Over the Knee Boots

Hello Hello!!  Sorry for being absent for a little while there, I was trying to figure out my life and what I wanted to do.  Still haven’t quite figured it out but I know one thing I want to do, I want to move to a bigger city so I will try to make that happen.  In the mean time I will try to not be an absent blogger in the future.

So have you guys ever found an item of clothing that you absolutely loved but talked yourself out of buying because you don’t really need it?  Well I have done this a few times and most recently with a pair of over the knee boots.  I love them and every time I saw someone on instagram wearing them I wanted them even more.  But I didn’t buy them every time because I figured I had a pair kind of like them, which I did have a pair of over the knee boots already in grey.

So I just kept the page up on my browser and would look at them every so often and think about buying them.  Then one time I looked and they were on sale, 40% off.  I would link these but they appear to be all sold out.  They are Vince Camuto over the knee boots.  So what I love about these are the details on the top and around the ankles.  They are these laser cut out pieces that add a lot of extra detail to boots that would otherwise not have any.  So long story short after a debate I bought them.  So happy about this purchase.

Now they are suede so you do have to seal them before you wear them in order to protect them from the elements.  I have used a few different products to do seal my suede clothes and shoes and have been happy with it, this one or this one.

But once I sealed these boots and it wasn’t raining out, I was all about wearing these boots out and about.  The suede is seriously the softest I have felt and they just feel luxurious.  I love wearing them, I wore them on back to back days at work, no regrets.  Yes it is getting warmer out so I am trying to get as much out of them as I can before I retire them for the season.

I will say that they are a little tight on my calves, I thought I would have a little room but once I put on skinny jeans there is not much.  They are for 15 inch calves which should provide me with enough breathing room but I think they are a little smaller then 15 inches.

Let’s Be Real For Sec

Hello Hello!!  Not that I am not real in all my other posts, I genuinely do wear everything that I tell you about and have an opinion and want to help everyone out.  I just want to take a minute to talk about high heels at work.  Now the question is don’t you wear heels all the time?  Yes and no.  I do wear heeled boots fairly frequently at work but these have block heels which are easy to walk in.  I don’t typically wear high heels to work I do once and a while and I am counting high heels as like over 3″.

Every once in a while I will have an outfit that I just don’t want to walk out the door in anything but heels.  Heels at work is hard because it is an 8+ hour day a work which is much more then a night out.

First, yes I do wear work pants every once and awhile, I will walk about these pants in another post but this one I want to talk about shoes.  I love these shoes, they are a great nude color and typically these are my fancy dress shoes.  They have about a 3 and a half inch heel.  I typically can wear these for a night out with out any issues.


Here is a quick side view of the heels.  Now when I was leaving the apartment I had a thought, what if I can’t wear these all day?  Now I was in the just put on the shoes confident mood so I was just like no, way I am wearing these all day and besides I have a desk job how hard could it be.  After that I had the second thought that I had meetings on different floors which meant stairs.  So right before I left I grabbed a pair of toms in case I didn’t make it all day.

Spoiler:  I did not make it all day in these shoes, I made it to 2:30pm, through all my meetings and after the last one I got back to my desk and my feet were just like I quit.

So this is where I ended up at 2:31pm at work, I cannot say I am upset about the choice to bring an extra pair of shoes.  My feet got a break and it was really nice.  I love these Toms.  Also, it was like a totally different look for the day, took the outfit from very businessy to casual at work.

Actually when I got complimented on my outfit it was because of these shoes so how knows which outfit is actually better.

Wardrobe Basics

Hello Hello!!  So there are a few items of clothing that everyone should have in their closet, you know like a little black dress, a trench coat, a great pair of jeans and an amazing pair of heels.  (Obviously I am talking about a women’s wardrobe).  One item that I think is essential to an office wardrobe is a great button up shirt.  I buy this shirt from express and honestly it is amazing.  It can be worn business formal, business casual and just anywhere you want.

What I love about this shirt that I have not seen in a lot of other button up shirts is what I will call wearability.  So this shirt is not stiff, it allows so much movement and breathability that I cannot say how awesome that is to have at work.  This shirt is made of semi-sheer fabric which allows it to not be stiff and does not show wrinkles.  Which if you work in an office you will know how amazing that is, especially if you are like me and are hot and cold and are putting cardigans on and off all day.

