"As I’ve mentioned before, I have a problem with wearing only black. My goal is to break the addiction (laziness?) and these Coach boots are a huge part of my continual recovery.
The color, which is called ‘mink,’ is a dark, almost gray hue that pairs easily with warm reds and oranges or cool greens and blues. It also looks fantastic with cream, beige, and camel, my favorite neutrals at the moment. I love how the silver bead detail and the tapered heal give it a distinct look. These boots stand out whether I’m wearing a skirt, skinny jeans, flares, or a jumpsuit. Plus, it’s comforting to know that they also come in black, in case I’m ready to fall back into my all-black-everything ways. "
