10 Different Ways To Style Thigh High Boots In The Summer | Summer Outfit Inspiration

Thigh high boots are one of the trendiest style staples we’ve seen this year, no doubt. And though we usually consider boots to be a part of fall and winter attire, it would be an absolute shame if we let this extraordinarily fabulous trend die during the hot summer months.

That’s why I went on journey to find various different ways that we can incorporate thigh high boots into our summer wardrobes, thus keeping the trend alive.

Thigh high boots styled with a basic short sleeve tee, tucked into a pair of light wash distressed denim shorts. Complete the look with a plaid flannel shirt tied around the waist.




Thigh high boots worn with a collared button up shirt dress with a curved hem. A belt or braided tie can be added around the waist if desired.




Thigh high boots paired with a fitted sleeveless mock neck crop top or bodysuit, tucked under a high waist button up denim mini skirt.



Thigh high boots styled with fishnet or sheer translucent stockings and an over sized rock band tour tee, with or without distressed denim shorts and/or denim jacket.




Thigh high boots worn with a puffy 3/4 sleeve off the shoulder crop top and high waist skater skirt. Popular top styles for this look include off the shoulder bodysuits, or non form-fitting off the shoulder crop tops.




Thigh high boots paired with a floral bell sleeve romper, can be worn with or without a matching belt. Popular romper styles for this look include off the shoulder, cold shoulder, deep v, or choker neckline with medium-long sleeve length.




Thigh high boots worn with a solid color choker tee shirt dress or over sized choker tee. Fishnet stockings can also be added to complete the look.




Thigh high boots paired with a dolphin hem mini bodycon dress with a jewel neckline. Popular sleeve lengths for this look include 3/4 total length, long sleeve, or sleeveless.




Thigh high boots styled with a solid color bell sleeve shift or swing dress, with or without a lace up neckline. Sleeves, although long, are flowey and suitable for hot weather.




Thigh high boots worn with a plain over sized short sleeve crew neck tee (worn as a mini dress), and a ball cap. Popular tee’s for this look are solid colored and long enough to wear as a dress, without the need for shorts underneath.


As you can see, there are plenty of adorable ways to continue on wearing thigh high boots in the summer. I personally look forward to trying all of these styles myself before the season ends, and I hope I was able to inspire all of you to do the same!

Feel free to leave me a comment telling me which of the above styles you liked the most, which styles you plan on trying, or share a whole new way you might like to style thigh high boots in the summer!

Anyway, thank you all for reading and expect to see another post from me later on this week. Have a kick ass Wednesday everyone, love you guys!


Adidas Superstar Sneakers | One Pair Of Shoes—Three Different Outfits

Hey errbody, how’s it hangin’?! Feel Free to tell me all about your day in the comments, and remember—you don’t have to be shy! I don’t bite very hard lol.

So last week when I returned home from Destin, I ordered a pair of used Adidas Superstar Sneakers from Poshmark. I had been dying to have these shoes for the longest time, but I was waiting to find a good deal online.

Finally, a decent pair had been listed on Poshmark at a low price, and I was able to snatch ’em up for $20!

But long before I actually purchased the shoes, I was on Pinterest searching for cute outfits I could wear them with.

 Unfortunately though, I didn’t have all the articles of clothing that I’d need in order to put together the outfits I wanted to try. So instead I took what I had available in my wardrobe, and I came up with a few styles of my own!

•  •  •



My first outfit was pretty simple. As you can see, I styled my new sneakers with a pair of light wash jeggings (American Eagle Outfitters) and an Olive 1/2 sleeve crop top.

I specifically chose an Olive top to add some color to the outfit so that It wouldn’t be totally monochromatic. Plus, I love the color Olive!

And I thought since the jeggings were mid-rise, and fit me almost as if they were high waisted, that a crop top would be a great way to complete the look.

•  •  •




For my second outfit, I wore the same pair of jeggings from American Eagle that I used in Outfit #1. But this time instead of a crop top, I added a flowy black cold shoulder top.

I especially love how the top here is strappy, and that the black shoulder straps sort of coincide with the stripes on the sneakers.

And not only are the jeggings from American Eagle, but the top is from American Eagle as well.

•  •  •



The last way I styled my new Adidas Superstars was with an adorable sleeveless choker shift dress from American Eagle.

