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.

Basics: Belts

Hello Hello!!  I want to talk about something that I personally do not really like but are necessary to every wardrobe, Belts.  And I am not talking fancy belts that can make your outfit look better.  I am talking about belts that actually keep your pants up.

So I have been vehemently opposed to belts.  I don’t really know why exactly maybe it is a combo of this.  First, I don’t really like the bulge they put right around your waist.  Like no I don’t need any more attention pointed in this direction.  Second, every time you go to the bathroom it is like this extra process.  And then, I cannot find a belt that functions as a belt but is also cute, you either get one or the other.

Lately I had a pant size that worked really well I did not need a belt to keep them on, they were prefect.  So what caused me to look into this again?  Well on black Friday I was buy pants, and yea the line for the fitting room was longer then the one to check out so I was only trying on a few and doing it as fast as possible.  So I tried on 2, I knew my size so no big deal.  But I picked the wrong length and just switch the pants and didn’t try them on again.  Turns out these new pants were a little loser then the other ones.

So yes these are the pants that I have been looking for an answer for but did not want to buy a belt.  Well I saw on amazon this buckleless belt.  And I had to figure out what this was.  So the first few times I was trying it out, it felt really weird, and I spent significant amount of time trying to get the size of the belt right.

So this belt is basically an elastic band that has snaps on both sides and a metal clasp to adjust the length of the belt.  So when you put this one the snaps go around the belt loops that are on either side of the button and you thread it through all the other belt looks.  So this is nice because you do not have any buckle in front, these snaps do not push out from the line of the body, and you do not have to undo and redo the belt every time you go to the bathroom.

Once I got the length perfect, this made the belt perfect.  So I wore this out last night and I had no issues.  It was a million times more convenient then an actual belt with a buckle. It made the pants really feel like they fit perfectly.  Given the price I would highly recommend at least giving this a try.


Especially since I was tucking my shirt, it was made all the more convenient.  Then with the snaps, I mean they do stick out but they do not look bad.  In the future I might do something to make the snaps not stick out too much.

Faux Fur Scarf

Hello Hello!! So I talked a little about this a few weeks ago when I reviewed the Rachel Zoe box of style. Well I have started to wear this, mostly because it is not unbearably cold when I need to wear a fleece scarf. I have worn this faux fur scarf and I love it. I think it adds so good depth to any outfit. Also it just makes any outfit look fancier.

I was going to a pretty casual lunch with a friend and I just added the scarf to the outfit. It looks amazing with the suede leather jacket. I know the jacket by itself is super fancy but add the scarf and it is amazing.

The jacket goes with the boots so well but when adding the scarf it kind of distracts that the shoes and jacket are matchy matchy.


It is a little bit harder to see here because of the black shirt but I loved wearing it. I have so much fun when I can add this to any outfit. It literally sits out next to my purse waiting for any day that I can just put it on.

Day Time Art Exhibit

Hello Hello!!  So there has been this really chill art exhibit showing in town and I have been dying to go.  I convinced a friend and we went a little before noon before I had to meet up with someone for lunch.

Now I tend to struggle the most with dressing for casual events with friends, typically I want to dress up too much.  When I am by myself I never have to think about the fact that if I dress up too much me and my friends will look like an odd couple.  So I actually tried on this outfit first and decided against it.

So it is a pretty dark outfit.  I love this top with the lace details on the front and the back.  Paired this with these dark blue jeans and heeled booties makes for a really cute outfit.  But given how dark the shirt is and how dark the jeans are it felt like this was a little more night appropriate.  So I decided to change the top.

I already had the jeans on and they were cuffed pretty good to work with the booties so I didn’t want to change those and start all over again.  I went into my closet looking for a different top that wouldn’t be as fancy.


I landed with a classic V-neck, this is actually one that I bleached out the graphic on it.  So this is one of my go to casual shirts, made even more casual by the fact that there is a graphic on the front.  Now that I am here I felt like it was too casual.  So what a predicament.

So I just decided to tuck the shirt in.  I love tucked shirts.  They are the best.  I pair them with skinny jeans and it gives a very different feel to the outfit.  I love the waist that I get when I tuck in shirts.  I feel like I get longer legs and a skinnier waist with these.

I Went On A Date!

Hello Hello!!  I know I know, surprise surprise I never go on these.  I am a little surprised to go on one.  But it has been like 5 months since my last one so I guess I was due.  Haha.  Maybe in the new year I will be more open to more people and go on more of these, but probs not.

Anyways, we went to this neighborhood of town where you kind of just walk about and get drinks and look at art.  So dressing for a date where we are going to be outside walking and then inside having some drinks was a little difficult, I don’t really enjoy being cold.

So I went with dark skinny jeans because I think they look best on me, I paired those with these grey over the knee boots that I love so much.  On top since my bottoms are so tight I wanted a looser top.  I wore this lose white top, it is a short sleeve top so I felt my my arms needed more protection even if I was going to wear a coat so I added my burgundy cardigan.  Then for extra added sparkle I wore this necklace.

As I said before the date plan was to send a significant amount of time outside, which in January isn’t the best idea so I needed a coat.


I wore my classic black wool coat.  I wanted to wear a hat so badly but I always feel like I cannot wear a hat on a date because it will mess up any time I spent doing my hair. So instead I wore this pho- fur scarf.  I really liked how it looked and thought it kept me warm enough without needing a hat.

Night On The Town

Hello Hello!! So I did not go home for the holidays, I chose to spend Thanksgiving with my family and fend from myself around christmas.  Well a few of my friends were also in town and away from their families so we went out.  This was one of those times where you choose to go last minute so you are changing from sweats into something much better.  I kind of just went into my closet and this is what I ended up with.  I am so happy about it, I can’t wait to wear them again.

I love wearing my loose tank tops tucked into my skinny jeans.  It just elongates my short legs (so I will take all the help I can get there), and makes my waist a little bit more pronounced.  I do love wearing a black skinny jean out, I think they just look the best and also hide any issues with my legs.

So as I stated it is winter here and I do get chilly so I added a cardigan to just make the outfit a little bit warmer.  It didn’t matter too much because no one was out that night, my friends and I basically had the whole bar to ourselves.  I didn’t take a picture but I wore this with my faux black leather jacket.  I did this because it was snowing a little bit and the jacket blocks the wind.

I loved how this outfit looked with these booties (I am biased because they are my favorite), but I think they looked amazing.

Favorite Work Casual Outfits

Hello Hello!!!  So my work has a policy that whenever the local school kids are not in school we can wear casual clothing.  This year went even farther we got two whole weeks of casual outfits.  I love these days because on the regular I usually live in work clothes or workout clothing. Casual clothes are my favorite outfits, I just feel like I have so much more fun when I get to pick whatever I want from my closet (within reason of needing to be appropriate at work).

So I do live where it gets below freezing and actually it went subzero so I was never more excited to see that I could wear jeans.  Jeans offer so much more protection against cold weather then anything I wear to work, mostly because I wear a lot of skirts and tights.  So here is a quick round up of my casual outfits.  Lots of boots and sweaters (remember it was subzero).

My favorite cardigan paired with my favorite booties.  And the best sweater I owned with these amazing flat over the knee boots.

So yes one day I did skip the sweater and wore this really comfortable long sleeve shirt (probably the softest thing I own).  And then we are back to the sweaters and boots.  This sweater I just got on sale at Loft I am pretty excited about this, I like that the bottom is curved like a shirt bottom.  Then these burgundy booties, I do not have an opinion on them yet.  But so far I really like them

And obviously on the coldest day I wore my biggest sweater to keep me as warm as possible, with my knee high boots.
