Dress: French Connection (last year)
Boots: Nine West Outlet (similar)
Tights: Hue via Marshalls Link!
I've always had a really hard time finding boots that fit, I have pretty muscular calves and I find most boots are made for skinny legged people. In the past I mostly had to wear "slouchy" boots or Uggs (gasp!). It was my mission over the past two years to try and find black and brown boots that I could wear to work and with skinny jeans. Last year I found the boots I'm wearing above at Nine West Outlet. The have a leather front but a stretchy back. They are super comfortable and easy to slide on, and since they have a leather front I still feel that they look dressy.
This year I began the search for the elusive brown boot and I ended up with two pairs I like (yay!). First I found a pair at Banana, I read the reviews online that said they were really loose so I ordered them online on a whim and they fit. I had also really been wanting to invest in a pair of Frye boots. I found some this year they were making in extended calf versions. I ordered online and again, success!
Moral of the story: if you have trouble with boots try a stretchy back, reading reviews online or search for boots that come in extended calf sizes. Also, don't get discouraged. I have tried on MANY boots to find the perfect ones!
