Fashion Friday: White Boots for Winter

Fashion Friday: White Boots for Winter

Fashion Friday 2.0 brings back a popular TIO fashion blog, first featuring Kristin Holbrook of Two Skirts, now brought to you by Erin Busbee and sponsored by Kristin and Two Skirts.

What goes around…

This week Erin’s focus is on white boots for winter. (You heard me.)

One of the white hot trends this season … white boots.

I’m not going to sugar coat it: these boots are tough to wear, and they may feel a little weird at first.

(Dallas Cowboy cheerleader flew through my mind.)

But, now that I’ve had the chance to style these boots…I am REALLY digging them! I find them sexy, modern and unique.

Below check out how I styled my white boots three different ways.

Look #1 | White Blouse + Cropped Jeans

It took some courage to set up my camera in the middle of downtown Telluride, in the middle of the street… But this last shot was worth it. My camera set up (sans photographer) always elicits some curious glances.

These awesome split-hem jeans frame the boots perfectly (pardon the pun). I also like how they cover up the boots a bit.

This is the second pair of white boots I ordered (sent the first pair back).
I really love the chic almond toe shape, chunky heel, and how they are a more modern, mid-calf height. They run true to size.

With the cami, this is a surprisingly versatile look. Wear it during the day if you have something special going on or out for date night.

You will look like you are bringing your style ‘A game’.

Look #2 | Velvet Top + Jeans

I took these shots (above) by the Telluride Airport. It is one of the most terrifying airports I’ve ever seen.

I have ZERO fear of flying, and I don’t think you’ll ever catch me landing here.

I’m not able to go to New York Fashion Week this fall, but if I were, this is one of the looks I would be wearing!

Look #3 | All White

I have ALWAYS been a fan of all white. When I worked in an office, I used to wear all white to work about once a month regardless of the season.

When you get the right combination and fabrics, all white tends to look so elegant and expensive (even if it’s not).

I like to mix tones and textures when wearing all white.

I think this would be an elegant and unexpected option for dinner, date night or parties.

More about Two Skirts:

Kristin Holbrook & Joanne Brown, co-owners, Two Skirts.

Two Skirts is a high-end women’s boutique with two locations: Telluride, Colorado and San Francisco, California. The store carries apparel, accessories, make-up, shoes, and jewelry.

It is fair to say that the history of Two Skirts began down the road a piece: Kristin followed the man who became her husband, (Kevin), who followed his ski school client, Joanne Brown, from Vail to Telluride.

“Kevin decided Telluride was going to be the next great place, so he moved to town in 1998. I followed in 1999 with a desire to open a business for two reasons: 1) I wanted to have something of my own to keep me in this remote town since I knew my husband would never leave; and 2), the timing seemed right to become an entrepreneur in Telluride,” explained Kristin.

Kristin approached Joanne about partnering in a women’s boutique.

The concept for Two Skirts was born in 2000.
