It was, the biggest box under the Christmas tree. Size thirteen, chocolate brown harness boots fresh from the Sundance outlet (and I am sorry, if you don’t have the Sundance outlet in your town).
Alas, despite their astonishing length, they were too small for Erik; he returned them and chose to be present-less in exchange for the thrill of putting some $$ back on the credit card. But in February, when Mary received a miniature pair of the exact same boots for a catalog shoot he went straight to the store and special-ordered a pair in size 14.
If only he could wear a skirt too and fully show them off.
Since then, my westerners make a point to wear their twin boots as often as possible. And as the sun was setting, I finally caught a few frames.
Because it never was about the boots.

That is seriously too, too adorable! Love it!
i didn’t know alyson read your blog! hi aly!.
and I ♥ boots. i’ve yet to own proper, real boots. i’ve had a few fakey, wanna-be boot-type shoes, but real cowboy boots (or girl, as the case may be. or is.), those are still in my future.
your kids are lucky to have such a fabbo photog in their midst, capturing so much of their lives in a beautiful way.
“It never was about the boots” – tells all. This is precious. The synergy between the two of them is beautiful.
I saw that you called. We’re heading up to Park City this afternoon but I’ll try to phone you over the weekend, or early next week. Let me know if you’re up for a run soon! xo
What a cute pair (the boots and their wearers)!
Oh gosh. I love this! And, I would really like a pair of those boots for ME! Is that dorky? Do they make them for women? They are soooo cute on Miss Mary.
So is this the outfit you have been planning..??? LOVE the boots. Glad Erik decided it was worth the splurge..as it is worth more than just the boots.
Don’t daddy’s and their daughters just melt your heart every time?
Pure love. We need to move somewhere where boots are a must have. They feel like such a luxury to me.
As always, astonishing and lovely.
Tasha and I both squealed when we saw you had posted this weekend!
Oh my heart! I think these pictures make me want a girl as much for Jonthan as for myself – it’s just so sweet seeing the two of them together! The boots are icing!
