The Coziest Sweater + The Best Over-The-Knee Boots
Right now, it’s in the teens outside and I’m cozied up on our couch in my usual robe with Oakley snuggled up next to me. But like always, I have an outfit for you that’s affordable — something I’m always working towards for my readers! The boots and sweater are on sale right now! I think shopping for affordable clothing is extremely important as a blogger. I see so many bloggers who link purses that are a few thousand dollars and outfits that are a grand combined.
To me, I can’t do that.
1. I can’t afford it. But even if I could, I would like to spend it on a vacation, not an outfit.
2. My viewers aren’t looking to buy clothing/accessories for that price.
For them, I bet it works! But for me, it’s just not something that I’m wanting for my blog. The Wifey Diaries is all about being affordable, realistic, and truthful!
I’ve gone shopping for some new clothes to post during these last few weeks! When I saw this sweater at Nordstrom, I couldn’t help but notice how cute these bell-sleeves were! This sweater is cropped, which I think is super cute! I think the length is the perfect combo with the sleeves! I also don’t have any other clothes in this teal color, but it’s so beautiful! Plus, it’s on sale at Nordstrom for 40% off! Cha-ching! This sweater is so cozy — perfect for any of these unpredictable midwestern winter days.
These. Leggings. I don’t even know where to start. I had a pair of shiny faux leather leggings in college and it’s actually laugh-worthy that I thought they looked good on me. Well, that pair is long gone and replaced with these INCREDIBLY comfy leggings. They’re soft, warm, and soo stinkin’ cute!! I actually have them in black and a dark purple — oops. They’re high waisted, which is perfect for the ladies who like their tummy covered, but it’s also a really nice feature for this cropped sweater! I’m wearing a size small because the lady at Nordstrom said the XS is for “toddlers” haha. I didn’t ever get to try on the XS, but I’m sure she’s right!
I’ve also been on the hunt for the perfect over-the-knee boots for such a long time! I have a really hard time finding the perfect boots because my calves are so skinny (they all look super baggy on me). I’ve had my eyes on a certain pair at Nordstrom that FINALLY had the perfect calf fit for me, but the hefty pricetag of $800 made me want to cry and I quickly backed away from them — you’re welcome, Jacob. I headed out of Nordstrom and hit Nordstrom Rack. When I saw these boots, I. WAS. PUMPED. They’re the perfect fit. These over-the-knee boots fit comfortably and have the perfect heel height! I could honestly wear them all day and my feet won’t hurt. I love how there’s a tie at the top to make them as tight or loose as you need! They’re completely sold out at Nordstrom Rack because they’re so amazing, so I’m linking the same pair from Shoes.com at the bottom of this page! There’s also a 25% off coupon code right now when you use the code WINTERSALE. Nord Rack still has a few sizes left in taupe, which is also super cute! You can also snatch a few sizes at Macy’s.
What do you guys think of this combo?! Are you as obsessed with these boots as I am?!
