First, let me apologize for the disappearance. As I'm sure many of you are suffering from finals as well, you can understand what a crazy and unpleasant time it is. I do have a few days off, however, and will try to make it up to you!
So, as you are probably stuck in a finals-winter rut like me, you may be having difficulty injecting a little creativity into your winter wardrobe. Well, I'm here to strike you with a little inspiration, this time relating to the winter necessity: brown riding boots. We all have them. We all wear them over our skinny jeans. We all struggle to find any other purpose for them. So, here are a few ideas:
1. Mix femme and edgier pieces: wear your boots with *gasp* a dress! But, keep it cool and collected with lots of layers and a tougher jacket, like an army green utility jacket, just to change things up!
2. As always, mixing prints and textures will never make you feel dull. Try a different type of skinnies with your boots, like this printed pair, and layer on the chunky sweater, denim, and patterned scarf until your outfit is far from basic!
3. Go sleek and sophisticated. These ultra luxe Burberry boots deserve a sleek pair of skinny khakis, crisp white blouse, and camel coat for a very professional and streamlined look. Add a little flare with some fur detail and an oversized clutch.
4. Get festive! Try an unexpected mixture of bright colors and silhouettes, like this burgundy pencil skirt and boxy, patterned, emerald blouse. A more neutral bag and jacket keep it from looking too over the top, while the boots will make the look entirely casual for daytime. Just swap them out for a pair of heels, and you're ready for a holiday party!
