I never felt that I could pull off the jeans tucked into boots look.  Somehow I always felt it looked dated as though I had never stepped out of the 70s.  Last fall, I bought a pair of Hunter boots, and started wearing them with leggings and long sweaters.  I loved the look so much, this fall I've vowed to give the jeans and boots thing another try.  I think the key to it working for me this time was the fact that I stuck to a flat riding boot.  It gives the look a much more modern casual look than a stacked heel.  This is an ideal outfit for someone with an apply body type.  Keep the top loose and flowing with a loose-fitting tee and super soft, draped leather jacket while keeping the bottom more fitted with these dark wash mid-rise jeans.  If you are on the shorter side, though, you won't want to tuck the jeans in, so go for a boot cut and wear them outside of the boot.  As usual, there is a Buy Now button to the left if you'd like to order the bracelets.  I'm intrigued by the description of Flash by Jimmy Choo, which contains pink pepper and is described as sophisticated, provocative, and magnetic.  Who doesn't need a little of that?
