I am seriously obsessed with boots. Living in So Cal, where the weather is warm most of the year, I don’t get to wear them as much as I’d like…but when winter rolls around I pretty much ignore all my other shoes. Our coldest months tend to be January and February, so now is my time to make the most of it. Being short, I own a lot of ankle boots (or booties) that fit more like shoes and don’t cut my leg in an awkward place. I do struggle more with mid-calf styles. However, I absolutely LOVE over-the-knee boots. My obsession with OTK boots began several years back, when they first started trending really hard. I loved the badass vibe they evoked, but wasn’t so sure that they’d work for me given my height. Shopping online, I spotted a pair from Report that looked totally rock-and-roll (and way more expensive than they actually were), so I took the risk and ordered them. It was probably one of the best purchases I ever made, as I couldn’t love those boots more (pictured below). I even wore them when I competed on air for the title of Macy’s Next Style Star!
