SUEDE BOOTS - FOREVER21

First post of the new year, which is so exciting! I've been saving this post idea for about two weeks, and it's all because of these boots. I've been desperately hunting for a pair of thigh high boots, either leather or suede, for what feels like an eternity. Everything I found either had too high of a heel, didn't come up far enough or didn't fit properly, or was way out of my price range. I love luxury items and will definitely splurge on something well made, but to me these are a seasonal purchase so I didn't want to invest too much. I was browsing at Forever21 one day after work, as you do, and stumbled across this pair of grey faux suede ones! When I saw the price had been reduced to $22, I just had to try them on.

Happily enough, they were a perfect fit, and I came away with a great bargain. I love that they're a break from the usual black I gravitate to, which makes them fun to style! They fit well, they're comfortable, and I can get them on over jeans which is important to me as well. I can't wait to see what other combinations I come up with over the winter. For this post, I wore them with an oversized plaid shirt (never fear, there are shorts underneath) and one of my favorite cardigans for the extra length and marriage of colors. If you're a petite girl like me, you can get away with a look like this by playing with proportions. If you're blessed to be taller than my measly 5'2ish, then I would just modify this outfit with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings, if those are more your speed. Random side note -- I'm wearing my Kylie Lip Kit in the shade True Brown K! What do you think? Despite it taking over a month to arrive, I've been enjoying the quality and color so far. 

Are you guys rocking thigh-high/over the knee boots this season? Let me know in a comment down below, and thanks for reading!

  1. These boots are killer. I love thigh high boots. They are so sexy and make any outfit feel a little more dangerous.
