With temperatures in the 80's last week, I really thought winter was like, holla, I'm out! And man-o-man, you should have seen the way all these little girls was out and about with booty shorts and tank tops on. SMH!!!
Whenever the weather tries to play with my emotions, I go for looks that will keep me warm in the morning and at night when the temperatures drop, yet cool enough during the day when its warm. Today's outfit works well with this tricky weather and it brings together both the fall/winter and spring trends.
Traditionally, over the knee boots are worn over a pair of jeans or maybe with a short skirt or shorter pair of shorts . Which is why I decided to go with a longer pair of distressed shorts. Of course I diy'd my shorts (because I refuse to pay full price for ripped up jeans). If for some reason diy'ing your own shorts is not your forte, these distressed Bermuda shorts from Forever 21 would work just fine. For the cool chic factor (wink) I wore this wine colored biker jacket over a lose knit chunky sweater. Let me just say that this sweater was in heavy rotation this season.
Now let's talk about my favorite piece of this look - these true blue faux suede over the knee boots from ShoeDazzle. I almost passed on these boots because I told myself that I didn't need another shoe in my closet. I really need to stop lying to myself. I will always need a cute pair of shoes, boots, clothes, sunglasses or handbag in my closet - ALWAYS! Glad I didn't listen to myself. These boots are amazing and they're sold out - wonk, wonk.
