Goodwill Gems: Brown Leather Boots

Boots are back. From tall tackle-anything flats to ankle booties with heels three inches high, boots make everything awesome in Autumn even better. On the look out for a classic pair of seasonal kicks, our Lauren headed out to her local Goodwill (where everything will be 25% off this Monday, btw) leading to this week’s Goodwill Gem: Everyday Fall Fantastic Brown Leather Boots.

Classic, knee-high boots in a rich brown leather are the kind of wear-everywhere shoes that you can wear proudly for years.

What a girl needs. No matter who you are, your individual style, or your income level, there are a few key items that fit every woman’s wardrobe. A pair of knee-high brown leather boots with a not-too-tall heel is that kind of wardrobe staple.

Their cognac color and effortless elegance is not easy to find in any one piece. And the simple but polished style of a long leg-to-boot line makes a pair like these easy to wear with absolutely anything, from your most casual jeans and tees to your favorite sweater dresses and professional wool work skirts.

Boots like these are such a fantastic find because they really can go with absolutely anything in your closet. Which leads to the real question, how will you wear them?

 Here I add a little polish and pizzazz to a cozy, layered fall look with a glam gold scarf and tailored jacket.

It’s great to mix things up. But sometimes, you just want to jump into a comfy, yet stylish, look that doesn’t involve any time to put together or any analysis in front of full-length mirrors.

For relaxed autumn days like those, there is no easier (or chicer) look than a pair of soft, stretchy jeans, a loose tee-shirt, a gorgeous scarf and a structured blazer, to pull the whole look together. A few casual, yet well-fitting layers later – and with your pair of fabulously fashionable and classy new boots to top it all off – and you’ve got a sophisticated, professional, no-stress outfit that can take you nearly anywhere.
