As you may already know, my dear state of Colorado is under water. I happen to be lucky enough to be far away from the worst of it, but there are still flash floods n sink holes a plenty and when it rains all week you learn something about floods: Unless your swimming, life goes on. But how can you be expected to venture out in the downpour and still look fabulous? No, rain boots are not the answer. My 2 year old niece looks incredible in here polka dot-plastic-handle boots, but grown,fabulously-fierce women should aim a little higher..thigh-high!!! Deep down inside everyone loves a thigh-high boot, so why not where them!? Slip on a pair and you will see.. they are amazing,! Thigh-highs take any outfit from plain jane to fashionista. Your legs look great, they demand attention, and are a great statement piece.
While there’s no shortage of thigh-high boots to choose from, this week I put JustFab’s boot “Freda” to the high altitude test. With a $39.95 price tag, you get a lot of boot for your buck. I wore this gorgeous (surprisingly comfortable) boot in the worst of the worst here, getting absolutely drenched, sloshing through six inches of water and sprinting across parking lots and every time came home with dry feet and boots that still looked perfect. I managed to cover my boots in some funky-colored muck from the flood waters and they cleaned up with a quick rub of towel. (If you can not live another moment with your own Freda’s click here http://www.justfab.com/invite/2571193/ or Just go to JustFab.com… the first link is me shamelessly hoping for free shoe credit to test out more items from their budget friendly shop)
Had to wait for the sun to take photos…while the boots survived the rains, the camera would not!
I paired my thigh-highs with leggings simply because soaking wet jeans are torture to wear all day. I found mine on VictoriasSecret.com in their 2 for $40 section . This is GREAT because I paired the leggings with fabulous tunic tops (yes tops, because when its this wet you have to change twenty times a day instead of the usual ten) and everything I’ve gotten there has always held up to everything I put it through, with the added perk of being so comfortable I felt like I was wearing my pajamas all day. . and honestly I’ve slept in their leggings and tunics before so I kinda was.
If your not underwater and need a little more inspiration to enter the world of thigh-highs heres a little outfit inspiration:
Shhhhh..do you hear that? It’s the sound of your skinny jeans begging for some new boots
the perfect way to bring your shorts into the cooler weather.
If you don’t have a pair of thigh-high boots go try them and you will never look back!
SO now that the rains are subsiding there is a new problem . . mud. Normally, you think you could just avoid it but here we hunt it down. The second the water stops falling the men in this town loud up their SUV’s and get down and dirty. So you can be down and dirty or home alone. SO this weeks high altitude adventure? Dirty Dates. Everyone’s hotter with a little mudd.
