With cooler weather coming our way soon, I decided to try out over the knee riding boots. And yes, it may be 80 here in Maryland today but I know better. These bright warm days are a wonderful way for us to all enjoy fall before winter sneaks up on us. I’ve got my eye on you Mr. Winter. And I will be prepared with awesome boots.
I really like the over the knee boot style but last year struggled with what to wear them with that worked for my everyday life. Sure an awesome heeled pair would be great for the occasional night out, but more often than not I’m taking a more casual approach to my everyday looks. This flat riding heel is perfect! It totally works with my favorite leggings/tunic combo.
These over the knee riding boots are the Gee’Wawa for J. Jill Leather and Stretch Boots. I found them really comfortable and very true to size. They should work perfect for anyone who may need a little stretch in the back of their calves.
I’m also wearing a black quilted jacket. I love a quilted jacket, don’t you? They instantly make a look feel pulled together in a casual chic way. They are also a great weight for days when you don’t need a heavy wool coat or parka. I have a navy one that I’ve worn for years so I’m excited to have a fresh update ready to go.
This tunic is the J. Jill Shaker Stitch tunic and is the new dark horse in my closet. I LOVE it! I’ve got so much love that it is currently on sale and I’m trying to decide what other colors to buy. It is really soft and everything about it is spot on. I love the length, the neckline, the 3/4 length sleeves and the slits up the side. Even the slits are perfect in that they don’t go so high you now feel exposed. No tank top layering needed.
This tunic is the perfect work to personal life transition piece. It will also look great with blanket scarves once the temps dip. Snag em’ up ladies while you can.
One last detail about this look. This necklace. Isn’t it lovely?! It’s by Manic Trout and I love the quality and vibe of it all. Effortless jewelry layers are my friend. Their jewelry would make excellent gifts at the holidays.
Are you into over the knee riding boots? What about quilted jackets? Most importantly are you enjoying these final warm fall days as much as I am?
