Alright ya’ll, I’m starting to come to terms that Autumn has arrived. Autumn actually stands as my second favorite season after Summer so transitioning over isn’t tough for this gal. The lingering reminder that Winter comes shortly after is what’s daunting, but we’ll disregard that notion. I actually love the in-between period which I refer to as September; cool mornings, warm to hot afternoons, and back to cool nights. In the perfect world, it would be this temperature every single day of the year.
But what is any girly-girl really giddy about during this time of year? Aside from pumpkin everything it’s definitely the Autumn wardrobe! Am I right?! I’m ready to break out the leggings, tights, long sleeved tops, blouses, and my personal favorite…boots.
I’ll have a post with my favorite Autumn Clothing Items but today I’m talking about
I am such a die hard boots fan. Last year, I bought myself my first pair of suede Knee High Boots from Nine West, ya’ll I’ve fallen madly in love and I simply can’t go back to riding boots. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pair of riding boots. In fact, I’ll happily take Britt’s Tory Burch Riding Boots right off her hands if she wanted 😉
So with the snow and wearing my Nine West ones every day to work and on the weekends, those babies got torn up and just barely made it to the end of Winter. They were dunzo!
So this time I succumbed to buying two. Ya know, one for work and one for play or a back-up. Plus right now on Nine West, if you buy 2 pairs you get 40% off! They are also having a 75% off sale but those shoes are mostly from their spring/summer collection. But for sure check it out!!!
The first pair I got which will be mostly for work
Kerianna Over-The-Knee Boots
Suede in the front with an elastic back and a nice chunky 3″ heel. I’m in love. I love the elastic back because it’s not over the top dressy in my business casual work environment. Shop this look HERE
And for my “out and about” pair
Xperian Over The Knee Boots
All around suede with a 2 3/4″ heel and the circumference of these boots are a tad tighter which my annoyingly skinny calves are excited for. They look a little more dressy which I think I’ll love for the weekends or nights out. Shop this look HERE
I’ve never had an issue with Nine West shoes, they’re my happy medium between fancy name brand shoes but surprisingly very comfortable too. #WIN
I have Britt to thank for getting me hooked on these but they are THE best rain boots ever. I have the matte black ones with adjustable calves. So not only are these perfect for a rainy day but I also wear them in the snow and they’re awesome. Bring on the inclement weather. And luckily these babies will last a while because you’re not wearing them all day every day so it’s definitely worth the $. Also, Nordstom will have some crazy good sales on them every now and then so look out for them! They’re also super cute paired with just about any outfit out there. And they have them in all sorts of colors; if I were to get another pair I’d definitely aim for the glossy red or matte olive green. Shop the look HERE
Last but not least, your girl has to have a pair of booties. I actually got one of my favorite pairs as the winter was ending and we were heading into the spring but it was still dreary and cold. I got my pair from Marshalls so its not likely that I’ll be able to find them nor do I know the brand, real helpful I know…
Don’t be surprised by the fact that they are also black 😉 they have a pleather-like material which is good for melting snow; they don’t get as easily ruined as suede. The chunky heel on them is about 3 1/2″, and for reference, I prefer shoes to have a chunky heel rather than a stiletto because they’re just so much more durable and they definitely last longer. Luckily these are still in great condition so I’ll hopefully get another year out of them.
What is your foot preference come Autumn/Winter?
