But I really could use something besides open-toed heals and ballet flats. And I've had two Kohls gift cards burning a hole in my pocket. So, since I had some free time in town today, I went boot shopping. And I couldn't make up my mind, and wasn't sure if either was "acceptable," so I came home with TWO pairs of boots.
So.... Can someone please help educate me? What are the do's and don'ts of boots?
First of all, I don't own skinny jeans. I've got short chicken legs. And I'm a mom. I just don't feel like skinny jeans are the answer. In the picture, I've got straight-leg, otherwise, I've got bootcut. So although the style is to wear them on the outside, right now, I don't know how well that works. I think feasible on the brown pair, but tacky on the black pair. Thoughts?
(For the record I've vacuumed up the tinsel on the ground more than once... stubborn tinsel.)
As far as wearing the pants on the outside, I think the brown pair looks too cowboy boot-ish. But I've always been too chicken to wear heals and jeans. Even though I've longed of being bold enough. But we're making progress... I bought healed boots.
Do black boots go with brown?
Do brown boots go with black?
And is there a certain length of dress that is a must for a boot (pretend I'm wearing nylons... or at least didn't have distractingly white legs)?
Lastly, if I were only to keep one pair, which is the better pair to keep, noting some of the basics of my wardrobe?
