Let me start by saying Boot Season Should be every season. A lot of people look forward to fall for the cooler weather, the bright earthy colors and of course pumpkin spice everything but I’m always looking forward to breaking my boots out! This will be my first installment of “Boot Season” posts so get ready for boot inspiration as I visit and review pairs in my collection and a few pairs I have my eye on.
Everyone needs a sturdy but eye-catching pair of boots to wear casually. It’s hard to pick a favorite pair in my collection but I would definitely make these a tie for 2nd place. The Timberland Britton Hill (link to buy at the end of the post) is a that perfect rich cherry wood brown leather with brown suede panels. A lot of boot company are experimenting with mixed media, but I believe Timberland has done an exceptional job with this design.
I like wearing these boots with a dark wash, pair of rigid denim that gives a good contrast of dark tones. As the trend of cuffing denim has resurfaced it is imperative to have a good pair of boot socks to showcase when sitting or under a pair of cropped denim.
The mock toe makes for a casual look while the rich, dark leather gives them a classy vibe. I have gotten so many compliments of these boots and even received one while out on this shoot in particular. The put a cap on the casual look I passed up my go-to lightweight pea coat and pulled out my heavyweight cotton mock neck sweater jacket. You can’t go wrong with the sweater jacket when it isn’t cold enough for a heavy coat, but you need something you can layer but will still protect you from the frostiness in the air.
Great news for you! These boots were re-released and you can get them here! Act fast because this amazing boot sells out fast and will undoubtedly do so this holiday season.
The Science: Timberland is a timeless brand known for their work boots and they have been able to reapply that rugged long-lasting technology to more contemporary designs. These boots boast Timberland’s “Sensorflex” comfort system designed to move and adapt to uneven terrain and provide comfort while standing and walking for extended periods. The tread on the sole is divided into sections where the boot flexes and separates to fit the contours of your terrain whether it be mountainous while out on a hike or flat while you should for the perfect winter coat in the mall.
The Suave: Try pairing a sweater-jacket and Henley of thermal the next time you throw on your favorite par of boots. Don’t be afraid to experiment with boots that offer unique designs including mixed media, you’d be surprised how quickly they will grow on you and the number of compliments you’ll get while wearing them!
