Let’s face it, when it comes to the fall and winter season, boots are going to be the shoes of choice. I love boots and I have them in all different colors. Plus, I have them in several different styles including open-toe, military, ankle, and over-the-knee. The area that I have struggled in when it came to wearing boots was how to wear them with a dress. There are just some occasions when only a dress will do and the right style of boots can really make the difference. In the picture above I have paired a pair of black pointed-toe ankle boots with a pair of textured tights.
But, with this maroon sweater and skirt combo, I went with a pair of brown block heeled knee boots. The skirt is a midi and the length of the skirt called for the higher boot. If I had worn an ankle boot with this look it would have made my legs look like stubs. Instead, the solid color scheme made me look taller and that is usually a good thing. This black sweater dress hit me right at the knee level. With this look, I decided to wear the same ankle boots that I have on in the first picture, but with a pair of sheer black hose instead. The sheer hose makes the look more elegant which was what I was looking for with this look. In this look, I opt’ed to wear a pair of knee boots with a shorter dress that hit me well above the knee. Yes, I could have used a tan but the boots were cute. Lol! I was hoping that everyone would notice the boots and forget all about my “ghostly” white legs. I could have just said that I was going as a ghost for Halloween and I was getting in costume. Hahaha! This is a pair of over-the-knee boots by Tommy Hilfiger. I love this pair for the color and also because of the low heel. I decided to wear them with a striped sweater dress and cardigan that just meets the top of the boots. How many of you own a pair of over-the-knee boots? How do you wear yours? Here is another look at a shorter dress and a pair of knee boots. I am not sure if it is the length of the dresses or the style of the dresses, but I think I look younger in those photos. Is that my imagination? I am not talking “face” when I say younger, I am talking the overall effect. And, the last example for today is a dress and a pair of solid colored tights with a pair of suede ankle boots. Tights are very popular right now but I have not yet jumped on board the trend. What do you gurls think? Are you a fan of tights?
I know that today’s post is different from most of my posts. Joe and I both had a set back with our colds and if you could have seen me yesterday you probably would never follow me again. Lol! I didn’t get out of my pj’s all day long and I slept at least 3/4 of the day. I would wake up and eat and then go and lay back down. If I don’t feel better by today I am going to have to break down and go to the doctor. I have a birthday party to attend this weekend in Tennessee and I want to be feeling better to play with my grandchildren. Send me some good vibes, I need them. Plus, some chicken soup would be nice too. Lol!!!
