Test driving the "new winter standard" - wearing Tibi sweater, Citizens Rocket, Stuart Weitzman Highland boots

Way back in August, I impulsively purchased a pair of beautiful suede Stuart Weitzman's over-the-knee boots. They have turned out to be the best investment piece of the season (as far as footwear is concerned). When we slide into the New Year & the coldest months of the year, I wear nothing but sweaters & jeans day after day after day. It's the only outfit choice that seems to keep my body temp from dipping. Although I'm warm & comfortable, it gets a little old. My new boots are so beautiful & comfortable, I want to wear these boots as much as possible, but I have only worn them with skirts & dresses. One morning I picked out my cozy, oversized Tibi sweater from a few seasons back & a great pair of Citizens high rise skinnnies. I slipped on my beautiful over-the-boots and voila! My boring winter uniform was instantly elevated to a whole other level. I was warm, cozy, comfortable, but the boots amped up the sex appeal of the outfit. With 6 different pairs of over-the-knee boots in my closet (I know, I was dumbfounded, too), I decided this was going to be my season of the over-the-knee boots.

These were my oldest pair of OTK boots worn with Citizens Rockets & Autumn Cashmere

I encourage everyone to give this a try if they have a pair or two that have been collecting dust, or go for the investment boots, or maybe you have a huge selection of scarves that you want to showcase. We all need something to warm up this frigid weather.

Not quite my winter standard, but I just love this combo! Tibi sweater, Nicole Miller skirt & Brian Atwood OTK boots
