    I remember those boots! And I also remember you making me fall in love with them, and being really bummed out that they didn't have big foot size 11 by the time I decided to make the splurge lol. A splurge is totally worth it though if you get years and years out of them 🙂 Great color combo! ~Ashley

    I'm sure you've shared this before, but can I ask how tall you are? I love the look of over the knee boots but I don't have long legs (and am definitely not tall) so I never feel sure that I'd be able to pull them off. On the Daily Express

      I'm 5'6. Most of the OTK boots are just right above the knee, so most people can pull them off IMHO 🙂

    I remember when you first showed off those boots! It inspired me to track down a pair for myself. I still love them! Over the knee boots are so popular this season. I'd love to see even more ideas incorporating them. I never get tired of seeing them. 🙂
