Matching // Burgundy Over the Knee Boots

Matching // Burgundy Over the Knee Boots

It’s almost the weekend! It has been quite dreary the last few days on my side of the world, but I was excited when I remember that I hadn’t shared a fun colorful look that I wore not so long ago! The colors this fall season have been so rich and warm and perfect right before the holidays roll around! But there are a few that have been standing out, such as burgundy and blue. Or is it wine and ink, or bordeaux and navy? Whatever you may call it, it’s here to stay for a little while longer. And I love it! It’s been quite obvious those are colors I cannot seem to get enough of this season, and my previous posts here,  here  and here are evidence of that.
Burgundy Over the Knee Boots for Petite

Now for a petite woman like me, it can be hard to tell if over the knee boots over jeans work well unless you actually try them on in the store. That’s why when I am purchasing over the knee boots in the store, I end up wearing the types of jeans I would most likely wear with the boots. Fitted skinny jeans for me are best since it helps to avoid any major bulk at the ankle and have any fit along the shaft of the boot. See more about fitting over the knee boots here.

A bright pink bag brings out the undertones of the burgundy in the outfit and the pattern play in the plaid button down. I liked going more prep that farm girl with the top by adding the blazer to match the boots.

One thing I grew up seeing often was the women in my family always matching everything in their outfits, bags, shoes, clothing, lipstick…all of it (And don’t get me wrong, they can dress well!). I’ll even admit that I have overdosed on the matchy-matchy look quite a few times myself (this outfit, case in point!). But I’ve been breaking out and trying new things in my style to elevate the fun factor, so I am working on playing with various color families as I develop more looks over the seasons. Although, don’t doubt that a great full monochrome look like this one here is a bad thing!  You should have fun with color, and working with shades within one color is a great place to start!

Fall Family Outing: Hunter Boots & IFB Links a la Mode!

Fall Family Outing: Hunter Boots & IFB Links a la Mode!

Happy Friday! This has been an emotional week for me, and I’m feeling a little behind on things. However, I always do my best to try to find a silver lining in the midst of the craziness. Spending time with my family and enjoying the fall weather has been the best way to feel grounded and connected to the joys I do have in my life. This platform is also a blessing, and whenever it gets recognized for its work I am always honored. It was a thrill to see that my recent post was selected this week for the Independent Fashion Bloggers Links a la Mode for the fifth time (see here, herehere and here for more!). It only makes me all the more excited to continue to work on the site and make it better for you and for me! (The new update has been promised…and it will arrive…but life as you know takes more turns than you’d like, but it will get here!)

Fall outing pumpkin picking

Pumpkin patch with kids

One of our annual traditions is to enjoy a fall family outing by going pumpkin picking. We create a Fall seasonal card to send out to family. I think it’s a nice surprise for our friends and family to see us together each year before we are in the full swing of the holidays. (I have to admit, I never get those Christmas holiday cards out in time anyway, so I start early!)


Outdoors fall outfit

And with some recent rain, I knew I was in for a muddy mess out in the pumpkin patch. Happily I was able to pull out my green Hunter boots and enjoy a day out in the sun!

Fall outfit for a family outing

The colors of the pumpkins, the changing leaves and the market are always a beautiful sight. Fall is such a inspirational time for wearing warm tones of color, and loving green as much as I do, it was nice to add some pop of red and leopard print into my outfit for the day.
