The Secrets Under Knee High Boots

When I spotted this pair of knee high boots from last year sitting towards the back of my wardrobe, I thought it was about time I gave styling them a go for the first time this season.

Can you believe this is the first time I wear knee high boots this winter season?! Last winter I was all over them, layering them over jeans and using them to keep my legs warm whilst wearing jumper dresses but this year I haven't been drawn to them, no idea why. I'm guessing it was a phase as when I spotted this pair towards the back of my wardrobe I thought it was about time I gave styling them a go this season. I must admit that I struggle when it comes to knee high boots, I wouldn't say I have the thinnest legs nor the widest but when it comes to finding a pair of knee high boots on the high street that have a snug fit around my thighs I've struggled. These thigh highs are from Public Desire at a mere £39.99, they're really inexpensive looking at the grand scale of things but truth be told, they don't fit me amazingly well (it doesn't help that I have big size 7 feet either!)

Knee high boot woes aside, I still love experimenting with new ways of styling these and I've found that wearing some knee high socks underneath, or when paired with jeans, the boots have a much better fit and although they look baggy, they've never fallen down my leg.

I spend every dreary morning longing for spring and as tradition dictates, I have my floral pieces at the ready. I've been finding so much inspiration in street style recently and one thing that has really caught my eye has been midi dresses layered under biker jackets so naturally, I did exactly that. I went for a faux leather jacket from River Island (one of my 2016 fashion favourites) layered over my floral midi dress from New Look for ultimate city-girl-chic vibes. Forget the glamorous life you may think us bloggers lead, the real reason I picked out my knee high boots was to hide my unshaved legs: winter = no shaving.
