Shopping has always been a bit of a challenge for me. I think that’s a pretty common feeling for most women out there. And it can sometimes be a real downer. But I refuse to let it be! My weight changes almost every month which makes some items a little difficult to wear. Some months I fit perfectly into my jeans and other months…not so much. Even when I’m wearing my stretchiest jeans, I still feel restricted. And that can be a little challenging come fall when jeans become a daily staple. But instead of pouting and getting frustrated, I have found a look that is my FAVORITE for fall. And no matter how much my body changes month to month, I know this look will always make me feel my best and my most confident.
That look includes two things – a high waisted skirt and a pair of over-the-knee boots. This look makes me walk with my head held a little higher and keeps me feeling comfortable all day long. No leg restriction, no squeezing and jumping into a pair of jeans, and no feeling like I’m going to pass out from poor circulation issues. Nope. This skirt and boots lets my legs breathe while giving the illusion that they are longer than they actually are. And who doesn’t love a good illusion?
And luckily Nordstrom has A TON of high waisted a-line skirts perfect for fall so I can sport this kind of look every single day of the week…that is, when I’m not wearing pajamas. Let’s be real here. I recently found Topshop button down skirt that has POCKETS! Why do women crap the bed over pockets? Me include. Pockets make everything better, especially the perfect little skirt. What I love about this skirt so much is that it gives you a waist, even with a sweater, then the a-line gives the body an hourglass shape without restricting or making you feel like the seams may burst (which I’m experiencing with jeans at the moment). Then when the skirt is paired with over-the-knee boots, the height of the high waisted skirt pair with the length of the boot creates a long, lean look. Instead of sweaters and jeans that sometimes create bulk, this look creates length!
But let’s also talk about these Steve Madden over-the-knee boots. Because THEY ARE AMAZING! And believe me, I don’t say that about many boots. Because I find almost all heels, boots and booties uncomfortable. Maybe I just have weird feet. Actually, I DEFINITELY have weird feet. But these boots are fantastic. The heel height is perfect for creating a little height without putting too much pressure on the foot. And since I don’t know very narrow feet, these stretch boots keep your feet feeling comfortable and not restricted. I don’t know if I’ve ever felt this comfortable in a pair of boots like these, I’ve always just tolerated them. But these boots…they’re amazing. All day wear kind of boots.
