Unlikely: Work Boots

These boots are classic, practical *and* adorable. The thick, distressed brown leather and utilitarian buckles clearly intend business, but the roominess of the ’sleeve’ and the short height read as ‘cute’. It’s footwear reminiscent of the rubber rain boots most of us had as kids, but tougher and more adult. What makes the boots even more appealing is the way these photos pair them with all kinds of lacy, ruffly dresses, creating ensembles that are feminine, but ready for anything.
