Hello Dolls,

I don’t know how I ever survived without a pair of over the knee boots. I feel that they are a wardrobe staple, and if you don’t have a pair – well you better go out and get one. I love them in all shapes and sizes: flat for casual looks, heeled for a night out, wedges that are comfortable, and even peep toe to wear all year round!

 I have an amazing pair of boots that I got from Shoe Dazzle. They are wedges so they are super comfortable and they keep me really warm in this weather. I’ve worn them a few times this season and I can’t seem to get enough!

It is actually really hard to find the right pair of boots, so as promised, here are my favorites along with an outfit I recently wore with mine.

Thank you for reading!

Hello Dolls,

When it’s cold outside and you can’t seem to stay inside on a Friday night, what do you do? You pull out your favorite over the knee boots, pair them with a vegan leather skirt, and top it all off with a faux fur coat to keep you warm and fabulous! At least that is what I did this past weekend. We went out for a friends birthday in 10 degree weather, and guess what, I was nice and toasty! I actually started out the night wearing tights under the skirt and then had to take them off because I was getting a little too warm.

Because I am so obsessed with over the knee boots, and because I love all of my readers so much, in my next post, I’ll be listing a range of the latest over the knee boots with links to purchase online!  I personally think I’m in need of another pair, so I may join in on the spree 😉

Thank you for reading!

Hello Dolls,

Winters in the DC area have not been very kind as of late, so you may wonder how I get myself through seasonal depression. By updating my wardrobe! Here are my 7 wardrobe must haves for this fall:


1. Leather skirt

I love leather especially in the fall and winter months. This season we are going to have a variety of faux leather items. As much as I love leather jackets and leather pants, my favorite for this fall is a skirt. Like this pencil skirt from Zara. If you look on their website, they have it paired with a hideous sweater. That is NOT what I would wear it with! Sometimes I wonder who styles for these companies. I would wear it with a crop top and pumps, or tucked in button down blouse.

Or this gem from Southmoonunder. Wine colors are my go to shade in the fall, I just can’t get enough.

2. Snake skin leggings

Snake skin leggings like these from Southmoonunder. I just got these last week and can’t wait to wear them with a poncho or sheer blouse. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably own a pair of black leggings, so why not spice it up this fall with a pair in a fun print like snakeskin!

3. Long sleeved crop top

Just because its cold outside doesn’t mean you have to put away your crop tops. I love wearing mine with high waist, below-the-knee pencil skirts, or high waist leggings. I love the sheer on this one from Revolve Clothing if you are looking for something classy yet sexy.

The lace sleeves are absolutely stunning on this one from Forever 21 and its only $14.80.

4. Black Boots

How can anyone ever survive the fall without a pair of black boots? I love wearing my boots with everything: skirts, leggings, jeans, shorts and tights – you name it, I have worn it, and I cant wait to pull out all my boots for the fall. I love suede, leather, over-the-knee, and of course riding boots. And don’t forget how warm these will keep you when you are wearing your mini skirts! I am absolutely obsessed with these suede black ones from Nordstrom! So hurry up and get yourself a pair!

5. Blazer

Layering is one of my favorite things about fall. Everyone needs the perfect fall blazer or even a couple. You have to have a black one that is versatile. I also love the rich fall colors like burgundy, brunt orange, navy blue, deep magenta, or military green. You can be wearing jeans and a t-shirt, and when you add a blazer, your outfit goes from simple to glam in no time. I couldn’t stick to just picking one fall blazer because you can have more than one perfect fall blazer, so click on the pictures and decide which one is your favorite.

6. Leopard print shawl

Layering a shawl over a blazer or sweater is always amazing. If you are not into animal print try another fall color like brown, burgundy, or a deep green color to add a little spice to you outfit.

7. Fall lipstick

Change up your makeup with the season as you change your wardrobe. Red wine lips for the fall and winter are a crowd favorite. My 3 favorite colors are: MAC Diva, Chanel Rouge Allure #40 La Sensuella, and MAC Dare You. Don’t forget to get a matching lip liner because most darker colors will look like they are running if you don’t line them. Diva is definitely the most dramatic one, but MAC Dare You and Chanel #40 are great for day or night.
