Shoes every girl needs — Over-the-Knee Boots!

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!

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!



Cozy UGG Slippers for Home

There are some items I buy that I love but I know I wont get that much wear out of.  Some things just require an occasion that doesn’t occur everyday.  However–totally not the case with these pieces!


If I’m being honest, the very first thing I do when I come in the door at the end of the day [besides greeting the fur babies] is change into comfy, loungy clothes.  Case in point.. I have these pants and these UGG slippers on right now as I type this post for you all, seriously! [see below for more options that also fit this mold!]


I love a good mocassin to wear around the house.  In fact I have these and I wear them lots but I was really wanting a pair of true slide-on slippers.  They’re perfect to keep right by the side of your bed or at the bottom of the couch because you can just slip them on in half a second before you hop up and get to avoid the cold floor all together.  [Now not only do I sound lazy but I also sound kinda old, don’t I?  But I don’t even care.  They make me that happy, ha!]  And since they’re made by UGG, I know they will last.  I’ve had my other mocassins for 9 years.  Yep, 9!  How crazy is that?!


These would make the PERFECT gift too. (Plus–hello free shipping from Nordstrom, heyyy!  Always a plus.)  When I was younger, we got some sort of pjs each year from my Granny & Pappyo.  As soon as we opened them we put them on.  I feel like I would revert right back to my younger self if I opened these on Christmas morning.  They would immediately go on my feet! [I sized up,  I’m wearing an 8]  Mine are the Chestnut color option.


I wish you all could feel these pants.  They’re pretty amaze.  Like a thin, soft fleece material–super soft.  They come in several other colors too.  [wearing an xs] I will definitely be trying more items from this brand that I came across at Nordstrom.  Oh, and this sweater also comes in a really festive red color option!  It’s the perf amount of oversize and slouch!

FYI–snag this mug because it’s a great stocking stuffer or friend gift.  Under $15!
