Did anyone else hang up their winter coat over Christmas weekend to enjoy sunny skies and a warm(ish) Chicago day? As soon as I saw the forecast, which was above 56°, I committed to taking full advantage of the warm temps. What a true Christmas miracle!
I just got these knee-high/thigh-high faux suede boots from Fashion to Figure, but I haven't worn them out yet because I wanted to keep them safe from the snow. I believe these boots just sold out on Fashion to Figure, but I usually order wide calf boots from WomanWithin and Lane Bryant. If you are able to get your hands on a pair from Fashion to Figure, make sure you double check the size chart and measure your foot. These boots have a lot of room and stretch and they are very comfortable, but just double and triple check that you have the right size! I'm wearing a size 8.
I originally planned on pairing the boots with a pair of jeans or leggings and a sweater, but I decided on a pencil dress topped off with an unbuttoned chiffon midi dress—talk about polar opposites. I have worn dresses and skirts with boots before, so I wasn't opposed to it. However, I was a little weary to wear a dress with boots that come up to my lower thigh. To my surprise, I think this look worked well, and I will totally sport it again—maybe not until late spring, though.
I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe holiday. I'm looking forward to what the new year has in store! I know I'm not the only one who can't wait for that clock to strike 12.
