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.

Rachel Zoe Winter Box of Style Review

Hello Hello!!  Now I am going to be very honest that this box was not shipped very quickly so I was really annoyed that it barely came in time for the new year.  With that in mind I want to talk about the winter box.  Now I debate cancelling my subscription for this every time it comes up because it is a lot of money.  It is $99 for each season, which I can do but I always think it is a lot of money.

The winter 2017 RZ box of style is by far the best one I have gotten, it is my favorite.  I opened it and unwrapped everything and was just super excited about what Rachel Zoe picked.  I couldn’t wait to wear the accessories.

So what did Rachel Zoe send?  She sent a box clutch (I chose marble print), House of Harlow earrings (Yes Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow), faux fur scarf, liquid eyeliner pen, essential hydrating oil, and a planner.  (I am least excited about the planner, mostly because I use my phone but maybe it will force me to write things down more.

Box clutch

Ahh!! I love it!!  This is great, you could pick it in the marble with gold accents to black with silver accents.  Both were really amazing and I would not have minded either but I like gold more than silver right now so that is the one I picked.  This clutch is big enough for your credit cards, phone and any other essentials.  I also love that it comes with a cross body strap, so it is very convenient to carry when out.

Earrings

They are gold and skarlie and they dangle.  They frame your face so well.  These earrings are just so amazing, they can literally go with anything.  In the pic on the left I am just wearing them with a sweatshirt and they feel amazing.  The one downside is that they are a little heavy, but since I wear them out I am not too concerned about that.

In the words of Rachel Zoe from the unboxing video “No one is going to punish you for being glamorous.”   You tell it Rachel Zoe.

Faux Fur Scarf

Maker:L,Date:2017-8-31,Ver:5,Lens:Kan03,Act:Kan02,E-ve

This scarf makes me feel so fancy and put together when I go out in the winter.  I am not normally a scarf person, I for the most part only wear them in the winter and think they get in the way the rest of the time.  This scarf is great, it is warm and a perfect length. Long enough to be beneficial but not too long to be in the way.  I love that one has a hole so you can thread the other side through it.

Others (eyeliner, hydrating oil and planner)

Don’t get me wrong I love these two but much harder to take a picture of.  The eyeliner is really great, creates a nice smooth line.  I use eyeliner every day so I use it all the time.  Hydrating oil is supposed to replace your lotion, I am not really a fan of the peppermint smell but it does work.  The planner is making me try to organize my life a little more.  It has these great quotes in it every month.  Here are a few,

Rachel Zoe: “style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”

Meryl Streep: “be strong enough to let go and wise enough to wait for what you deserve”

Diane Von Furstenberg: “life is very short. insecurity is a waste of time”

Grandpa Cardigan

Hello Hello!!  What is up?  For those of you not too busy watching the game (any body outside of USA may not know it is SuperBowl Sunday) I am writing a quick blog post about a cardigan.

I call it my grandpa cardigan, I think the product description said boyfriend cardigan but it reminds me of a sweater my grandpa used to wear so that is what I am going to call it.  This is the cardigan it looks super light which it is but it still manages to be one of the warmest cardigans I own.  Now I actually would not recommend buying it now, I would wait I think Amazon owns the brand so I would check back on one of Amazon’s big sale days to see if it goes on sale.  I bought it for about half the price on one of those days, totally worth it for $30, not so much at $60.

I bought it in grey and love to wear it unbuttoned and open like this. I think it really compliments any wardrobe because it is lose.  I enjoy wearing it with a v-neck shirt tucked into skinny jeans because the cardigan is long enough that it will cover up my butt.  I have been wearing it to work as well, I have been mostly wearing it like the middle picture.  I wear it with one of my skirts, it will dress it down a little bit but still be business casually appropriate.

Outfit from Friday night going to dinner and a movie with a friend.  Layered it up with one of my leather jackets, loving the look and will probably wear it more.

Wait, you had a date?

Yes, yes I did!  And now lets all take a minute to look at the date category and reminisce about the last time I had a date.  Haha, it was awhile ago, please feel free to find it humorous, I certainly do.  I do not go on dates often but I love dressing for a date, you can dress up a little bit without having to go super fancy of a more formal event.

I was way more excited about my outfit then I was about the actual date so who knows about any future dates at this point.  But seriously the outfit, I was planning this in my head earlier in the day before this skirt even got delivered.  I wanted to wear this skirt and these boots so badly, but they do come off as dressy so I was really looking for a shirt to down play that.  I went with this cute plaid shirt that I rolled up the sleeves on and gave it a more casual vibe.

This skirt, is amazing and I loved wearing it on the date.  I think it worked really well and gave off the casual but stylish vibe I always go for.  I want to look put together and fashionable but still be chill at the same time, especially on first dates.  This outfit accomplished that, the skirt is tweed and gives off a very put together vibe.  Paired with some over the knee boots and the plaid shirt gave the outfit the fashionable and casual look that I was going for.  I cannot wait to wear this outfit again, as well as the skirt and boots separately.  They are both very new and I am excited about them.

As a side note about this skirt it is great for every day as well as a date, it has an elastic waist so it will fit at your waist perfectly.  The fit of the skirt is A-line so it will compliment most women’s figures, while also not being too tight.  And best of all IT HAS POCKETS!! Pockets that you can actually fits stuff in which was a very nice surprise when I opened my package

I paired the skirt with my brand new over the knee boots, which really elongated my legs, I actually felt like my legs were longer in this outfit.  This was really nice because as I have stated it is cold here so having boots that came up over my knees and almost met the bottom of my skirt was amazing when I was outside.

So the skirt is only available in a few sizes, yea I know super sad… But I did see these other skirts that are similar and come in a bunch of colors, including black.  Also I would size down they seem to run large and they have an elastic waist so for more usage I recommend a smaller size.
