OTK Boot Dupes

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

I think we can all agree that over the knee boots are one of the biggest fashion trends of fall/winter 2016. I know that I already have snagged three pairs...oops. Besides choosing what color you want and if you want one with a heel or not, there is the decision of what brand to get. I know we all love our name brands, but I often find that the cheaper versions end up being better! I recently got Steve Madden black OTK boots and thought they were the bee's knees. They are so beautiful on but after wearing them once I realized I had made a huge mistake. Aprox. $90 for the top of the boot to constantly slide down, the heel to be too tall and steep, and the MOST uncomfortable shoes I have ever worn in my life. I wore them for one night and half my toes were numb for a WEEK. I am not even exaggerating. I was so disappointed because I love the look of OTK boots. But then, Target came to save the day (as usual) with an amazing selection of boots! I got these OTK boots from Target in black for less than $40! Right now they are online for $59.99 but you can get 30% off with the code COLD at checkout. I chose these with no heel so that I can wear them to both work or play and be comfortable. Plus I am already almost 5'8", so height is not something I often want to add. These are pratically twins of the very popular Stuart Weitzman OTK boots at Nordstrom that run for a (insane) $798. I don't know what human has $800 to spend on one pair of boots, but that human is not me. So if you are looking for an affordable pair of OTK boots that are both stylish and comfortable, look no more! The specific ones I linked come in black, grey, and taupe/brown. However the taupe looks more like a cream to me online. I did not see that shade in person so I can't say exactly how that color looks. I am normally a 7 or 7.5 in boots and I got the 7.5 in these and they fit perfect. I also linked some other styles I love for great prices! Happy shopping. Btw, in the photo I am wearing the boots from Palm Tree Boutique! They are going fast!

Fall Footwear

Friday, September 2, 2016

When I did my post on fall trends on Monday, I really had to refrain myself from adding too many shoes. I love boots and booties and they make SO many styles now. I seriously want every pair, but my bank account would not be too happy with me if I gave in to the temptation of every cute shoe I laid eyes on. Sooo, I decided to do a post strictly on fall footwear! I narrowed down my favorite styles that are really big for this coming fall and then picked my favorites in each category. It saves you the time of looking through pages and pages of shoes without getting overwhelmed. Obviously, your tall boots and over the knees are going to be a little pricier than a pair of booties. Boots are definitely an investment piece because tall boots always come back in style and can be worn for multiple fall and winters. Which of these are your favorite? Or do you have a favorite brand? Let me know in the comments or shoot me an email! Don't forget to subscribe in the right-hand menu so that you never miss a post! All of the headers are direct links to the boots.

Fall Boutique Round Up

Monday, August 29, 2016

The first day of fall (September 22) is quickly approaching, and I'm having mixed feelings. I love summer weather and days by the water in a bikini. I'm the type of person who is always cold, so 80-90 degrees feels great to me. But fall means bonfires and hot caramel macchiatos instead of iced, football and flannels, hometown fairs and my birthday ;). But what I love most about fall is the clothes! I rounded up my fall favorites from all of my go-to clothing boutiques. Each header is a direct link to their website if you see something you like! 

Some trends for this fall that I'm loving:

Over the knee boots
Earthy colors: brown, camel, burnt orange, mustard yellow, hunter green
Flowy maxi dresses
Vintage, thin, buckled belts
Off the shoulder tops
Mauve or dusty pink
Chunky bib necklaces and chokers
Printed or textured booties
Royal and ice blues
Long cardigans and flannels
Bandanna necklaces
Peep toe wedges and booties
