If you're just having a few lessons and doing general riding, I wouldn't go down the tall boot path as yet. I don't know how old you are, but if you're still in your teenage years and still growing, I really wouldn't bother until you stop growing and get into more serious showing.
I have had to go down the path of having both tall boots and gaiters custom made, as I seem to have a weird shaped calf and none of the generic brands comfortably fit me!!

I'm 25 so long done with growing lol, I started riding when I was 12 and always rode western, then when I was 21 I got pregnant so I took off riding until last year, I had played with English in the past and liked it, so back in may when I got my OTTB mare I decided to do dressage, but my balance is not what it used to be so i'm taking some english lessons to get back into shape before I start taking the more expensive dressage lesson, the barn where they have the dressage lessons also has shows, so at that point I will probably start showing on their lesson horses...i think my biggest problem is I have really defined muscular calfs from working at a boarding kennel and walking dogs all day long, but really ridiculously skinny ankles, so I need something that tapers more then a normal boot....

When you show do you have to have tall boots or can you just wear paddock boots with nice half chaps that look like boots?

Haha ok yes long done with growing then!!
I would still probably go for short boots and gaiters/chaps for now while you're learning - less effort needed to 'break them in'!!
I show official dressage locally and at state level, and in Australia you are allowed to wear short boots and gaiters up to medium level dressage. I'm not sure what the ruling is in the US so you might want to check that out with your national equestrian federation. But I would say you'd be fine to wear short boots and gaiters
