Last spring I purchased a pair of gray military boots on clearance at Claire’s (of all places!). It was love at first sight! The style was just too cool to leave at the store, the price closed the deal.  As much as I loved them, I was not quite sure what to wear them with. They have a worn look, buckles and are a height that none of my other boots are.  When I had the opportunity to work with L.A. Stylist Mom, Bethany Winters for a Remington Red Chair Ready project, I brought the boots along and asked her about them.

I was encouraged by her enthusiasm! She said they are actually very versatile and could be worn with everything from jeans to crop pants, shorts or a dress!  This is my first attempt to style them:

The details:

Sweater: cowl neck short sleeve. I’m not even sure where I got this but in the cooler months, I love to layer it over a long sleeve tee.

Shorts: Forever 21

Military Boots: Claire’s (yes, they sell shoes!)

Cuff Bracelet: Shop Suey Boutique (use code Red20 for 20% off your order)

Mosaic Ring: JewelMint

Nail Polish- OPI Lincoln Park After Dark

When the weather cools even more, I can add tights and a long sleeve tee under the sweater! What do you think of this look? Do you pair boots with shorts? Tell me in the comments below or on Facebook, I’d love to hear from you!
