This week I'm addressing the questions that came from last week's post regarding how to wear boots, leggings, etc. So you'll see some pics, too.
But first, I want to announce last week's winner of the leggings....drumroll.....
Also, before we head into the day's discussion, I want to say a big thank you to Ruth for reminding me (in an ever so gentle way) that I never went and commented on the "looks" that you all did for Amy's homemaker's challenge. I am sooooo sorry about that and I am writing it down right now to make sure I do that over this weekend. I want to honor all my committments and I didn't do that for that, so I will do that in the next few days. Please forgive me.
And so now for some answers to questions about how to wear boots and leggings and so forth.
First of all, I am loving my boots. I have worn them most every day and NOT with leggings I might add. I really was going to get a pair but I'm not sure I'm going to do that. I really think I may be past the age limit....for me. I have seen some beautiful mature women wearing leggings but they were shorter than I am and their legs were thinner too. Now don't get me wrong, I think my legs are just fine, but I'm 5'11" so things are not as long on me as they may be on the average height for women so I tend to look a bit like I'm trying to pull off a look that just doesn't work for me.
I think it's one of those things that if you look in your full length mirror and you really just are not sure, then don't.
Take a look at some pics on how to wear boots and leggings:
I only recommend this look for someone who looks like this in leggings...get my drift? Otherwise, the shirt is too short, but for someone who has this kind of style and figure (and age) it is a good look.
Now, many of you asked about boots for heavier calves. Well I have found your solution! I am thrilled when I have good news AND good buys for you. Take a look at these styles below (and there are A LOT more where these come from!)
All of these fabulous wide calf boots come from this store. It is called Woman Within and they have a HUGE selection of boots for wide calves. And most of the boots are on sale now, too! What a find! Check it out!
So now take a look at pictures of some women who are not so skinny, perhaps have a little fluffiness (or a lot) and who still look awesome in boots...here's some ideas for you, actually, a lot of ideas...I just coudn't stop with the pics!
I love this look, BUT, the top needs to be longer, perhaps just a few inches above the knee, but you can see how great a long scarf looks with this look.
Good look, but could be a bit longer depending on your fluffiness level.
And finally, some pics of some short boots with outfits:
And so, our boots and leggings feature for this season! I hope you liked what you saw today and are inspired to try something new!
