Over the Knee Boots

I call these over the knee boots my "poor man's 5050s."  They look quite similar to the beautiful but expensive Stuart Weitzman style, but at approximately one fourth the cost.  I purchased this pair of Louise et Cie (one of the Vince Camuto brands) boots during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, and have been wearing them pretty much nonstop this fall.  The basically flat heel (one inch) is comfortable for all day wear, and the stretchy side panels help to hug the leg for the perfect fit.  This exact style is still available online at Nordstrom.com, and currently priced at 25% off (almost the same as I paid earlier this summer).  For today's outfit, I paired these boots with moto jeans, a printed blouse, a leather sleeved blazer, simple black clutch, and gold jewelry for a going out lookI've also worn this look to the office by swapping the moto jeans for a different pair of tan colored skinnies.  These photos were taken at the University of Washington, my alma mater.  Being on campus always brings back good memories, and I love that there are so many photogenic spots like the fountain in this first photo A good friend of mine has been helping me step up my photo game with his professional work - let me know what you think!
