Bootin’ Trend

I swore to myself that I would never wear combat boots again! I spent five years wearing them as I served in the United States Air Force. And when you wear them every single day, they lose any type of fashion appeal.

But, the more I see them around, the more I want a pair. In fact, I saw this pair of Rocket Dog Rideon Vintage Worn boots at Marshalls the other day and I can’t stop thinking about them. They aren’t the most feminine pair of shoes, but maybe that’s why I like them.

I would love to pair them with leggings, skinny jeans, or black opaque tights. Maybe after all these years I’m ready to move on and grab a pair.


How would you style these boots? And do you thing this trend will carry over into the spring/early summer?

    I think it can be feminine…like Amelie!

    Oh wow! Interesting fact about you! In the Air Force…wow! FIVE YEARS! I almost joined the army with one of my good friends, but I chickened out! LOL! I could see why you weren't feeling the boots. They would look pretty cool with leggings or skinny jeans. I could even see the tall boots with tights and a denim skirt. I remember them being pretty popular in high school. I dressed "grunge" back them. LOL. And had a few "gothic" friends. Blast from the past…
