Sweet Suede

black over the knee boots DSWFor around two years I (along with everyone else, I’m sure) have been lusting after the Stuart Weitzman Lowland Boots (and the Highland Boots, and the Nudist Heel, and about every other pair of shoes he creates), but my current finances prohibit me from purchasing them LOL.Casual outfit with suede skirt and over the knee bootsexpress cognac suede skirt how to wear suede skirt with Over the knee bootsI’ve seen over the knee boots on so many people, and every time my heart would ache that I didn’t own a pair. Well, that aching has stopped for now because I’ve finally found a similar pair and for the most unbelievable price ever.

I’ve seen tons of replicas, but on a recent trip to DSW this pair especially caught my eye – but more importantly – the only $70 price tag! I was super nervous that over the knee boots wouldn’t look good on me, but I absolutely love them! In the week since I bought them, I’ve already worn them three times!black OTK bootsAnother piece that’s been on my radar is a cognac suede skirt. I actually purchased this one from Express over the holidays, but the weather is just now permitting me to wear it. And you guys, it’s the best!

I love things that are unique, and instead of buying just an A-line skirt, I went for the ties and split. big blue statement earrings happiness boutiquecognac suede skirt with black over the knee boots DSWI have so many ideas as to how to wear the skirt in the spring (I’m thinking pretty white blouse, with these cognac sandals), and these over the knee boots will probably never leave my feet for the next few weeks.faux suede skirt black over the knee boots how to wear over the knee bootsThere’s seriously nothing better than buying pieces you know you’ll get so much wear out of!
