For my last post with Designer Shoe Warehouse, I’m sharing these taupe over-the-knee boots and a teeny peek of my dismally furnished bedroom “office” nook. Joe and I were subletting before moving here so we were starting completely from scratch with not much more than a bed. In a way it’s overwhelming because it feels like we have a never-ending “to buy” list, but I also like the clean, minimalist start. We’re both super messy (you should see the amount of clothing heaped on my floor after simple tasks like choosing a pair of leggings haha) so owning less is a good thing!
I’m wearing the Epic Over The Knee Boot by Marc Fisher which are perfect for pairing with a casual t-shirt dress like I have on or a sweater dress for chillier days. They’re a looser fit so you can also wear them over jeans.
This might sound odd, but sometimes it really does help me to be more productive if I take the time to put together a decent outfit before sitting down at my desk to work. Does this happen to anyone else?? I love working from home but when the place you work is also the place you sleep, eat, lounge, do laundry, etc., etc., it can be tempting to slack off–an issue that is exacerbated by the fact I’m typically wearing mismatched socks, old sweatpants with holes in them and one of Joe’s t-shirts (#fashion). If I find myself falling into a slump of unproductively, I’ll put together a comfortable but cute and thoughtful outfit and–as silly as it sounds–I’m more focused on work. I think the outfit change acts as a mental divide between home life and work life. Coffee helps, too. 😉
If you’re in the market for a pair of over-the-knee or tall boots, check out the huge selection DSW has HERE. They have plenty of styles under $80 and a variety of widths and sizes so that there truly is a boot for everyone. The boots I’m wearing also come in a version with a wider calf if you’re looking for a looser fit.
Alrighty hope hump day is treating you well! I’m about to head out of the city to Pembroke for a two-hour yoga workshop with my girl Yoga by Candace–so pumped! Maybe today will be the day I finally stick crow pose. 😉
