OTK Boots x Ruffled-Sleeve Sweater


Last week, I shared a holiday-inspired outfit revolving around a classic red lip and the cutest ruched-sleeve blouse (if you missed that post, you can find it here). This week, I want to share a dressier look for the holidays that you can recreate from pieces you already own. I like to think of this outfit as basic but better. Basic, because everyone has (or should have) a black skirt, black boots, and a white top but better because each piece has it’s own charm.

I received this ruffled-sleeve sweater a few weeks ago and it’s one of those tops that looks cute with everything! (Clearly, I have a thing for statement sleeves lately and if that’s wrong, I don’t want to be right.) This top is so festive and chic and I love that the sleeves make it different from your average ivory sweater. I wanted to pair it with some texture so I chose this $30 faux leather skirt from Zara. I love the fit and who doesn’t love a skirt with pockets?

Given that my skirt was leather, I opted for a pair of suede over-the-knee boots. For a while, I was on the fence about them because I envisioned myself channeling Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman vibes. I’m so happy that I finally caved because OTK boots are a great way to elevate any outfit. Mine are currently on sale for under $65 and are great $800 designer dupes! I bought them in the natural color as well because #soniceIboughtthemtwice.  Did I mention that they also keep your legs warm and hide that post-summer paleness? Double yes.
