I saw the Simone over the knee boots for the first time last Friday and just about bought them on the spot. I did end up talking myself out of it, but I'll have you know that they are #1 on my splurge list this fall (if I ever do end up splurging on anything)... I'm crossing my fingers TB has a friends & family sale, ASAP.
I'm loving the elastic detail and back zip on the Newton booties. They remind me of my old equestrian boots I used to wear riding almost every day. They look adorable with a pair of rolled up jeans, don't they?
