Shoetique Black And Tan Style Edit 10% Off For Readers

If you were reading my post’s early last summer you might remember the gorgeous gold fitflops that Shoetique kindly sent me. If not you can read about it here I lived in those sandals throughout the summer, they are so comfortable I can’t recommend them enough. They have stood the test of time too, and are still like new.
Today I’m sporting winter wear from Shoetique A different brand called Gabor. Ankle boots with a medium heel, soft suede and a faux zip fastening that finishes off the style of the boot very nicely.

I’m styling my boots today with a Black and Tan theme. Wearing the new fashion length trousers in a camel colour. I keep seeing these shorter length trousers on bloggers and in magazines and really wanted to give them a try. What do you think ? I just don’t pass off that cool-girl look that I’m trying to achieve it’s just not who I am. You have to try these things sometimes right ? I tied in the black boots with the cardigan of black and brown stripes to balance the whole outfit.

I chose my Tan bag and Tan belt to finish the look. 

Off out on a country walk today, It’s nearly November and the  weather is sooo good! The boots are ultra comfy, they have a small platform, so although they look like your wearing high heels, they actually feel like you’re wearing boots that only have a slight heel. Style and comfort rolled into one!

Oh and there’s a slight  change! Straight hair ! It takes ages to do, a lot longer than having it curly but I just fancied a change. Do tell me what you think?

I have a 10% off code for you all so do take a look at Shoetique The code to use is VANITY10

Boots – co/Shoetique
Top – Jaeger
Cardigan – Karen Millen (old)

    Your hair looks lovely! The trousers look good particularly with that black white and tan colour way. I've found trousers a bit difficult to wear in the last few years because I like them to be long and not above the ankle. I might write about the trouser dilemma soon!

    Great boots! You look great, and the straight hair really suits you.

    Your hair, the boots, and everything just looks fabulous, Laurie! My hair takes forever to curl, so I have the opposite problem, but just like you said–sometimes you just have to do it. For you, it all comes together elegantly! (You ARE a cool-girl in my book!)

    Laurie, I love the boots but I don't think I'd wear the trousers. I just wouldn't feel comfortable in them but heck that's just me lol xo

    I totally know what you mean about the cropped trousers this way. I tried them too. I think part of the reason they don't "feel" like us is that we haven't been wearing them for years. Sometimes I think "our style" is really only habit and what we are used to!
    So my opinion, is this outfit looks fabulous. It may not be the norm, or what you're used to wearing, but it's beautiful and elegant!

      Thank you Jodie. But I have to say I just feel like I'm wearing trousers that shrunk in the wash! xx

    Looks great – loving the outfit, great colour combos. Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo x

    I have just bought a pair of cropped trousers and am trying to style them, so I understand your perplexity…in any case you did a good job with yours !
    Beautiful sweater and accessories !
    The black boots are versatile: you will match them to many different outfits !!

    • November 6, 2016 / 9:49 pm

      Thank you Dan. I'm finding them hard to style! I'm not sure these are for me. I look forward to seeing your style version. x

    Your outfit is gorgeous and I really like the ankle boots! I think the pant length would not work on me, but you look lovely wearing this style.

  10. November 6, 2016 / 6:10 am

    I've no idea what you're talking about, Laurie, you look pretty cool to me in that ensemble 🙂

    • November 6, 2016 / 9:46 pm

      To me that's a big compliment ! Thank you Sheela xx

    So funny. Seeing ourselves in different clothing or with a different hairstyle seems to throw us off. It's not what we're used to. But I think you look very chic and very cool. I love the combo, the stripes on the sweater are done in an interesting way and they look great with the brown pants. And really like the boots, I need a bit of a heel but without the platform it bothers my bad ankle. These look like they would be perfect. Checking them out thanks for the tip! And by the way your hair looks great either way. You're a very beautiful woman.

    • November 6, 2016 / 9:45 pm

      So lovely of you to say that Nikki. I really recommend the brand, these boots have barely been off my feet!

    Beautiful! I love those boots! And I hear you on the shorter trousers…I keep seeing them, and I love the way they look..but I don't know if I can pull them off! You styled them to perfection and look fantastic!

