Doing it all in Style with Famous Footwear


Back from Hawaii, the over-the-knee boots are returning to be my holiday’s staple boot. While I’m still processing and healing from Bodhi’s loss—I’m also tackling my gift list to cooking/hosting a family dinner this season, and what’s a better way to start off the holiday season by feeling confident? Together with Famous Footwear—we can dot it all in style.

Thank you to Famous Footwear for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.


Losing Bodhi during the holidays has been extremely hard on me and my family. However, as a mother of two and with Christmas approaching—life has to go on (even though there are days where I just want to stay in bed and cry). My husband and I always host during the holidays, however, we had to cancel Thanksgiving this year to due Bodhi’s passing. But we are on for Christmas which means I’m in full on planning gear. And as I’m running around town–comfy shoes are needed. My new stylish pair of over-the-knee boots allow me to chase after my toddler and/or take my baby on a nice stroll without having any discomfort. In fact, they make me feel joyful and free! Famous Footwear, is my place for athletic and casual shoes for my whole family. With over 1,000 stores nationwide and even more selection online at, Famous Footwear is a leading family footwear destination for the famous brands you know and love.

    Been thinking of you, Vanessa. Although you are feeling so much hurt and sadness, you pushed through and photographed this killer look! You are so strong… time heals, although Bodhi I know will always be in your heart.

    I hope you feel a bit better although I know by experience that the lost of a pet can take very long.

    I’ve still been praying for you and your family everyday Vanessa. It will get easier I promise. It’s so difficult to lose a pet. Anyways, onto your outfit! LOVE those OTK boots! I have such a hard time finding a pair since I am so petite. Love how you paired them too!
