Bootcut Boot Camp: Day 2

I had no non-gear activities planned for today, but I managed to squeeze in a bootcut outfit when we went out to dinner with a Groupon certificate tonight.

Started with what I think of as my "boyfriend bootcuts" - titled so because they hang super low and loose on my hips with a roomy seat and thigh. They somehow still manage to make me feel slim, though, because the knee break is narrow. I tried many top combinations but settled on my favorite citron sweater and my Karen Millen coat, since the cool weather is back in town. Topped it off with brown accessories to soften the saturated colors and a silver bag for a modern touch.

Bonus pics from today's hike, because it tickles me to see cactus growing right next to so much water, and because pic 3 hilariously shows a beam of heavenly light shining down upon DH - now that's a good hike! ;)

Structure ombre beanie - flea market
Pim & Larkin cashmere sweater - Piperlime
Karen Millen "Classic Investment" coat - Ebay
men's belt - flea market
paint-spattered jeans - flea market
Steve Madden bag - flea market
Fergie "major" boots - Overstock

    Really great pictures - I love the combination of cactus and ocean - and the "heavenly" light beam is amazing! Also, really like your outfit - I like the slouchiness of those boot-cuts - makes them look more current. You look really cute Rae!

    Stunning pics! I'll try to remember that the midwest tundra is character building!

    Love the looks you've been sporting recently. So vibrant and confident, but also easy and approachable.

    You look just fantastic in the bootcuts. You make me think I should really sport mine more often. Love how you've styled it, would not have thought to combine brown and silver. You look amazing! Great photos too!

    You look great in your jeans and I LOVE your choice of bag with this. It really zings.

    Gorgeous photos, too.

    You are really WORKING these bootcuts Rae! Are you finding them a nice change from the skinnies or are you missing the skinnies?

    Love your hike pics too - so nice to see green! Hubby's pic is fab!

    Boyfriend Bootcuts, I love that! They do look so comfy and flattering and you look adorable as always. Amazing and beautiful pictures. You look like you are really enjoying your life:)

    Thanks, everyone! I really loved wearing these jeans. I will now have to challenge myself to wear my bootcuts with a different kind of topper - just realized both days have featured long coats. :)
