Boot Season Has Arrived

     Think of Fall and Winter, what comes to mind?  For us, it’s our wardrobe. What do we already have, and where we can fill in?  Boots are a big item for this upcoming season.  I'm sure you already have your go to styles, probably a classic black or brown tall boot or bootie. However, the new season brings an opportunity to add a new pair of boots that you absolutely love to freshen up your collection.  We've gone out and pulled together a number of boot styles we hope you love.

     Look for boots or shoes that will work with your fall wardrobe, your lifestyle, and your job. Velvet is everywhere from sneakers to booties. We can’t get enough of the rich colors that are offered for velvets. There are beautiful Bordeaux's, navy, teal, pewter (very neutral) and of course black. Treat velvet the same way you would suede, they are not as prized as you might think. 

     Embroidered boots are another fun trend and are great to pair with jeans, leggings, and fall skirts. Keep the boot embellishment to a minimum and you'll get more wear out of your outfits. We love Ariat Two24 Sonya short boot with a simple stitch. A good example of a fashion trend turned it into a classic you will wear for years to come. 

     Have you been thinking about finally getting that one pair of high leg boots you've loved for so long? Guess has a great high leg boot that will look sharp with fall skirts, pants, and jackets.  Again, when you buy that extra pair of boots this year, think about your wardrobe, the staples you already own and how this new addition will easily pair with and complete any outfit.

     Winter follows fall. Our winters can be severe so we are also on the look out  for harsh weather boots and attractive waterproof boots.  Sorel has a good collection of waterproof boots and are well priced and will last you many years.  Tory Burch's rain boot, April, is sharp looking boot and comfortable. Blondo has a waterproof riding boot as well as a few waterproof wedge boots. Last but not least, La Canadienne from Canada shows us beautiful rain and snow boots (wedge styles) that have traction soles for sure footed walking in rain and snow.

     There's such a variety of boot styles in the stores and online right now.  Over the knee, knee high, booties, comfort, winter, it can be overwhelming.  Remember, the true value of anything is in the cost verses the amount of usage. If the items can go with at least 3 other things, then you are guaranteed to get a fair amount of value from them.  Nordstrom has both on line and in store coupons at Groupon, which at last look, expire 11/1/16.
