The Most Comfortable & Most Loved OTK Boots Of The Season
I wanted to share with you guys this week that I finally got my hands on a new pair of OTK boots and I have to tell you I’m so happy I did! Finding a style that’s perfect for my skinny legs has ALWAYS been so crazy hard. Finding one’s that were comfortable for my recovering knee –even harder.
As most of you know who have been following me for some time now, I tore my ACL earlier this year and pulled my hamstring in late July making so many of everyday life things a lot more difficult (ie wearing heels, running, wearing uncomfortable clothing, etc). The thing that my injury did teach me was to be inventive with how to wear comfortable clothes but still look cute. This same concept came into play when I was purchasing a pair of over-the-knee boots (OTK).
I had been wearing the same one’s for the last two/three years but didn’t love how they looked. They didn’t fit right around my thigh and the heel wasn’t going to work for me this time around. Luckily, I found some inexpensive OTK boots at DSW and I was hooked. I tried them on and they slipped on so easily and tied in the back which was PERFECT. I walked around the store and thought to myself, these are doable I’m getting them. I wore them an entire day while shooting and they never bothered my feet. And guess what? A lot of bloggers are all sporting these inexpensive Stuart Weitzman look a-likes because let’s be real, most of us can’t afford the designer pair. While I love the SW pair, I tend to go for practicality and comfort and of course something that’s budget friendly. The pair I got from Unisa were only $80! Such a steal.
I paired my OTK boots with a distressed sweater I got from the rack by Supplies by Union Bay and my favorite pair of Rag & Bone skinnies that I got from Intermix. You can shop this entire look if you care about direct links on my LIKETOKNOWIT or here.
I was so happy I got to meet with my photographer Whitney over the weekend. Her and I have been working on her site so head over and keep on checking as we constantly make improvement! And of course to show her some support. I love that her and I have been able to connect not only as blogger and photographer but also as friends. She’s so easy to shoot with and she does a great job of making me feel comfortable behind the lens. Scroll down to see our fun shoot that we shot in Downtown Eugene.

I hope you all enjoyed this full fashion post. Would you love to see more outfits, more beauty or loving all the food?
I’m trying to diversify my blog and just post what I love and I had so much fun with Whit shooting this!
