Over the Knee Boots

Posted on: October 7, 2015

If you had asked me If’ I’d Ever Wear 

Over the Knee Boots  a few year Ago, 

I’d have answered with a Emphatic Negative Response.

That’s Why One Should Never , Say Never!  

I stand by my initial reaction to the idea of over the knee boots because 

years ago, they didn’t come in this riding boot style, but were more the hooker heeled versions.  

This is a tale of being willing to give things a try, because even this flat version didn’t appeal to me, out of fear that it wouldn’t work for my 5 feet 3 inch height challenge.

I do think these work for a few reasons. 

The first would be that I am blessed as a petite woman to have

my mother’s  Campbell family genetic long legs. 

I may be petite , but I can never wear petite length pants.  

The other reason these work for me is that they barely come to the top of my knee. 

Their are varieties I’ve seen that are not just over the knee, but thigh highs.  

Dabbling in this boot style, I opted for this pair from Chinese Laundry

I loved the opportunity, to wear my orange hoop earrings that my daugter gave me. 

I also love any chance to wear Orange lipstick.

I had to take the opporunity to dress like Fall today

because our temperatures were in the low 70’s now, but 

going back up to 80 tomorrow.  

Dear Readers, Have you tried something you didn’t think would work for you and 

were pleaseantly surprised?  

Gratitude

I am grateful that my husband had a successful day today and some fun along the way.  

I am grateful that I trusted my instincts on my walk to the grocery store. I heard a woman on the phone almost in tears saying she was giving in and just wanted to go knock on her father’s door and admit she need help because she couldn’t take another night in the shelter.  She went on to say she needed help with bus fare but no one was willing to help her.  I walked past her into the store, took out $3 and walked outside and handed it to her. She gasped into the phone and said , “OH My, someone just gave me the bus fare, I can do it now!” I was walking away as she was proclaiming , “Bless You, Thank you so much”  One  wonders if the truth is being told in these circumstances , but when I came out of the store she was gone and I saw her at the BLVD  bus stop, I was glad I trusted my instincts. 

I am grateful that my college son who texts me a lot , actually called to talk to me tonight. He is troubled about the college shooting and asking the same question my oldest asked, ” What if you answered that you were Spiritual not Religious? ” How would the shooter have reacted?  I know so many college students have to be wondering what would have happened if they had been in that room.  so sad!

I loved your gratitude post today. I mean I usually do but really loved this one 🙂

Also, thank you for the boot shots! I was recently in DSW and asked a friend, “Is it possible for otk boots to not be stripper boots?” and she replied, no. But now I see that it IS! LOL!!!

I really like those and can picture them with tights and knit dresses for fall. Very cute.

Thank you! Yes, I want to try them with dresses and tights. Hope you explore them.
