My husband surprised me with these stylish ankle boots for Christmas! Shoes are always the way to a girl’s heart, right? Or at least this girl. After I unwrapped them, though, I wasn’t sure how to make them work in my closet. I decided to dress up leggings with ankle boots, and I loved the result. The comfort of leggings combined with the style vibes of ankle boots is a winning combination in my book.
As a shortie, I really like how these ankle boots have a notch in the front. It helps elongate my legs just a bit more than an abrupt cut, and every little bit helps when you’re as short as I am.

I also love how these ankle boots have cut-outs on the sides, which helps me justify wearing them during more seasons!
I’ve posted about my love for these Lalabu leggings before [click here if you missed it]. They’re touted as “postpartum leggings,” but I’m still loving mine even though Blair is 6 months old now. They really squeeze you in the right places!
So if you follow me on Instagram, you know I talk about my hair like, a lot. For years, I’ve been looking for a stylist who can do an ash blonde on me. It’s not a popular hair color here in Kansas, and I actually don’t know anyone with an ash blonde in real life. I’m so excited because I found a stylist who actually does what I’m looking for! I’ve gone to her a couple of times now and I’m really impressed. My natural color is a pretty warm brown, so transitioning to a cool tone is a challenge. If you’re in the Kansas City area and looking for a good colorist, feel free to reach out and I’ll share her contact info!
I like to pair leggings with a loose-fitting top most of the time, to avoid the “skin-tight-all-over” look. This top is a tad shorter than I normally go with leggings, but I really love the color so I just went with it. YOLO. Does anyone even say that anymore…?
Another detail I love on these ankle boots is the zipper up the back. Zippers are such a fun detail, especially on shoes!
Would you dress up leggings with ankle boots? What are your favorite ways to wear ankle boots?
