Let’s get straight to it–shoes that EVERY girl needs in her closet? Over-the-knee boots! They are hands down my most worn item because they are just so versatile. I wear them with jeans (as seen here), leggings, skirts & dresses. I wear them during the week & on the weekends. But I am not going to lie, finding the puuuuuurect pair was not an easy task.
You all know Nordstrom is my favorite large retailer to shop so I definitely went to their site when looking for a pair of tall boots to replace my $40 pair I found at Kmart (yes, I said Kmart) years ago. I tried several pairs and sent many back (TG for the free ship & return policy) before I landed on this Marc Fisher pair. I loved the shape of toe on this pair–slighted pointed with a touch of hardware–and the height of the boot–I wanted them to go up well above my knee but not be overwhelming. And I also love how they tie in the back and have a zipper on the inside of the ankle. This makes them easy to get on and off (you don’t need to lay down on the bed and beg someone to pull them off, haha) and the tie helps them stay put and not look slouchy or sloppy. They have also held up great! [wearing a sz 8, I always go up in boots so I can add thick warm socks]
It’s only Tuesday but I think this week will go by pretty quickly. We have several things to do around the house to prep for a little birthday get together we are hosting on Saturday for my 30th! Don’t you love having people over because it gives you that push you needed to get something done that you have been talking about for months? We had been wanting to redo the piece of furniture we use for a bar cart to make it more modern and last Sunday we finally got around to it! I will share the finished product and other tid bits on my Instastory this week. Hope you all are having a good one!
Oh, and just a side note–I think a over-sized sweater and OTK boots makes the perfect outfit for Thanksgiving day if your fam does a casual get-together. These pieces would be great to order!
I had been that girl complaining that the temps weren’t feeling Fall enough around here–until this past weekend that is. It took a turn for the COLD and I dealt with it by pulling out all my favorite beanies.
I wore this look to grab coffee and then go to lunch with Ethan yesterday after we got finished with a shoot. I had forgotten how cozy and warm a beanie can be! Totally makes a difference when in the chill when it’s windy outside. If you don’t have a couple in your closet then you should change that asap! I can be pretty picky. I don’t like slouchy ones and I always make sure they have a pom pom. I get a lot of wear out of this nude one and I also keep a basic black one in heavy rotation. && I have my eye on this one. Might have to order it next!
Today is my Mom’s birthday! HBD, Pam! 🙂 We are heading home to celebrate with her tomorrow night and then we leave for CA on Thursday so it’s going to be a busy week. I can’t wait! Hope you all have a good one. ps, I have a caaaa-ute pair of shoes to share with you all on Wednesday so be on the lookout!
I would like to say I’m in with all the people who are already moving right along in 2017, but in reality I am still dragging along this week. That’s not to say that I am not really excited about the new year and all the great things that are to come–I actually am! I just feel like I need the first couple of weeks of January to ease into it. So, that leads me to more casual wear! It’s all I have been wanting to wear lately and it has made me SO happy!
Case in point, this new distressed neutral hoodie. I am loving it! There are three color options & mine is the blush. It’s over-sized too so I know I will be wearing it lots with leggings this month. [wearing a 6 US and I could have easily ordered a size smaller]
Here are some other throw on and go hoodie options that I am crushing over:
&& I cannot say enough good things about these new tennies! Ethan is my tennis shoe guy.. he pretty much picks out all the pairs I end up getting and he told me these Tubular Shadows were the next big thing. When I looked them up I fell in love with the style. I was kind of wanting a pair in this dark green color scheme already so I was excited to see this option but I also love the grey! I suggest sizing down in these. I normally wear an 8 in tennies, sometimes a 7 1/2 and I got a 7 in these.
What sneaks are you all crushing on in the new year?
