Guess who’s bizack! These past few weeks have been crazy (in a good way). I hope you all are settling into Fall. You should all be cozied/cuffed up by now and if you are not, hop to it. Winter will be here before you know it and you do not want to be left out in the cold, literally, without a snuggle buddy. OR you could do like I do and cuddle with your shoes…just a suggestion. Since cooler weather is upon us I thought I’d share some of my favorite riding boots with you all. I hope you see something that inspires you. Let’s start the show!

Burberry “Carington” Riding Boot

Burberry is genius at making pieces that are modern, yet timeless. These boots are a perfect example. They have a half zipper on the inside, so getting them on and off the first few times may be difficult, but they are worth every bit of struggle and every bead of sweat. Pair with tights (cable knit or fleece lined, for warmth), a tunic, and a pashmina for an effortless outfit that looks like you tried really hard.

Frye “Dorado” Riding Boot

So if you know ANYTHING about boots, then you know Frye is EVERYTHING. Honestly, for quality, style, and variation you can’t go wrong with Frye. And before you gawk at the price, I guarantee you they will outlast any other brand out there. These are polished, but still a bit rugged. They would look great with a denim skirt and checked flannel shirt or a sweater dress. Perfectly versatile.

Lucky Brand “Ria” Riding Boot

These are kinda dope. I like the lace up detail on the front, it’s kind of unconventional. The color is really cute too. I haven’t tried these on (the store didn’t have my size), but I had my friend try them on and they were quite nice looking (my words) and comfortable (her words). Because they have an edgier feel, I would pair with skinny jeans and an oversized sweater with chunky jewelry.

This week’s drink is perfect for chilly Fall/Winter nights (whether you’re cuffed or not). Be warn, there is some preparation involved.

Hot Apple Cider
Apple Cider
2 quarts apple juice
1 cup dark rum
1 apple
2 teaspoons whole cloves
1 orange, thinly sliced
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon allspice
Pinch nutmeg
Cinnamon sticks, garnish

Stick the cloves into the apple (stud). In a medium pot, combine the studded apple and remaining ingredients except the rum. Simmer on low heat for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the rum. Discard the apple. Pour into mugs and garnish each with a cinnamon stick (and, optionally, whipped cream). Serve immediately. Enjoy!

Until next time,
