It really took me a while to get into the over the knee boot thing… I’ve lusted over the Stuart Weitzman boots (these, these, and these) for years, but I couldn’t bring myself to spend that much on boots I know would get beat up because of all of the walking I did in New York. Hallie’s always rocking boots as pants and it’s a fun look, especially for a night out. After having a bit of a wardrobe crisis when I was getting ready a few weeks ago, I knew I needed a new pair of black boots. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted so I headed for the Nordstrom shoe department to see what caught my eye. I ended up walking home with this pair that I’m wearing and this pair, too. Per the story of my life, this pair has since gone on major sale. I’ve worn both styles quite a few times over the last few weeks and they’re both really comfortable for the height. If you’re in the market for a pair of suede ankle booties, I would highly recommend scooping these up on sale! (They also come in navy and burgundy!)
Initially, I was worried that these boots would only pair with skirts or dresses, but they fit over skinny jeans just fine! And they look great with tights, too. They really make your legs look a mile long, which is never a bad thing! For the comfort and quality at the price, they’re the best that I’ve found on the market right now. When I was searching for heeled boots and booties, I had a hard time finding a heel under 4″. 4″ is typically my rule… I know I won’t end up wearing them if they’re uncomfortable to stand or walk in! These OTK boots measure in at 3.5″ and they’re just right!
Since over the knee boots, bare legs, and a skirt can look a little flashy, I made sure to cover up on top. A trusty turtleneck and a plaid poncho make this outfit feel daytime appropriate! However, I’d definitely add tights for any type of work environment just to be safe.
