Zara Overcoat & Ivanka Trump Over The Knee Boots

Hi everyone ^_^
Last week the temperature dropped here in Texas (for like two minutes,) so this was an easy and comfortable outfit suitable for the upper 50's. The coat is old. I purchased it over 3 years ago from Zara; but what I really want to talk about are, these boots!! I recently bought these Ivanka Trump over-the-knee boots from Nordstrom during a sale. If you are petite (or what I call, a "fun-size" at 5'2) like me, it is really difficult to find the traditional 'over the knee' boots, as they inadvertently go up to your mid thigh. These boots are simply ideal for petites as they go just a bit past your knee, and they are super soft and comfy.

I also love that the heel is only 1 1/4" so you can walk on them all day long without pain. I tried on the 'Lowland' boots from Stuart Weitzman (to see what all the hype is about,) and unfortunately they did not look good on me. Since their boot shaft is 23 1/2" compared to the Ivanka, which has a considerably shorter shaft at 19 1/2". The effect was that it shortened my legs, instead of giving them that mile-long look I was after.  However I must say that the boot itself was silky-soft, and by all means if you have mile-long legs, go for it!

Although I was initially disappointed at not bringing home the famous OTK Stuart Weitzman closet staple, it took just one wear and these grey suede boots turned me into a believer, (BTW my husband actually pushed me to get them.) For me, it is not all about brand names, if something does not look good on me, I do not care what brand it is--I will not buy them. Hey, this is not a blacklist moment ladies, I might try other heels from Stuart Weitzman in the future, as people always say; you never know unless you try! ;)


  1. Love this outfit! Simple and chic, indeed!
