The Perfect Boots for the Holidays

I am so excited I can finally show off a cold weather appropriate outfit! This past week I was in Wisconsin to visit my family for Thanksgiving, and it was cold enough to wear boots and a scarf. Wahoo!

This outfit was actually my Thanksgiving outfit. It gets pretty warm in our families’ homes with everything cooking, so I went with a light airy top and took my scarf off once it got really warm. But the stars of this outfit are my shiny, new boots from DSW! I can’t tell you how happy I am to finally have a pair of over-the-knee boots. I’ve been drooling over them for ages, but I didn’t take the leap until I was home this last week!

These boots are by Kelly & Katie from DSW. This has been one of my favorite brands from DSW, because, despite the higher heels, they are well-constructed and very easy/comfortable to walk in. Comfort is key during the holidays! I also like that they are a bit wider…as my feet are really wide and I tend to have a hard time finding boots that fit me just right. Kelly & Katie boots for the win, again!

This was a comfy look for Thanksgiving, however, I’m going to be restyling these boots for some dressier looks for the holidays as well. So, stay tuned!

How was everyone else’s Thanksgiving? Or how was your weekend if you’re outside the US? And did anyone score any good Black Friday sales? Most of my favorite stores seemed to not have the greatest sales this year – so, I’m curious how everyone else did! Let me know in the comments!

  1. Ah! Those boots! I’m on the fence about knee highs — I love the style but I am really short and I feel like they make me look even smaller… 🙁

    Btw, what is that little “shop the look” marquee called? I want to make one for my blog posts but I don’t know how!

    1. Hmmm my friend Jodie is on the shorter side of the spectrum and she is always wearing OTK boots if you want to check out her pics. 🙂 And I’ll shoot you an email about the shop the look widget…it gets a bit complicated. Haha. 🙂

      1. Thank you so much, Lindsey!! I will definitely check her website out…And thank you so much for the email!!
