Upon reading the title, you probably thought to yourself, “False, I have never once thought that.” But I am here to change your mind. I was also just like you once, and never thought twice about some red thigh-high boots.. Until the day when I saw Halsey, the most perfect woman ever, wearing the most beautiful pair at her concert in November. Now let me tell ya, I immediately decided I had to have a pair. Let me also tell ya that “red thigh-highs” does not yield a whole lot of options on the world wide interweb.
So after a whole lot of searching, I finally came across a contender, which was a suede pair online at Nordstrom. I was skeptical at first, but I happened to find them in person at a Nordstrom in California.. It was easy to say they were love at first sight and had to be mine. But being that I am not the queen of practical clothing purchases, I got those suckers home and had to do some real brainstorming. Considering I don’t plan on going on any world tours anytime soon, these boots had to be worn elsewhere.
Now I know, these boots are a lot. I don’t deny that. And they probably wouldn’t be your first thought for Christmas attire.. but I am here advocating for those who are trying to be the fiercest one in their Grandma’s dining room on December 25th. Children close your eyes for this part, these boots are made for bad bitches, so you gotta own ’em. These boots are sights to be seen, so you can also wear them for your next night out on the town, and do some major stompin’.
Your eyes just aren’t quite ready yet to see them, and I need to discuss the rest of the outfit so you all don’t start to think I am obsessed with a shoe.. (although I am) But here we are at the top. I am going to start by saying I love stripes. I love them a lot. And I love black & white pattern to balance out a bright shoe or accessory. This Free People top is super soft and so so cute. I about die every time I see the adorable ruffled trumpet sleeves. It also has a ruffled “lettuce” hem, but I tucked it in for a different type of look. Also beware of these sleeves, I accidentally dipped them in at least 4 different food groups on Thanksgiving. (this color is sold out, but I linked the other option)
Just a little sneak peek since I still don’t think you are ready for them. And now we can talk about the skirt. So this little fella is also Free People, and at one time was a steal at Macys. Look out for sales people! This skirt is a black mini with a cute front-side zipper detail and yes, the zipper does work. It is just the right length, and super stretchy to account for however many cinnamon rolls and mashed potatoes you eat on Christmas. It comes in so many other colors and patterns and can easily be dressed up or down.
Brittany would be very proud because I am about to use a Taylor Swift song reference.. “Are you Ready for it?”
Sorry that reference was so dorky, I am embarrassing, someone take this blog away from me. Just kidding. So here we are, we have finally made it to the cutest boots you will ever lay eyes on. They’re red. They’re (fake) suede. They’re thigh-high. They’re even on sale. Need I say more? I definitely could, but I probably shouldn’t because I am a ramblin’ woman. I will just leave you with a few more pictures of these precious babies. (also, they are a little wide at the thigh, but stay up just fine with a long pair of socks underneath)

Well this is where I leave you. Have a wonderful weekend, and wait as patiently as you can until next time. Merry (early) Christmas 🙂
