Easy Casual Styling With Jake Boots

After all the glamour of that wonderful hotel stay, I came back to reality with a bump. A lot of mess and upheaval going on as the renovation of my little London abode takes shape. It is slowly coming together and I’m getting excited now rather than thinking to myself ” glutton for punishment” But the fashion is casual all the way!

So, what do you wear when your home is in disarray? no room to swing a cat and well, it’s just chaos! I’m wearing jeans/leggings and more jeans/leggings! It’s got to be comfortable easy to move in and warm. So casual sweaters and the above is all that’s been on my body.

So when you’re heading out the door to go shopping or in my case return/buy for the renovations (You can find a post about the reno here) and you have to dash out the door quick, I just put on a smart coat and a pair of good knee high boots.

These new boots from Jake Shoes have been my best friend of late. Quality and comfort, smart but not dressy. Your perfect pair of day-wear boots.

Add a decent coat and a pair of knee high boots, you’re good to go.

When I was asked to choose a pair of boots from Jake shoes I was surprised that there were so many brands to choose from, including one of my favourites Guess. Delivery was swift and I’ve been really pleased with these ones by Tamaris. A new brand to me.

So that’s been my way of dressing the past couple of weeks. I think it’s surprising how a really casual look can be pulled together by a decent coat, a bag and a good pair of boots on your feet.

The coat is from MandCo last year but I did find a good equivalent for you below

You can’t even see the dry paint marks on my backside where I brushed up against the wall!

The boots are super comfortable. My favourite style, with a slight platform so that the heel doesn’t feel anywhere near as high as it looks. I love that kind of trickery on the eye.

Pleased with my new tote from accessorize too. On emptying my wardrobes I realised I had only two Black bags and one of those was fit for the bin. I keep looking for an investment Black bag at the right price but as of yet nothing has caught my eye. Do let me know if you spot anything along your way, please.

It was nice to grab some fresh air on the way to yet another trip to B&Q You don’t realise how much stuff you actually really need to buy do you? It was such a lovely morning though, I even needed my sunglasses!

Thank you to Jake Shoes for my lovely boots!

    I have a jacket very similar to that and you are prompting me to wear it. Such a great look. Thanks for linking up with us at Ageless Style.

    My sympathies for having a home that’s being remodeled. I went through that, and it’s hard to live there at the same time. Love your black and grey leopard coat and your boots! Very chic!

    What a pretty leopard jacket Laurie! I love a snow leopard with the grey and black print for a fun change over traditional leopard. Looks wonderful with your new boots, I wear my Jambu knee high boots all of the time.
    thanks for linking!

    Very stylish boots! I love concealed platforms, they make high heels much kinder to the feet. The new ring handle bag is a fabulous design. Thanks for linking up!

    Laurie,

    I love your coat and how chic you look!
    I need to find a comfortable pair of boots to wear in New York next week.
    I rarely wear boots in Atlanta because the temperatures are on the warm side in the winter.
    I shall try to copy your look my friend! Very smart!

    Hugs,
    Robin

    I totally understand why you chose those boots – they’re gorgeous. I do like a boot with a bit of a platform as well. In fact, the Jimmy Choos (my first ever designer pair!) hubby bought me over Christmas have the same thing which makes them really comfy!

    Lovely pair of boots Laurie – they look so stylish and comfortable. I couldn’t spy the paint mark on your bum either haha! Good luck with your renovations. I’m getting some rooms decorated soon – it’s a mixture of feelings – yey and urgh at the same time xx

    Good advice to throw on a smart coat and some decent boots and out the door, the benefits of a cooler climate! I always have difficulty with boots because I have calves so I tend to stick with booties and love a platform! Have a great week, Laurie! Donna 🧚🏻‍♀️❤️🙏 donnadoesdresses.com
