There are many traditional cocktails and holiday punches that we’ve all enjoyed for generations, but sometimes those traditional cocktails can use a little shaking up!

I had to laugh a few days ago when one of my Facebook friends asked “What is up with hooker boots, skinny jeans and a big sloppy hoodie?” I’m a boot girl, I will wear boots with just about anything and in fact I’m pretty sure I’ve worn what could be called hooker boots with jeans and a hoodie. But I didn’t consider that a fashion look, it was just what I threw on, probably to run to the mailbox. Now, don’t let that sway your opinion of my style, I do know how to pair boots with just about anything and this season there are some hot boot styles that make me feel like I’m a teenager again! (BTW: I do not consider Uggs to be boots, so if that’s what you’re looking for this definitely isn’t the post for you!)
