How to Style White Boots for a Modern Look & a Tip to Clean Them
Quote of the day: “My style is ‘dress for the job you want’ and the job I want is unemployed, independently wealthy eccentric recluse.” @Behindyourback
So to finish up the week of how to style our white boots, I figured this quote would be the perfect chuckle. Is wearing white boots eccentric? Maybe. Yet white boots are very trendy right now. I feel like I see them on every blogger I see. Which is why I included 2 other bloggers in the individual days of how to wear them.
Does that mean you need a pair? Of course not. But if you do decide to try them out, I have shown different ways to wear them. There’s even a video below with more ideas. Just in case you’re not entirely sure whether to get some or not.
I know this week has been a different way of presenting our outfits. And we will be doing it this way a couple more times before I decide if this is the way it will continue. I’d love your feedback too if you have a preference, either by email or comment.
For the theme of how to wear white boots, I really tried to think of different ways to approach the footwear. I started with an all white look to make the outfit monochromatic. All of the details about my outfit are explained in that post.
Then I had Nancy wear a white topper to bookend the boots. I thought this would work nicely with pants that had white in them too, although in the post, another blogger, Cathy, showed how that didn’t need to be.
My mom wore another color basically head to toe so that the white boots were a contrast to her outfit. And again, I linked to another blogger, Carrie, because I saw her in the same type of outfit. Yet Carrie’s wasn’t as matchy matchy. Basically that made 5 different outfits all showing how the white boots can be styled.
Do you have a favorite?? Or way that you tend to think they look better?
I had to include this photo below. It’s the same idea I talked about in our puffer coat post. Mom and I are talking and Nancy is a photographer’s dream by looking at the camera. Real life, folks!!
Also, in mom’s post, she talked about how she folds the chain under the flap of this purse. It’s a trick she’s learned to make longer straps shorter for carrying. It doesn’t work for all purses and straps, but it does for this purse. There wasn’t a great shot of it in her individual post, but you can see it better here.
I’m not sure why the white boots are so popular right now. But they are a neutral. Just the other extreme of black. And since we all know how black goes with everything. Then why wouldn’t white?
In fact, since spring is hopefully coming soon, the white boots are a great way to transition to the warmer weather. They “feel” lighter in an outfit since they are white.
The best part is how there are so many varieties available. They aren’t all white white. Some are more ivory. In fact, my mom didn’t even realize that hers were more ivory until we were standing side by side.
What wouldn’t they go with? I’d be hard pressed to have an answer to that question. Color wise I think they absolutely go with everything. They are like the nude shoe trend only with more pop. The biggest reason they wouldn’t really fit with a certain outfit would be more about the style of the item.
That’s why I included many options of styles in the shopping below. Flats, heels, chunky or cutout versions depending on where you live and what you like.
This statue of the guitar is in front of a music place that has 3 concert halls in it here in Denver called Swallow Hill. There are also classes available here along with local bands playing.
We have been trying to make our photo shoots scheduled around an event for us too. This evening I bought us tickets to see Dakota Blonde. They are a local band that has been playing for over 15 years. They are sorta a mix between folksy and bluegrass with a little fun thrown in. I’m not sure if you know this but my husband was a musician in his early years. He played the vibes and was even showcased on Wonderama, the Sonny Fox show when he was 4 years old. Therefore, he always loves to listen to bands around the area.
Tip to Cleaning your White Boots
The biggest excuse I hear from not wanting white anything is how it gets dirty. And I get that. Everything gets dirty, it’s just if you can see the dirt. In fact, I’ve just been seeing a ton of ads about Chico’s Stain Shield shirts. It actually repels any stains, so your item stays clean. Hopefully, every piece will have this in it soon!!
So let’s talk about an easy way to clean these puppies. The Magic Eraser. I remember when I first discovered the Magic Eraser for my bathtub. I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. Heck, maybe even better.
I don’t know what makes it so magic, but for some reason it works fabulously. On your bathtub and white boots alike. Sure your boots are still going to get scuffed over time, but since they probably won’t be in style forever, you’re good.
Like I said in the individual posts, I didn’t ask both my mom and Nancy to buy their white boots. They did it all on their own. I love my pair, so I was excited to see they must like them enough to get their own pair.
So I bring it to you. If I was taking a vote, are you a yay or nay regarding white boots?
