I am absolutely obsessed with over the knee boots this season… I may be a little late to the game, but now that I’ve finally caught on, I’m really excited to learn how to style over the knee boots.
In the fall, I kept an eye out for an affordable pair. When it comes to pieces I’m excited about, I’m slow to buy because I want to be sure I make the right choice. (Sometimes too slow.) So my sister surprised me with a pair of over the knee boots for Christmas, and I love them. They’re mink suede (linked at the end of the post!).
Since Christmas, I’ve been referencing all the Insta posts I’ve “saved” for OTK boot inspo, and pinning over the knee boot outfits like a fiend to my Pinterest “style” board. I have a goal in 2019 to be more creative with my outfits – I’m too matchy-matchy and will sometimes pair the same pieces together over and over again, rather than mixing things up to create new looks. I don’t want to do that with my over the knee boots! I look forward to wearing them often.
Merry Christmas Eve to all! I hope everyone has an opportunity to rest and spend time with family and friends this week.
Today, I want to write about two of my favorite trends this holiday season – buffalo check and sherpa. (And how cute they look paired together!) I’ve seen so many cozy sherpa jackets on social media lately, and am absolutely loving this trend. Everything from sherpa pullovers, sherpa coats, cropped zip-up jackets – I’ve always been a fan of sherpa (who isn’t?! it’s so soft) so I knew I needed to invest.
There were a couple of options to choose from, but I particularly loved this cropped pocketed sherpa jacket from Vici (I’ve linked everything below). I think it’s an incredibly versatile piece – I could wear it over anything, really, but I’ve had a lot of fun pairing it with flannel and plaid.
When the holiday season rolls around, all I want to wear is chunky sweaters and pretty winter accessories; plaid scarves, knit beanies, tall boots. But the reality of living in Florida is that I’d be sweltering if I wore those layers because the days of cool temps are few and far between. There have been many years when I could have worn short sleeves to Christmas dinner!
This year, I’ve decided to embrace the “Floridian Christmas” so I’m prepared for my holiday parties. I’ve been on the lookout for pieces that are both weather appropriate and also festive. Luckily, I found these 2 gorgeous holiday tops at Vici!
