Shopping | 8 Best Over the Knee & Knee High Boots for Fall


I am so excited about this fall weather we have been having here in Vancouver and couldn't wait to share my top picks for over-the-knee and knee high boots for fall. There are a ton of great trends this year (and some great staples from last year!) Read on for my top 8 boots and why they made my favorites list! And, as always, shop them all in the widget below! 

1. Cognac Riding Boots: A pair of cognac riding boots is a staple for every woman's fall wardrobe. They are the easiest boot to style with fall outfits; from jeans and tunics, to leggings and cozy sweaters. Riding boots never fail. These INC International Concepts ones are a great pick for the price and quality!

2. Tory Burch Suede OTK Boots with Bows: Tory Burch is known for making some of the most-loved fall boots year after year. This year is no exception! These suede over the knee boots are right on trend (suede OTK boots are big again this fall) and the bow detailing on the back is an added touch to bring them into this season. 

3. Steve Madden "Gorgeous" OTK Boots: These boots were so popular last year, and I am thrilled to see that they are back this fall. These are lookalikes for the blogger-favorited Stuart Weitzman OTK boots; but these are 1/5th of the price! I have them in the grey suede and will definitely be wearing them again this fall.

4. Tory Burch Over The Knee Boots: I had to include one more pair of Tory Burch boots on this list; they are so beautiful. These leather OTK boots have an elastic back making them super comfortable. I also really like that the logo is a bit understated on this pair. 

5. Wedge OTK Boots: These boots are so affordable (under $60!) and right on trend for fall. The 'sneaker style' wedge shape combined with the stripe detailing on the toe, definitely makes these boots a stand-out. I love that these boots are channeling major Gucci vibes with that green and red ribbon on the toe. These would be perfect to wear with a street style look all fall! 

6. MK Knee High Leather Boots: These Michael Kors Knee High boots are a perfect fall staple. These boots can be dressed up for work with a pencil skirt or can be dressed down on the weekends, so I am in love with their versatility. I should also add that I am 5'8 and love the height of these boots!

7. Vince Camuto OTK Light Suede Boots: I am sharing a photo of these on my instagram today; these have been my favorite new boots this season. I love the light suede color and the wide shape at the top (different than the tight over-the-knee trend a la the Steve Madden gorgeous boot). I highly recommend these boots, but, I would say go up a half size from your normal size!

8. Aerosoles Knee High Boots: To wrap up this list I had to share these knee high boots. Being aerosoles, these boots are actually comfortable and make the perfect boot for a long weekend of running errands, etc.

Work Wear | Bell Sleeves & Fall Colors

Happy Monday everyone! Since this is the first Monday of fall, I wanted to share my favorite fall wear-to-work look of the moment. Fall fashion is always my favorite because I love the rich jewel tone colors and am always drawn to all the different fabric textures (like the faux fur of this leopard print clutch!) 

 While I love everything about this fall office outfit; the real stand-out piece is the bell sleeved button down shirt. I just cannot get enough of these sleeves! The accordion bell sleeve shape reminds me of 1920's bankers & lawyers. It's a "power shirt" to say the least! I wanted to pair the dramatic shirt with a fall skirt, and this wine / burgundy pencil skirt was the perfect match.

 The quality of this skirt really impressed me, as often affordable pencil skirts are a super thin knit which is neither flattering nor particularly office appropriate. This skirt is definitely not that; it is a thicker, heavier spandex type material that is ah-mazing. It holds everything in and doesn't show any lines (of your tucked in shirt, etc.) I highly recommend it!

To accessorize this skirt and shirt combo, I wanted to add one more stand out piece so I went with a leopard print clutch. Leopard print and red is a classic combo, but I have always been more partial to leopard print and burgundy. Especially for fall, this combination can't be beat!

Finally I went with my most comfortable work heels since this is the ultimate busy, running-around- an-office fall outfit. If you don't know about these comfortable heels, be sure to check out my guide to comfortable heels for work where I've talked more about them (and others).

I am back at it today with my busy work schedule. If you follow me on instagram, you'll know that i am in the middle of a 6 week trial, so life is pretty busy at the moment. It's great though- and I love the work I am getting to do!

I hope you all have an excellent work day (and whole work week of course haha). Come back tomorrow for a new blog post!! Throughout the fall I have so many looks I want to share with you guys that I will, for the most part, be posting 4x a week instead of 3; meaning I will be adding in a Tuesday post!

New York Fashion Week - Day 5

As I mentioned in yesterday's post; today is my LAST post recapping my September 2017 New York Fashion Week experience. I am still in shock that I was able to attend NYFW and go to so many amazing shows and events. What really topped off the trip though and helped make it my dream fashion week was attending the Alice & Olivia presentation on my last day.

I am a huge Alice & Olivia fan and heard rumblings through the fashion world that the spring/summer 18 collection was particularly stunning. I woke up early on September 12th (despite having had less than four hours of sleep each night of fashion week) just because I was so excited for this presentation!

First up though- my blogger squad and I decided that since the presentation wasn't until 11am, this would be a perfect morning for us to all go out and take some squad pics. These blogger ladies (Jess, Candace, Lily and Keyma) are not only huge fashion inspirations to me, but are also really sweet, really cool people. I can't imagine fashion week would have been nearly as fun without them! Below are two my favorite photos that we snapped. I'll also include a widget of what we're wearing in case you want to shop any of our outfits!

After taking way too many photos and drinking way too much coffee, we headed down to Skylight Galleries for the Alice & Olivia presentation. As I mentioned when recapping the Banana Republic presentation, I love the atmosphere of presentations so so much. The energy of the room is just different, and being able to go right up to the clothes allows you to really notice detail and quality you would not typically get to see in a runway show.

The Alice and Olivia spring/summer '18 collection is nothing short of amazing. The presentation itself was well done with different 'rooms' being created within the gallery to go with the different outfits. The name of the game was clearly color - and the pieces give throw back vibes to not just one, but multiple eras, which I found really cool. For example, there are pieces reminiscent of 1960s palm springs. Check these out:

There are also pieces that give more of a 70s hippie chic vibe. Check out these pics:

There is even a nod to the over the top fashion that was the 1980s with this sequin ball gown:

Overall my favorite pieces in the collection are the, below, jumpsuit (I neeeeeed it), sparkle tee shirt, and the above palm tree print items. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this collection and what your favorite piece(s) are!

The Alice & Olivia presentation was from 11-1.. but I needed to leave to get back to the hotel and book it to the airport by 12:30. As per usual, NYC traffic was insane so I was in a bit of a panic all the way to JFK, but I made my flight and could not have been happier that I made it to the Alice & Olivia presentation before flying out!

My first fashion week was everything I could have hoped for. I am already getting excited for next year! If you have any questions about my experience at fashion week definitely feel free to ask!
