Over-the-Knee Boots

Target tunic sweater  (on clearance for $20) / Paige denim coated pants / Sam Edelman OTK boots / Dogeared necklace (one of my favorite things) / Baublebar statement necklace (on sale for $32 - limited time) / Sole Society hat (40% off) / Urban Outfitters rings

So it seems like the days are getting warmer here in LA. Last Sunday, during the Super Bowl, was probably the first time I wore shorts in the winter. It was nice to get a little taste of spring in the middle of winter and get a break in between freezing temperatures.
I still welcome the cold weather especially on the days where the temperature dips down to the low 50s. And like I mentioned in my previous post, I love it even more when it rains.
Ever since I got these Sam Edelman 'Kayla' boots during Black Friday, I reached out for these boots whenever I could. I've always had my eye on these Stuart Weitzman boots, but these Sam Edelman were the closest dupe I could get for now while I save up for the Stuart Weitzman :). They're very similar in looks, but the Sam Edelman are obviously a fraction of the price.

Over-the-knee high boots were on my wish list for awhile because I liked the idea of wearing dresses in the winter and pairing them with OTK boots. Not only they look stylish, but they keep your legs nice and warm too. If you wear them with pants (like I did on this post), it adds an extra layer of warmth especially when your pants are quite thin. These boots will help block out the wind chills from going through your pants.
Also, I feel that OTK boots also instantly dresses up an outfit. I prefer suede material when it comes to OTK boots just because it looks more luxe compared to a faux leather/leather version. Faux leather/leather OTK boots give me a bit of a dominatrix feel for some reason. It's just a personal preference, and I probably haven't really tried styling a leather OTK with the things that I have in my closet. I've learned never say never when it comes to anything in life.
Anyway, over the weekend, I decided to finally go through my closet and just rid of any pieces that I haven't worn and probably will not wear anymore. Ever since I started reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, I've had this urge and motivation to just go through my closet and only keep the things I want to keep. So far, I've successfully whittled my closet and drawers to pieces that I'm only going to wear. I'll keep you updated as I go a long with this mission.
