It’s officially the season of the boot - it doesn't matter what coast you are on, or what the weather is like. A boot always seems like the right choice. It's a state of mind in the wintertime, and it transitions easily into the Spring. And now onto the boot of the moment...the Timberland Kenniston 6-Inch Lace Up Boot in white.
These are only my second pair of Timberlands. My very first pair was back in the third grade after I begged my mom to get me a pair because they were cool. Of course, I wanted the Classic Wheat Nubuck colorway. In the third grade, being a tomboy was cool, and Timberland made that point really fast. Fast forward to today . . . I'm still partially a tomboy. But most importantly, I'm a little bit of everything. I'm finding that out every single day.
But in the ever changing world of fashion, a boot always has a place on our feet. That's the thing about the Kenniston. It's made to be super lightweight. I could walk my city all day in them, and my feet will still feel brand new afterwards. I also adore the fact that the laces and breathable lining are made from recycled plastic bottles. With the state of the earth today, every little detail like this counts. Of course, the great look of these boots make them super-easy to style at least three different ways – like I did!
A white boot isn't always the easiest to incorporate into a look, but that just gives us all the more reason to get creative and think outside the box. After getting my styling motor running, it wasn’t hard at all to come up with outfits that really made this boot the shining star.
First off, we have a summer crop pant turned into an early spring weekend look. I love how an ankle boot looks with a cropped trouser. And even though it’s still warming up outside, I’m a firm believer in transitioning my favorite summer staples into the colder winter months - a wool coat and turtleneck help with that.
Second, I put together a “going out for an evening with the girls” look. I was looking for a way to dress up the boots, and my mind kept going to the ‘70s. So, my forest green fur and rust colored neck scarf came out to play, paired with rose-tinted glasses. A dark color palette against the stark white may seem like a bit too much of a contrast, but in the end the two extremes felt just exactly right.
Third, I came up with a way to bring my Kennistons out to play on a warmer, Spring-like day in Los Angeles. I wanted to wear color, and because of the good weather, bare legs were a must. My 90s-esque ribbed dress complemented the 90s throwback color of my boots – in a refined way. The only thing missing from my look was a discman. Timberland just got me feeling super downtown.
So now, let me ask you . . . how would you style your own pair of Timberland Kenniston boots?
