ostuffnfluff asked: Hello, Ms. Birnbach! I'm so glad I found your blog. :) I found the Official Preppy Handbook when I was a high school senior. I have a question about a pair of Aigner riding boots that were given to me as a gift. I really adore them, but I really have no idea what to wear them with. Thank you!

Hi Ostuffnfluff,

I’m glad you found me too.  Aigner riding boots are a great gift.  You can wear them with jodhpurs (natch), jeans, leggings.  (Preppies do not wear jeggings.)  (I even hate to write the word.) I’m afraid you wrote this to me during the past brief winter.  I’m sorry I missed this.  Take good care of those boots — boot trees and polish — and bring them out again in the fall.
