Last year, you wouldn't have caught me dead in the office with over-the-knee boots and a skirt hitting right at the top of the boot: as you know I'm quite short, so that means the skirt can be categorised as mini, and I don't usually do mini, do I? But, these days I'm feeling confident, I've decided to like myself as I am, short legs and curves and all. So here I am, with over-the-knee boots and a slightly shorter than usual skirt! Of course this is a look for days with no client meetings, don't worry I'm still very mindful of dressing appropriately for my profession!
Looking at the dark colours of this outfit I wonder if it's perhaps a bit early in the year, especially considering I'll have a good five months of Winter weather to dress warmly for, but I couldn't wait one week more. I love wearing boots. For me, it's almost like wearing trousers with a skirt, I feel so much less exposed than with pumps!
These boots are called Highland, they are so comfortable with their medium heel and almond toe. I love wearing them. In my view they are far more elegant than the 5050 which has too square a toe for my liking.
I covered up lightly, with a ribbed cashmere mix top and my very old but very loved leather jacket with chain trim. All in it felt like a perfect outfit for what is becoming quite a chilly weather after all...
