Happy friday party people!

Looking for a cute pair of riding boots that won't break the bank?
Look no further.

The Bandolino Clotida Riding Boot meets all my requirements for the perfect boot this season. Besides the fact that it's a fraction of the cost of Frye's (I do love Frye boots but I can't justify spending that right now. Now, if they showed up under my Christmas tree...that would be another story), here's what I like about them:

-the cognac color goes with everything (the color is lighter than the picture above. they have black and a two-tone color as well)
-they are 3x more durable than some of my other boots that cost me $50.00, and they look way more expensive than they are. Spend the extra $50.00-it's worth it.
-for those of you that complain about having wide calves...they have this option!
-perfect sized heel. My other favorite boots are flat and look less dressy. The heel on these boots is perfect to dress up or wear with a casual outfit.
-they are so comfortable! I promise. 

*Bonus? You can get 4.0% cash back on these boots by shopping with EbatesI've mentioned this before, but I do all my online shopping with Ebates because you can earn cash back on all your purchases. I'm pretty sure if you're new to the site you get a $10 off gift certificate as well.

What is everyone's weekend plans?

We will be working hard on finishing up our kitchen, but I also have a bachelorette party tomorrow night for one of my good friends and we are taking a pole dancing class (I'm thinking I may need to video tape some of this), and then going out for sushi and drinks after! My only goal is to NOT come out of the pole dancing class with a concussion. It should be pretty interesting to say the least.
And no Billy, we aren't "DIY" and putting a pole anywhere in our house so don't even think about it mister. 



  1. You are a BAD BAD influence!
    Have fun at pole dancing class... I've been to a bachelorette party like that before and it was SO weird for me. haha!

  2. Dear God, those are perfecttttttt! My riding boots starting ripping last fall (damn, Charlotte Russe) and I just now happen to be looking around for a new pair. LOVE that color!

  3. Super cute boots! Pole dancing classes are fun! I went to one with my BFFs for a bachelorette! You should see my money shot! :)


  4. you have nearly convinced me to buy these.... thanks a lot ;-) Like I need another pair of boots!!

  5. I have to have these boots!!! I have never bought a pair of riding boots but this year is going to be the year - these are pefect.

  6. Ummm I think these boots are in my future! I have cognac ones but I need a good black pair! These look perfect. Can't wait for all of the great blog material that is sure to come out of pole dancing class! Have fun lady :)

  7. Dang, those boots are calling my name...So cute!!

    What a fun bachelorette idea! I would much rather do that than go downtown and get shwasted (like my girlfriends and I always seem to do for bach parties)...

    Have a great weekend! :-)

  8. cute..I'm really like the color of these!!! I already have so many boots...but what's one more pair? :)

  9. I'm a HUGE fan of Bandolino! They have super comfy shoes! I may need to invest in a new pair of boots ;)

    And thanks for the reminder about Ebates. I signed up a long time ago and always forget about them! Oh the money I probably could have saved - gah!

    And happy pole dancing! My friends and I have wanted to try this :) You'll have to let me know how it goes. Cheers to no concussions!

  10. Hey girl! I love love love these boots! But all these cute outfit posts have left me poor.
    My Mom bought me a pair of Frye boots, I love them but I like these too!

  16. I love these boots! I just wish it would get cold in Houston. (like that will ever happen!) I don't have the problem of having too wide of a calf muscle... I don't have big enough of one! I have skinny chicken legs :(
