Penny Lane

Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots

Still chuffed to be in boots that are comfortable and look half decent.   Not the easiest combination.

Why is it so hard? Read on for more and for damn good lookalikes!

Boots: Stuart Weitzman.  Try Steve Madden, Choies (identical!!!) or  a block heel from Nine West. Coat: Vintage found at Housing Works. Similar from Topshop or H&M minus the collar,  Dress: Local flea.  Belt: Vintage. FreePeople does good vintage styles.

How many of you have looked for the right over the knee boots for years?  That was me.  Que violins:  I avoided these Lowlands because there’s enough places right that do similars? After several trial and errors I caved last Autumn on them because nothing stuck to the leg properly (read: that awkward low calf cut that bulges out too low on the leg). Also they were always knee length not over and I rationalized that I could wear these for years to come. This is year two.

If you’re semi considering I say try them on.  They’re sort of like a long sock with a low heel attached.   More friendly wallet options include Vince, Choies (wow), Forever21 or Asos.    The struggle is real so let me know if you find.

Wore them with a Penny Lane coat.  Since Kate Hudson’s character in that film, no other name works.

    The color of the boots is mind blowing!!

    • Karen Blanchard says:

      Ugh that colour!!! I know!!! Black is the usual route and would’ve worked but I liked having navy

    • Karen Blanchard says:

      Thank you! They suit everyone I’ve noticed who owns them!

      • Soulofashopper says:

        Really? I have short chubby legs… don’t think they will suit me, but it’s nice to see people like you who can sport them, and quite gracefully too!

        • Karen Blanchard says:

          Have you tried some on? suede or leather?

          • Soulofashopper says:

    Yes, I have had the same issues with over the knee boots in the past. Thanks for the tip on these. You look so chic and gorgeous in this look. Absolutely stunning. I have really been enjoying your fall looks this month. They are so stylish and unique. I like the way you think outside of the box when it comes to fashion, but always make it look dope. Also, your smile is beautiful by the way. Look forward to more great posts… Have a lovely week.

    I have similar vintage coat and I was going to re-do the collar to make it look more modern, but you have me thinking maybe not! Great look!

    • Karen Blanchard says:

      ooooh keep!! keep!!! unless you hate wearing it on YOU.
