Fall has been my favorite season since I moved to New England from California more than 7 years ago. I love it for its cool air and vibrant colors. Not to mention that there are many holidays lined up all the way to the end of the year. Also I finally get to sit in the sun and not have some severe allergy reactions coming at me. This year I have a new reason to love this season: the endless outfit combinations. Just really love the layering!
I took the challenge to put together an outfit this weekend that allowed me to wear over the knee boots. All you petite framed gals would know what a challenge it is to find one that will fit your thin legs. Most of the boots are made for regular sized women, which in the US unfortunately means that we are all sized out. I have heard from a friend of mine that when she went to France 10 years ago, she couldn't find any long boots that will zip up on her. She ended up getting a pair that was made of stretchy materials. Maybe skinny girls will have better luck finding boots that fit in Europe? This was 10 years ago. According to my dear husband, Americans since fought the battle by introducing McDonald's to Europe. Ha.
I bought these boots last year after reading the reviews that they were too tight and too short for most people. I jumped onto the opportunity and snatched myself a pair. And guess what? They were right. It was made for us petites.
The boots can also be folded over and worn like regular tall boots.
