When it comes to style, this is as edgy as I get haha! It’s not very often that you’ll see me sporting a head-to-toe black outfit but this one has definitely become a fall favorite. Today, I’m chatting about how to wear over the knee boots with a midi dress (and my first impressions!).

Being the petite lady that I am, “over the knee” anything tends to be a recipe for disaster. While most look amazing with boots just grazing the top of their knee, “over the knee” to someone under five foot really means full leg haha (not even kidding). For this reason, I’ve steered clear of the trend because a.) I thought I could never pull them off, b.) my thighs were usually too big for them and c.) the ones I tried on ALWAYS ended up stretching to my upper thigh…. if I could even get it that high lol. You know those days when you can’t get your jeans on so you lay on the bed and suck in your stomach as much as you can just to zip your pants? Just imagine that in shoe form. But then one day I found the most beautiful and perfect boots ever and I have to say that they were worth the wait…and the struggle of putting on a form fitting boot 😉
Finding the perfect boot was half the battle though. Now what would I wear them with? Although I like the idea of pairing them with jeans, I’m just couldn’t see the possibility of fitting both my legs and my jeans into a pair of boots so I tried it with this midi dress and fell in love. You guys, I am obsessed! I mean, the midi dress was love at first sight with it’s dark floral print, ruffled details and floaty hemline (I’ve probably worn it like seven times already!) but styling it with these boots took it to a whole new level. I normally wear tights with my dresses during the winter, but these are SO much warmer and look incredibly chic – ahhhh! Off the blog, I’ve also styled them with mini dresses and sweater/skirt combos and they just pull together any look so well. At first, I wasn’t so sure about the black because my wardrobe consists mainly of light colors, but they really do go with everything and even though they are bit “edgier” than what I normally wear, they can easily be styled in a feminine way.
