WIW: boyfriends and boots

They're not trendy boots, but Angie's post today gave me the idea of trying my white boyfriends rolled up above my brown boots.  I paired it with a more structured shirt, tucked in, and a belt that matches my shoes.

Does it work?

Side note: Am I wrong to think this teal is a good color on me? - no makeup at all, and just out of the shower.  This pic makes me think I need more of this color.

pic #2 is WIW yesterday - not a real winner, but hey - I can't win 'em all, right?

    I agree that teal is a good color for you - get more of it! :-)
    I think BF jeans work with boots but you can also try to roll them once more to make them more tapered. Love that they are white!

    Good call Sveta - I felt like they weren't really tapered enough for this look.  One more roll would probably fix that.  (But then I'd have to shave my legs....)

    Ha-ha! I am sure nobody will notice that in a sliver of skin between the boots and jeans :-)

    Funny, because I had the exact same thought about shaving my legs the other day too :D My boyfriend is very particular you know ;) You look great Amy and yes, get more teal!

    Oh, wow, this is good. Yes, you must wear this colour, it suits you so well. I think you could roll both sets of cuffs more, weather permitting of course.
    I think yesterday's outfit needs a bit of tweaking, that's all. Stompier boots for starters and a roomier sweater but I like the concept of the stripes showing.

    Teal is most definitely a flattering color on you, Amy. Yes… get more teal! Love the plaid shirt with the white BF jeans. Agree with Sveta that one more roll would enhance the look. [I am chuckling about the leg shaving. I decided to wear my own BF's at full length yesterday for the same reason. It was "cuffing weather", but I had forgotten to shave!]

    Teal is good for you and I agree with Sveta the jeans might look even better with another roll - no one will notice your unshaven legs!

  • Emily replied 6 years ago

    Yes, yes yes to #1!  The teal is gorgeous on you.  I really like the boots and rolled jeans together.

    Looking cute Amy!

    What Sveta said. xo

    Looks cute Amy, another one who loves the teal and those white BFs are great. Rolling another roll would be good. Did you try a semi-tuck on the shirt? I'm so obsessed with semi-tucks these days and play around with so many configurations.

    I like the rolled jeans (although I agree with others that they could be rolled a little tighter).  I really like the striped top under the sweater.

    The teal is lovely!
