Happy Wednesday friends!

Confession: I don't like traditional duck boots. 

You know, those traditional duck boots from LL Bean (also known as Bean boots?). There's nothing wrong at all if you do like those boots, but for me personally, I don't think they really fit my style. I never really thought duck boots were my thing or that I would ever add them into my shoe collection.... until now.

Flashback to two summers ago during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I was browsing the sale and found these duck boots by Sperry. It may be the color, the quilted design, or a combination of both that made me drawn to them. 

Unfortunately, they were sold out of my size and I wasn't able to pick them up. Now we fast forward a bit to this past summer for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and the same boots were part of the sale again (yay!!). I managed to snag the boots in my size at a great price and haven't looked back. It was probably a great sign from the universe to let me wait a year to purchase the boots and sit on whether I really wanted the boots or not after the excitement of the sale had died down. I'm a big believer in that everything happens for a reason!

Even though I've had these boots since the summer, I've only recently started to play around with styling these boots. Now that it's starting to cool down, I'm excited to play around with them more!

I decided for my first outfit styling with these boots I would go for the more simple route with a traditional fall look. Throw on a long sleeve tunic, buffer vest and blanket scarf with your duck boots and you have an everyday easy fall look. I can definitely see myself wear these more in the winter months, especially when it starts to snow (fingers crossed that we get lots this year!!). 

What do you all think about duck boots? Do you love them or hate them (which is perfectly fine! RJ still not a huge fan of these himself..)? Let me know in the comments down below! 

I hope you all have a wonderful day and a fantastic Thanksgiving tomorrow!! As always, thank you for stopping by and reading!
