Proud to be a Mott & Bow Affiliate. All opinions are my own.
This fall I fell in love with Mott and Bow's super comfy high rise black skinny jeans (Bond Jean - review here, shop here). The first pair of high rise jeans I've owned and the first pair of black jeans. They felt so chic.
Mott And Bow Women's High Waisted Skinny Jean Review - Beekman
These cotton blue jeans are made of 95% cotton, 4% poly, 1% elastane. They are a heavier weight jean than the Bond and definitely have less give, but they look so, so good!

After your first wear you will settle right into these light blue jeans. I love the wash on these as it feels classic and timeless and adds a pair of lighter pants into my closet which is predominately black and dark blue. The ankle opening is quite narrow (as you'd expect for skinny jeans) so if that is a concern for you, but you want a lighter wash jean, you may want to try the Mott & Bow Jane Jean.

I'm still doing almost everything from home as far as work, volunteering, and socializing at this time, which is actually ideal for breaking in a new pair of leather boots. I wear them all over the house, at the desk, doing laundry, etc.
I've actually worn them for 5-12 hours each time and have never had any blisters or real "hot spots" which can be common when breaking in new shoes.
Granted, I believe that the way you walk around your house differs from how you walk when you're out and about. If I was going out I would wait until they are fully molded to my feet or just for short periods of time until they are.
The top of the shaft where it hits against my shin is the one part that feels stiff on me out of the box which is expected unless you're wearing sock booties.
It definitely helps to wear some taller socks when breaking this area in. Alternatively my favorite skinny jeans and leggings work great for adding a little cushion as the shaft breaks in and the gentle creases form in alignment with the way you move.
When I was younger I used to want everything to look totally perfect and pristine, but I am learning to embrace every unique crease that develops on these booties and the way leather changes with time. They are all part of my story, just like every wrinkle and laugh line gained over time.
When it comes to the Dari Boot I decided to size up to a size 9 from an 8.5 for a few reasons.
First, I wanted to be able to wear socks with this boot, so I needed to account for that.
Also, sometimes I pop in insoles (like these cozy sheepskin insoles) or little ball of foot cushions (Sheec review here) In case the slope is steeper than expected or I plan to do a lot of walking and want extra comfort.
Finally, the pointed toe is my favorite shoe silhouette hands down, but can sometimes compromise space in the toe box. Often just sizing up half size will give you so much more comfort!
So overall I'd say the Dari Boots fit true to size, but size up if your foot is on the wider side or you want to wear thicker socks etc.

More On Shoes:
Tradlands is a brand I discovered in the last few years as I began my personal style journey and endeavored to shop more intentionally all around.
They have some really high quality pieces and some iconic designs that come back season after season. I actually love this about the brand. It’s the whole idea of slow fashion -- not turning over so many new designs you can’t keep up as a consumer.
Tradlands focuses on designing really solid pieces that become so loved they can keep bringing them back because you’re going to want that in another color.. or you want to save up to make a responsible clothing purchase. Or your best friend heard you raving about it all year and now they’re ready to make an investment.
Huge thanks to Tradlands for gifting this sweater! Stay tuned for more styling ideas featuring xxs tradlands shelter cardigan in birch.
In the mean time you can see all available sizes and colors of the Shelter Cardigan on the Tradlands website.
How To Save Money On Tradlands Clothing
- You can use Shop Pay to split your purchase into 4 equal and interest free installments, which may be really helpful for you! You can fill wardrobe gaps a couple times a year and spread the expense out instead of having it hit at once. Score!
- Also check out the worn well exchange where you can find pre-loved second hand Tradlands pieces at a discount or even sell you previous Tradlands pieces for store credit or cash.
- Second hand used clothing sites and apps at times have Tradlands pieces. I bought a Tradlands Chambray Shirt Dress on Poshmark (use Discount Code MJRS_6913) and it made me fall in love with the brand along with renewing my faith in button up shirts.
- As far as Tradlands discount codes are concerned, they do pop up from time to time. They have great sales periodically like their recent 30% off summer sale coupon. I do try to share Tradlands sales when I can so I can help you save on whichever Tradlands piece you’ve been eyeing! Hope it helps! :)

Mott & Bow Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater Willow in Black, $149
I love a good turtleneck in the wintertime and my black one is probably on it's last season. Actually, I said that last season, but I may be able to squeeze one more out of it. We'll see! It is not my ideal blend of fabric, so when I replace it I will definitely be factoring fabric in like this cashmere turtleneck from Mott & Bow.
