From $940 to $290 — I mean, this is pretty obvious outfit math, right? I was actually inspired to put this post together because the Club Monaco look — which I love — was a repeating outfit for me last year. You see, last fall, I found these suede OTK boots from Michael Kors, and pulled the trigger on them when they went on sale. To be honest, I wasn’t even sure how often I’d wear them, as they felt like a departure from the other types of tall boots in my closet. I just knew I loved the way they looked! But actually, they ended up being my go-to boot last winter. I really can’t emphasize how lovely they looked with sweater dresses, leggings/tunics, and even jeans.
This outfit reminded me of that — and made me excited for the moment I can pull those puppies back out — so I figured I’d spread the gospel. Suede OTK boots with a sweater dress: good. And the even better news is, you don’t need to spend half a grand or more on the boots to recreate the look for yourself! Sadly, the MK Regina boots look different this year (bring back the 2014 version, please!), but I found these Steve Madden’s for $150. Not bad!
Have you indulged in the thigh high or over-the-knee boot look yet? I have suede ones and regular leather, and to be honest, suede is my preference!
