I’ve always liked the look of thigh high boots but never owned any for myself til I picked up this pair last November from local boutique Southern Muse. I wasn’t sure if the style would look right on me since I’m so short, but as soon as I tried them on I knew I had to take them home. My only disappointment? The wine color is a little harder to style with what I already own, so I don’t get to wear them as much as I would like.
The lower, square heel is what made the trendy boot wearable for me. I’ve tried some on with a higher heel and pointed toe but I can’t bear to get them because I know I wouldn’t last long in them. The style is saucy, but the more rounded toe coupled with the heel height is what makes them so wearable for day. I love wearing them with skinny denim (like I did here with one of my favorite floral kimono find from Target), but if I wanted to wear them with a skirt or dress, it would work as well.
Speaking of kimonos, they come through in the clutch on the days when you have no clue what to wear and/or are short on time. You can wear them with literally everything and style them so many different ways. This one was 2 sizes too big but I loved the pattern and went with it anyway. I almost belted it this day but ran out of the house without the belt so maybe next time. It’s designed to have a drapey fit, so it still works.
If you’re ever headed to dinner and need something to add a little drama to your look, seriously consider wearing a kimono. They’re perfect for so many occasions.
