Since my last post was all about my love for over-the-knee boots, I figured I’d post an OOTD featuring my new favorite pair, the Sam Edelman “Taylan”. I spotted these boots when they were released last fall, and stalked them until they went on sale. Lucky for me, they stuck around in my size and in the color I wanted. Not so lucky however, I ordered them from Nordstrom for $230 (down from $325) and now they’re on sale direct from Sam Edelman for only $118, which I literally can’t believe – at that price they’re a steal (and I’m kind of kicking myself)!!! Anyway, enough about that little bit of misfortune…at least I’ve enjoyed wearing them these past few weeks. I styled this particular look for a work-related lunch meeting in Claremont. Since it’s still coolish here, I decided to go the slouchy sweater dress route. I think this is more of an oversized sweater than an actual dress, but first of all I’m super short, annnnnd they didn’t have an xs, so I bought the small instead with plans to wear it like a dress. As tiny as I am, you can see this look still works for my petite frame. Some people say short girls can’t wear high boots, or long dresses, etc. As a professional stylist, I don’t believe those “don’ts” are so cut and dry. My size is not a barrier to what I can and can’t wear. I believe this is true for women of all shapes, sizes, and ages. It’s more about making fashion work for you, which takes a bit of knowledge, creativity, and of course confidence.

These boots are so amazing! Love all the accessories in this look too.
Thanks Kathrine! Definitely my new favorite boots!!
Well at least you didn’t completely pay full price, I guess. Grr.
OMG Cotrina I know
I so agree: the only limits of personal fashion choice is what looks good and feels good and you look better than good. As usual your combination of clothes and accessories is a work of art!
Thank you Xoxo
