Styling OTK boots.









Top: Sears {similar} // Jeggings: American Eagle Outfitters // Boots: Charlotte Russe {currently $25!} // Sunglasses: LOFT // Purse: Vintage Chanel {similar and much cheaper version here!} // Earrings: {old} // Necklace: c/o Maverick Hill // Bracelets: c/o Urban Peach Boutique // Lips: Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss in Nude Brown 



      I'm so excited to be styling my one of my favorite Black Friday bargains on the blog today! I had been on the hunt for a great pair of over-the-knee boots for quite some time. I was getting ready to shell out some big bucks and spend a lot of money to buy a pair from a department store, but then I stuck absolute gold with this pair from Charlotte Russe! They were marked down to an incredible $20 for Black Friday (and they're currently listed for $25 online!). They are the exact color and style that I was in the market for- I couldn't believe my luck! Sometimes it literally does "pay off" to hold off on making a large fashion purchase right away, and to try and find a cheaper alternative.

     I am all for splurging on shoes if it's a pair that you know you will wear almost daily. For example, nice summer sandals, or a quality pair of riding or snow boots (depending on the climate that you live in!). But for a more fun boot to just wear for dressier situations, I'm so glad that I went for the better deal! 

     I styled my OTK boots with my favorite leggings and a simple pink top. I wanted to let the boots really stand out and make their own statement! How would you style OTK boots? They are such the rage for this season and I love seeing how other bloggers are wearing theirs! 


     The pictures for this blog post were taken by my Charlotte blogger bestie Morgan from How 2 Wear It! I also took some outfit pictures for her that afternoon, and her post for that outfit can be found here!  I love this spot that we did pictures at- isn't the Christmas tree in the background so festive?! Stay tuned for more photos on the blog this week from this fun location!

  2. Wow, what a great deal!
    This outfit is fab on you.
    I asked for some for Christmas (they are around 150 -- not super cheap but not as expensive as most) so hopefully I'll have some soon.

  8. I've really been wanting to try OTK boots, but I wasn't sure how to do so. I think getting a pair in brown like you did would be best to style...I just love how you did it with that cute collared top.

  11. I totally agree that there are certain items to splurge on and certain items to save on. I try to save on pieces I'll only wear every so often or super trendy items. I splurge on pieces I see as an investment or know I'll want to wear season after season. Your boots were such a steal and they look gorgeous on you!
