6 ways to wear Over the Knee Boots

OTK boots are such a trend this year and it's one trend that I'm actually super excited about! 
I bought these boots last year and they served me well, I wore them every chance I got. They're by the brand Unisa over at DSW, and although they don't have them this year (THESE are the most similar), they have cute flat options (I actually have these and I LOVE them! & how cute are THESE?!?)

See more of my favorite OTK styles at the end of this post!


1. WITH A MIDI SKIRT ||


Being that I'm on the petite side (I'm 5'3') I didn't think I'd be able to pull off a midi skirt, let alone a midi skirt with OTK boots, but it actually works! 
Pairing OTK boots with a skirt that just reaches the top of the boot is a perfect way to transition your summer skirts into cooler weather, especially if you don't want to break out the tights or leggings yet...
Style Tip: Chose a Fall appropriate color and you'll look chic and ready for the season!


2. WITH CORDUROYS || 


Cords are so fun to wear in the cooler months, plus they come in tons and tons of colors. I like the texture that cords add to an outfit, instead of the flatness or jeans or jeggings.
Style Tip: Choose a bright color to really make your cords pop against the OTK boots!


3. WITH WHITE PANTS ||


Wearing white in the Fall & Winter is my favorite look, to me it just looks so cozy, especially paired with a chunky knit sweater or flannel! OTK boots with white pants makes the white more appropriate for the changing seasons!
Style Tip: Go for a monochrome look by wearing all white with your OTK boots to make then stand out!


4. WITH DENIM || 


My favorite way to dress up denim is to add wedge or heeled boots, especially OTK boots. You're outfit immediately goes from drab to fab! (Yea, I know I sound like an infomercial!)
Style Tip: Add a Fall lip color and you're ready to head out the door!


5. WITH A SHORT DRESS ||


This is probably my favorite OTK outfit! Adding OTK boots to a short dress makes it seem a little more appropriate, especially if you're not comfortable wearing short dresses. I love shapeless dresses that you can style based on how you're feeling that day.. A little bloated? Leave it shapeless, and add a cute vest! Feeling sassy? Belt it to show off your figure! Anything goes!
Style Tip: Opt for a dress that is longer in the back, so you don't flash everyone every time you bend over. 


6. WITH LEGGINGS ||


Fleece lined leggings, that is! It's a great way to stay comfy, yet stylish at the same time. Like I said before, throwing on OTK boots with an otherwise casual outfit really glams it up!
Style Tip: I'm sure you've heard this one before but.. make sure your top covers your butt! 

Here are a few fabulous pairs of OTK boots! How awesome are these, and the color is to die for!!! AND They're from TARGET!!
I may or may not have these and these (which are under $45!) in the mail on their way to me... Reviews coming soon!!

Shop Bop F+F SALE is here!!

It's FINALLY HERE!! The ShopBop friends & Family sale!

Last year I took advantage of the sale and got my very first Rebecca Minkoff bag at an incredible price! This year I have my eye on a few more things, like Sorel boots for the winter (seriously, last winter I was kicking myself for not getting them!), and at least ONE THING from the Cupcakes & Cashmere line, seriously, I've been drooling over her stuff since the line launched!
Now is also a great time to invest in a pair of Ray Bans. I've had mine for the last 2 years and they still look as new as when I bought them! Such a great investment! 

Below are more of my picks!



What are you getting??
