Adventures in Katniss Boots

Yep, you read that title correctly. I recently bought a pair of brown lace up boots to wear for Halloween when I dressed as Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games.Β I believe I hinted in my post about halloween costumes (https://adventuresinpolkadots.wordpress.com/2014/10/20/adventures-in-halloween-costumes/) that I would be dressing up as Katniss.

I was a little skeptical as to how much I would actually wear the boots. And then I started wearing them all the time. I have always nursed a healthy disdain for brown items — clothes, shoes, purses. But with the purchase of these Target specials, my world has opened up. I have been using and loving a brown Kate Spade for weeks now. These boots were such a hit that my mom got a pair and so did my aunt and cousin! We all wore them for Thanksgiving. So in this picture, you get the boots styled FOUR ways.

These brown boots have been on so many adventures with me — Georgia, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and today, they made it to the office!

I thought this was the perfect opportunity to write a post about how to style these boots.

Here’s some ideas:
1. Don’t be afraid to pair them black!

2. They can be a great partner to color in a fall/winter outfit.

3. They are great with dresses. I think they give the whole look a slightly softer, more laid back look.

4. When in doubt, you know they work with jeans…

5. Don’t forget plaid. You can never go wrong pairing these boots with plaid!
