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??


The details: green sweater (H&M) // black pleated skirt (Goodwill) // camo print leggings (swap meet) // sweater boots (Goodwill) // purple stud earrings (H&M) // vintage watch pendant (hand-me-down) // green braided bracelet (handmade)


Before you go, be sure to check out our Thrift Style Thursday facebook group to see what fall boots my fellow thrifty fashionistas are styling this week!

And before I forget, here’s a fun video I made, that may or may not include a cameo of one of my doggies!  ;)


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!! :)
