Battle of the Boots

I need a Magic Fashion 8-Ball.  In grade school, my friends and I would use it to find out which crushes reciprocated our interest.  But I digress.  I can’t decide which boots I like better with this outfit.  The short ones show off more leg and accordingly balance the simple look.  The long ones are unexpected and add interest with its hardware.  Help!

Canary Song

Why not add a bit of testosterone to your feminine style?  Rough up a dainty bow-tied top by pairing it with slacks and somber hues.  These black pants are perfect boot stuffers, with enough slouch to give the overall look a military effect.  The obvious star piece is the Opening Ceremony cardigan.  It’s seasons old, but the brand’s current fall/winter fare is worthy of noting.  One of my favorites, the Moto Flare Coat was recently worn by a certain southern belle who had Four Christmases.

Nicholas K Tucker Sweats

Sweat pants are for the home and the gym.  Furthermore, if there is a message sewn on the rear they should be left in the closet.  But these Nicholas K sweats are far from having a certain Juicy je nais sais quois.  Below are four-ways to wear them.  Available at funkylala.com in khaki.
