My Kind of Boots

by | Nov 1, 2017 | Outfits

Man, I love a fabulous pair of over the knee boots – oh yes, even when I’m preggers. Sure, I’m not wearing them everyday, but when I saw these blue beauties on ZARA.com, I immediately clicked ‘Add To Cart.’

Now that it finally feels like fall – at least in the mornings here in Atlanta – I’ve been excited to pull out my fall looks and accessories. Boots will always be my favorite fall accessory. I like them in all shapes and sizes – knee high boots, ankle boots, flat boots and over the knee boots like this. And I’m excited to be able to wear outerwear again – how cute is this H&M fuzzy coat? (this is a gooooood similar option) – it just adds a special layer to the outfit. (H&M’s outerwear line up is so good right now!) And with the bump, I’ve noticed the trick is if you’re going to be layering, wear a form fitting base – like my turtleneck here (similar) – and then layer. When I do this, I tend to prevent myself from looking like I’m wearing a tent.

I will say that as cute as these boots are (found an ASOS dupe), I definitely needed much assistance with putting them on and taking them off with a bump. They are certainly not for the modest – which I’ve never been known to be anyway. And while blue isn’t my first choice for a pop of color in the fall, I’ve been gravitating towards it a lot more these past few weeks.

Today, I’m 7 months pregnant and keeping it moving. Baby C is still very active on a daily basis and I am feeling good – full of energy with a  healthy appetite. It’s hard to believe that there’s only 61 days left in the year and 84 days until she gets here. It feels like 2017 has flown by, but I guess that’s what happens when you’re having fun. I feel like I have so much to do before she gets here. Trying my best to balance being present and productive – it’s a delicate task between taking your time and not wasting it.
