Ride 'em Cowgirl

A few things...

1. I grew up in Atlanta but do not consider myself "Southern".
2. With the exception of Dolly, I do not enjoy country music.
3. I love these boots even though they have a sad story attached to them.




I acquired these beauties in late '07. My father and I went by a yard sale that his friend's soon to be ex-wife was holding in their front yard. There was all sorts of crap laying about on the yard. Old toys, books, dishes, etc. This couple was selling everything and going their separate ways. The wife looked tired and was anxious to get rid of everything. I browsed around and saw these boots, tags still attached. I would never buy cowboy boots on my own but I figured that they would be a good staple to have. I slipped them on and they fit perfectly. She let me have them for free. I wear them under jeans, I don't do the cowboy boots and dress thing. It's been done, it doesn't look right on me (too hipster), and I hate it. But the old fashioned way I love. Just like the cowboys do it.
