Over The Knee Deep in Fall

I am simply over the moon about my new over the knee boots.


I have been on a months long quest to find the perfect pair of black suede over the knee boots that don’t make me look like I’m recreating a scene from Pretty Woman.  It’s a fine line and anyone who has tried on a pair of OTK boots knows exactly what I’m talking about. I also wasn’t emotionally or financially prepared to commit to the Stuart Weitzman boots I was really dying over. You see, I like nice things as you’ve probably figured out, but I’m also a realist; suede boots in midwest winter are not a high-dollar purchase. So I searched high and low for months in countless stores, malls, websites, and catalogues. I finally was at Nordstrom preparing myself to make the ultimate commitment to Mr. Weitzman, when I stumbled upon a very unsuspecting pair from Chinese Laundry which I got at an absolute steal.


These little babies are great because they have a suede front and a black stretch back.  So if you’re like me and all other women over the age of 13, small boots shafts can be a huge annoyance, or should I say tiny…  I don’t consider myself to have large calves, but I constantly find myself huffing and puffing over pull-on boots.  I have legitimately had to ask a man at Nordstrom’s shoe department to pull a boot off once. I was mortified for about two seconds until he was like “it’s cool, I do this about 30 times a day.”


If you live anywhere with an actual winter, which is pretty much everywhere these days, they are the perfect going out shoe. For a nighttime look, I tend to pair these with mini skirts or dresses and tights. For a more casual look, I love a sweater dress. I especially love this one from LOFT. I pretty much live in my trench coat. I wear a lot of sweaters and I feel like a trench coat isn’t viciously strangling me like a wool coat tends to do. Oh great band name, Vicious Wool Coat.


You’ll also realize pretty quickly here that I love jewelry. I tend to just wear jewelry because I like it and without a lot of thought put into it. Which means I wear a lot of the same jewelry over and over again, but it looks different with each outfit. I’m obviously a big fan of J. Crew jewelry like I’m wearing here.

      Thanks! It’s the Robinson Double Zip Tote. It fits everything, but still looks really structured. You can get it at Nordstrom or Bloomingdales.

  • Yesterday was Chuck’s birthday! 🐶🎉 We made no plans this weekend other than doing whatever he wanted. So he had about 28 bones and 42 walks. Interestingly, this is also how I eat all my birthday treats. Like mother, like son. 👸🏼🐶❤️ .

  • Today on A Study in Chic we’re talking about how women apologize too much at work and what to say instead. It’s something I started doing a few years ago and it’s helped me immensely in feeling more confident and in control. I’m sharing what I did to stop apologizing and what you can say instead. .
