Hi everyone! I am back from Hawaii and have a big announcement to share, which explains why I’ve been so absent on here the last couple of months! I’m also sharing this dress and over the knee boots outfit – a classy yet sexy combination that I’ve been loving this fall!
It can be difficult to pull off a dress and over the knee boots because it can look TOO sexy sometimes. My tip for avoiding this is to find the right dress – look for a cute and stylish dress that is somewhat conservative, not too short, and slightly loose. I don’t know what it is but a peek of the thighs can be so provocative. When wearing a dress and over the knee boots, I tend to lean towards looser dresses or A-line shaped ones like this fit and flare dress I’m wearing. Unless you’re a Kim Kardashian or going to a club, definitely don’t wear a bodycon dress with over the knee boots because you might get the hooker vibes, you feel me? hehe
It’s also important to find really well fitting over the knee boots that are slimming and flattering on your legs. This will pull the look together and make you look chic. I swear by these over the knee boots that I’ve been wearing since last year and you can read my full review. I recently purchased over the knee boots that ended up being ill-fitting and it just made my outfits look sloppy.
So on to the big news! We purchased a new home! It’s been so hectic with juggling work, closing on the home, and fitting in Hawaii between it all. The blog has been falling lower and lower on the priority list unfortunately hehe. If you guys are familiar with the Seattle housing market, it is literally INSANE right now. Over the last couple of years, Seattle has consistently been number one in the nation with THE biggest housing price increases. Bidding wars are completely normal here (one coworker has lost out on at least 7 bidding wars already) and houses can go over $150,000 of the asking price. Crazy, right? We were really lucky to have found this brand new house and I’m so excited to be sharing this next big step with you guys as we decorate the new home and make lots of happy memories here. You can read more about this announcement on my Instagram and even check out my Insta Stories for a full tour! It expires on 11/20 around 6 pm PST. Don’t worry if you miss it, the house isn’t fully complete yet (although very close) so I’m thinking about doing a house tour in my very first YouTube video! Let me know if you guys would be interested!
