Drop Waist Dress and NO TIGHTS!

I can’t tell you guys how excited I am to post this look today! I bought this dress late last fall with the specific intention of wearing it with a pair of over-the-knee boots (OTK boots) and NO TIGHTS! Ok, so full disclosure, I actually don’t mind wearing tights, I’ve talked about them before on the blog and have posted many-an-#ootd of them. To me, they are the perfect accessory and allow you to get so much more wear out of your clothes, i.e. shorts.

Buut I digress…I’m not here to convince you to wear tights, I’m here to celebrate that I don’t have to wear them anymore! Well at least not for the next 6 months or so…hopefully! If you’re a follower of Style in a Small Town, then you’ve seen me wear OTK boots ALOT! #sorryimnotsorry I absolutely love them, I do. When the trend first came out a couple of years ago, it was one trend that I decided, “Nope, I’m not jumping on this one.” Then the more I saw them and realized how versatile they were, the more they grew on me.

At the end of last season, I took the plunge and purchased my first pair, first seen here, last seen here. I decided to ease myself into it and just went with a basic black pair so that it would go with everything. Then this year, I was all in and added this beautiful neutral gray pair into the mix. Surprisingly, I’ve actually gotten a lot of wear out of the gray ones too.
