My new boots–Dawson, in turquoise and brown.

By Julie Preble, Assistant Editor

What is the one thing that can brighten almost any cowgirl’s day? The arrival of a new pair of boots?it certainly made my evening yesterday!

As part of my job, I produce H&R‘s monthly Style page. While perusing a catalog for ideas, I came across a cute pair of boots. I did some research, found out they were from Lane Boots, and contacted the company for more information.

Shortly after I discovered Lane Boots, I had the pleasure of meeting Justine, who works for Lane, at the Denver market. She was a great help when I was looking for those boots, and now a friend. That’s the best part of market for me?meeting the people I’ve worked with for the Style page.

Not only did I make a new friend, I was also introduced to a pretty awesome fashion-boot company. After seeing their full line at market, I was hooked!

Now, I absolutely love getting mail (particularly when it’s not bill-related!), and I especially love getting packages. Even when I know it’s coming, it’s still exciting. That’s exactly how I felt when I picked up my new boots last night.

I’ve got some big plans for these boots, and I can’t wait to start planning outfits around them.

What kind of outfit would you pair with these boots?

Also, be sure to look for some Lane Boots in the upcoming April issue!
