Would these boots be a crazy frivolous waste of money and could I do better for less?
My theory about cowboy boots is that they suit nobody- unless you are going to a rodeo, linedancing lessons or your dh is a cowboy. I would especially not pay 'that' price for cowboy boots. However.....your second choice of footwear is wonderful. Those boots are a lovely colour and would go with anything! Only thing I would beware of is fitting. Now I don't know what shape, size etc you are but if your calves happen to be on the bigger side, through fat or muscle then you 'may' have problem with those boots. I have quite a big calves and although they don't 'look' big generally...i find it very difficult to get knee high boots that fit. Great boots though!
I have to disagree with all of what CL said. The first boots are gorgeous and would look great with many things. Also the second pair seem to have a decent size calf. They look too big in that way for me anyway.
Boot MOT v.important. Be sure to stuff ur boots with plenty of socks when not in use to reduce the creases. Worn heels and unfashionable scuffs are not a good look either. I'm sure u could delegate boot polishing to your kids as a chore. Just make sure the boot polish is neutral or matching. Keep away from heat and pets too.
