3 ways to wear booties this fall


Booties 3 ways

Surely by now there’s a hot pair of booties you’re coveting; I can’t tell you how many booties are on my wish list this Fall, it’s a little embarrassing.  And the everlasting question with trends of any kind, like ankle booties, is how on earth to wear them without looking ridiculous, so I present to you 3 ways to wear booties.


1 // skinnies


Wear a pair of stunning black bootie heels with some gorgeous leather pants, a slightly oversize long blouse and a tank, a gorgeous pendant or statement necklace, a big watch, and a stack of bangle bracelets.  Perfect for the chilly days to come this Fall.


pencil skirt

Dress up a little for the office in some equestrian themed awesome, unless your office is actually boots on the ground with horses, in which case maybe not so much.  Otherwise grab a fun patterned pencil skirt, a patterned blouse (but it MUST be in the same color scheme), some platform booties, a horse ring (a horse is a horse, of course!), a black leather envelope clutch, and another classic bold statement ring.  Boom.


mini dress


3 // mini dress


I can’t think of a single reason not to wear a mini dress with tights, can you?  The outfit is all put together, all you need to add is a handful of gorgeous accessories (no necklace on this, too many competing patterns), some yummy opaque tights, and a pair of to-die-for booties (ones with tassels won’t hurt anyone).  I wish I were wearing this entire outfit right now, head to toe.  Wear it out to lunch with your girls, date night, or for that giant presentation in front of the boss/whole class next week.

What do you think of booties, are you all in?  I can’t think of a better shoe to keep your closet current and your brain happy.  So there you have it, 3 ways to wear booties this Fall.
