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.
