We Wore: Thigh High Boots
If you follow outfit trends on Instagram and Pinterest like we do, you'd have noticed over the fall and winter there was one trend that was showing up everywhere! While it admittedly took a while for us to decide we needed to give it a go, Lauren and I finally purchased pairs of thigh high boots. They unmistakably make everyone who wears them look tall and lean, so, I was stoked to try them.
When they arrived I had the classic moment of "what have I done". These boots are significantly more sexy and bold than my usual style - I doubted whether I could make these work with my wardrobe. In a panic, I called Lauren and told her how I got sucked in by ASOS sales and made a mistake purchase. I was pleased to hear that she was also sat on her bedroom floor staring at a pair of tall boots she was now questioning. (BFFs intuition is real). And so began our journey.
We decided we had to try the trend out and see what these boots were all about - I mean, they always look great on everyone who's doing it! We planned a shoot day and after about an hour long phone call to pick outfits, we slipped on our boots and headed out.
Admittedly, the whole drive to our shoot location we felt very unsure and weary about our choices, then we started shooting.
These boots add so much length to your legs, they're actually impossible not to love. With all of our styling boundaries broken and huge smiles from laughing, these boots put us in the best mood.
The fun thing about these boots as well, is that you can easily change your outfit feel with simple changes. Lauren's change from a classy bell sleeve black coat to a faux-suede open jacket made these boots much easier to wear to work! For my outfit change, I went from a more classic trench coat look to a far edgier feel with an oversized camo jacket.

We finished our shoot and agreed, we had to wear these boots all day! We ran all of our errands, went out for dinner and even went for drinks downtown after that. Neither of us could stop dancing, we were confident and filled with endless energy. Honestly, it had the be the boots.
Although they won't be an everyday wear for either of us, we now know that if we need a confidence boost, these boots are going on!
So now they sit on my shoe shelf full of hilarious memories from a 16 hour day wearing thigh high boots and a short dress, ready for the next sass-filled adventure.
