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!
We just touched down in Cali! We’re in San Diego for a couple days because we’re going to the Breeder’s Cup at Del Mar racetrack and then we’re going to drive up the coast and spend a couple more days in LA. I’ve never been to California at all before so this is a definitely a treat! Be sure to follow along on IG and Instastories because I will be sharing lots of god bits from our trip! We spent the day today wandering around Pacific Beach and La Jolla. Not bad for a Friday! 🙂
I packed this polka dot dress to wear to the horse races Saturday so I thought I would share some pics with you all from the last time I wore it to a party during Fashion Week. I think the print and the ruffle layers make it so fun and the deep v gives it a little sass. This time around I will be wearing it with the tie sash it comes with around the waist, but here I decided to pair it with a statement belt. && guess what, it’s under $100! [wearing an xs]
It would make the perfect little dress to grab for a holiday party! I suggest swapping the statement belt out for the ribbon tie belt the dress comes with and adding a fun pair of red earrings. You could stick with a heeled OTK boot or go for heels depending on how formal your event is! ps, these boots are on major sale and would be perfect.
Happy Friday, babes! We made it to the weekend yet again. Have a good one. Muah!
Real life: This week has been a trying and long one. But, we’re on the flip side of it now because it’s….FRIDAY! && I am really excited to share this outfit with you.
I ordered this sweater immediately when I saw it online. The texture and shape sold me! I decided to try it in ivory and I love how neutral it is. I ordered this in a small and thus, was able to get by with it as a dress too.
And I will definitely pair it with tights, leggings & jeans too! The options with an oversized sweater like this are endless.
I wore this exact outfit last weekend to an engagement party. As the night got cooler I added a grey cashmere poncho over the top.
I got these exact boots last season but they have certainly paid off. My suggestion?–make sure you have a chunky heeled pair in your closet. They go with so many outfits and can be worn for hours!
I am all about a tunic sweater that has a cute shape but is still over-sized! I’ve found that those are ones I reach for week after week because they can be paired with leggings, jeans or fitted work pants. And I am telling you, this one is just SUCH a good feeling sweater.
I am all about neutral sweaters but I am also crushing on this burgundy color this season! I love how it pairs with black. However–the marled grey color option is goooood & you can also shop it in black/tan here as well! [wearing a small]
I added a little sass to this circle hem sweater with my FAVORITE over-the-knee boots and a black velvet choker last Friday when I wore it out with Ethan for a Friday night date night. We grabbed pizza and drinks at our favorite place!
Hope you all are having a good week–thanks for stopping by!
I almost ordered this sweater a couple months ago. I had it in my cart and then eventually deleted it BUT I came back around to it when searching for a new cream sweater and I am SOOO glad I did. I can’t say enough good things about it.. perfect length in the front, super soft, really warm, and the slit in the back is the perfect size (I didn’t want it to come up too far and show skin). It comes in a red and a stripe version too. All I have been wanting to wear lately are neutrals and I was excited to trade in some of my Christmas-y scarves for some light colored basics. I ordered this one shown above and this light colored plaid and this neutral herringbone. I was so pleased with all of them when they arrived–& now I’m wearing one of the three just about everyday (guilty)! If you’re in a little cold weather slump then order one to brighten up your wardrobe. They certainly have helped me get dressed and out the door on these chillllly days!
We got our first snow in Kentucky last night and we’re supposed to get oodles more later this week. I have to admit, all I am thinking as I type that is.. gosh I better stop and get some more rose´ tomorrow. #snowstormessentials Stay warm & safe!
