The Search for Over The Knee Boots

Just like the good little blogger that I am, I fell completely in love with this season's Stuart Weitzman Highland Over the Knee Boots and the Joie Jemina Boots. And just like most females, I scoffed at the price tag. So, I set out to search for the perfectly affordable over the knee boots with a few necessary features: a heel height within reason, black suede fabric, a tailored fit, and a subtle tie-back or elastic hem to reduce the unflattering flapping that can sometimes happen with a less expensive OTK style. I found my perfect fit with the Catherine Malandrino version at Nordstrom Rack. Currently, they're sold out, but I'd also recommend the Carlos by Carlos Santana Galileo Boots or the Sam Edelman Amber Boots. Where did you find your perfect over the knee boots?

BRIWOK + The Line by K

There's something to be said for dynamic pieces with bang for your buck. The Briwok Desert Highway Bodychain is my new favorite bauble. With drop-back wolf tooth detailing, it's effortless with a simple boyfriend blazer and will usher perfectly into bikini season. Antique brass styles perfectly with my regular mix of Consider the Wldflwrs necklaces: The Forget-Me-Not and The Block. Briwok has such a variety of interesting pieces with unexpected placement and unique details. I always get excited to find a new company producing inspiring handmade goods.

My other latest obsession? Anything from favorite fantasy blogger Karla Deras' new clothing line...The Line by K. The Carmen Pants are high-waisted with an exaggerated flared silhouette. I've been pairing them with chunky cropped knits and American Apparel lace bodysuits. The Line by K keeps releasing beautiful collections, one after another. So in love.
