OVER THE KNEE......
......but not thigh-high!
Over-The-Knee Leather Boots Bertie at House of Fraser
Patterned Leggings Ted Baker at House of Fraser
Wool Floppy Hat Zara
Wool Jumper Mango
It won’t be long before these Bertie over-the-knee boots go into closet storage for SS/13, so I am getting all the wear out of them I can, in view of the fact I've hardy worn them as they are a recent purchase. I bought them about three weeks ago from House of Fraser so no doubt they are probably in the sale now! Please don’t tell me if they are – thanks!
My wardrobe is pretty well stocked of plain black Topshop leggings – so versatile – so these Ted Baker patterned leggings made quite a refreshing change for me; I ummed and ahhed for ages about them as I thought they may be a little ‘loud’ for me and my thighs, but compared to the bright prints in the shops at the moment I think these are quite subtle? I’m wearing them with my long wool jumper – a mid to long length top being a must when wearing leggings, however pert and tight your butt looks - from Mango, which admittedly doesn't look like anything special from the front, but I hope you agree the back detailing adds a bit of interest to an otherwise uninspiring garment.
I believe hats always add interest to an outfit; you may have noticed from previous posts that I do have a penchant for head-wear accessories. This wool floppy hat from Zara does everything I need it to do: 1) keep the warmth in 2) prevent unintentional frizz 3) solve a bad hair day 4) attract compliments.
What have you bought recently? Do you own any over-the-knee boots?
