Over-the-knee boots! oh my!

i think of these boots that julia roberts wore in pretty woman when i hear over-the-knee boots. but they have since gotten a little more tame. i think.

i think my obsession with all things gossip girl is obvious. and i know i’m a little late into the craze, but i loved serena’s grey suede over-the-knee boot that she wore in the third episode of the first season with her school uniform. they were beautiful and i found out that they were the chinese laundry boots that are oh so affordable.

not only are they affordable online($98.25 on zappos.com), i found a few pairs in grey and brown at winners for $69.99CDN! unfortunately, they were a half size too big for me. but up for grabs at winners was three pairs: 8 and 8.5  in grey, and 9 in brown. i had trouble putting them down because they were just too pretty and i almost wanted to buy them even though they were too big. in the end, i had to put them down. i did manage however, to wake up early enough to catch a candela nyc sale online and bought these:

the last pair was in my size and it was like fate. i just can’t resist a good sale. i can’t wait for them to come to me in the mail in 10-14 business days! They are a little less easy to dirty and a little more practical for the rainy city i live in. i’m not quite sure what to wear them with yet but i’m thinking shorts with tights and a blouse. or maybe those flannel shirts that seems to be pooping up everywhere. i’m not sure what to think of those either.

i would never wear them the way mary kate and lindsay are wearing them but urban outfitters has a few cute ones that i may have to pop in and try on. i’m not sure if this is a staying trend it certainly looks cozy. the ones below are available at urbanoutfitters.com 🙂
