OTK Boots!

I was asked about my taupe over the knee boots I was wearing in this post. Mine are actually two years ago from Steve Madden called the GORGEOUS. Those are sold out but here are a couple similar ones:

Hope you are having a good Friday! 🙂

Just Peachy

This is the second dress I got from Tosave, and guess what? This one was only $12.07! It is a long sleeve, loose, mini crew neck dress and it is just so cute. The fact that it is so simple means you can dress it up or down. I dressed it up with over the knee boots and a statement necklace, but it can also be worn with sandals, casual boots, booties, flats, or even extra casual with Converse and a denim jacket. The material is lightly textured which gives it a little something extra, and the layers I guess you would call them, or the block stitching, gives it a more unique look, like it has more details yet is still super simple. As you can guess from the style, it is super comfy. I love being able to dress up a comfy dress, it just feels so much easier.

Just like the last one (post linked here), I got this dress in a medium again because I am tall. The length of this one is perfect. It also comes in navy and olive, but I “pink” (this one is called pink but it is definitely more peach) because this will work great when the seasons start to change back to spring. I am usually drawn to the brighter colors but the other two are super cute too. Find the dress linked here!

Simple Sweaters

Lately I have been loving the simplicity of a pull over sweater. It doubles as a top and a jacket (if you’re in Cali for a winter in the 60’s). Often I have just been pairing a pull over sweater with a pair of slacks, throwing on a statement necklace or a scarf, any choice of booties, heels, or flats, and calling it a day. Like I said, so simple and easy, yet cute and comfy. I find myself saying that more often about my outfit choices: easy yet cute. Either my style has shifted to a more simplistic look or I’m just getting better at picking out quick outfits.

Anyways, this is one of those easy, cute outfits. I got this sweater from Old Navy the week of Thanksgiving (for 40% off woot-woot!) and I love it! The color is perfect and goes with so much. I bought the scarf from Old Navy too but a little while earlier and I was excited to see how well they went together. I wanted to wear my over the knee boots with it so I put on my black Maison Jules pants (from ages ago) that are the style of jeans but are not denim so I love that I can wear them to work. Voila, casual yet work appropriate. I was warm and comfy all day.

These Boots!

I have a new favorite pair of boots for the season, the dv for Target Marilyn Over the Knee Fashion Boots in Saddle Brown. I had been waiting to wear them because it hasn’t been cold until recently and I LOVE them! They just make any outfit look so much better no matter how casual it is, like this one. This is a loose, black long sleeve dress, you can’t get any simpler than that. I threw on the boots and a scarf and boom, check me out, I look/feel like I put so much effort into my outfit and I really didn’t. What is also great about these boots is that they are still comfortable with jeans and they run true to size (in my experience). They are casual yet the thick heel on them make them able to be somewhat dressy as well, which makes them great for the office, they look better than flat boots. Love. Love. LOVE.

The Perfect Plaid Dress

Happy Saturday everyone! I don’t know about you but I am so happy it’s the weekend, this week was kind of awful. I started getting sick last weekend so I couldn’t get all my blog pictures done that I wanted but I did manager to get one. This off white and black plaid fit and flare dress from Maison Jules is pure perfection. It is so flattering on, I felt so good. I basically stalked this dress until it went on sale. I paired it with my new over the knee boots by DV for Target and of course over the knee socks. I loved it so much I can’t wait to wear it again! Such a simple concept can make you feel so good, a dress, boots, and socks. It is a great winter office look or you can even add black or brown booties or heels to dress it up more for work. The over the knew boots  are great for a more casual look.

Blanket Scarf, Shift Dress, Over the Knee Boots, OH MY!

This outfit I have been waiting to wear forEVER! Even before I bought all the pieces I was still anticipating wearing it. I saw something similar on Pinterest and was so determined to make it my own! Looking on Pinterest, I pinned this 14 weeks ago! That is how determined I was!


When I have an outfit in mind, it tends to just fall into place. I know what I want so I will not settle for something less, so if it takes me a little longer to find it then it is all worth it for it to be perfect. I finally found the right dress when I was in Old Navy looking for a dress for Thanksgiving. The dress in the picture is more of a bodycon, but I wanted something looser. I found the perfect textured, black shift dress with three-quarter length sleeves, and was loose yet somewhat fitted. The kind of fitted where when you walked it would form to your body rather than flow. (It was also 40% so what other convincing did I need).

Next I got the boots. I have been seeing these over the knee boots all over Instagram and I wanted them! My go to is Macy’s because I have a Macy’s card (seriously so dangerous). I looked up Steve Madden and there they were, the GORGEOUS, but only black! I wanted the gray I kept seeing. I tell you I stalked the Macy’s website almost everyday. Finally when I checked for like the 50th time, they had another color! The picture looked gray but the description said taupe. BUT THEY ONLY HAD SIZE 9! Someone must have returned them. I didn’t give up though, I kept stalking. Finally they had all the sizes, yet the picture still showed gray but the description said taupe. I knew they were different because I did my research on the Steve Madden website, fashion is serious, some research required (lol!). I ordered them anyways, and if they came in and were actually taupe and I didn’t like them, then I could return them. Again, these were on sale too or I probably would not have bought them. Well they came in and were the perfect color, I was actually glad they were not gray because the tone of taupe they are can go with pretty much anything!

Lastly the blanket scarf. I remember Audree from Simply Audree Kate, said last year I think that she got one from Amazon. I searched and found one for $7! It kind of took awhile to come in but once it did, my outfit was complete! I just needed a place to wear it, when the perfect opportunity came, my roomie’s birthday (which is actually today- Happy Birthday!) but we went to brunch yesterday at the Saddle Ranch in Orange. It was a hit! Check it out…
