Over-the-knee boots before noon? Let's discuss. On the one hand, they're hard to wear without giving off that fresh hooker vibe (we can thank Pretty Woman for that). On the other hand, something about an extra tall boot over bright tights makes me feel like a fashion super hero.
I blame Devil Wears Prada for making me fall for over-the-knee boots. That scene where Anne Hathaway goes from mild to wild is so clutch. The thigh high boot is not for the faint of heart - Expect weird looks. Possible whispers. Even a little seriously misplaced disapproval. But hold your head high, jaywalk through traffic, and pretend like you're just visiting town from NYC. That's what Beyonce would do (WWBD? LIVE IT).
Today's ensemble went to Target, followed by brunch at The House (my personal favorite brunch in LR). Never be afraid to rock a bold outfit for a seemingly normal day. It makes things a little more interesting. And if all else fails, just save the boots for Halloween. But what a shame that would be.
PS - when choosing an over-the-knee boot, there are a slew of options to consider. Black is safest, suede is much more tame than leather. Flat invites less looks than heels. And a little bit of slouch can actually make the boot look less trashy, in my opinion. And for the love of all that is good and holy, don't go for anything with a major platform. Even the Spice Girls would not approve.
