Bridles & Baubles

Well Heeled

As August fades into September I can't help but dream about fall clothes; in particular, boots. Even though hot weather has set up shop for the duration, I find myself drooling over every boot and bootie I come across. I have fallen particularly hard for these boots from Kate Spade.

 I firmly believe that women's shoes should look like women's shoes. I don't like brogues, smoking slippers, manish boots or overly tall/overly wedged heels that look like they belong on a cross-dressing/stripper in Las Vegas. I prefer feminine details, elegant designs and simplicity with a few unexpected details. These booties check all the boxes and are versatile enough to wear with a wide range of outfits. Booties will remain the item du jour as long as skinny jeans allow you to show them off. 

The first boot is the Lanise boot and it's simple stacked heel, rounded toe and smooth leather scream "wear me every day" and the bow detail is just icing on the cake, giving it a fun, flirty and feminine kick. It is available in black, tan and brown. It also seems to be selling out very fast so if you like it, you better hop on it. Available at Kate Spade, Zappos and Nordstrom.

If you are on your feet a lot thru the day then might like the flat Prospect boot. It comes in luggage brown and black and looks like a fancy pair of paddock boots. It will look equally at home with skinny jeans and cozy knits. Available at Kate Spade and Nordstrom.

If you, like me, think everything is made better with sparkle then you will love the Landon boot. It combines three of my favorite things, black suede, glitter and a bow. Seriously, you can't go wrong! Wear these with skinny leather pants or black tights and skirt or dress. Available at Kate Spade and Nordstrom.