      Thank you so much Lindsey. But I have decided they are not for me. We have to try these things right? I will be turning these up into culottes x

    Love the look. Boots are great. Great autumn photos too #dreamteam

      All done Ada. I always look forward to linking up with you x

  15. November 4, 2016 / 3:36 am

    Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. Another great outfit. Back and tan are so great together. One can't believe that it was a style rule not to wear black and brown together. Your outfit proves it is a do!

  16. November 3, 2016 / 5:46 pm

    First off, I have to say love the hair, Laurie!
    Then, oooh, I love the outfit too! Great combination of black and tan and I do think you have a cool girl vibe in this outfit. The cardigan works a treat with the trousers and you've a great Autumnal outfit.

      Thank you Jacqui! I browse all the blogs, admiring all those too cool for school looks that I would love to achieve! It's just not meant to be. I wil just have to be remembered as that classic style girl xx

  17. November 3, 2016 / 5:16 pm

    Love your hair Laurie! It really looks great either way. My hair is naturally striaght. Love the combination of browns and black, a rich bag, and those booties look like they are perfect for any outfit!
    thanks for linking up with turning heads tuesday

    Looks like a lovely fall look! Thanks for linking up!

  19. November 2, 2016 / 9:49 pm

    Thought you looked different but couldn't quite put my finger on it. It's your hair! It looks lovely and having gorgeous curly hair gives you two styles to choose from each morning. Lucky you.
    I am a huge Gabor boots fan and I've never had to repair a pair, even after 10 + year's of use!
    Your boots look super, I'm sure you will have many years of pleasurable wear.

    • November 5, 2016 / 7:55 am

      Thank you Mary! And thank you for stopping by for a read. Curly is just so much easier for me! The Gabor boots are so comfortable, and I agree on the quality. Suede made a nice change too x

  20. November 2, 2016 / 6:41 am

    Great look Laurie, love your boots. The heel looks a great size, not to high!! thanks for sharing at the Wednesday blog hop

  21. November 2, 2016 / 4:09 am

    Thanks for linking up to the Ageless Style linkup party! I love this look. The belt is very interesting.

  22. November 1, 2016 / 6:59 pm

    Love the boots and the trousers and….Just the hole look! Gabor is a good brand, the shoes and boots have a great passform. Did I mention that I love your trousers! I think I like the curls a bit better. And I love your trousers!!!!😂😂😂😂😂but I really do!

    • November 5, 2016 / 7:51 am

      Thank you Nancy. I'm just not sure about these trousers. xx

    • November 5, 2016 / 7:50 am

      Thank you Emma. I can't get used to these trousers though!

  23. November 1, 2016 / 4:55 pm

    Super Laurie, Love all these pieces. The trousers look really good one you – good choice. You hair suits you straight, I wish mine would look equally good curly!

    • November 5, 2016 / 7:49 am

      Thank you Jacqui. It's so much harder to keep strait! I'm the other way! My hair is curly anyway. It literally will only last the day it's done. x

    Every woman needs a pair of little black booties in her closet along with her LBD. These are great for Autumn and I am looking for a new pair this season. #TopoftheWorldLinkUp

    • November 5, 2016 / 7:47 am

      Thank you Antionette.I'm glad you like them (so comfy too) Thank you so much for stopping by x

  25. November 1, 2016 / 3:33 pm

    Oh, I love this look! Your jacket is such a statement piece and was the perfect way to complete your ensemble. Your booties are a fabulous style and look very comfortable.

  26. November 1, 2016 / 3:27 pm

    Laurie, you look gorgeous! Love the outfit, but I would much prefer regular length trousers. I would not be at all comfortable wearing those short ones! Your hair looks great either straight or curly, so just go with what's easiest.

    • November 5, 2016 / 7:44 am

      Thank you for your honest opinion Jean.And thank you for stopping by! I have to agree with you. I have wanted a pair of these cropped trousers for sometime and as you can see from the comments below, they seem to be going down quite well. However as much as I love them on everyone else, I just don't think they are right for me! I will be taking the scissors to these and they will become culottes! x
