Back to Basics Bootcut Boot Camp

One of the most classic outfits I've worn in a long time! Pulled these bootcut jeans out of the closet and decided to give them a spin while I'm still off work, so I can experiment. I was still craving some flair, so I reached for my trusty suede Malcom Reynolds trench. I have been using my new white bag all week, so I also pulled out my old cream dalmatian print ponyhair booties, which have not seen the light of day since I left the bank.

One interesting struggle is that, since I'm more inclined to leave off necklaces right now, it's much harder to carve up my upper torso and stay covered up. I feel more topheavy than usual in the photographs here, and I think that's why. I'll have to try one of my bras that minimize "the girls" a bit more and see if that looks better with the crew neckline.

Overall happiness factor was very high in this, though! I might even extend Bootcut Boot Camp for myself through the rest of the week - what do you think?

    Looks great! Love your Mal coat. :-)

    You look great in blue rae. Love the boot cuts & boots.
    I have the same issue now that I'm not wearing necklaces or scarves as much. I find a
    v neck & cami can break up the bust line.

    I think this looks great, you don't look top heavy to me!

    Simple and classic. How could you go wrong?

  • Tanya replied 11 years ago

    Love the outfit Rae,classic and cool at the same time. You look very pretty in blue!

    If you decide to do Bootcut Boot Camp for the rest of the week, I will join you :) I need some motivation to get me out of the skinny jeans rut I have been stuck in.

    cobalt and bootcut, say no more. You made it really interesting with the white and brown as well.

  • Angie replied 11 years ago

    I like how these bootcuts virtually look like straight legs. Very nice!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 11 years ago

    You don't look top heavy Rae - perfectly proportioned! I love this look on you and the white of the boots and the bag really bring up the outfit.

  • Suz replied 11 years ago

    You look STUNNING in bootcuts. Honestly, you look great in all jeans. But this is a fun change, and yes - go for the week!

    Love the cobalt and bootcut outfit. The light shoe and bag are lovely. And I love denim with cobalt... oh wait I said that already! Making a note to COPY this look....

  • Thistle replied 11 years ago

    Love the cobalt on you. Really like the pairing of the white in the boots and bag. The skinnies look FAB on you. And the tip balances you out beautifully.

    And you have a Malcolm coat!!! I loved that show, never realized there were so many other fans!

    I love the white booties and bag with this - instant update!

  • Tina.b replied 11 years ago

    Those are a great pair of bootcuts, the width is perfect to my eye. And you are perfectly proportioned. The trench is utterly fabulous as well. Love this look for you!

    This looks wonderful on you.

    Sorry, double post.

  • CocoLion replied 11 years ago

    I saw the thumbnail on the home page and had to open this! This is extremely cool! I am surprised because I haven't been loving bootcuts for a while. I love the length, the cut of the jeans, and especially, the preppy but sophisticated style. I think the white / light footwear and bag make the whole outfit on trend. The boot cuts are less expected than skinnies which adds to the cool factor. Can't say enough good things about this...

    Love the booties & these jeans fit perfectly, length included!
