Sweater Boots + Camo | Thrift Style Thursday

November 20, 2014

Hello, friends!  Another Thursday, another Thrift Style Thursday!  Today’s theme is “Fall Boots,” a personal favorite of mine because I am somewhat completely boot-obsessed!  It’s actually a bit of a running joke that I DO NOT need another pair of boots (but that doesn’t mean I can’t look at and admire every pair of boots in every store I see, right?  Right??).  I joke, but, seriously, at last count I think I had 17 pairs of boots and counting…  You can’t blame a girl, can you?  ;)

In an effort to curb my boot habit, I recently decided that I could only bring a new pair of boots into my closet if I got rid of an old pair.  Case in point: these new sweater boots are replacing an old pair of sweater boots that had started to get a little ragged.  The cherry-on-top is that I actually thrifted these brand new sweater boots from a local Goodwill for a mere $10!  Now I call that a win-win!

With fall weather finally in full swing here, I have been totally indulging in all of my favorite cozy fall apparel – sweaters, leggings, oversize everything – it’s been great!  This outfit is a bit of a mish-mash, but it was seriously comfy and fun to wear.

I have to confess, however, that I had the most difficult time trying to figure out accessories.  I must have tried on nearly every necklace and bracelet I own before settling on the vintage watch fob pendant and a handmade bracelet.  I kept it simple, but I am still not sure I am completely happy with the results.  Help a girl out, how would you have accessorized this look??

As always, thanks for reading (and watching)!  Love & sweater boots, Kristi :)

    I love your boots! And I totally spaced and did coats today – now I can’t remember which one we said we were doing, lol! Oh well, at any rate, I seriously love your boots. I have wanted a pair like that for ages so you just reminded me to start looking for some again!

      Uh oh, maybe I did the wrong theme and it should be coats today haha! Oh well, it all works out!! ;)
      Thanks, Beth, I love these boots, they are so comfy, although more stylish than functional in cold weather. :)

    I have some camo leggings too, but I find them hard to style. I like the ease & flow of this look.

      Thanks, Carmen!! It can definitely be difficult to style patterned leggings, but I think pairing them with simple dresses or skirts and tops like this look is easiest! :)

    Those boots look so comfy! What a great find! And they are so fun paired with the camo leggings. As for accessories, I’m all for bold – I think a clear crystal statement necklace with a simple black bracelet would have looked awesome or even keeping your same accessories and adding a bolder chandelier earring of some sort. It looks great the way you have styled it too. :)

      Thanks, Erika!! I was thinking some sort of black and crystal statement necklace would have looked cool, too, but I don’t have one haha! ;)
      Thanks for the suggestion!! :)
