Over the knee boots...appropriate??

Absolutely (depending on the boot). In the professional workplace? Absolutely not. Never, ever, ever is it okay. Remember I'm speaking in a corporate, professional environment here...not at a fashion magazine, MTV, the Bunny Ranch in Vegas, etc.

Here are some of my fav options for both the professional days as well as casual Fridays...

I personally am a fan of heeled boots for the office, but completely understand how uncomfortable they are, which is why I included some flats. These were some good options that were still classic, sleek, and professional. With the exception of the "casual Friday" rugged boots I threw in here. I'm a huge fan of these kind of boots so I can't help but show some of my favs...

*Just an FYI, I found these boots on Piperlime because they do free shipping and returns, and I find their site easy to navigate. The con of shopping there? The 30-day time limit on returns. I love Zappos for this reason too, but find their site more difficult to get around. The pro of Zappos? 365-day returns. The best of all??? Nordstrom. Free shipping and returns and no time limit! You pay for the convenience in cost though:) 

Hope you have a fabulous Monday!

  1. I found you through Bon! I become obsessed with boots in the winter, unfortunately my job doesn't allow me to wear them so I have a hard time excusing buying as many pairs as I want!

  2. I'm kind of really jealous that you get casual Fridays... oh, and these boots are adorable - my favorite are the first 2 on the top row.

    1. Oh, that's such a bummer you don't get casual Fridays! I don't get them every Friday, depending on whether I have to meet with clients or not. But it is fun to have a day to funk it up a little! :)

  3. Okay, I finally got into the trend of boots this year (besides the slightly-higher-than-my-ankle ones I've worn for years with dress slacks), and my issue is, every pair of knee-high boots I have EVER tried on look ridiculous (to me) because I have really slender legs. Okay, fine. Skinny. I have skinny legs. My calf, like, SWIMS in the circumference of the boot. Boo! Maybe you have an idea. Boot socks don't go with all of them, do they?

    Anyway, the real reason I came here was to tell you . . . I nominated you for a Liebster! Head on over to my blog here, and check it out!

    1. Hi Gayle! Thanks SO MUCH! I'll have to get over and check it out! :) Also, thanks for stopping by!

      I'm not a huge fan of boot socks for the work place...on casual days? Absolutely! Maybe try a stretch boot instead of a zipper? Or maybe find ones with a 13" or less circumference! I have the same problem, but the other way. I need the 15" circumference...anything less just is NOT cute on me.

      Good luck girly!

  5. OTK certainly looks inappropriate at work but other than that its an go through footwear's. When you are not sure what to wear you can wear them.
    What u think ?

  6. I completely agree withyou! I had an old coworker who wore over the knee black boots with leggings and a button up shirt all unbuttoned ALL the time. It drove me nuts. It is so incredibly important to be professional. In dress and demeanor.
