The Perfect Fall Boots


1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

I’m currently searching for the perfect ankle boots for fall, which is no easy task. I have a few conditions: they have to be affordable, comfortable (since I walk to and from work), durable (the streets of NYC are not particularly kind to shoes), and versatile. See what I mean? Not so easy! These are a few options that I like so far and I hoping to make it in to the store later this week to try some of these on.

Tell me: What type(s) of shoes are on your fall wish list?

    Wearing boots is one of the reasons I look forward to fall so much!! Great choices, btw! I like the straps on the 5th but the simplicity and sleekness of the 3rd. =)

    <3 Amanda,

    • Thank you Amanda! I agree- boots are definitely one of the fun parts of fall! :)

  • Hope

    I like 4 and 6! Super polished. I’m currently looking for some of these as well (in tan too, I think). I hate how NYC ruins shoes…

    • Ugh, tell me about it! The streets of NYC are mean…to my shoes.

  • Elana

    Oh man, can I have all of them? They’re seriously perfect. I love wearing short, black motorcycle boots. Unfortunately the only ones I can afford are from Target. But these… I need 2 and 5.

    • Haha, wouldn’t that be nice?! I should double-check Target- they tend to have really cute/affordable shoes.

  • I like #5 a lot – I’m pretty happy i found a black wedge bootie last year that mostly fits your bill. though they are madden girl, so fingers crossed they survive a second winter.

    • I kind of want a black wedge bootie too- I used to have a pair, but then I wore them to death and they’re looking pretty bad. I have a pair of madden girl sandals that have now survived two summers, so hopefully that means your boots will last too!

  • Ooh I love booties! They’re so versatile! I’m going to have to agree with Elana and say that 2 and 5 are my favorite picks!

    • 2 is a very popular choice (and I’m leaning towards that pair myself)! :)

  • I love #5! I have a hard time styling ankle boots some times. What would you pair them with? I’m looking forward to wearing my cognac riding boots, and perhaps purchasing a pair of grey OTK boots to balance out my camel-colored leather mini.

    • I like #5 too, although I might go with a sleeker design like #2 or #3, just because I want them to be super versatile. I want to pair them with skinny pants, or a flared mini skirt (like the prep school look I posted last week), or I think they could even look cool with a high-low skirt! Hmmm, now that I mention that, I really want to try it! :)

      Oh yes, riding boots are a must for fall. I need a new pair of those too, but right now I’m just focusing on the ankle boots.

    I think 6 would be the best for you! Although my first favorite is 3, but it seems to have the highest heel. Lovely choices!


    • Thanks for your suggestion! Number #3 is my favorite also, but I’m thinking the heel might not be so practical, so I might go with #2.

  • I’m really loving #5. It’s the buckles! I am hoping to find some black booties too, akin to #5 but with more buckles or studs!

    • #5 is a big hit and the buckles are a really great detail! :)

  • Oh hell, #6 is from UO? Tempted, so tempted…..

    • Haha, yep, I know, it’s hard to resist!
