OOTD - Over The Knee Boots

zara thigh high boots

I always said that it takes a confident girl to walk around town in a wide brimmed hat.  Something about wearing a hat draws stares and looks that admittedly takes some time to get used to, but I got over it. Wear a pair of thigh high boots around town, and a hat is the least of your worries. Touted as one of Fall 2015's must-have items, over-the-knee boots have been on my wish list for some time and when I saw this perfect pair from Zara I had to have them. Sure they garner a few raised eyebrows, but there is absolutely nothing you can wear that is more empowering than thigh high boots. Paired with a simple long-sleeved shift dress and my signature hat, I couldn't tell if the boots made me want to strut like the world was my runway or kick some tush like it was my battlefield. Whatever the situation, over the knee boots are officially my new obsession and I'm really looking forward to having them transition my wardrobe into the colder months.

As a pear shaped petite girl, I was always hesitant to try thigh high boots.  I carry the majority of my weight in my bottom half, and didn't want the dreaded bulge to affect the tops of these boots.  I'm happy to say that the slight opening at the back of the boots make them perfect for pear shapes ladies, and the modest block heel really help to give the allusion of height - a dream come true for us shorties! If you're looking to get into the trend of the over-the-knee boot, I highly recommend this pair from Zara.

    1. I think that you're going to love them Nancy! I was in the same boat, falling in love with thigh high boots that were way out of my price range - these ones from Zara are a great alternative :)
