I loved my OTK boots last year, and the trend remains strong this season. I have a heeled pair, so when I got the opportunity to try a flat pair from Choies for less than $80, I jumped at the chance. I knew I would wear them even more than a heel. My previous pair is loose around the knee, and I liked that these are the more stretchy suede that fits well. I usually wear an 8.5 or 9, and I ordered the 10. They are a perfect fit length wise. Unfortunately at 5’10” they are not quite as over the knee as I would like. Insert sad face. Since I was unsure about their wearability last year when I bought my first pair, I thought I would share three ways to wear OTK boots with you today. They are far more versatile than you might think! Today I paired them with my black jeans, new sleeveless turtleneck sweater, and an old favorite buffalo plaid shirt. I like my sweater vest so much, I wanted another similar piece in black. I love the layering potential. Over or under or alone, this top will be a great piece for the season at only $25.
I am headed to Denver for a work trip tomorrow, and I am so excited. I’ve never been to Denver. Plus, I get to meet Leah from Eat Pray Wear Love and Paige and Hailey from The Middle Closet. I love how this blogging community has become real friends of mine, and it is so fun to meet them in real life!

When it comes to wearing OTK boots with a dress or skirt, I wanted to highlight both hemlines. Midi or mini, OTK boots pair well with both lengths. I just like to make sure my midi hem covers the top of my boots.
