How I Rocked It!: Thrifted Oxford Boots

Adrienne November 1, 2010 11

Before checking out, I knew incorporating a pair of brown oxford boots into my wardrobe would take some thought.

Honestly, they looked pretty old school. But, something about the thick heel and worn leather made them a must have.

After bringing my $6.60 boots home I thought: They aren’t short enough, like an ankle boot, to wear with a skirt or dress. Nor are they tall enough, like a mid calf or knee boot, to tuck into jeans or pants.

Needless to say, over the past few weeks, I have been deeply thinking about how to make these old school boots look, not so “old school.”

I finally decided the best way to wear them would be with skinny jeans. The tapered ankle of the jeans would show off the boots & give them a more “current” look.

    I love the look. I will say honestly when I saw the boots I didn’t think they would work…but I must say you wore them well. Now I will be searching my local thrift stores for some boots. =)

      Yes, I am going to step my legging game up by actually purchasing a “real pair” LOL.

    Yes, you rocked those boots. I didn’t like them at first. But you put it together very well. I have to add that you are a sexy, smart lady!
