For the month of December, I challenged myself to restyle some of my favorite wardrobe pieces. Basically, I didn’t want to purchase new clothes and I thought it would be fun. Confession, I bought these boots. I love boots. I’ve loved boots since about 2004. I’m not going to say I knew how to style them properly all along, but I loved them. It was instant love when I spotted these. Internally, I was screaming – Get on my feet! Instantly, I thought about how I was going to restyle some of my favorite items with them.
I often want to create looks that have some edge or a touch of vintage to them. I paired these pieces together with the vision of a creating an edgy look. Adding a moto jacket is a great way to give a dress a bit of edge. I’ve worn this dress before. and this jacket is also a favorite that has been in my closet for a very long time.
These boots look awesome with a ton of my dresses. I like to pair OTK boots with dresses because it’s a great way to extend and lean out my legs. Sometimes OTK boots and jeans accent the wrong areas of my pear shaped figure. I like how the length of the dress and the height of the boot allowed for some leg to show, visually leaned my legs, and allowed the boots to stand out. I’ll be pairing these boots with dresses again in the future for sure.
