Every month, we feel it coming. Whether your emotions shift, you feel bloated, or you get funky food cravings, you might be alerted that-time-of-the-month is on its way. Cue the sighs and groans, but what if we turned around and turned our periods into something to celebrate? While I don’t love the period cramps, the exhaustion, or the hormonal headaches and breakouts, I love and appreciate my body. To me, that’s something worth celebrating, and in these uncertain times, why not celebrate all that our bodies can do for us?!

10 Outfits to Wear with Combat Boots in 2021

Are you a fan of combat boots? I’ve always liked the look but often was intimidated and didn’t think I could pull it off. What I’ve learned is that it’s all about how to style combat boots with pieces you already own that make the difference. If you find combat boots to look too edgy, no worries! Add a romantic spin with a feminine dress, or make them more casual with jeans and a graphic tee. With 90s fashion hotter than ever, there’s really no better time to add a pair of combat boots to your closet and create outfits to wear with combat boots all year long!

Before making the splurge and purchasing a pair of combat boots, I always recommend creating at least 3 different outfits with pieces in your closet that you could envision yourself wearing.

Today, I thought I’d take you through my “creative process” of what happens in my brain when I’m considering adding something new to my closet. In this post, I’ll be sharing my personal combat boot and lace-up boot picks, plus a few outfit ideas to get you thinking when it comes to how you decide to style your combat boots!

If I learned anything from last year, it’s that life is anything but predictable. Instead of setting new year’s resolutions, I set small goals for myself that are achievable. I’m working on small changes like reading before bed instead of scrolling on social media and putting more time into getting creative this year to make staying home as enjoyable as possible. One of the things I miss the most is hosting my friends for brunch and dessert parties. But there’s no reason the party can’t go on! Since we can’t gather together right now, I thought I’d put a virtual spin on a treasured classic party idea: the ice cream social!
