Rockin' Booties!

Well, hello September! It's nice to see you and all of the fun things you bring with you!!

I love all things about the Fall season (besides loud football games on the TV in my house, but that is whole other subject): sweaters, blankets, PSL from Starbuck's, boots, leggings, sweatshirts, the crisp air and leaves turning colors (I could keep going but I will stop). But today, I want to talk about BOOTIES!!! Not your bottom, but the booties that go on your feet!

I have already purchased two new pair for this season ( here and here) and, I am so excited about them. There are so many choices out there right now; ankle, flat, pointy toe, stiletto, stacked heel, wedges, ahhhhh!!! How is a girl to choose what's best?!? These are my thoughts and things I ask myself/friends/clients when helping narrow down which booties are best.

What are you going to wear them with mostly? Pants? Skirts? Dresses?  My opinion is that if you are going to be wearing them mostly with shorter dresses or skirts, its best to have a lower bootie and preferably one that dips down slightly in  the front, elongating the leg. I like this style and the popular ankle style with rolled skinny jeans as well. Here are some of my favorite picks for the season:

If you think you will be wearing your booties mostly with tight (around the ankle) skinnies, jeggings or leggings, I like the style that come higher up on the leg. These can also look cute with long maxi dresses or skirts. This style can look bulky if you like to roll your jeans, but looks best when the pant fits snugly into the boot. I love the peep toe style, which you find more with this height.
