Rose Quartz Sweater + OTK Boots

Apparently the Pantone colors of 2016 are Rose Quartz & Serenity, otherwise known as a girl baby or a boy baby, in my opinion, at least! 😉 lol I am not like a lot of girls and LOVE the color pink and incorporate it into everything I do, wear, see, etc. I do like it, though, in pops of color here or there and sometimes I’ll get really bold and wear it all in one piece. This blush, light pink, rose or rose quartz color, however, is a very subtle color and looks great with neutrals, specifically gray.

Sweater: Forever 21 (only available in this color, similar, ) // Jeans: Old Navy (similar, almost identical) // Boots: Ivanka Trump // Bag: Forever 21 (old, identical, love it in this color too!) // Sunnies: Ray-Ban

Another big trend for 2016, which has actually been going on since Fall/Winter 2014 is the over the knee boots. These OTK boots, as they are commonly referred to, are a far cry from the call girl, Pretty Woman knee high boots that we all fondly remember. Usually seen in mostly a suede fabric, these classy OTK boots are beautiful in black, gray or taupe and I’ve even seen them in this gorgeous color. I picked up these boots last year and have worn them with pants, jeans and dresses. I have a few skirt ideas in mind to wear them with too. I did wear them to work the other day with a cowl neck sweater, tights, a faux leather pencil skirt, which was on the longer side and more appropriate for an office setting.

So how are you going to wear these colors this year? Are you on board with the OTK boot trend?

As always, thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

xoxo, Hillary

  • Rose Quartz is slowly growing on me… I love it grounded with other neutrals– definitely makes it less “baby girl!” I’ve also found Bordeaux looks awesome with the light pink!
