Scuffed Boots (See Jane Wear)



My favorite boots from last year are in dire need of a shining and/or buffing.  I wore them tirelessly through a slushy winter and it apparently shows.  I love these boots because they're dead ringers for Loeffler Randall's classic Matilde boots, which I wanted badly a couple years back; instead, I paid a fraction of what they cost and bought these Steven by Steve Madden beauties.  I wore these boots for the first time this season when out to brunch with some friends this past weekend.  They're my go-to pair when I'm running around the city during the day; they make me feel instantly put together (even when I'm not) and they're comfortable to boot!  Pun intended.

Oooh, I LOVE them just the way they are (scuffing and all). I want a pair! They look so comfy too. I wonder if they're still selling them. I'm going to take a look. You look so pretty! Hope you had a great weekend.

I love those boots (and yes a dead look a-like to the LR, and WAAAY better in cost!) I didn't buy them last year, and was just recently eyeing the maroonish color that is new this year....although I am loving how 'worn' your browns look!!!! I have a need for brown!!!

I love this outfit! And there's nothing better than boots that are as comfortable and worn-in as these.

Erica said...

OMG! I have the same exact pair and I am wearing them now! They are so comfy. I think mine are even more beat up. They definitely need some TLC ; )

Jessica said...

I love the way you styled this entire outfit. The stripes with the sweater over top plus the jean leggings equals perfection! And don't even get me started on those boots. To die!

Alicia said...

My favorite boots are scuffed up and I like them better that way! It's funny how a pair of boots can instantly make an outfit feel more put together!

I asked the hubby to shine my favs a week or so ago... but he keeps "forgetting"? hmmm.
Stripes UNDER a shear sweater. I'm in love. You are too stylish for words.

I got a pair of boots resoled and they cleaned them up a bunch too, and it really made them look much more fit to wear for another season, though they're still kind of scuffy. But that's just what happens to the things I love, I love them right into the ground. Maybe that's why I don't have a boyfriend...hmm...

xoxo, Ashley

Kara said...

Aww, how cute! I like the stripe tee peeking out from behind the sweater.

I happen to love them all scuffed up. Would Janis shine her boots? You might be the leggiest human being I've ever seen! Sigh... love the simple perfection of this.

cheers!
