The Vintage Boot

There are a few constants in life, and one of them being a pair of sturdy boots. Although many people associate boots with winter wear, after frolicking all summer long in breezy dresses paired with my favorite boots, I think it’s safe to say that they seamlessly work for all seasons. If there was one word to describes my style philosophy,  that would be “Juxtaposition”.  I’m a firm believer in melding  masculine with feminine, hard with soft, and dark with light. Which brings me to my obsession with pairing utilitarian boots with flouncier skirts and feminine dresses.  As I previously talked about HERE the importance of having a pair of black pumps , it’s equally as important in having the right pair of boots in your closet.  Nine West has a great pair of boots called the Turner.  It has the perfect amount of  utilitarian charm with a slight urban flair, encompassing everything that  you need to achieve that downtown effortless style.

You may recall from THIS video that I recently partnered up with Nine West to share some of my top picks for the season. Last time I shared a tutorial on how to style your basic black pump to work, but today i’m going to show you how to style your boots in 3 different ways HERE! Enjoy!

    Dear Chriselle,

    I have a newborn so don’t’ have much time to go to the mall. I really love all the outfits and know you always post links which make is so easy to shop. But you only posted a link for the boots in these and I love all the outfits, so if you get a chance could you post links. Thank-you. Btw where you a model before you did styling. You look great in all the shoots and the photographer is amazing, too. Your sense of style really inspires me.

    I had a similar pair, but I sold it to Crossroads Trading because I never wear them. You look great in them though. I’m so happy to see you do so well with so many brand names. You seriously deserve it!

    I love these looks! You have always done a great job about evolving the different styles you wear, but no matter what style, you always bring in a classy chic element and I love how you have defined that as your style, its totally you! I really like these fall looks, I have always been on the more urban hipster side and these looks TOTALLY <3 fit in on that! LOVE YOU CHRISELLE! love always, Autumn.

    I really think our styles are so similar! I essentially live in boots not matter what season. I love how it adds edge to a cute skirt or denim shorts :)

  • You look awesome in these pictures! I mean, you always do, haha. But the pose, outfits, and your expressions are really beautiful. 😀 I’m a boot and bootie kind of girl too, and it’s sooo nice to hear YOU say that it’s not wrong to wear it however and whenever we want.

  • Awww those boots are cute! Love vintage footwear so much and I too love mixing masculine and feminine styles, it creates more depth and contrasts 😉 have a wonderful weekend!
