Fall is upon us! The leaves are turning and there is a crisp feel to the air. Its time to pull out the chunky sweaters, scarves, and leggings. The one item you maybe lacking in your wardrobe and what I consider to be a must have for the fall is a great pair of boots. You may have a pair of Ugg boots but nothing looks more elegant than a great pair of brown or black leather boots. The best thing about searching for the right pair of booties is there is a vast variety available to you. Pictured above are my tall brown boots and heeled ankle booties; each style giving the outfit a different look. Similar to choosing clothing, when shopping for footwear you should select styles that are in sync with your fashion personality. Purchasing a pair of boots should be an investment, as you would like the longevity to coincide with the amount you paid. I would love to spend over $400.00 dollars on a pair of Frye or Tory Burch boots; however, right now it is simply not in my budget. You may find that this dollar amount is out of your price range, but fear not, you will be able to find the perfect footwear addition at a more affordable price. The heeled booties I purchased on sale at Steve Madden, in Boston, at the end of season last year. While the tall pair I picked up on sale during back to school at Macy's both were just shy of $100.00. Be sure to watch for specials that retailers are offering. Most offer friend and family discounts. As the temperature drops, I challenge you to stray away from your Uggs or Bear Paws and put yourself into something a bit more fashion forward like a pair leather boots. Paired with leggings, sweaters, dresses or denim, they will help complete your outfit creating an effortlessly chic look.
Happy boot shopping and stay sassy. Xo
