Hello Tuesday! Yesterday was such a nice day to be outside and get things done. We got a few things done, but the old “my way” and “his way” took over so we had to stop, regroup and decided I would finish this project today. YAY!..NOT YAY! I think as a Mom, I know what I want, how I want it done and every person in my family are the exact same way. This can be troubling at times…LOL!
We tried a date night this past weekend, but the kids inserted themselves, so we made it a family night out. We decided we would take a night to ourselves and go to one of our favorites places, The Outback last night. Yum!
This is the perfect Fall Date Night outfit! I really enjoyed wearing this one. The focus on this outfit would be the over the knee boots, but let’s talk about the jacket for a moment.
I purchased this last year on Black Friday from Kohl’s and have worn it so many ways since then. To my surprise, it is still on the website (it is a big seller) and it’s under $40. It does fit TTS, if you want it a little bigger for thicker sweaters, I would size up. This comes in multiple colors also, see it here. I am
This Tie-Hem Wrap Blouse (I am wearing a Medium) is also on sale right now from The Loft Outlet and is super cute with jeans and booties if that’s your style. What I liked about this blouse is the front wrap that is secure, but the hem can be tightened or loosen up. It’s a cute detail that is eye-catching. (see the pic below for the tie on the side) This could work with white jeans or slacks, or even a skirt. It’s definitely a blouse that is dressier and can be a workwear piece. See the blouse here. Sweaters are BOGO Free right now also! Shop Sweaters here.
My jeans are from American Eagle, these wear so well and I have more than one pair. I love their jeans, they fit very well, last forever, and have stretch in them so they are never uncomfortable. These are High-Waisted Skinny Jeans and they are online only, but they are on sale for under $38. See them here, they come in Petite, Curvy, Regular, and Tall. I am wearing an 8.
My boots are from Nordstrom last year and are by Franco Sarto, but are no longer available. I did finally a similar one here that is cheaper in price but looks almost identical. I also found many similar ones above in the carousel that range in heel height and shaft height. I really like the over the knee boots, but not too over the knee, I am 50 – so I have to be a little reserved. HA! These are right at the knee cap, very comfortable to wear, and look great with jeans or skirts.
Who over 40 are styling the Over The Knee Boots? Do you feel like you can’t? Maybe a shorter shaft right below the knee would be a better alternative for you. It took me a very long time to warm up to this trend, but once I purchased the boot – I was sold like a piece of candy in a candy store from a kid with a quarter! That’s SOLD! (smile)
I am getting my cleaning done today, a little laundry, and overall straightening the house up. I will be taking my Mom to the doctor tomorrow, so say a prayer for her, if you will. What are you girls up to? Love to hear what you girls are doing! Thanks for stopping by the blog and I hope you have a wonderful day!
