Fall Booties

I'm really in the writing mood this morning, and had started to write a new post when I realized that today is the day I need to renew my military ID. If any of you have had to do this, you know about the fun I'm in for. I'm getting a late enough start as it is, so I'm saving my original post for later and keeping today's short and sweet. I truly am thankful for the privileges my military ID affords me, but I wish it didn't take hours to get a new one!

Anyway, the air has gotten slightly cooler here, especially in the mornings, and I can't wait for the true drop in temperatures that will come around mid-October. October really is a beautiful month in Alabama. I got so excited for fall the other day that I took out some of my favorite booties and tried them on with a pair of jeans and a sweater. Yes, the air conditioning is still running in our house, but it was fun to pretend.

(Blue wedges from Nine West last year; Oxfords from Saks Fifth Avenue Off Fifth two years ago)

Here are a few other pairs of gorgeous booties that I'm dying to add to my collection. They're both way out of my price range, and I really don't need any more boots, but these are so lovely just to look at. To me, booties mean fall, crunching leaves, jeans, scarves, and wool sweaters. Daydream with me?

Perhaps I'll break out a pair of booties tomorrow in honor of the first official day of fall, even if it doesn't exactly feel like the fall I'm used to. Happy change of seasons to you! Have a great weekend.


  1. Those first boots are really nice, wherever did you get them? : )

    I love fall booties! Both of yours are super cute :) I have a pair of black ones but I'd like some brown as well!

  3. I got them from a sweet man who wasn't my husband! Don't worry, he made me an honest woman soon thereafter ;)

  4. Thanks Kristyn! I know, I love caramel boots and am hunting for the right pair...

  5. Gorgeous! I LOVE that pair from Anthropologie. The heel height is just right. So beautiful!

  6. Oh me too, I often think that I could wear everything at Anthropologie happily...they hit the nail on the head with the pieces they carry!

  7. I totally agree!
