return of the…simple

Jacket: J.Crew – 25% off w/code SHOPNOW (love this one for Fall)

Shirt: J.Crew (old) (great options here, herehere)

Coated skinnies: H&M (old) (similar here, here, here)

Boots: ShoeMint  (very similar to this Tory Burch pair)

Bag: Coach  (fab option for less) (in love with this one in color cinnabar)

Scarf: old (similar here, here, here

You might have already seen this fab pair of TB boots. Just a simple, classic boots with a little twist, gold twist. Love the gold detail in the back.  So when I saw the pair I’m wearing on ShoeMint I ordered them hoping they’ll fit (most boots don’t as they’re way too wide around my legs. These are just a tiny bit which doesn’t bother me). And they resemble the Tory Burch Jess boots….for a lot less. 

At first they were just a little snug. As with most leather shoes, they stretch a bit and now they fit great.  Very comfortable. The hunt for black boots is over. Finally! 

Have you found your ideal pair boots for Fall yet? 

As always, thank you for reading! 

p.s. ShoeMint giveway coming this week, so stay tuned!

    I love those boots! The link unfortunately won't let me access them 🙁 I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of black boots for two years now. Do you know the name of the boot? Thanks!

      Hi, the boot is called Britt. You do have to be a member to buy their shoes.

    I agree- I don't think boots have to be completely snug to the calf to look nice. You & your boots look great here and perfect for fall!On the Daily Express

    Hi, I was wondering what color that your jacket is in from J Crew in these photos. The website has the options for a deep navy and a brown but yours almost appears grey. Please let me know 🙂
