Savin' Maven Monday: 1 Boot, 7 Ways...

Hello and happy Monday my dears. I hope each of you had a very well rested yet productive weekend.
I've been on Spring Break for the last 9 days and I can NOT for the life of me get myself together today. I'm beginning to think that I need to figure out a way to make 'full time' money from my shop because punching the clock isn't it for me. My Spring Break really allowed me to hone in on my passion and what it is that truly makes me happy-fashion and saving money.
My Mother told me that when I'm doing that which I love without having or needing to be paid for it, the very thing that doesn't feel like work, then I know I've found my passion.
Now I have to begin to make it work for me.
Enough of the philosophical drama, lets get down to what you really came here for.
About a week or so ago, I introduced you all to a new series, called Budget Style Tips, that I would feature here on Monday's when I didn't have a DIY project.
So here's Tip #1...
1 Boot, 7 Ways
I'm such a fan of making the most out of my wardrobe and maximizing what I have.
These boots were a costly (in my opinion, because you all know that I'm frugal) investment for me so I promised myself that I would wear these babies until the soles fell OUT!!
I love that these Arturo Chiang riding boots are somewhat neutral in color, allowing me to mix and match them with lots of different colors, patterns, and silhouettes.
What I love even more is that if I had a vacation or roadtrip to go on, I could pack this here pair of boots and be set for a whole week. I was able to successfully style 7 different outfits using one lone pair of boots. These boots alone prevent the need for extra carry on bags containing useless garments of clothing-now that's what I call an investment piece.
Being that this style of boot is a classic piece and won't be going out of style anytime soon, I am even able to pair them with skirts, dresses, and cutoffs. Maybe I'll try that for my next Budget Style Tip assignment.
Until then, here are 3 of my favorite styled outfits using this riding boot.
My Obsession With Pink Pants...

Pretty Lace and Green Baubles...

Equestrian Flair...
What one 'remixable' item in your closet would you take with you on a 7 day vacation?
I can't wait to hear from you.
Thanks for reading!


  1. I'd have to say that I can remix the mess out of a dress. Throw something on under it, over it, make it look like a skirt, make it look like a blouse, etc.

    Your last outfit is giving me all types of preppy vibe! Love it!

    1. I can't wait to remix my dresses! Thanks for visiting Ianiza!

  2. Great boots! Certainly must have made packing a lot easier!

  3. I LOVE having a pair of boots like this!!!!!!! I'd take my fave pair too!

    1. These boots have been so good to me!! I don't know what I'm gonna do when they get all worn out!
