I mean really...they are so much fun! I love wearing them. These pants are a recent purchase that I am absolutely happy with. They are comfortable and they're gray...I love gray jeans. Gray creates another neutral along with brown and black in my opinion. Now on to the boots: I think that everyone needs a pair of combat boots. They can take a girly/feminine outfit and make it seem more relaxed. I paired them with "imitation" boot socks. The socks are actually sleeves from old sweaters that my mother bought me from Goodwill. Just cut the sleeves off and viola! You have easy slip on boot socks that aren't as bulky as the ones that you see on Pinterest.
