Parisian Combat Boot Outfit

The fact that October is almost over is giving me a little bit of anxiety. Honestly, how is it almost Halloween? Is it really almost November? These are all realizations I had this weekend so I won’t lie; I’m in panic mode this week. I even realized yesterday, while I was supposed to be relaxing during my every-other-month facial, that I forgot to rent us a car for our Miami trip coming up. Yep, hot mess express. Oops.

What I didn’t forget about, however, is when I styled a bunch of looks with combat boots. I even told you I was going to style them in real life too. So I did! Dr. Martens was generous enough to gift me the boots I had been eyeing, and of course, I want to wear them as much as possible! I’m still in the breaking in phase, so while I won’t be wearing them on any day of heavy walking quite yet, I am wearing them to work, to brunch, and on short errand runs.

This particular day took us to Tacoma, where we met up with Dave’s dad and stepmom for an overdue brunch. We went to Dirty Oscar’s Annex, which once upon a time was featured on the Guy Fieri show Diner’s Drive-Ins and Dives. I have to admit – over the years I feel like this place has become a little overrated when it comes to the quality food, but it definitely fits the “dive” part of the show. The restaurant is complete with a speakeasy front door, cocktails featuring moonshine, and overall unassuming facade.

I decided to go with the “Parisian” outfit first. Admittedly it was probably my favorite, because really, who doesn’t love stripes and florals together? I kind of failed at sticking to my original plan, but I loved the combination of olive green with the stripes and the floral print of the boots. With the fall colors of the boots and the jacket, I opted to go for my burgundy bag from Dailylook instead of a backpack. I added in tights because we were experiencing some wind (hence the crazy hair in a few shots, sorry about that), and it was a rather crisp morning. Guess that fall weather has finally arrived!

I hope this outfit with combat boots gives you some inspiration to create one of your own, or even just try a pair of combat boots. It was a trend that I honestly wasn’t sure about, but I am happy to be embracing it and received quite a few comments on the boots.

Have you given combat boots a try this fall? How do you like to wear them?

    Love the way you styled these! You pull of that swing dress so well! I went out to buy one the other day and it looked so bad on my body frame! I was bummed!

      Thanks Chelsie! I think it depends on the cut of the swing dress. I find I have to wear them with a jacket or long necklace to balance out the ‘tent’ effect ;)

    The boots are really cute, great styling! Miami..Im jealous! I have never been to Fl or the east coast period, thinking of a trip to Paris this summer possibly.

    Have a great time!
