks to ATS technology. They also got the best reception from my daughter. She was so happy to see me in them.

I’ve browsed through other styles in Ariat’s Fall 14 fashion footwear collection, and really appreciated how the brand took inspiration from the vintage English & Western styles, and made them contemporary. The designs have modern details like distressed leather blended with classic details such as the boot’s hardware. The outcome is very cool, and unique.


Look at my beauties. <3 I love the color, perfect fit, the heels, and that smooth, stunning leather. The skilled craftsmanship on Bristol can’t be missed.


Style Tip: For me Bristol is the ultimate multitasker boots. At home I’ve already created so many outfits with my new boots. Both in fall, and winter, I’ll wear them with leggings, skinny jeans, full skirts, and dresses. These boots will me with me picking up my kids, going shopping, even date nights, and I love that with different outfits they serve a multitude of purposes.

For today’s look I paired my Bristol with a grey legging, on trend funnel neck sweater, (both from ZARA) and my favorite pieces of jewelry. I loved that the boots held their own at the barn in the morning, but were also perfect for our Sunday brunch afterwards. This is the kind of versatility I need in my closet.


I think my horse friend approves!



The attention to detail is second to none in these boots. I love the Ariat logo on the soles.




How would you style my Bristol boots in an outfit? I would love to know.

  • Honestly, I envy your life lol I used to train horses both English and Western. I miss those days dearly. Your land and photos brought back so many memories, and LOVE the photo of the horse! How would I wear these? When wouldn’t I wear these?! I like the way you have worn them with the leggings, tucked into jeans, with a skirt, and so on. These ARE quality boots, none other like them.

    • You used to train horses? How amazing! My daughter would have loved to hear all about that. You are too sweet! I wish the land was ours 🙂 it’s the stables where my daughter rides <3 You are so right! The boots are really high quality, and I wish you the best of luck with the giveaway lovely! XOXO, Elif

  • Cheryl

    Ariat is a new brand to me- will definitely check them out. Love your boots! I received a fall/winter style maxi skirt as one of my surprise items from Golden Tote, and I think it would pair nicely with the boots.

    • Cheryl haven’t thought of maxi’s! Great idea; the boots would look great both with a maxi dress or a skirt. They actually have shorter versions in their fashion line that would work as well for that purpose. Definitely worth checking out 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • Johanna

    I have always been a huge fan of Ariat boots.. in my teens I used to ride several times a week and worked on a horse farm (ah the good ol’ days). I was on my feet for hours, and my Ariat paddock boots were extremely comfortable, not to mention durable. Not only are they perfect for riding, but they even pair well with a pair of cute jeans for going out…

    Would love to win these! 🙂

  • As a girl who grew up riding, I’ve always been a huge fan of Ariat boots! The quality and comfort are really hard to beat. I think it’s wonderful that you introduced your daughter to horses early – they really are good for the soul and always kept me out of trouble. =)

    I hope you are having a great week so far!


  • Hi Elif thanks for hosting this giveaway. You look great in this outfit. I live in boots and leggings or skinny jeans for the fall. I like your boots in black. The Ariat boots look sturdy & well made. I’m sure they would last for a lifetime. Have a great weekend! #SITSSharefest