The dress actually has sort of a light olive colored ombre wash that (when paired with my new sneakers) makes for a punky-skater look, in my opinion.

And though I am a fan of all three looks, I believe the shift dress is my favorite. Not to mention it’s super comfortable!

But now that you’ve seen the different outfits I was able to put together, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Like which outfits did you like, and which one was your favorite? Or do you have any stylish ideas in mind you’d like to share?

You can just leave your responses in the comment section, and don’t forget to follow my blog, Vital For Style, if you haven’t already!

Anyway, thanks for reading guys! I hope you enjoyed the post, and I’ll be back again soon!

Style Saturday | 30 Spring Outfit Ideas & Inspiration


Hey everyone! So I know it’s a little late for a Saturday post, but who really cares? Honestly.

Anyway, I thought I’d share some of these awesome spring outfit ideas with you guys, even though it’s still January! No harm in being prepared right?

And speaking of January, my 20th birthday is on January 27th! Yay!

And lastly, I want to remind you guys to go follow my Instagram @lexidashiell, and I’ll know to give you a follow back if you either comment on this post or one of my recent Instagram photos!

So, enough of that. Let’s get to these absolutely adorable spring outfit ideas!







A lot like the previous outfit, this one is a great choice for the seasonal transition since it is worn with a thick sweater/cardigan. The boots and hat are also a great and stylish addition.



This beautiful lace kimono is a perfect match to the white heeled gladiator sandals. The Fedora hat also plays in nicely, as well as the classic white v-neck tee and high waisted shorts.



These gladiator sandals ROCK! They look incredible with the side slit top and denim cut-offs. And let’s not forget the great accessories she incorporated! The necklace and bag are definitely making a hot style statement.



I love this plaid flannel-crop top-and cut off combo. It’s a great and simple look for those warm sunny days we will see this spring.



I am in love with the color olive when it comes to clothing. So my obsession with this olive off the shoulder top is no surprise. And distressed denim makes me weak in the knees, so seeing them put together is a total stylegasm for me.



So here we’ve got a classic tee tucked in the front of some high waisted white denim shorts. Super classic, and super perfect for spring.





I really like this nude colored  ruffle tank, and it looks great over these white shorts.



This is a sooner cute cardigan, and it works fabulously with the loose white top that she tucked into her high waisted pattern shorts.



I love the design on this cute little two piece, but I’m not a huge fan of her boots. I think a pair of scrappy platform wedges would have fit in much nicer.



This is a really cute classic pink romper, but what makes the outfit are the open-toe heeled saddles.





This is an adorable floral front lace up dress. The outfit is completed with a pair of light brown over the knee boots. Cuteee.



This is a really cute cold shoulder dress, but I think it would look better in a color other than mint. I’m not a huge fan of the fringe boots either, and like the patterned two piece outfit from before, I think it would look better with scrappy platform wedges.



This is a really classic yet classy look, with the short khaki colored skirt and white tee. I also like that she wore the braided sandals instead of heeled sandals, because it actually makes the whole outfit look a little more casual.



I’m dying to have this outfit! The dress, the sandals, everything. I love it! It’s perfect. And I honestly don’t know what else I can say lol.



This floral dress is super cute, but what I really love are the gray booties and accessories! Her sunglasses and bag are totally adorable, and those gray booties are to die for.



I think this is a perfect casual look for spring! Wearing a belted shirt dress with white sneakers was a great style choice on her part. And who couldn’t love that bag!



I’m loving this sleeveless knit dress, and they are a perfect fit to go with those open toe booties.



I couldn’t love this outfit more. I’m dying to have this nude maxi skirt, with the center slit and string tie around the waist. And I don’t know if I could live much longer without the off shoulder crop top she has on either!



Now that I’m looking at it, I see that these are shorts and not a skirt. But let’s just pretend she is wearing that edgy and cute see through lace top with a classic white mini skirt.



This red floral dress just wouldn’t be the same without the keyhole in the front. But with the keyhole, the dress is killer. And the white adidas sneakers make a hot touch. (If you havn’t noticed yet, I really love the white sneaker style trend)




This is another classic classy look, combining a black sleeveless tunic dress with a gray sweater/cardigan and tie up heeled sandals.



