Boots of Spanish Leather

Dress: Thrifted, $6 // Blazer: Vintage Levi's, thrifted, $1.50 // Necklace: Wild Man Vintage, $13 // Boots: Vintage Anne Klein via Wild Man Vintage, $15

My shoe collection is pretty extensive, but one area that always feels lacking is basic tall boots. I recently found these brown leather beauties for half price and have been wanting to wear them with everything since! We'll see how long the infatuation lasts...

And, no, they're not Spanish. I just like that song.

That IS a great song. And I love the combination of floral, navy, and brown leather.

That dress is so pretty, but I love how you paired it with the over-the-knee socks and boots.

I love your blazer here! I often can't find blazers with sleeves long enough so I always end up rolling them to my elbow I think I might just try one big cuff!

I really dig your color palette here. I also have been on the search for an affordable pair of tall boots that aren't too frumpy all throughout the winter, but to no avail. Yours seem so chic!

Love it. And if you didn't say anything I would have assumed they were Spanish, hahaha.

I love a good brown boot with rich colors like yellow and blue.

I am loving this combo! Always jealous of how cheap you find stuff; Kansas must have excellent thrift stores.

What a perfect blazer! I feel like it's hard to find the exact right blazer, but you've done it.

I just found your blog, sort of randomly, and as a Kansan at heart (now living in NYC), I was so happy to see such a lovely and fashionable lady in the heartland!
