Laredo Keyes Boot Review

When I worked for Boot Barn I bought these Laredo Keyes boot. Everyone who knows me knows my love for snip toe boots. After getting my second pair of Miss Kate Laredo’s I decided that I needed to add another style to my collection. Well with Fourth of July around the corner I absolutely could not pass up these perfect patriotic boots.

They are paired with breathable nylon to keep my feet dry and comfortable. These and Miss Kate’s do not too many differing factors except the outward style. They are constructed exactly the same for the interiors.

Pricing of these boots depending on where you buy them is $140-$160 US

I’d Have to say my favorite feature of these boots are the cut out of stars on the toe of the boot. Pair them with your favorite boot bracelet or on their own, these boots are meant for the American Cowgirl.

FIND THEM HERE!!

Just as the Miss Kate boots have a Dan’s Post look alike these do as well. The difference between Dan’s post and these Laredo is quality and price point. The Dan’s Post Liberty boots are roughly about $270 and can be found here.

Dinosaurs and Fern Clyffe Waterfall

I don’t see my sister to often, but this year I surprised her by visiting her for her 30th birthday. Sara had been calling me multiple times in the weeks prior to her birthday really saddened about her birthday. She was telling me how she felt forgotten, because people had made other plans the week of her birthday. So when Garon (Sara’s hubs) messaged me to ask if I could make it home for her birthday, I without hesitation said yes.

We have always been pretty inseparable. So much to the point everyone always thought we were twins, which we kind of are in a way. Sara and I are what they call Irish Twins. We were born pretty close.

Sara always raved about her adventures of the beautiful Fern Clyffe waterfall in the Shawnee hills of Southern Illinois. “There are rocks as big as houses, and you can climb inside the waterfall from the bottom and the top.” She would describe.

We had went there a couple of times when we were younger, but I had lost these childhood memories in a car accident when I was a teen. Many of my childhood memories are gone, unless there are pictures I don’t remember much.

So while I was home to see her for her birthday, we took a trip even further south to hike the beloved Fern Clyffe. Sara would light up with joy showing her husband some of the awesome cliffs. Garon is talented photographer and cinematographer in the St Louis area and Sara knew that he would love the opportunity that laid in the Shawnee hills. And love it he did. We explored the caves, rocks, and creek. We took our time and just enjoyed the time together.

The waterfall was dried up, so this gave us an opportunity that Sara had not yet had. We hiked to the top of the waterfall and laid on the spout of the falls in the sunshine. Garon pulled out his handy drone and took some fun shots of us from an aerial view.

I really do miss my sister and spending her 30th birthday with her, was the best day I could ask for. I call my sister at least 3 times a week just to chat. Sometimes we chat about our Etsy businesses and sometimes we chat about the ups and downs of the week. It is hard being away from her, but hiking with her for her birthday brought my heart so much joy. I will impatiently wait for the day where we hike together again.
