A bit of a different post today than usual. First of all, this one is on a Monday and I always post on a Friday. But I also wear an outfit that I would normally never wear, shorts and boots! But Jodie from Jodie’s Touch of Style asked me to do a post about embroidered boots together. And I knew immediately how I would wear my lovely black embroidered boots again! Jodie’s style of course!
First a word about Jodie. Jodie was one of the first bloggers I got to know. I was immediately captivated by her pleasant and very informative way of writing. How many tips I’ve already taken from Jodie. But above all, you get the feeling of belonging to her family when you read and follow her blog. In addition, Jodie is always ready to help you. It is a very beloved blogger for me!
How Jodie wears shorts and boots
So when she asked if we could write a post about embroidered boots together, I immediately knew how I would like to wear them this time. As a tribute to Jodie, of course. Because she sometimes wears shorts with boots and I think they look great on her. Well I have to say that it doesn’t look quite as nice on me as it does on her, but just poke through that. But this post is not on just a boot, it’s about embroidered boots! Let me tell you that I never had embroidered anything, but I am loving my boots a lot! And also have already wore them a lot!
How does it look on me…..
In my twenties I often wore shorts with ankle boots. In the winter then, with tights. I always thought it was a nice look. A very chilly nice look. And I still think it’s a lovely style It just doesn’t suit me, but I thought it would be fun to try it out. And that is what Jodie does! She often gets you out of your comfort zone!
I am wearing my summer shorts here as this is the only pair I have. Zara has some fabulous tweed, bouclé shorts this season that I think are fabulous. But not for me sadly. But if they do look good on you, check them out. I am wearing a sweater to create some balance because the boots are quite wide. If I would wear a fitted top then the boots would look even wider.
Is this is outfit that you would wear? Are shorts and boots for you?
I just love me a fun shorts& boots combination. xo
What a fun collaboration here! I adore your boots. Love that you paired them with shorts.
Thanks Kathrine, it’s not my usual style but fun to play with!
What a fun collaboration! You both are making me want to add embroidered boots to my Christmas wishlist! I never think of wearing boots with shorts but I do think it’s such a cute and fun look.
It is Joanne! And I have much more fun of the boots then I ever would have thought!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!! I think the sweater looks great with the shorts and boots and in a way you are print mixing!! I just have to say that you are the best for going out of your comfort zone. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, but you made this incredible Nancy.
Now you need a pair of faux leather shorts, haha!!! Then we can collaborate on that idea~!!!
Haha, thank you very much love! I banned all the leather, accept the jacket, out my closet. Because I can’t wear it at home on my white leather furniture,lol.
You look stunning Nancy! 💕 What a great style for you…. and Jodie 😉
More for Jodie! I think this is a great look for petite women.
Your embroidered boots are incredible, and I love the way you styled them here, even if the outfit is somewhat out of your comfort zone. It’s not a look that would work on me, but you can certainly pull it off. xxx
Oh thank you Ann, I don’t think it looks that good on me, but I like it!
Nancy, I think you look fabulous in these shorts and boots so I think you should definitely buy the shorts at Zara! You have beautiful legs and these beautiful boots to wear on them! I remember wearing wool shorts and tights when I was teaching. I must have had seven or eight pair of them! I even wore blazers with them! Such a fashionista!
Sounds cool! You must have been a fashionista by birth!
You look cute in this look. I love your sweater.
Oh Nancy, this is a fabulous look on you! You and Jodie both look fantastic. I’ve given up wearing shorts myself because I don’t have the legs for it, but you certainly do. And I agree, Jodie us an amazing person.
Oh thank you Michelle! I am sure you made Jodie smile!
I’ve never worn shorts with boots but I have seen a couple looks that I would like to imitate. I think it is a very fun look and I love your take on it. I think it looks great! Jodie is my favorite out there and she is as genuine in person as online. I do hope to go back to Arizona soon and actually visit with her! Maybe I can convince my husband to do our next anniversary trip there and let me abandon him for the day so I can hang out with her lol!
Oh wouldn’t that be fabulous! Yes, I think Jodie is genuine too irl!
What a fun collaboration! Jodie is very sweet. I also think that you look fantastic! I love your outfit and I think that you always look so cool and chic. XO
Oh that is so very kind of you Caroline! Thank you very much!
You ladies are both so cute in your embroidered boots! I love them with those black shorts, so sleek, stylish and FUN!
I would totally wear shorts and boots together (with tights, like you). Love the outfit. You look great in this sweater, Nancy1
Thanks Sheila. I have almost worn out this sweater, it’s one of my favourites!
What a great collaboration! I think they do suit you, they look fabulous with the embroidered boots. I’m not keen on wearing shorts because I have big knees but wearing them with tights in winter could work for me…maybe I’ll give them a try! Thanks for linking up!
I think you should! That would be something different!