So yes I do own this in 3 colors.  I originally bought it in blue and didn’t think too much about it.  But after wearing it a few times I realized how awesome it is.  Then I got annoyed that I bought it in blue, a less versatile color.  I love blue I do but I cannot wear it with everything.  So I have been watching this shirt for a few months waiting for it to go on sale so I can pick it up in black, then I thought having it in white would be great too.

So over Thanksgiving Express had a sale for 50% off everything so it was like a 2 for 1 deal and I bought in the white and black.  There is currently a sale at Express and it looks like 50% off again.

I wear this shirt all the time, I wear them in the same week and sometimes think I should stop but then I think no one will notice.

What is business casual for women? Winter Edition

Hello Hello!! I have wanted to do another one of these post for awhile, I got a lot of positive feed back on the original that I thought it would be good to do another one.  Business causal is such an ambiguous term that I still am not sure what it fully entails.  Last week I was meeting with some lawyers for work so obviously I was wearing what I considered to be business formal (was wearing pants and a blazer) the lawyer called it business casual and I was just like sure.

So real quick I just want to give a shout out to the real work horse of my winter wardrobe, tights.  Now as I am sure a lot of you will notice I do not wear work pants, I just don’t like them and find them to be uncomfortable.  So I tend to continue to wear skirts and dresses throughout the winter which entails needing great tights.  I tend to pair these skirts with tights and boots throughout the winter.

Now I was going to change up how I do these, mostly because I have been running late in the morning recently so I haven’t had much extra time.  But I did actually take pics of my outfits this morning so yay!  Pat on the back for me.

Monday –


For full disclosure I wore a pair of brown knee high boots with this.  Without the tights I would not wear this skirt to work, why?  Well the length of the skirt is about 2 inches above the knee which on its own I think is too short.  A work skirt I feel should end at the shortest just above the knee.  But pairing the skirt with the tights the length is no longer apparent.  I added a very businessy black button up shirt on the top and it is perfect for work.  Do adding knee high boots take away from this being a business outfit?  In my opinion no, leather boots are very chic and adding them to a business outfit just adds to it.  (Now in a business formal setting I would probably not wear knee high boots).

Tuesday –

This dress is one of my more formal work dresses, if I paired it with a black blazer I would consider it a business formal outfit.  So this day it was about dressing the dress down a little bit.  Again I was wearing a pair of black tights and this day I wore low booties.  I added this burgundy waterfall cardigan to add some color to the outfit.  The cardigan while on its own is very nice, it made the very formal dress become more business casual.  Then I added some gold jewelry to brighten up the outfit.

Wednesday –

I consider this to be one of my best skirts, it has this great A-line fit, HAS POCKETS, and is amazing almost year round.  The skirt is really great paired with tights and sometimes I will tuck a sweater into on colder days.  This skirt has business written all over it.  When I pair it with a crisp white button up, this is business casual to a T.  The outfit is not too formal to be considered business formal, I would add a great black blazer to get there.  To be a little more casual change these heels out for a pair of black flats (or red flats to make a statement).

Thursday –

So for whatever reason Thursdays I tend to have a lot of meetings so I do tend to dress up a little bit more.  So again here is the sidewalk skirt (I wore it on Monday in a different color, I own 3 of them), paired with black tights.  I wore this brown skirt with a navy dressy tank tucked into it.  Since I do have a lot of meetings I added, what I call, my casual blazer.  This blazer is great because it is cotton and not stiff at all so when I wear it I don’t feel like I am wearing a blazer.  As I have said before you can dress this down more by changing the heels out for flats or knee high boots or booties and it will still be a great business casual outfit.

Friday –


Wait thats not business casual!!  Correct, Fridays are casual days at work so obviously I take advantage and wear jeans. I will talk about a question I have had for a few weeks about if these boots are appropriate for casual day at work.  So why am I asking this question if I have been wearing boots all the time?  Well these boots go over the knee, which are very in right now but there is a stimga with over the knee boots.  (When you think of them in your head you probably picture Julia Roberts in pretty woman with her black leather high heeled over the knee boots).  Which obviously these are very different, these are grey suede flat boots.