This is a super hot casual look. Here we see the white sneakers again, but this time they are worn with a striped hoody dress. I will absolutely have to try this outfit this spring!



I love love LOVE this outfit. Though the white pattern dress looks adorable here, I think any tunic dress would go awesome with a classic denim jacket. And of course, those booties tie the look together!



This outfit is incredibly sexy and it is definitely a must have this spring. A stylish Maxi skirt with a full slit and a spaghetti strap crop top, and probably the hottest pair of heels we’ve seen so far!



It’s pretty risky adding a denim jacket with suede, but I think it works here! I’ve already got the button up suede mini skirt, so I’ll be wearing this in spring for sure.




This ruffley off the shoulder top works great with this skirt. It definitely has a beachy feel that would be perfect for sunny days towards the end of spring.




This outfit is sort of tricky on the eye because the button up skirt is usually suede and the exact color of that top she’s got on lol, but this totally rocks when added with the killer gladiator sandals.





This whole outfit just works, all the way around. From the floral off the shoulder, to the distressed holey jeans and scrappy brown platform heels, all the way to the accessories.



We have yet to see the white sneakers with jeans until now, and I absolutely love them with these distressed skinnies. It looks hot with this sleeveless crop top, but I think it could also look good with a white tee.


And if you havn’t already, take a look at my post on style trends you’ll see in spring of 2017!

Vital for Style | Featuring Friday’s Look of The Day




So, I was walking around at the lake the other day with my boyfriend and he was kind enough to take these pictures for me.

But I really just wanted to share this outfit with you guys and hear what your opinions are!


Here I have styled a hooded leather jacket over a teal longline top with distressed light-wash skinny jeans and a pair of camel colored faux suede booties.


For makeup, I wore a dark red lipstick and went light on the eyes by using only mascara and a little bit of black eye liner on the waterline. Then I did a little highlighting and contouring to complete the look.

So leave a comment and let me know what you think about today’s featured outfit! And keep an eye out for some of my future #OOTD posts, so you can stay up to date!



Fab Friday | Trends to Keep an Eye Out For This Spring 2017

The time for Spring is almost near, so we’ve gotta prepare to make a big transition to our wardrobe and do a little spring cleaning!

If you read my previous post Fashion Friday | What You’ll See Trending in Winter 2017, you’ve already seen some of the 2017 style essentials. But now that we’ve worked our way through the winter trends, I’m sharing a list of trends that you’ll most likely see during your seasonal transition.




Choker tops are one of my favorite style trends. They are a perfect combination of elegance and sex appeal, and incorporating a choker, choker top, or choker dress to your wardrobe this spring will keep you on the track to transition success!



I absolutely adore the bohemian style. The essence of bohemian is focusing on free and flowy fabrics, but there aren’t any hard and fast rules about what is and isn’t bohemian.

You might have noticed that tunics are trending during every season really, and they can be worn with anything and everything. Though I have to say, a pair of skinny jeans and a pair of booties worn with a hot tunic is a no fail. And a cute tunic or T-shirt dress worn with sneakers or gladiator sandals can also make for a stylish ensemble!






Fashion Friday | What You’ll See Trending in Winter 2017

Hey everyone, It’s Fashion Friday again, and I hope all of you have had a good year so far! And It may seem like 2017 has only just begun, but it will be spring before we know it and all of our winter outfits aren’t going to cut it anymore.

No worries though, because I’ve got a list of some of the hottest seasonal styles you’ll see trending this year!

Make sure you keep an eye out for my next couple of posts, because they will feature the rest of the year’s trends.

– Winter –



A leather jacket is essential whenever you’re trying to pull of a sort of grungy look. Personally, I love wearing my leather jacket with a pair of distressed, light-wash skinny jeans, a white or gray loose-fitting tee, and a pair of black booties or combat boots. You can even top it off with a black ball cap!

Utility jackets have been really hot this winter, and you’ll mostly find them different shades of khaki and olive green. I know first hand that an olive utility jacket can go with just about anything, and it’s versatility makes it one of my personal favorites.



I just love the cozy feeling of an oversized sweater. And If you’re aiming for chic, a big old sweater is definitely a go to.

Oversized tops and tees are great too! They can be worn with knee high boots and jeans or leggings for a preppy-chic look, or you can wear them with skinny jeans and white sneakers if you decide to go the hipster route.
