Over the Knee | Dolled Up Daily Blog

I don't know about there, but here winter has clearly arrived. I am getting a little sick of all this snow already. But, I don't plan on letting the snow stop me from dressing how I want!

One thing I've seen a lot this season but never personally owned is over the knee boots. I've seen people rock them, but I've also seen some others not look quite their best in their pairs. The nightmare I have when thinking of over the knee boots, is looking like Julia Roberts in pretty woman. They may have worked for her, but that's not exactly the image I am going for.

But, there are a lot of celebrities I've seen wear this trend and look stunning. Blake Lively is a prime example, makes me fall in love with the style. 

A few things I've noticed that help find the perfect OTK boots without giving off the pretty woman vibe is:

  • Stay away from pleather, especially shiny types. 
  • Avoid super high heels
  • To be on the safe side get flats
  • Other colors besides black, like browns and other dark colors are a safe bet
  • Great to pair with tights and leggings
  • If going with black, suede is a great alternative to leather
  • Wear with conservative clothing, let the boots be the statement piece
I've been pining after a pair, think I'll need some for this season. What's your thought on these statement pieces?

Catching Up | Dolled Up Daily Blog

Hello my lovely readers, I've been MIA lately and I apologize for my lack of blog updates. On the bright side though, so much has been happening this summer and I can't wait to catch you all up. Heres a sweet and short post, with a few pictures to catch you up on a few things from the last month or so.


I got my first ever gel nails, loved the way they looked and not having to worry about them chipping or changing them for weeks. However they did a ton of damage to my nails, still months away from the damage growing out. Worth it price wise? Yes. But damage wise? No. Maybe someday I'll opt for these again, but definitely not a monthly thing. 

Had a lovely trip to Chicago. How pretty is this? A gorgeous balcony with a wonderful view of the city. 

Still loving these Prada sunnies I mentioned in one of my last posts. :) 

Gotten obsessed with Earl Grey tea. Love love love. Chai tea lattes are my other morning weakness. 

Found my new favorite nail color, Highlight of my Summer by China Glaze. So gorgeous!

And relaxed poolside in Florida.

What a fun and relaxing summer its been. I am a lucky girl. Working though, only a month left before I head back to university. Have to make the best of it! 

Heading to Lollapalooza this weekend in Chicago!! So excited. Then off for a short trip to LA with a few of my girls. Then the Taylor Swift concert right after. Pinch me this can't be real. :)

Little Blue Dress | Dolled Up Daily Blog

There's not much I love more than the summer time. The warm weather, beach days, and just overall happiness the sunshine tends to bring to my face. One thing that goes hand in hand with the warm days and sunny weather is a perfect dress.

Easy to throw on, comfortable, and pretty at the same time. These pictures are from awhile back, but thought they'd be a perfect example of a simple day dress.

The dress is from last summers candies line, belt came with, and the flip flops are American Eagle.

And now one just for laughs, have to love the awkward moment someone walks through a photo session lol.

What's your favorite summertime apparel?

Until next time dolls

Ombre All Around | Dolled Up Daily Blog

One trend I've been loving a little extra this season is Ombre. I've been loving this for years, and thought maybe it wouldn't last, but it's only becoming more and more popular.

From hair, to nails, and even food, this is a very lovely trend that I just adore. Are you planning on picking up any ombre pieces this season?

I've been loving ombre nails for this spring, and I'm sure I'll love it this summer too. Thinking about doing a tutorial, thoughts?

xoxo, Haylee

New Sunnies! Prada 'Baroque' PR 27NS | Dolled Up Daily Blog

One of my favorite accessories for the sunny weather are sunglasses. I was fortunate enough to get a pair of sunglasses I've adored for months but never thought I'd be lucky enough to get my hands on!

I got the Prada PR 27NS, in black. These gems have gorgeously curved and constructed beautifully and flawlessly.


So excited about getting these that I just had to blog.

They're very big, but I love oversized sunglasses, at first I was a little worried they were overwhelmingly big, but within minutes I just loved the size and shape. They're rounded and look great on. This isn't the last post these will be in I'm sure. What do you guys look for when picking out new sunnies?

Here's a few pictures of ladies who sure know how to rock these glasses. I love wearing my hair up in the summer, can't wait to wear these glasses with that simple look!

Well until next time dolls,

xoxo Haylee
