WIW: Bootcut Bootcamp & Gold

I've been enjoying watching Rae, Tanya and Una rock their bootcuts this week so am wearing my newly thrifted jeans in their honour. Bootcuts have actually always been my favourite cut of jeans - I find them comfortable, versatile and to me, the leg line helps to balance out my hips and midsection. I tend to feel taller and leaner in boot cuts.

I ADORE this pair of Kut from the Kloth I thrifted last week - not only do they fit perfectly and are oh so comfy, someone out there has the same leg length as me and they didn't even need shortening! I also really like the faded almost vintage-y wash of these.

I've paired the jeans with my gold metallic sweater with a semi tuck. I've added a simple back belt with gunmetal buckle. For footwear, I decided on my red SE boots - red might seem like an odd choice but I like the unexpected pop of red on my feet. For my handbag, I went with my Christopher Kon black lamb leather with gold hardware and a gold oversized watch rounds out the accessories.

I'm really happy with this outfit and hope you like it too. As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

    That sweater was a great find! The gold is so luxe. I love it paired with the bootcuts!

    We are metallic twins today but I am wearing silver skinnies :)

    Hmm, I have the bootcuts, red booties and black belt - but do I have a gold sweater? Plan on copying as well as possible next week. That is my way of saying you look fab!

    Very nice Shannon! You have great luck when you go thrifting.

    Love the whole outfit Shannon! Glad you are joining our boot camp, you look great in bootcut jeans!

    Love the contrast between the sweater and the jeans - fabulous!! Hmmm. I think this could go from work to casual date night in a flash...

    Great outfit! I like how the red shoes and your red lipstick add that extra pop of color.

    How amazing are those jeans on you! Most mortal souls have to try on about 80 pairs to find one that looks that good. Great pairing with the gold sweater and the red boots are a fabulous and unexpected touch! Hope you had an amazing day yesterday Shannon!

    Sara - I have truly come to think of red lipstick as one of my accessories!

    Shevia - I'd be honoured to have you copy anything I wear!

    Thanks for your lovely comments Ceit, Kristin, Tanya, Suz, Tina and Sarah!

    Love this outfit Shannon. I like *both* your red accessories and you sweater is gorgeous. I wouldn't change a thing.

    These are a wondeful addition to the jean-capsule, Shannon. What an added bonus that they are thrifted and already hemmed perfectly!

    Don't you find a new pair of jeans freshens your outlook as you put together an outfit in the morning?

  • Vicki replied 5 years ago

    Sign me up for bootcamp, so I can dress like you, Shannon. Love every item, from head to toe!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    Beth Ann - well "new to me" jeans anyway - lol!

    Diane & Vicki - thanks :)
