Style Diary – Over-The-Knee-Boots Style

Over-The-Knee-Boots Style

Over-the-Knee-Boots

Who doesn’t want a pair of these lovelies this season?  It looks like these beauties will be on again this fall and winter.  Black, taupe, camel – any of these colors would work beautifully with most outfits.

Where to Wear

Unless your office is quite chic, casual and creative, and wearing the latest trends is encouraged, then I would refrain from wearing over-the-knee-boots to the office.  Wear these boots to most social occasions.  The outfit above can be worn on a date, out with friends, to the movies, maybe a concert.

Investments

The coat, purse, watch and earings all fall in my investment bucket.  You could argue (which you really shouldn’t, because arguing is so not fun), that the boots can be an investment, and I may have to agree with you.  Maybe not a long-term investment, but certainly a short-term one.

Thoughts

Y’all, by now, know that I am a women of a certain age.  Having said that, I don’t think that I will be investing in a pair of over-the-knee-boots.  As much as I love the look, I do feel like this is one of those items that is best suited for younger ladies.  What are your thoughts?

Thanks for stopping by. 

Fondly, Sonya

Summer Date::Casual Event

State Fair Summer Date

Summer Blues

I’m loving soft blue for summer.  And who doesn’t love Keds, right?

Where to Wear

Wear this on a summer date to the state fair, of course. 🙂  Wear it anywhere casual, brunch, shopping, the movies, 4th of July afternoon party, etc.

Investment pieces

The shorts would work with so many other tops and colors, the sneakers, the purse watch and sun glasses can all be investment pieces.

Thoughts

Shorts are perfect for summer but I find as I get older, I much prefer skirts and dresses.  How about y’all?

Have a great 4th of July!!

Summer Date

Are summer dates more fun than winter dates?  If so, then what makes summer dates more fun?  Could it be that we get to show more skin?  Or is it simply the ambiance of a dimly lit rooftop, sitting close enough to see his baby blues, sipping on something cool and feeling his hand lightly brush against your bear leg?  Possibly…but my thought is that they are more fun because we get to wear our new yellow sandals.  What’s not fun about these babies?

Where to Wear

Wear this look to most summer casual events.  Wear it shopping, brunch with friends, to the movies, etc.

Investment Pieces

The black tank, the sandals (if yellow is one of your wardrobe colors), the purse, watch and necklace.  For the perfume, choose your own…we each have our individual preferences, as we should. 🙂

Thoughts

How do y’all feel about wearing shorts?  I don’t wear them often, anymore.  However, when I was younger, I would most certainly wear an outfit like the one shown above.  The looser fitting shorts, like the ones above, were easier for me to wear.  On my frame, they were more flattering and a bit more conservative looking. 

Be careful with shorts, though, sometimes they can be too short or too tight.  It is OK to wear them this way, of course, just be wise when making these choices.  Yes…you are very wise, so I know that you will not wear shorts inappropriately! 

Happy Saturday!

Saturday Errands

Yes, you have them – all those Saturday to-do’s.  Let’s not overthink our look, today, since we have so much to do.

Throw on those comfortable, ripped boyfriend jeans, add a basic tee, some comfortable flats, grab your tote and start your day of errands.

Where to Wear?

Wear this look today, as you check off all of those to-do’s on your list.  Wear it to any casual event, wear it around the house, shopping, the movies, etc.

Investment Pieces

Let’s categorize all of these items as investments, why don’t we?

Thoughts

Today, I will be continuing my tidying process by going through all of my shirts, sweaters, etc., to see which I want to keep and which I no longer love.  Good times…

Happy Saturday everyone.

Casual Friday Look 5

Our last look for casual Friday.  This time we are working with burgundy and cream tones.  Just as in our previous look with flats, we’ve added a blazer to make the look more professional and put-together.

What do you think of this look?  Do you like those flats?

As you can see from this week’s posts, with one pair of great fitting, conservatively styled jeans, you can create many weeks of casual Fridays.  We just went through five weeks of casual Fridays – wow how time flies.

Happy Friday y’all.  Have a wonderful day.  As always, be safe as you head to happy hour tonight.

Casual Friday Look 4

Are you beginning to see that all you need for casual Friday’s is one pair of  conservative styled, great fitting pair of jeans?  With that one pair, you can create multiple looks, both in style and color to create variety and interest.

This look takes basic black – in the jeans and striped shirt, and ads camel toned accessories to give it a more interesting, put together look.  What do you think?

If your look and style is not as conservative as this, no worries.  What I am attempting to show you is the “idea” of how to put together an office-friendly Friday casual look.  If you are still having problems, let me know and I can see what we can do for you.

The last casual Friday look will be tomorrow.  By now, you are either glad that these posts are almost over, or you can’t wait to see the exciting, interesting look I have to show you.  Either way, see you tomorrow and Happy Thursday!

Casual Jeans Outfit 3

A whole new color palette, today, with our jeans.  This time we are embracing spring and all of its vibrant colors.

For this outfit, we simply chose a blouse, added some fun low heel pumps and coordinated our jewelry.  An easy look to put together.

What do y’all think of this look?  Don’t you think that it has a whole different “vibe” than the previous two jeans outfits?  Can you begin to see that you need only one pair of jeans to take you through many casual Fridays?
