This weekend I set out to venture around Chicago. Living across the street from Grant Park and down the street from Millennium Park’s bean statue, I took the opportunity to be outside while the sun was shining. I think the sun can give anyone that little bit of optimism about spring. After experiencing my first winter in the city I think 20 degrees is extremely warm in comparison to negative temperatures. Everyone was enjoying the weather. It gives us hope for warmer days. I love to wander to the tourist attractions on days like this and people watch. That is where I spotted this week’s Fashionista.
I like the balance of edge in this Fashionista’s outfit. She pairs her Timberland boots with tights and a skirt. Each piece works together. Her skirt is pleated leather. On top she wears a cute graphic city T-shirt and a flannel to pull the look together.
Timberland boots are a growing trend for many tomboy Fashionistas. This rough and rugged look started as boots made only for hiking and the outdoors. Now Fashionistas and Fashionistos are using them to make a new fashion statement. These boots have been seen on everyone from Rihanna to the Kardashians. The tomboy look always goes well with a flannel shirt. Another way to wear them would be to throw on a dress and tie the flannel around the waist when the weather starts to warm up a bit. I love when girls can pull off a pair of Timberlands. They toughen up any outfit.
Spotted: Lace up work boots have been spotted on the Tommy Hilfiger fall 2014 ready-to-wear runway.
