Gray OTK Boots - 2 Casual Ways.

This is the third Winter I have had/am wearing these Taupe-ish/Gray Over-the-Knee Boots. Over the last couple of weeks, for some casual mid-week daily stuff, I wore them to run errands, pick up Vivian from daycare, etc. Neither of these are work Outfits, just "Mom-on-the-go" type of Outfits. Coincidentally, both times I paired these OTK Boots with Denim (Chambray Shirt for the first outfit + Acid-wash Jeans for the second outfit). I also, wore my Black Turtleneck both times and even carried the same Red+White Purse. Well that happens, since I am all about remixing my closet. Let's look at each outfit in more detailing.
I hadn't worn this Mini Skirt from E.L.S. in all the months I have had it (since early Summer). It is definitely a Light, Summery material but with some Thick Gray Tights creating a Monochrome effect with the OTK Boots, it worked. The Mini looks more modest this way, also. I layered my Anchor-Print Chambray over my Black Turtleneck and added my Lariat, Silver Chain+Turquoise Necklace and some Red Lipstick.
Chambray Shirt w/ tiny White Anchors: The Limited (similar by Land's End), (sleeveless option, love this, best deal).
Black, Thin Jersey-Stretch, Long-Sleeve Turtleneck: Express (very similar by Ralph Lauren, love this), (very similar), (long-sleeve, ribbed option by VS, best deal, love this).
Long Silver-tone Necklace w/ Silver Circles & Big Turquoise Stones: A Local Boutique. (New) (similar, love this), (gorgeous option by Kendra Scott), (similar long beaded necklace, best deal).
Red+White, Envelope-shaped Cross-body Bag: A Local Accessories Boutique (New) (similar, best deal), (similar, red + tan, great deal), (similar, Kate Spade option, on sale, love this).
Dark Gray, Tweed, Thick Tights: Express (very similar by Wolford, Splurge), (similar by DKNY, best deal, love these).
Taupe-Charcoal, Over-the-Knee Boots: Purchased in Tirana (very similar by Nine West, on sale, love these), (similar, best deal), (similar in Cognac, love these).

For this second, even more casual outfit I wore my Acid-Wash Jeans with my Dark Red Cardigan over the Black Turtleneck. I kept warm with my Off-White Puffer Vest and my Pink Neon-Striped Scarf by Gap (which I love). And like I mentioned yesterday, more Red, Black and Blue in these outfits. What do you think? Do you own a pair of OTK Boots yet? I want some simple, dressy Black ones, hopefully in Real Leather.
Dark Red 3/4-Sleeve Cardigan w/ Silver Disco-ball Buttons: White House Black Market (very similar by J. Crew), (similar V-neck option, by J.Crew, on sale, love this), (similar, best deal).
Black, Thin Jersey-Stretch, Long-Sleeve Turtleneck: Express (very similar by Ralph Lauren, love this), (very similar), (long-sleeve, ribbed option by VS, best deal, love this).
Red+White, Envelope-shaped Cross-body Bag: A Local Accessories Boutique (New) (similar, best deal), (similar, red + tan, great deal), (similar, Kate Spade option, on sale, love this).
Taupe-Charcoal, Over-the-Knee Boots: Purchased in Tirana (very similar by Nine West, on sale, love these), (similar, best deal), (similar in Cognac, love these).

  14. Both of these outfits are so perfect for winter. At first I thought your chambray shirt had polka dots and was similar to mine, but I see there are anchors. I have been wanting a white puffer, love it with the pink. I need a pair of grey boots, too... just got some grey skinnies and love them!
