Black.patent.leather. When I’m wearing it, I feel like my style rating doubles automatically. You can be sleek and sophisticated one minute, yet urban chic another. I’m not sure I would have sought out black patent leather riding boots if I had not seen my friend Ana with a very cool pair from Zara. I went on a mission and found my own pair at Piperlime. After several wears, I’m still swooning over them. They are quite possibly my favorite purchase of the season. They are perfect for my metro commute (before switching to heels at work). They are waterproof. They are warm (microfur lining). They are comfortable. They are perfect for skinny jeans on the weekend. They are perfect for a football game. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect.
