Early spring is just another continuation of love for the lace-up boot. It doesn’t matter what coast you are on. What the weather is like. A boot always seems like the right choice for some reason. It’s a endless state of mind. Whatever your choice of destination is, a boot will get you through it. And now onto the boot of the moment . . . the Timberland Kenniston boot in white. 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 pair that the orangey tan suede (was there any other color option at the time?). In the third grade, being a tomboy was cool, and Tims 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 soles. And especially when they are so comfortable you never want to take them off. That’s the thing about the Timberland Kenniston boot. It’s made to be super lightweight. A far cry from the chunky ones of my childhood playground past. They feel like sneakers on. 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. The more I can reuse, the better I feel about what I put on my better. It’s a cycle of sustainability that I hope continues to make its way throughout the industry.
Check out how I styled this one boot in three different ways. 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 a list of outfit combinations that really made this boot the shining star. First off, we have a summer crop pant turned into a early spring weekend look. I love how an ankle boot looks with a boyish cropped trouser, I’m a firm believer or transitioning my favorite summer staples into every sort of season. A lightweight coat and turtleneck is just the thing.
Second, we have a going out with the girls on a chilly evening look. Springtime on the east coast is still pretty cold! I was looking for a way to dress up the boots, and my mind was stuck in the 70’s. So my forest green fur and rust colored neck scarf naturally came out to play. Not to mention the rose tinted classes. 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 Timberland Kennistons out to play on a warmer day in Los Angeles. I wanted to wear color, and because of the good weather bare legs was a must. My favorite 90’s-esque ribbed dress (body conscious and perfect) complemented the 90’s throwback of my boots . . . just in a much more 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 for spring?
