For the longest time, I never imagined I would actually wear an outfit like this, until I decided to invest in this pair of Steve Madden Over the Knee boots. Obviously, we don’t usually wear a lot of boots here in the Dubai desert. But thanks to the ever evolving fall/winter fashion, boots are even more fun to wear with skirts, shorts and dresses. It was tempting to get a pair in taupe, camel or burgundy, but I was sure I’d get the most wear out of a simple black pair. I mostly stick with light, neutral colors, but black will always be timeless and elegant. I really like my shoes to be comfortable, especially if they are heels, and I can walk in my Steve Madden over the knee boots for hours, so I highly recommend them.
This is my favorite time of the year, especially in Dubai, because the weather is just perfect. It’s still very sunny during the day, and perfect for the beach, but we get a beautiful breeze in the evenings. I honestly can’t believe November is already upon us, and the new year is just a few weeks away. This year feels like it just flew by, and I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for 2017. As for what’s left of this year, I will be spending plenty of time with family and friends soaking up the holiday season, and listening to christmas music in my free time. Let me know what you think of this outfit, and I’d love to see how you styled your own pair of over the knee boots.

Happy New Year beauties, I hope 2016 is off to a great start! I’m traveling to Michigan next week and I’m so looking forward to seeing my family and friends, as well styling cozy outfits and soaking in all the snowfall. Although I prefer warmer climates I genuinely miss wearing some heavy knits, wool coats and cozy boots so I’m planning on getting it out of my system this trip. I was on a streak of super girly outfits and lots of pastels and neutrals, so I decided to start this year off with an edgier look and a playful fringed skirt. It can be a little tricky styling over the knee boots, and I wanted each piece in the outfit to stand out without overpowering the other.
It took me a while to choose a pair of over the knee boots, but I knew I wanted black suede ones and this slouchy pair fit the bill perfectly. I’m always about beauty and comfort when it comes to choosing pieces. You can feel it in the way you walk and move, so it’s important to love the way something fits and not just how it looks. I wasn’t sure how I felt about fringe when it first came back in style but this fringed skirt really took this look from simple and monochromatic to just a bit edgy. What’s your style challenge this year and have you started trying new things? I hope you liked this look, I would love to hear what you think babes!
