Matching Shoes and Bags: Atmos&Here Lola Ankle Boots With Skinny Jeans, Tees and Printed Scarves

Should you match your shoes to your bag? This is an old fashion 'rule' that seems to be rarely followed nowadays! I mostly have neutral shoes and bright bags, but when I do stumble across a matching pair of shoes and bag, it's fun to wear them together like I have below, with my tan ankle boots and Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

These Atmos&Here Lola tan ankle boots are new ones I purchased recently to replace my old ones that literally fell to pieces when I pulled them out of storage this autumn.

What I wore:

ScarfASOS crinkle oversized leopard print scarf
Tee: thrifted Mix Apparel black marle tee
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
Shoes: Atmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots (new purchase)
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I couldn't resist making all my accessories match in this outfit! With the bright red skinny jeans I thought the matching neutral tan ankle boots and MAB camera bag would be a good combination. The scarf was needed to keep me warm on a cooler Sunday morning as we went to church, and I think the leopard print, while not an exact match, compliments the bag and ankle boots nicely!

I kept everything else in my outfit neutral to let the red jeans shine - while I've never worn this particular black tee with the grey cardigan before, grey and black are colours I like wearing with these red skinny jeans.


Last worn: grey maxi cardigan, leopard print scarf, black tee, red skinny jeans, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag. First time I've shared the boots on the blog as they were a recent purchase.

Other ways to wear: grey maxi cardigan and maxi dress, leopard print scarf and ombre knit, black tee and pink shorts, red skinny jeans and matching scarf, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and striped skirt.

Perfect for pregnancy: red jeans in second trimester.

Why I wore it:

Another very similar outfit combination to the one above! Again I stuck with a cosy cardigan, printed scarf, black tee and bright skinny jeans, accessorised with my matching tan ankle boots and Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

With the bright green skinny jeans being such a burst of colour in my outfit I went with a plain black tee, similar to the outfit above. I added in another colour with the navy waterfall cardigan and geometric print scarf though. Such an easy outfit formula!

I really like the way the matching tan bag and shoes worked with the green and blue in the outfit, they are a nice neutral combination and this made for a simple outfit for a day with the boys, running errands and visiting the library and the playground.

How You Can Wear It:

If you have a pair of shoes that match a handbag, why not wear them together? You can add extra accessories like a scarf to your outfit to tie in the matchy-matchy even more, or use the matching shoes and bag to 'bookend' a colourful outfit like I have in the second outfit.

  1. I love a matchy-matchy accessory and yet I can't remember the last time I did this myself. I am always more concerned about pairing hardware then anything else. Gold must be accompanied by gold. So if I'm wearing gold necklaces, silver studs on some booties are out hahaha!

  2. The shoes and bag go so perfectly together! I love how you matched them with green and red on those outfits! ♥

  3. I always feel much more pulled together when my bag and shoes match (which they rarely do). It's not that I don't feel that I look good if they don't, but it feels like I put extra effort into it. I really like the colored jeans. I seriously need to wear mine more. My favorite is the second outfit just because I've always liked blues and greens together. Your scarves are beautiful and I love the camera bag style alot!

    Hope you have an awesome weekend!

  4. Although I don't do it much, I totally love the matching accessories look, and you look great doing it, Mica:) Those new boots are great, and definitely something you can wear a lot. LOL on those ASOS boots. 4 years with all those wears...that's pretty awesome:)
    Hope you and the family have an awesome weekend:)

  5. Yea, I have turquoise shoes that match one of my Marc Jacobs bags so I like to wear them together from time to time. That almond color is gorgeous! Loving both the looks

  6. My purse and shoes rarely match. The color of your bag and shoes is may favorite though - that cognac color is what I gravitate towards. Perfect in cooler months!
    Have a great weekend!

  7. Oh, it looks perfect how the accesoires in the first look match that wonderfully! Love your second look, too, you are so good in layering!

  8. Well, I do have one black bag and quite a few black shoes, so I think that is a fashion rule that I tend to follow unknowingly.

  9. The matching worked really well in both of these outfits! I never make a truly conscious effort to match my bag to my shoes but it happens from time to time mostly when I'm doing gray or black. Some of my shoes can be a little colorful otherwise.

    1. I'm the opposite - my bags are more colourful than my shoes!

  10. While I'm against any overly-strict rules about what we are "allowed" to wear, I do definitely approve of matching shoes and bags, especially when they are this cute and this lovely rich caramel colour. I think it really can make an outfit cohesive in today's styles, which can be a mish-mash of patterns and colours (your outfits are neither!).

    I really like the caramel with the green pants. Very nice combo!

    Have a wonderful weekend, Mica!

  12. Ah yes you are right no one does this anymore. But it is kind of fun. It seems today it is all about clashing prints and mixing and matching. You look great in both of these looks.

  13. Ooh, you look really pretty in blue! This is a fun topic! I think it's nice that we don't *have* to match shoes and bag now, but I also think it's still perfectly fine to do so! Sometimes it just makes the outfit look polished, and I think that's the case with both of your looks here!

  14. Oh I love the look of neutral shoes and a bright bag. Always looks superb!
    Happy weekend!

  21. I love how the colors of your outfits always go together. Oooh, I love the matching shoes and bag look! I can't pull that off because most of my bags are white @__@. I like that the camera bag can be pulled off for everyday use. I am in love with the navy scarf. It is great for so many different combos. Thanks for sharing the outfit inspo!

  24. It's supposedly 'summer' at the moment in the UK and I was thinking the other day that I can't wait till it's Autumn as I definitely think I prefer the fashion! Ankle boots are my absolute staple and there's just something really lovely about being cosy! I've never actually heard of the rule of matching your bag to your boots but if that's the case, I've been doing it all wrong! :-)

  25. I love matching shoes and bag styling! The contrast of tan with the red in the first look is so chic and dying over the second look. I adore the scarf with that jacket!

  26. Oh I haven't matched my bag and shoes for such a long time! Tan is a nice one to do this with though isn't it? I feel black is a bit too much sometimes, and tan is more versatile. Really like the combo with the red jeans!

  27. I truly never think to match my shoes and my bag. If they do match, it's purely coincidence! I love your tan booties--I could use a pair of flat booties like that for the wintertime (although it's currently like 95 degrees so I'm just not there yet haha!)!

  34. I never consider matching to be a rule, but it's always kind of fun when they do! Plus you can't go wrong with neutrals regardless.

  35. I don't know if I've told you, but I've recently discovered skinny jeans and I'm so happy I did! So much more flattering than my other bigger ones. I'm loving the red ones in your top photos!

  41. I find matching bags and shoes quite cute especially if they are of different colour from your clothes just like what you’ve done here. You pants are striking, their colours just pop.
