If you’re ready to step out in style this fall, you’ll want one of the year’s hottest foot wear trends, the riding boot. Why are these boots such big news in the fashion world? Not only are they easy on they eyes, but they’re comfortable to boot. Confused about what to wear them with? Here’s how to wear those ultra comfortable and versatile riding boots.

Wear them with skinny pants.

The most basic, but still sleek and sexy way to wear riding boots is to slide them on over slim jeans in dark denim, or a pair of riding pants with a fall turtleneck or oxford shirt and one of the season’s other “must have” accessories, a thin belt. This look is appropriate for almost any casual outdoor function. Not only will you look chic and fashionable but your feet won’t feel the pinch. The flat heel on riding boots makes them one of the most comfy boots of all.

Wear them with dresses.

 Riding boots can add a whole new dimension to your favorite dress. While you can wear riding boots with a variety of dress types, keep the hem of the dress above the top of the boot, otherwise the look will be formless and unflattering. Try pairing riding boots with a shorter, wrap-around shirt dress for classic look. If you’re in great shape, wear riding boots with a shorter, form fitting knit dress and tights that match your boots. Try layering dresses by placing a sleeveless dress over a long sleeved dress, add a belt and a pair of riding boots for a super chic look. Layering is another key fall fashion trend.

Wear them with skirts

 Riding boots look chic and casual teamed with a skirt and matching tights. Generally shorter skirts look best with riding boots. Be sure you’re wearing tights that match your boots to avoid cutting the line of the outfit as well as giving the appearance of being shorter than you are. One fun idea is to wear riding boots with a saucy, pleated skirt and turtleneck. Hang an oversized handbag from your shoulder and you can welcome fall in style.

 When selecting riding boots choose a pair that fits snuggly against your leg. Riding boots are meant to be sleek and form fitting. They’re a forgiving look if your calves are somewhat less than perfect as they cover them in style. Don’t forget about wearing riding boots with leather and suede jackets for an ultra cool fall fashion look. If you can only choose a single pair of riding boots to add to your wardrobe, you can’t go wrong with dark brown or basic black. Pick up some matching tights and you have instant fall versatility. Have fun exploring the world in your riding boots this fall!

Growing Lentils At Home

Protein; it’s a staple of a basic diet but many people share the common belief that it can only be obtained from meat-based foods and animal-derived products. On the contrary, beans and lentils are a rich source of protein and are considered to be an important part of the vegan diet. So, if you’re looking to grow some protein at home and don’t want to start a chicken farm right away, why not grow some lentils? These are annual crops that grow better when planted in cooler seasons. Here’s what you need to know before you can grow your lentil plants.

Obviously, a single plant won’t nearly be enough and you’ll need around 5 to 8 of them if you want almost a yearly’s supply for a single person. The number of plants you’ll need also depends on your intake and if you lean more towards plant-based nutrition, it’s likely you’ll need more of them.

You can grow lentils in your garden, or if you’ve run out of space in your backyard, you can grow them straight out of pots. As long as the pots are thoroughly cleaned before planting, and have a height of over 8 inches, you’re all set. To prepare, you’ll need to make sure whether they’re treated with an inoculant or not. If they are, then you can move on to the next steps. If they’re not, then spread your seeds over a wide tray and apply some leguminosarum inoculant on them. Wait a whole 24 hours until you plant them; this helps the seeds prepare to absorb nitrogen.

Add loose soil and compost to a pot, and check the pH. Lentils like to keep it basic, so a pH of around 6.5 is preferred. Add a supporting structure to each pot, such as a trellis. Remember that one pot is only supposed to hold a single plant. Plant a few seeds one inch under the soil and keep the soil watered adequately, but not too much. Waterlogged soil has the risk of killing lentil plants, so stay on the drier side and give them plenty of sunshine. Soon, in each pot, you’ll begin to see growths rising upwards. Then, cut off the weaker plants and keep the stronger ones. While doing so, be careful not to damage or disturb the stem or root of the plant you wants to keep.

You’ll need to train your plants to rise upwards i.e. up to the trellis. To do this, you can give a little help by tying a loose thread around the trellis and stem of the plant. Once the plants achieve a height of around 5 inches, remember to add some compost every now and then because lentils love nutrient-rich soil.

Harvest your yield after the plants turn yellow and ripen. You can use some garden shears or hand pruners to chop off the pods, or you can cut the entire plant from the stem. Be careful of aphids attacking your plants, so use some organic insecticide and cleaning up well after the plant.
