my close friend has started questioning my sanity, since this trend is v. outside my typical comfort zone, but my new favorite fall must-have item? the combat boot. i’ve purchased this affordable mango pair to see how much wear i get before investing bigger time, but i am currently drooling over these rag & bone, as well as other options by stuart weitzman, sam edelman, givenchysigerson morrisonzara and barney’s.

i’ve had to restrategize my jean wardrobe since this style requires a return to longer skinny jegging styles (cropped flares have been having such a moment), but i love the look with a chunky sweater (similar vibe for less) and soft leather jacket like the last CP above. when it gets colder, i might even throw this plaid topper on for another layer. will i end up looking kaia gerber cool or more liv tyler in empire records? guess you gals will have to be the judge…

now that we are in the crux of fall layering, playing with different textures and materials (hello suede + silk) is one of my favorite ways to make a basic outfit more interesting. first, a little inspiration…
