There’s something about silk that makes you feels fancy af. When I slipped into this little black number, I felt like a ribbon twirler.  I was ready to go for gold as every movement caught a bit of air and the sleeves went dancing. And though, I was nervous about the 100% silk label, I made it away somewhat stain free—who can tell anyway since I’m in all black? 😉

OTK Boots For Petite

When the over-the-knee boot trend emerged I was totally on the fence. I thought they’d make my legs look big and my 5’2″ frame appear even shorter. Like most trends, I finally gave in. I started with an inexpensive pair, which was fine until I started to hate them—they were stiff and impossible to walk in. After a bit of research, I invested in the Stuart Weitzman Alllegs Boots. The stretchy shaft sucks everything in and the 3.25″ heel makes them walkable. Since I was self conscious of looking squat, I opted against the flat Lowlands. Unfortunately—like other OTK styles—I find myself pulling them up throughout the day. Read on for the rest of my pros and cons:

Stuart Weitzman Alllegs Boots Review

Pros

  • 3.25″ heel is totally walkable
  • The ultra-stretch material, stays put with little bunching
  • Works with skinny jeans or bare legs
  • Great quality—still in good shape after 2 years
  • True to size 

Cons

  • Slides down at the thigh
  • 27″ shaft may be too tall for some. Try the Highlands for a shorter option.
  • The ultra-stretch material is tight (on my legs), so thicker denim doesn’t always work
  • The ties at the thigh come undone easily

 

For my one of my first investment pieces, I’m really happy with my purchase. If you’re anything like me, don’t shy away for OTK boots if your petite.

I picked up these boots and sweater from the Madewell sale (extra 30% off with code: BIGSALE). Fortunately, everything at Madewell pairs well together, making my day easier because I don’t have to think about my outfit when I’m late for work. I’m a sucker for bell-sleeves, but I’ll admit that sweeping up crumbs and spills with them is a bummer. I mean bell-sleeves? More like mop-sleeves.
