Winter OOTD: Over-the-knee boots & high waist skirt
Honestly, I was a little doubting to implement fashion into my blog since although I get complimented quite a lot about my good taste in clothing, I wouldn’t really say my outfits are that special. Or at least not if I take a look at the average fashion blogger that wears these extraordinary clothing pieces I would never dare to wear. I will never buy a piece that looks extremely special, most of the time I just don’t like very special items with weird prints or fabric. I like to combine more ‘basic’ items and then combine them in a way that looks good. I would describe my style as very feminine and classy that is ALWAYS combined with shoes with some sort of heels (I just love the extra height it gives me!). Also, if I could chose between an outfit with a dress/skirt or with pants/shorts, I will always go for the first. Oh, and I am really that type of girl that loved watching Gossip Girl just for the lovely, preppy outfits of the show (even though I have to do it with a smaller budget than the women of the Upper East Side of NY, unfortunately…).
Today was just like the average winter day in Belgium: cold, windy, sometimes a little sunshine and sometimes a little bit of rain and no snow. I was leaving today for a family lunch in a restaurant, so I decided to go for a skirt for this occasion since it is never too cold to wear a skirt in my opinion. 😉
Lately I am very in LOVE with the trend of over-the-knee boots. They really give every outfit that little bit extra stylish touch and next to that they are good for keeping your legs warm enough. I am normally not the type of person that wears a whole outfit of black but when I do, I like to combine it with some accessoires that give the outfit a little more definition. That is why I chose for these beige over-the knee boots and a cute little burgundy shoulder bag to complete the outfit.
Finishing of with some small Swarovski jewellery to give my turtleneck black sweater a little more glam. This outfit is 100 percent me!
Oh and my dad gave the remark I was really dressed very summerish since he thought I had bare legs (ofcourse I wore a winter coat over it). But no, I was wearing just a good pair of nude stockings which I thought looked good on this outfit. Normally I wouldn’t wear nude stockings for a winter day outfit but with over the knee boots, everything just gets better. 😉
