I have alwayssss loved over the knee boots…however, only on other people.
I must have tried over 5 pairs this past year and not kept any, apart from one pair that I’ve kept and never worn.
I’ve always felt they make me look a bit ‘Robin Hood’ if that makes sense? However recently I’ve been trying new things and thought I had better give it another go, what’s the worst that can happen?
Now let me tell you, I searched for weeks to find the right pair, and when ASOS had 30% of their own brand lines I thought f*ck it, these are coming home with me.
Looking at them out of the box I was 90% sure that I didn’t like them, and was ready to send them straight back without trying on. But after seeing various Instagram posts of people looking fab in them (always my downfall) I tried them on.
The first thing I noticed was how soft they were, they fit well and it felt like I wasn’t wearing anything at all, unlike other long boots I’ve tried. They were easy to get on and off and free movement of my knees was possible; to verify this, a squat test was completed…
Then came the challenge of finding things I already owned to go with them, I pretty much tried them on with every item I own as I wasn’t sure whether id like them best with jeans or just a skirt or dress. (Who doesn’t love a bit of outfit exercise!! No need for the gym this week).
Since this I have actually worn these boots out and loved them. They kept my legs extra warm, and I felt super cute.
Although beware, there isn’t much grip on these boots and I almost slipped and broke my neck…
…Slipping aside, no regrets on losing my over the knee boots virginity… YAY!!

Just one final thought that’s been bothering me…
In regards to visiting peoples houses, how do you guys manage? Am I supposed to take them off and just go bare legs to the wind?? Cos shaving and tanning aren’t on my itinerary this winter?? So far I’ve just worn them outside, so advice is deffo needed!