I wore them to work when I bought them not thinking too much about that they may not be appropriate.  A coworker walked by me in the hall and just said “Wow, those are some boots.”  We didn’t stop and talk so I was not sure what the meant but the rest of the day I was worried about maybe I shouldn’t have worn them.  And since then I hadn’t until this past Friday.  So what changed?  Well a few weeks ago on Friday, one of the higher up woman in the company I saw wearing very similar boots to mine only in black.  And when I saw that I was like well I am going to wear mine again next Friday, try and stop me!!  Haha.

Also current for the next few days these boots are 50% off, they are amazing and I recommend them to any one.  Btw I have 15 inch calves and I can wear them with skinny jeans no problem.

Got Me Some New Booties

Hello Hello!!  So if you pay attention to my instagram or the photos I post on here you will probably notice that these are not exactly new but I have not posted about them so I thought I would now that I have worn them a few times!  So I was looking for a pair of flat booties since all the ones I currently own all have heels.  Now as you can see I failed at doing that since these do have heels.  Damnit!! haha.  But sometimes you cannot pass up a great pair of shoes.


These boots are amazing.  I was actually a little concerned with how high the boot shaft went up, I was expecting them to have a shorter shaft.  I was a little worried about how to style them since all of my other booties are shorter.  But I have been styling them the same as my other booties and have been wanting to wear them with some leggings to show off my legs.

So there is no zipper on these which is kind of annoying but there is enough stretch in them to get them on and off with ease.  I have worn these all day at work and I have worn them all night when going out.  I am going to say that I am very good in heels but these were very comfortable and I had no issues wearing them.

I would recommend these boots to you, they are very comfortable and look really good when I wear them out.

Making casual clothing work in the office setting

Hello Hello!!  This is all about wardrobe maximization, I am going to share a few items that you would not expect to be able to wear in a business setting and how to make them work for you.  This is all about acknowledging what is making the piece of clothing casual and working to mitigate that with your other clothes.  I am going to show you a few ways that I did this.

The Casual Fancy T-Shirt


Now yes this is a nicer shirt than a graphic T-shirt but I would never recommend wearing a graphic T-shirt in a business casual setting.  So the fact that this is a little nicer then a regular T-shirt allows it to work in a business setting.  So what is stopping me from wearing this to work by itself?  Well first it is still a T-shirt and second the bottom of the shirt is just adds to the very T-shirt vibe.


Alright, so my fixes are first tuck the bottom of that shirt into a really great skirt, it does not have to be a super businessy skirt (this one is not) but adding the skirt some tights and a pair of heels really does take the casual away from the shirt.  If you still feel like the shirt you picked is too casual add a cardigan or blazer and that will take away the sleeves.

The Crop Top


First let’s state the obvious, this is a crop top and it is meant to show off your belly.  So you would not want to wear this just by itself to work (even on a casual day)  No one in the HR department wants to see your belly.

So my fixes – well you need to take away what makes it a crop top by tucking in the bottom.  So the skirt that you pair it with should be high waisted.  As well as the skirt’s waist band should be good so that the bottom of the shirt does not slip out.  That is the one tip I have, is to be careful with this shirt slipping out.  As well as be careful with skirts that have an eye hook on them.  Otherwise this shirt is pretty appropriate as long as you hide the fact that it is a crop top.

Waterfall Cardigan


So this one is not too hard but I do have a few that have some pretty bright patterns on them.  I love these cardigans because it is like wearing a blanket. I like wearing it under coats because it sticks out and looks cool.

So paired the cardigan with one of my most businessy dresses.  Doing this kind of evens each piece out and the outfit is a perfect business casual outfit with a flare of personality.  I belted the cardigan to keep it a little bit more under control.  Easy to remove the belt at your desk and get more of a blanket affect.

New Vest

Hello Hello!!  So last fall there was this really cute vest that was everywhere.  It was tweed and had pockets and looked really great all around.  I found it on a boutique site but it was kind of expensive and I had already bought a vest so I decided not to buy it.  This year I saw the vest again, but it was on Amazon and it was a fraction of the price, this vest.

I really like this vest because it has pockets which are really key when you are trying to walk the dog and not take a purse.  That is the main reason that I bought this vest to be able to wear on walks.  Working it into the rest of my wardrobe is just icing on the cake.

I usually do not like the puffer vest look because I just don’t think that it does anything beneficial for the female figure.  Which for the most part I still think is true.  This vest is an exception, it is not very puffy but it is still warm as well as the tweed pattern.  These combine to make a really great buy.  I highly recommend this vest.
