This time of year, everyone is styling gorgeous holiday looks that usually involve lots of glitz, glam and sparkle. I have my fair share of fancy outfits, but my lifestyle revolves less around parties and dressing up and more about comfortable outings with my family. That’s not to say I don’t want to look good. If you know me at all, you know better than that. It’s just that dressing up sometimes needs to come with pants. And comfortable shoes. So when I was offered the chance to style a holiday look around a pair of gorgeous, wide-calf boots from Rack Room Shoes, it was the perfect fit for the way I really live — and dress — on a daily basis.

Not to mention the fact that these boots are…well…see for yourself.

Gorgeous, no? Anyone with large calves knows the pain of finding the perfect pair of boots — only to find that you can’t zip them or pull them up. Because calves.

These wide-calf Madden Girl boots fit perfectly, and I am loving the fly details. The studs in the back around the red zipper make them noticeable even from a distance, and they are really comfortable to wear. An ensemble like this is my holiday shopping/family time uniform. It’s the kind of outfit I’d wear to my mom’s house on Christmas day and still feel completely put together. I’m loving plaid shirts, though I need to get a red one, and these high waist skinnies are the business! The statement necklace (just $10!) helps a bit too 🙂 Plus, if you love the boots, get $15 off a $75 purchase with this Rack Room Shoes coupon.

I was feeling like a million bucks in my new boots, and the whole family went to the park, so I took the opportunity to grab a few quick photos with my girls.

You can probably tell from her ever so precisely layered outfit that Ja’Naya has inherited my love of fashion. Also…she is only a half-size behind me in shoes(!!!), so she’s already raiding my closet. I imagine my new boots are going to make their way onto her feet sooner or later. Juliza has some catching up to do, but she’s holding her own in the fashion department.

Before I go, I want to share a hilarious observation. My husband shared a meme with me that wonders why fashion bloggers are always looking at the ground. What, exactly, are we looking at down there? Well, I can tell you.

I’m looking about my boots, because they’re fabulous, and my footing on the rock…

And here, I’m watching my step, because loose, uneven red clay + clumsy me are not a good combination.

There. Mystery solved. Enjoy the holidays, ya’ll!
