Boot season is finally here and a must have is a nice pair of over the knee boots. Now I must admit when the trend emerged back on the scene last fall I was a little skeptical about purchasing a pair. I know that not all 40 plus women feel the same, but I don’t think every trend is for me. The beautiful thing about fashion is you can wear whatever you feel comfortable in, there are really no rules, I just have personal rules for myself. So, I honestly wasn’t sure if over the knee boots were age appropriate for me. I know what your thinking, “are you serious”, yes, I’m very serious..lol. But I quickly realized that just like all fashion trends it’s really all about how you wear them.
When I first saw these boots it was love at first site. Since my knee surgery I just have not been able to stay in heels for long periods of time and the older I get comfort is key. The low heel on these boots satisfy my need for comfort and style. They are a beautiful shade of grey and have a rustic, broken-in look. I styled them with leggings and a long cardigan for a casual look. I took the same leggings, and added a swing dress, leather vest and this beautiful blue and grey multi-colored scarf (also from soft surroundings) for a more polished (work/office) look.
Soft surroundings is definitely my go to place for quality staples. I do a lot of thrifting and bargain shopping but I don’t mind investing in items that will last me for years to come. Honestly over the knee boots are available every fall in almost every shoe store it’s just that some seasons they are more popular. So even if they are not showcased in every major fashion magazine next fall, I will definitely be rocking this pair (this is me being hip..lol).
