Hello, hello! One of the top items on my wish list this year was a pair of over the knee boots. This style is so popular right now, it should be really easy to find a pair that works for me, right? Well, if you can’t tell from pictures, I’m 5’9″, so I’ve had the worst time finding boots that actually go over my knees. My legs are extremely long, so every pair I’ve tried hits right below my knee (#tallgirlprobs). After searching all of last winter with no luck, I gave up — until I saw that Stuart Weitzman pair of over the knee boots that just about every blogger has. Unfortunately, I do not have $800 to casually drop on a pair of boots (#brokegirlprobs), so I started hunting for a lookalike.
Last month I shared my favorite styles from Target’s A New Day collection, which included a pair of suede OTK boots that were pretty darn close. I finally pulled the trigger and got them last week. Although these don’t hit 3″ above my knee like they would on normal-sized people, they do ever-so-slightly edge over the top of my knee. I call that a win. They’re affordably priced at just $40 and very comfortable.
If you’ve also had your eyes set on a pair of OTK boots, but aren’t sure how you’d actually wear them, I feel you. I wasn’t sure how practical they were until I got my own pair. There are tons of ways to wear them — with skirts, dresses, leggings and jeans. However you wear your pair, you’re pretty much guaranteed to have longer, leaner-looking legs. One of my favorite ways to style mine is with a sweater worn over a dress for a preppy, fall vibe. And naturally, no fall-winter transitional look is complete without your Starbucks Christmas cup (because, you know, November). Shop my entire outfit below.

Pssssst! I’m still taking any activity, restaurant, coffee shop and bar recommendations for Denver and Boulder, Colorado! Brian and I are putting the finishing touches on our itinerary and would love to know any hidden gems.
Until next time —
