Day 9 of 12 Days of Style – Floral Print Jeans

What is 12 Days of Style? From now until Christmas, I’m trying to wear something something fun, trendy or out of the ordinary to get myself out of a style slump! Here is Day 9!

I’m wearing floral print jeans with my favorite Dansko Nat Boots and a faux-fur sweater I just bought on Zulily for only $17.99! It was originally $98.00. Score!

I got these jeans pretty cheap too. Only $17.50 on eBay instead of $49.50 retail.

What do you think of this outfit?

Today’s Outfit: TJ Maxx Score Outfit #2

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Last week, I scored big at TJ Maxx. What would have cost me well over $1,500 in a department store with retail prices, only cost me around $200 at T.J.Maxx! That’s called being a Maxxinista!

One of my favorite things I purchased were these rust-colored skinny jeggings for $16. I think the brand is “True Love Jeans”. (Size small fits like a size 2/26) They are so comfy and stretchy!

Possible Outfit Example

Last Saturday I showed you 2 possible outfit combinations along with one outfit I actually wore that day. Well today, I’m wearing one of the “possible outfit combinations” I posted about on Saturday (see pic on right), minus the shoes.

I switched out the Report animal print studded ballet flats for my beloved Dansko Nat Lace-Up Leather Boots so many ankles wouldn’t be cold! I seriously love these boots… They are the bomb.

I know I look annoyed, but I promise it’s not the outfit that has me going! Trying to take pictures in a poorly lit room can be a bit…um… challenging.

Dansko Nat Lace-Up Leather Boots Review

We received the Dansko Nat lace up leather boots last month to review and we’re pretty smitten so far.

First impression is that they are very sturdy and supportive, like all Dansko footwear. I love the studs and cute design on the toe. Overall, these are a really stylish and classy choice for Fall.

If you are looking for a shorter boot to wear with your entire Fall wardrobe, these fit the bill. They have a convenient side zipper, adjustable elastic gusset on side and adjustable laces for a truly customized fit. The heel is solid and has great balance and they are very easy to walk in. If you are looking for a little bit of height, without compromising your footing, these are the perfect choice.

SIZING: I normally wear a size 7 – 7.5 in most shoes. In Dansko, I wear a size 38 which is equivalent to a 7.5 or 8. I find that sizing up works best with Dansko, especially if they are a style you can wear socks with.

COMFORT: If you purchase the right size, you will find Dansko shoes to be extremely comfortable. They have a molded footbed that conforms to your feet. I have never had a problem with Dansko footwear rubbing or requiring a break-in period.

SUPPORT: These boots, like most Dansko styles, have very good arch support. If you do not like arch support, these may not be a great choice for you. I would recommend trying them on in a store instead of purchasing them online. The tall boot shaft lends great support to weak ankles and is an excellent choice for someone who wouldn’t normally wear heels because of the fear of discomfort and inconvenience. You will have so much confidence while wearing these boots.

OVERALL: Overall, I would definitely recommend these boots, especially to Dansko fans who are familiar with the feel and fit of Dansko footwear. I love the stylish studs, the lace up detail and the cute design on the top of the toe area. These are really cute and quite versatile.

You can wear them with skinny jeans tucked in, skinny jeans rolled up, boot cut jeans, leggings, tights, skirts, dresses and even shorts! Check out our post How To Wear Dansko Nat Lace-Up Boots for more ideas on how to wear these boots.
