Combat Boots and Distressed Denim
I posted this outfit on Pinterest and other social media sites yesterday and this outfit did so well, I decided to share it with you for today. Combat boots really had a huge moment last year and are still going strong in 2020, so I finally decided to jump on the train and see how I liked wearing these boots. Once I got them, I really liked the fit and the comfort, but I was indecisive about how I was going to style them.
I know I will style these with longer dresses later on and I’m sure Raegan will steal them to wear with her outfits, but what about styling them right now? I decided on the looser jeans cuffed or rolled up with a black leather moto jacket. I wanted a look that a 50-year-old would be able to pull off, and I thought this would probably be the best for me. To my surprise, it was well-liked by a lot of ladies my age! My jacket is sold out (it was on the Top 10 for months!), but I did link a few different choices below if you have been thinking about a leather moto jacket. I LOVE mine!
I am wearing the High Waisted Skinny Jeans from American Eagle today. I have been wearing these right much here lately. I am wearing my normal size (size 8), these are not like regular skinny jeans or jeggings – they fit a tad looser. These are distressed, but the distressed part is covered by material except in a few spots, but you can’t see any of my skin in these. So if you like the look of distressed, but not the holes these are a good choice for you. I see the skinny (straight like these) and flared jeans are going to be popular this Spring and Summer. Skinny jeans are still trending, but you will see more of a variety in stores with different styles. See my jeans here.
A cute black Downtown Cami from Express is a perfect piece to layer underneath a moto jacket. Don’t we all need an extra camisole? I have tons, but I am always grabbing only a few that I really like. Anyone else like that? See the Downtown Cami here.
The earrings I am wearing are from Amazon, you can see them here. I really do wear these a lot – they go with everything and they are cheaper than Nickel and Suede! The Gucci dupe belt I am wearing is also from Amazon and can be seen here.
I am wearing a dog tag necklace that I have had for well over a year, but I found one that is almost identical to it here. I like the dog tag because like this one, mine has the scripture – Phil 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. That’s one of my favorite verses! See it here. If you like a sleeker look, this one is silver with a black cross on it and super cute too!
I was near the park when I was taking these pictures, a storm was coming up and I was trying to hurry. Just as I take the picture below, a red truck drives up, stops right near my Jeep (can you say uncomfortable?), and two older gentlemen sit there staring at me. They stopped the truck, so I finished the picture, gave them a wave and hopped in the Jeep. When I got closer to them I could see it was my neighbors checking on me to make sure I was ok…LOL! Talk about having bad eyesight – I need my glasses 24/7 now! Embarrassing! HA! Remember me telling you about my neighborhood and the senior citizens riding by when I’m taking photos – they followed me! LOL! One elderly man is almost 90 and he said, “you can run sweetie, but you can’t hide”. I love the elders in my neighborhood!

You can Rock that look Beverly!!!! I could not pull that one off. We have had a lot of rain too and thunderstorms early yesterday morning. Be safe and have a great day. ~Lisa~
Thanks!! This rain is for the birds!! Ugg!! Hopefully we will get a little snow since it’s been thundering. Well, that’s what people say anyways lol!! Thanks again Lisa 🥰 Have a great day!!
I’m cracking up over your neighbors! Love the outfit!
I think it’s really cute. I’m 63 but I’m not sure if I would feel comfortable or not. I wire cameos to work yesterday. After school program. I got tons of compliments. So maybe.
Maybe!! To my surprise I liked the boot a lot. But rock on with your bad self wearing Camo!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼❤️❤️
They are a hoot girl!! I love them lol😂
The outfit looks adorable on you as usual but I don’t think it’s one that I would step out of my comfort zone to wear…LOL That is a really a good price on those earrings as one pair is $10 in our area and those are the ones that crafters make. And I love that your neighbors look out for you; how sweet is that! We’ve been having snow and wind here and it’s a cold week.
Those earrings are a good deal and I knew this outfit was a step on the wild side 😂. My neighbors are so sweet, they are the best part of living here. A lot of them are passing on and some houses are becoming rentals which is one reason we are on the debate about what to do. Stay or move. Who knows…we are slow as turtles about making a decision!! Have a great day lovely 😘😘
I LOVE this look!!! I scored some red Doc Martens this winter to add to my combat book collection. It’s so sweet how your neighbors check on you. That’s good North Carolina neighboring!
Awe!! Thanks Maryanne!! My neighbors are a hoot!! I love these retirees-they keep me laughing!! Aren’t the combat boots cool??!!❤️❤️

Hi! thanks for joining in my linkup!
I have been a fan of combat boots for years. I have a pair from Sofft, a Swedish brand and they are among my favorites. Love yours with the moto jacket, very cute!
thanks for linking!
Ordered the earrings from amazon, can’t wait to get them.
Great!! They are VERY lightweight, if I were crafty I could make them much cheaper. But I’m not, and these are the cheapest I have found. Hope you love them!!
Sadly I had to return them, we were too big and long for my face. But I did find leather @ Hobby lobby that I turned into earrings. So it wasn’t a total loss.
I wish I were crafty like that!!! I may try my hand at it lol❤️
I bought these yesterday and the earrings posts, and they were earrings in less than 5 minutes.
Oh my gosh!! Thanks for sharing!! I’m going to Hobby Lobby again lol❤️❤️ love it!
I was able to get 3 pairs of earrings for less than $3.50 a pair.
That’s a deal!! 🙌🏼
