it’s boot season and there are lots of choices this year. today, i’m sporting a pair of suede over the knee boots. but this winter you’ll find velvet boots. take a look at this casual pair. love patterns? patterned boots are on trend as are studded boots or grommets. who remembers go-go boots that were popular during the swinging sixties? yes, i owned a pair that i wore with a pleated skirt and iowa hawkey sweatshirt… guess what? white boots are back but in a sophisticated way. how about patent leather boots? you’ll find those in stock this year as well as sock boots. check out jeffrey campbell and marc fisher if you’re dipping one toe into trend waters. these are brands that won’t break the bank.
every season i add at least one pair of boots into my collection. maybe two or three if i’m lucky enough to score a pair on sale. sometimes, my size goes quickly so it’s always a waiting game for me. and i do love the over the knee trend so it was a no-brainer to scoop up this pair by linea paolo.
today, i’m wearing a denim skirt from loft (who extended cyber monday sales) similar here and popped a chunky sweater (sold out) similar here over the top. the temps have been hovering in the sixties during the day and forties/fifties at night so an extra layer is a must. a wonderful option in lieu of a coat is a ruana or poncho. what’s the difference you ask? technically, a poncho glides over your head and a ruana wraps around your arms with a slit down the front. either one is perfect for a chilly. take a look at this wrap or this one.
