I fell in love with these Bionica Corset boots and bought them, without thinking about the fact that I have only cool colors in my closet and at 3" high, all my full length pants are at least 1.5" too short. But full length will cover the detail that makes me love them. They are my first pair of shoes in this color in decades. I don't want them to become orphans so I scoured my closet for the warmest colors I could find some are 10-20 years old) and was inspired by Angie's WHBM jeans post to dig out my straight leg jeans, which still show the lace detail.

Please let me know which of these combos work. These boots are so comfortable and the look is unique to me and really makes me happy so I would also love suggestions for other ways to style them for my mountain casual life.

I'm paranoid about looking stumpy (5'2" in a family of tall people) and have only just embraced slightly cropped styles. In general I try for conventionally flattering, so I often match shoe color to pants, but YFL is about trying new things.

(PSA - Sierra Trading Post has a number of colors in various size for a screaming $48 - the last Find is Nordstrom which doesn't have my "cork" color" so here is the link https://www.sierratradingpost......n~p~122ww/ I found the size 7 to be true to size, with a roomy toe box and cushy arch support)
