Talking Riding Boots and street clothes. Yes or no?

Anyone wear their riding boots with street clothes?

So I have some really cute dresses and skirts which I normally wear with sandals, but it is snowing here in sunny California! .

I don't have any 'fashion' boots but I do have a cool pair of Mountain horse boots. I tried them on with a pair of tights and a dress and they look cute...but odd (they looked better when I took my spurs off lol). Do any of you do this....I am hoping it just looks odd cos I am used to seeing them with breeches.

Any advice?

I sometimes wear my paddock boots, but only with jeans.. Lots of people here wear cowboy boots so it doesn't look out of the ordinary.

I ride Western, so I really only wear my boots with street clothes. Half the time my jeans are tucked in and all the world can see where my boot got ripped in half last year and is repatched. Not nearly as attractive as it should be.

I have been known to wear my riding boots with sweatpants when it was cold and rainy outside. I looked so fantastic *sarcasm*. But at least I was really comfy.

I wear my paddock boots with my jeans.I also go in town with my breeches. People probably think I'm wearing spandex pants of some sort though :P

I also have a pair of western boots and I always wore them in town and around although they smelt of urine and manure..now that isn't attractive.

If it looks good, do it! English high riding boots are hardly distinguishable from flat-heeled high fashion boots. The difference is in the toughness of the leather & construction.

Anyone had

Done it a few times. When I went back to class at college at night to do school work after riding horses for two hours, I had my field boots on over my jeans and had some make cat calls, especially when I went outside to have cigarette breaks from long hours with computer. Also when I'd go buy my Marlboro 100's or food at the store over the years.

I wear my cowboy boots with clothes all the time.

I've thought about my field boots. I really have.

I've worn my tall boots during the winter over skinny jeans when I have to run errands (grocery store, walmart, etc) but I usually wear a fleece jacket that has something horsie on it or a big sweatshirt that says ariat or something...LOL!

That is excellent. I have also worn tall cowboy boots over jeans in public. I actually almost punched out someone for calling me gay for wearing my field boots over jeans but would have made me look stupid so I gave him the finger.
