Shoe of the Week

Shoe of the Week

Time to pack away those sandals and flip flops.
Boot season is here!

At the beginning of fall, I always have the hardest time trying to find the perfect pair of shoes to wear. It’s too chilly to wear sandals but not cold enough to bring out the big tall boots! Last year, I fell in love with booties and I can not wait to buy more!

Booties are seriously the perfect shoes for the transition from summer to fall. Turn your favorite summer dress into a fall dress by adding a cardigan or denim jacket and a pair of booties. My go to outfit for this time of year is a lightweight sweater, my favorite pair of jeans and booties.

This fall we are running weekly sales on some of our booties. This week the Charles Albert Rainy Booties in Taupe and Black were the Shoe of the Week. They are regularly $29.90 but are only $19.90 this week! Shoe of the Week

Western Boots

You don’t have to be a cowgirl to rock Western style boots. Western boots look amazing with dresses and jeans alike. They are a key factor is pulling off the hippie/bohemian style that is so popular today. Western style boots look particularly good with lace, fringe, or printed tops.

Combat boots are great to have in your wardrobe because they can be styled so many ways.

Tall Riding Boots

Every girl needs a pair of tall riding boots in her wardrobe. Riding boots transform a variety of different outfits from trendy to chic. They are also practical because their height helps keep you warm during the fall and winter!

Casual Ankle Boots or Booties

A subtle way to follow the boot trend is to rock a pair of casual ankle boots. They look ever-so-stylish with a pair of skinny jeans or jeggings. Ankle boots or booties are great if you want to make your legs appear longer and the slight heel makes your legs look amazing.

Dress Boots

It is essential to have a pair of dress boots in your closet for special events and occasions where casual boots just won’t cut it, i.e. date nights. It is very appropriate, especially during the fall, to wear dress boots with dresses and skirts when more elegant fare is required.

5 Must-Have Women’s Boots for Fall

Putting Our Fashion Boots Forward for Fall

It can be hard bidding farewell to those long, warm, sunny days of summer… Believe me, I’ve been painstakingly counting down the days until that estimated first frost hits and the idea of autumn is firmly rooted in my wardrobe. Don’t get me wrong, I love the idea of layering, but my first love has to be boots. I wear boots all year long, spring, summer, fall, and winter. I have a WHOLE storage bin that is solely dedicated to just my collection of boots. I will switch out certain styles from season to season and even retire some that are not currently trending so that I can use them another season. I own over the knee boots, under the knee boots, embroidered boots, embellished boots, boots with studs, vintage boots (my favorite), ankle boots, combat boots, boots with metal, boots with fabric, rain boots, boots that are filled with wear and tear, and my list goes on…

My point here is that boots are the highlight of fall for most fashion forward folks. We live, eat, breath, and occasionally sleep (dream) boots. We follow fashion magazines, online blogs, fashion sites, and can often be caught staring at the feet of everyone we meet when daydreaming about boots.

It’s an addiction, and I’m here to confess that I have an addiction to boots…

Celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens, Blake Lively and even Miley Cyrus know exactly how to outfit a pair of thigh-high socks with boots. I am also a HUGE fan of the girls at Free People! I continually get lost for hours on their BLDG 25 blog.

We wore a pair of thigh-high socks with our Roxy Newton Crochet Combat Boot.

Thigh-high socks look great paired with both tall and ankle boots!

 

Boot Obsessed:

We had featured a few of our favorite boots for fall in our Pre-Fall Fashion Essentials You Can’t Live Without blog along with other cold weather must-have items.  I have to admit that Roxy has impressed me this Fall 2013 season with a wide range of boots that are too cute for words.

Very Volatile Shoes always seems to deliver just the right amount of country-couture meets street-chic, too!

 

The Budget Fashionista:

Okay, admittedly, I am DEFINITELY not a millionaire, I have no ‘black card’ (sadface) and this is just a wild guess, but I am not alone in this. Believe me, my heart goes out to each and every one of my sister friends who have to treat their dimes like dollars. #muchlove
