How To "Dress Down" Sexy Boots


I picked up these Steve Madden boots at Sears a few years ago and I don't know why I haven't featured them more on the blog... they are so comfy and extremely versatile.  When you think of over-the-knee or thigh-high boots, you might think they're too *sexy* for everyday wear.  As a mom, you might think they wouldn't fit in with your busy lifestyle running after kids (& the million other things you have to do during the day)... but the truth is I've never actually styled them overtly sexy.  The fact that they are flats & not heels or stilettos helps keep them modest... and I've worn them with short dresses, long dresses, leggings & jeans.  I've worn them to work, and I often wear them on the weekends when we're out & about.

A perfect way to "dress down" your sexy boots to make them appropriate for errand-running or a day at the office it to pair them with casual pieces.  Like this sweater dress.

Can we just talk about the dress for minute!?  I'm usually more of a fit & flare kind of gal, but when I saw this sweater dress, I had to have it!  Perfect for the season, and this type of animal "print" is totally in right now. Win Win.  And it was on sale... plus an extra 40% off... and free shipping. Win Win Win.

As usual, I kept the rest of my outfit simple with minimal accessories.  But I'm thinking I could have added a chunky bracelet to really complete the look... but there's always next time!

I'd love to know how you style your "sexier" pieces into your everyday style!  Share in the comments or link back to a post!

  1. Sorry, as much I would love to pull out my boots and show them off, I don't wear them very often, in fact I think I only needed them once this year! Too hot! Your ensemble looks great... and also warm! :)

  7. Ya know, I keep looking at over~the~knee boots and I think they're too much but you're right, they can be styled in a modest fashion. I think the heel height is also important.

    I have a pair of sexy heels that my *gasp* mom bought for me. I have yet to wear them. LOL I'm so not the sexy kinda girl.

  8. Those boots do look super comfy and perfect for the days when it is too cold outside for just one layer (i.e. leggins or jeans) and legs need another warm shield from the weather. I am loving how simple yet cute that sweater dress is. You have the best animal print clothing items out there!
