These Boots Are Made For Talkin’

OVER THE KNEE BOOTS: Sam Edelman  //  LACE OFF-THE-SHOULDER TOP: StyleKeepers  //  SUEDE SKIRT: similar BlankNYC  //  FAUX LEATHER JACKET: similar BlankNYC  //  EARRINGS: BaubleBar  //  BELT: Raina Belts  //  SUNNIES: similar Kapten & Son  //  GOLD LAYERED NECKLACES: Virgins Saint & Angels


The over-the-knee boot has been trending for the last several fall/winter seasons, and I’ve been a fan since day one. This is a trend that looks great on every gal’s shape, and especially does wonders for shorties and girls with shorter legs like me. Whether pairing over-the-knee boots (which are so popular, most of you know that OTK stands for just that!) over skinny jeans and leggings or pairing them with a mini skirt like I did in today’s post, OTK boots elongate our legs and add a little sass to any outfit you pair them with. Since most of you probably own a pair or two of OTK boots in staple neutral tones, today I’m teaming up with Nordstrom to talk about the next boot style on your must-have list:  a pair of statement-making OTK boots, like this amazing pair of embroidered over-the-knee boots I styled above.

10 Reasons You Should Plan an Alaskan Cruise

what to do alaskan cruise

As promised, I’m back with another post from our incredible Alaskan Cruise we did back in mid-September with Princess Cruises. I’ve planned to do a full blog post on each of the three Alaskan ports we visited during our 7-day Alaskan cruise, but before I do that, I wanted to put together a little post on why an Alaskan cruise should absolutely top your bucket list (if it doesn’t already). I mentioned this in my last post about the cruise, but while I was so incredibly excited to explore Alaska, it wasn’t something that was previously on my list of places I absolutely must go. I mostly blamed that reservation on my husband’s obsession with the various Alaskan reality shows on Discovery Channel (I’m talking multiple-day, 12 hour marathons of Alaskan Bush People, y’all), which made Alaska seem a little more outdoorsy than this city girl was up for. I think it’s very clear that I was absolutely wrong because Alaska is the most beautiful place I’ve ever been (with plenty for everyone to see and do!), but I was shocked to hear from so many of you all via comments and emails that you shared that reservation until reading my posts and seeing my photos (which makes me SO happy!!)  For those of you who are still on the fence, here is a list of top 10 reasons you should absolutely book an Alaskan cruise ASAP!

Click on the read more button below to read all 10 of my reasons, find out what there is t and see more photos of what’s waiting for you to see in do in gorgeous Alaska.
