Styling Over the Knee Boots

dolce vita over the knee boots, strawberry chic, OTK boots, fall fashion

I finally jumped on the over the knee (OTK) boot trend after finding these Dolce Vita Owin boots at the Saks Off Fifth outlet after Christmas. I previously had a pair of flat black OTK boots from Coach (I worked there for three years) but I ended up selling them on Poshmark because honestly, I felt like a pirate when I wore them. 😜

So it took me a while to jump back into the trend, but I’m always loving my friends on Instagram posting about them! I especially love them with winter dresses because they cover more of your leg to make it feel more appropriate in the cold weather. I probably didn’t wear a dress on this date night because I was too lazy to pop some gradual tan on them, and the world is not ready for these bad boys 🙂 I’m definitely a dress girl for all the comfort reasons but also I just feel more like myself in them. So look for more looks with these boots with dresses in the future!

Everything else I’m wearing is very affordable. My vest is old from Old Navy, but this style can be found at just about any store these days (linking a few options in the widget at the end). My casual top is from Target. I definitely recommend to let it air dry to avoid it shrinking up on you! I’ve learned the hard way in the past.

My legging jeans are pretty old from Abercrombie and Fitch, I can’t believe they even still fit, haha! Goes to how just how stretchy they are 😉 I think it’s important to wear tight/skinny/jegging type pants when wearing boots in general. Bunching up just doesn’t look as flattering to me!  If you love my watch, you can use code STRAWBERRYCHIC15 for 15% off your purchase at Daniel Wellington (I don’t get a kickback or anything 🙂

I’m currently finishing this post as I watch last’s night’s episode of The Bachelor. I’m not going to lie, it’s getting hard to watch. I definitely miss the Sean Lowe type Bachelor days…Tim and I decided to save the $50 a month and just get the internet which really hasn’t been a huge adjustment after going 4 months without any of it. We use Apple TV to watch things later on, but I wish Bravo and E were both on it! If you don’t have cable, what do you do to watch your favorite shows?

Random question, but do you prefer the text at the top like in today’s post or bottom like it’s always been??

Lately on Instagram @strawberrychicxo

  • I still have so much holiday shopping to do but I know my Amazon prime membership is coming in clutch this weekend! Spoken like the true millennial I am 🙌🏼 If you have any Amazon recommendations, let me know in the comments! I haven’t stopped wearing these OTK boots ($79) or petting this pink fur coat 😂 Literally, I always love to touch all the soft things. Tim always points it out when we’re shopping and I’ll subconsciously touch the racks to feel how soft things are. Anyone else??

  • These pretty blush booties are finally back in stock in all sizes and 20% off! They are seriously so comfortable and I’ve already worn them multiple times since getting them last month. Wearing my normal size in boots and I highly recommend picking up a pair 💕 They’re actually more neutral and easier to style than you would think! I’ll share a few looks with them in my stories.
