It started with, “Mom Edit is better than this,” and then, “They aren’t doing you any favors,” to, “I’m not a fan of how bulky they look,” and finally “This is kind of all to the no.” (Tell me how you really feel!)
UGG Over-The-Knee Boots Are Just Right For Winter
OK, I get what you guys are saying — these aren’t exactly the sexiest over-the-knee boots ever. But that’s not the point…they’re like a warm hug on my feet (and legs). They’re SO comfy, SO warm and, for me, they solve a huge problem: I’m always cold. Like fighting-with-my-husband-over-the-thermostat cold. And in a year when social distancing requires us to spend more and more time outdoors in a climate that is WINTER most of the year, these are my solution.
Sure, I could grab my Stuart Weitzmans and look all kinds of cute while freezing. And sometimes I can get on board with the whole sacrificing-comfort-in-the-name-of-fashion thing. But not this year. Not. This. Year. This year I will be wearing my UGG boots unabashedly, thankyouverymuch.
UGG Over-The-Knee Boots + (Faux) Leather Moto over Graphic Tee & Jeans
When I’m not wearing straight up loungewear, I’m usually in a graphic tee and jeans. It’s just easy, and I’m not really dressing up much these days. When I need to leave, I throw on these boots and this faux leather moto and I’m ready to go. Graphic tee + jeans meets UGG boots + this moto is going to be one of my go-to outfit formulas this fall.
Over-the-knee boots and leggings are an easy pairing, but over-the-knee boots and jeans can be trickier. Some over-the-knee boots are really tight and getting them over jeans can be a struggle — not these babies. These are literally the easiest over-the-knee boots to put on and take off ever. I love not having to sit down and struggle to wrench them off my feet and the fact that I can slip them on easily when we’re in a rush to get out the door (we’re always in a rush). They don’t require socks (love the soft lining) and I know I’ve mentioned this more than once, but they’re so. Freaking. Warm. They also have a hidden wedge heel of 2″ …just high enough to give me a little height boost without being too tall to wear all day long.
necklace: ABLE tag necklace–I pretty much never take this one off. One initial for each of my loves, and they sit nicely together, not all on top of each other.
bag: AllSaints Snake Embossed Leather Crossbody Bag–this one has a ton of slots for credit cards and a pocket for your phone . . . with a little room left over for a few essentials in the main pocket. (And it’s on sale for under $100!)
sunnies: Warby Parker Raider Sunglasses–I’ve never been able to get used to contacts, but my eyesight is getting worse as I get older. Prescription sunglasses are a must and I LOVE these aviators. (They’re available in multiple lens colors–I’m eyeing up that blue myself.)
