Lookbook: Love of Thigh-High Boots

This is one of the outfits I wore last week. Due to other must-do posts it got bumped until now. Lately I’ve been a fan of thigh-high boots, I think that it’s quite sexy when worn with the right jacket or a slouchy cardigan. My legs were kept warm even though I had shorts on, not to mention I got multiple compliments when I went out to brunch (obviously took off the hat) with my boots and got a couple of up-downs.

The hat, I admit, was just for the photos. Kind of redundant. But again, a lot of things in life is redundant, like eating breakfest after you brush your teeth, dating someone you know won't last from the start, or making your bed every morning right before you leave for work knowing you will mess it up again at the end of the day. It just happens.








Cardigan: Forever 21
Shorts: Abercrombie & Fitch
Belt: Mexx
Suade Boots: Forever 21

  6. Can't believe you're still wearing shorts! It's freezing out here :) So jealous that you can pull off the look of thigh highs. I'm still waiting to see if I can find a pair of riding boots that fit around my calves :o/

  17. You look so lovely in these pictures- I love the first one especially!
    I once went to buy a pair of thigh-highs, and the douche at the shop was like,
    "Maybe your just not the right body type for these?"
    I was like, thanks, basically calling me fat. Douche.
    ahahaha xx

  40. I love this! I've been looking for nice thigh highs/OTK boots for the longest time but can't seem to find any. And it doesn't help that my calves are big -it's hard to find any boots that fit right.

  42. Hey :-)

    Cute outfit! I need to find me some HIGH boots before the snow hits the ground, and I become delusional again, thinking I can walk from the porch to the car in 4 1/2 inch heels AND 51/2 snow and not have salt marks on my stockings haha. Ha, yeah, life is redundant as you said...but we live it :-) ha.

  52. soo, this is gross and only minimally related to this post:

    my mom always said that you wouldn't scrape your teeth in the morning and place the scrapings on a muffin. so you shouldn't eat bfast w/o brushing your teeth first.

    then again, my mom was a oral surgeon's assistant and kinda obsessed.
