RED BOOTS.........................................





I purchased MY FIRST pair of cowboy boots at 65 years old.....and they had to be RED!


You might be curious why a woman of my age would be purchasing a pair of cowboy boots.....first of all....they are extremely comfortable and warm.  Second....they make me smile each time I wear them...and third....We  live in Montana and Arizona.

We have been having some very cold weather here as of late and I have finally gotten loads of use from them.

I wear them with long skirts as well as jeans and slacks....and the RED is perfect for making a little statement with any outfit.

Went to the Arabian Horse Show this week with a friend....walked around all day ....and my feet felt great at the end of the day.

Don't know why I waited so long to purchase a pair!  (O:

Oh....BTW.....the first picture is the front of a card a very dear friend sent me....she suffers from boot envy!!!  LOL LOL ......at least that is what she tells 
me.  The card could not have been more PERFECT.
I think everyone should own a RED pair of boots or at least a RED pair of shoes....they DO put a little more pep in your step!!

hugs,

Jo

  1. Good for you! It's never too late to fulfill a desire. Now you just have to buy a beautiful red cowboy hat to wear with them :-)

  2. I used to wear cowgirl boots all the time. Then I broke my ankle and had screws put in. Now they rub and hurt. Makes me so sad. I love your red ones. Great color and you're right - they do add a spring to your step.

  10. I only have ever missed two pieces of clothing in my life.
    One with my layered dancing dress (fully layered skirt that flowed out when spinning) AND my cowboy boots. I was like you and wore them constantly. People have said I'm too old for that now but ha-ha I can use you as my perfect example ;-)

  11. Dearest Jo...
    You are living my dream, lol! You go girl! Every woman should have a pair of red cowboy boats. Many years ago, I met a woman in Portland, Oregon named Patty that had a red pair of cowboy boots and I instantly fell in love with them and her...she was a force to be reckoned with, lol. We'd dress up and go to the Blues Clubs to listen to the music and dance and she'd always wear those boots...she could light up a room with them. You just managed to bring back some long forgotten memories of wonderful times. Wear those red boots till you wear them out, lol!!
    I bet you'll have great times in them too. Great Post by the way and love the way the look!

    Radiant Blessings,

  14. Why not have a pair of red cowboy boots at 65..that is when we have the real confidence to wear them.
    My daughter wears them all the time in Switzerland.. especially during the winter.
    Can't buy them here.. but I would have a pair Jo..
    Enjoy them..

  15. They are absolutely smashing
    that is all my late husband ever wore.

    He said they were the most comfortable
    shoes he ever had.

    Red is a power colour
    and makes such a bold statement

    Red is beautiful
    just like you.

  18. Love them! Yes, it has been quite chilly here lately, but looks like temps are finally on their way up. I am ready for summer!

  19. Love them. I too purchase a pair of red cowboy boots with white star cut outs, no less. I don't wear them much but just knowing they are in the box on my shelf makes my sixty something soul brighter.
