It’s boot season in San Francisco. So many styles, colors and heel heights to choose from. Paired with skinny legged jeans or a nice chunky wool skirt and tights.
I envy them all.
Here’s my problem. Being a horsey girl if I’m going drop a chunk of change on some pretty boots they should be for riding.
But a pair of boots that is actually used for riding is going to show wear and tear.
So I have to get over myself and purchase a pair, or three, for work.
Shopping in the new Whole Foods in Noe Valley (yes, only 3 short blocks from my house – who’s the lucky girl?) I did a double take the other day.
This woman was wearing spotless Irideon britches and two-tone riding boots.
No one I know has spotless riding gear, so I had to ask. And sure enough she said “Oh no, I don’t ride. But I just love how comfortable these pants are and I wear them everywhere.”
I had to know where she found said gear, not being of the horsey set. We have ONE tack store in San Francisco and she’d discovered it. Tal-Y-Tara Tea & Polo Shoppe is probably better known for its high tea service but what smart cross-marketing!
My search continues. Wish me luck.
