I really enjoyed the visuals in Angie's post on mid-calf boots this morning. In addition to these new cognac boots I have one other black mid-calf boot (also slouchy), in previous seasons worn with skinnies or with shorter skirts. Today I went a totally different direction, both from the post and how I'd previously worn mid-calf boots, and tried pairing with slouchy pants. I think it turned out fun, and am pleased to have an option which tones down the "flower pot" effect of these boots for whenever the mood hits.

Didn't want a fully slouchy look, though it did rather end up that way, so I chose my sleeveless turtleneck (which I've now worn every week since purchasing!) and popped a tonal jacket overtop. Pink lipstick and earrings for a little girlish touch, and black clutch because I liked having that little extra black element both with (cami) and without (clutch) the topper. I do prefer the look sans topper because it's got more structure that way. Luckily it's one of those in-between temperature sort of days so I've really only needed the jacket while out walking and in the evening.

Newer: sweater, pants, boots, earrings, sunnies
Older: clutch, jacket
