Over the knee boots, specially those with heel tend to look both dressy and sexy, that’s probably the number one reason they are left for night time. But hey I’m a mom and my night time is mostly spend in my pj’s, with a glass of wine and Netflix, so I find ways to wear the things I like in the daytime while still looking casual. I wouldn’t really wear these boots on a normal day that I’m mostly home but since I was taking my brother to eat pizza in Brooklyn I dressed it up a little.
So…how to make over the knee boots casual? The key here is to keep the outfit simple and relaxed.
- A pair of jeans you love – a tip for petite girls, choose a similar hue to your boots, that way the legs won’t look shorter. If you don’t care and you want a different color, DO IT! The most important thing is that YOU feel great.
- A relaxed fit t-shirt (graphic for a cool added factor) I’ve been breaking up with my snug-fitted t-shirts because one huge reason, mommy pooches are less noticeable that way and the half-tuck looks better.
- Leather jacket: honestly whatever jacket you like. I’m just obsessed wit leather jackets and to me everything looks better with a leather jacket on. Real leather jackets though expensive last a life time. This one is like 6 years old and was very affordable (love this one)
- Accessories: A belt that peeks out your half-tuck and a delicate necklace.
- Tips for boots: Mid-block-heels. They are great for both night time and day time. However, if you’re not into heeled boots, there are amazing flat over-the-knee boots (love these)

BEHIND THE SCENES
Why on earth am I jumping? I was celebrating I got there after my brain played me a trick.
After picking up my brother, I started driving to Brooklyn, which was not more than a 20-minute-drive. I have to note that I KNOW the way there – I used to pick my husband up at school over there every week- There was some traffic, so my brother started a conversation. I think he is more introverted than I am, if I speak 1% of what I think he does 0.5%. So when he talks I do what I do best LISTEN.
He was telling me his latest news and started to ask me, what does (x word) mean?, how can I use it? ( he is studying English). So I paid close attention. We were having this amazing conversation but when I turned to see where I was. I was almost on the Williamsburg bridge going to Manhattan and I had just passed the last exit. WTF? I said. How can I make these stupids mistakes all the time? Chris is going to start screaming. He hates the car seat. AGHHH… (the dialogues in my head) I kept looking for a way out even when I was already on the bridge…
We toured all downtown Manhattan and took the Brooklyn bridge back to Brooklyn. I took us more than an hour to get there. Thankfully Chris got entertained by the buildings and bridges and made the ride enjoyable. When he’s screaming I can’t concentrate. Anyways, this brain malfunction turned into a nice memory. I think all I can do when I make these stupid mistakes is laugh at them and accept that I can’t do everything right.
…and remember nobody is perfect and there’s no shame in that!
