Faux Shearling And Over The Knee Boots

6:08 AM Mary Conley 2 Comments

Shearling is a great texture to add to your wardrobe during the colder months. It is thick and warm and has a luxurious feel to it. I was at Target earlier this week to kill time with Myles and decided to take a look at the women's clothing section and this jacket jumped out at me. I was so happy they had my size. I love the plum color and the faux shearling collar is actually removable which is great if you want to switch up your look and go for a more classic style. 
This is my first time owning this yellow color. I do have a light yellow tank top but for some reason I’m never drawn to yellow. Although this sweater has something to it and I just love it. Adding yellow is unexpected to say the least for this outfit. I originally had a short sleeve sweater that was the same color as my boots but I wasn’t feeling the monochromatic look that day.

Some of you may have seen on my Instastory the struggle I had to keep my jeans down in my boots. Well, I didn’t adjust them and they look normal and photographed just fine. I tried to keep my jeans down around my ankle but they kept sliding up and I pulled the boot up and you could see the denim line and it was driving me crazy. I received some great tips from my followers how how to keep your jeans down in your boots so I thought I should share them with you guys!

- safety pin one piece of elastic to both sides of your jeans to make them like a stirrup.
- tuck your jeans into your socks. I liked this suggestion the best except I had ankle socks on but next time I’ll give it a try!
- stuff your jeans down in your boots and pull your boots up first, then pull your pants up. I can see this one working, looking forward to trying this too.

The Breakdown:

I love shearling in the winter but it is very expensive. Burberry always has great shearling jackets that I envy in stores and catalogs. I also stumbled across this super cool two tone shearling jacket that I am really in love with but can’t fathom the price. The jacket I am wearing is faux all around but it feels great and looks great, the collar is removable also so you get a two-in-one jacket! How do you feel about this yellow sweater? I love how unexpected it is but now that I am thinking about it I think this golden yellow is considered a jewel tone which is a perfect color for fall and is a perfect match for my jewel tone jacket. Since I am wearing two colors on top I decided to keep my accessories neutral. I said that backwards, since my accessories are neutral (I picked them out first for this look) I could get away with wearing a bold color or multiple colors on top!

  1. Another hint is to wear denim Capri pants with over the knee boots or even boots up to the knee. No one is the wiser and it's very comfortable! @realtordee
