There is no better time to buy a great pair of boots than the fall. Toward the end of every August, I start flipping through magazines, researching websites, and peering through shop windows for the perfect boot. In the past, I’ve always alloted a large budget for this one wardrobe necessity. This year I came across too many to choose from and so many good deals, I didn’t have to choose just one!
I’ve never seen so many cute boot options out at one time that are actually comfortable. All three of these boots are cute and don’t come with walking restrictions and day after chiropractic appointments.
Black Ankle Booties: Madden Girl
When ankle boots first came out a few years ago, I was not a fan. Then I put a pair of ankle cowboy boots on with shorts and I couldn’t believe how long they made my legs look. I highly recommend this style when trying to look taller…and what girl isn’t? I found these at Ross for 25 bucks.
Black Victorian Booties: Bamboo
I love love love these boots! If you are a true Ross shopper, you have to willing to search a bit. I first came across this boot in size 6 in the right shoe. I then went on to find 7 more, right footed boots. I was so sad, but after scouring the racks and racks of shoes, I gave up. 20 minutes later, a nice gentleman that worked there, tracked me down and offered my a size 7 in the left foot. Though I’m a true 7.5, I couldn’t turn down his good deed or these adorable boots. 18 bucks! Worth the search.
Brown Lace Up Combat Boot: Diba
I REALLY, really wanted a pair of military boots, but I’m predicting they are a one year fad, so I didn’t want to invest a lot of money on them. After a couple months of searching, I came across these for 50 bucks at DSW. I love mixing the tough military look with a girly dress or a pair of dressy shorts. They kind of remind me of the junior high days of Doc Martin boots, but I still think they’re a fun alternative to the typical dressy boot you usually wear in the fall.
Black lace up open toe boot heels: Nine West
I was so excited to find these Nine West heels for 25 bucks at Ross. The thicker heel makes these more comfortable than a normal high heel, and the lace style is sexy and Victorian all at the same time. They’re half boots, half heels. Love them!
Gray ankle booties: Madden Girl
Another exciting boot find at Ross. These gray booties were 23 bucks, and are so comfortable and cute. The three little buttons down the side are an adorable detail, and gray is a great boot color alternative to black.
Peep Toe Oxfords: BCBG
I’m not gong to lie, when I saw these at Ross I almost screamed out lout in excitement. BCBG lace up Oxford heels for 40 bucks! If that isn’t a killer find, I don’t know what is. I am obsessed with Oxfords right now, and these are a great, more dressy pair. The heel is quite high, so I recommend not wearing them if you are going to be walking on cobblestone, up or down a lot of stairs, or standing for extended periods of time….basically, if you plan to sit.
Yes, I know, this blog incriminates me on the grounds of buying 6 pairs of boots in a little over a month, but the total for all 6 is still less than what I paid for my fall 2008 boot, so I don’t feel too bad. Plus, it’s all for the sake of the blog; I’ll expense them…Can I actually do that?
