'Come, You Spirits That Tend on Mortal Thoughts, Unsex Me Here'


Since I thought yesterday was today and posted the Instagram shots a day early (duhduh, Amy), you guys are gonna get an extra post from me this week :)  Thanks for all your cool comments on that post by the way! I'm so glad you like my candid kinda everyday shots!

So, for the longest time, I've wanted over-the-knee boots but couldn't find a pair that didn't make me feel like a street-walker. Found this pair at Victoria's Secret, and since they have a pretty basic silhouette, are flats and just skim the top of my knee, I took the chance and bought them. Vickies also has them in a gorgeous brown, but I exercised some self-control (yes, occasionally it wins out) and just went with the black pair.

What think ye ladies of the over-the-knee boot?
 






What I'm Wearing:
Boots: Report via Victoria's Secret (check them out in brown here)
Free People Lace Dress
Hat: Asos
Collar: Asos
Tights: Milly via Bloomingdales
Lipstick: Mac


Awesome weekend wishes to all!

  2. I love otk boots, if they are done right. I bought a pair last year and love wearing them (and a flat heel definitely helps with that street walker vibe, lol).
    I love your boots and how you paired them with such a pretty dress. Maybe you should get the brown too. Just kidding, you stay on that shopping ban. :)

  7. hi sweetie,
    lovely dress and you style it very well with polka tights and super cute combo with those over-the-knee boots. over the knee boots are must have item for 2012 i think. i havent found over the knee boots that suitable for me because i think they wont fit me as good as they fit you. you look so chic and classy at the same time! love that hat too!
