Fall Into Fresh Fashions

Lighten up your cold-weather layers. Once an autumn chill starts working its way into the air on a regular basis, it’s easy to suddenly feel weighed down by all the layers you have to wear and carry with you on a daily basis.

This week’s pretty find is truly a gem – these high-heeled booties are classy, classic, and ideal for that transitional period between the end of summer and full-on cold weather. The structured style and smooth, soft ivory leather upper will never, ever go out of style, and the thick, chunky heel looks wonderfully clean and well-designed, but also happens to be amazingly comfortable, too (at least when compared to a skinny stiletto heel).

light beige bootiesIn lovely soft, light beige color hue and totally timeless style, these booties are the perfect fall purchase. They’ll add a fashionable touch to your favorite outfits for years to come!

Dress up a basic but beautifully polished getup. There’s really no ensemble these boots wouldn’t look absolutely amazing with – go casual with a loose, comfy pair of jeans (even a pair with some strategically placed rips or fading, for an edgier feel) and a favorite tee, and add a blazer on top for a casually chic look. For a much dressier outfit you could easily wear to a corporate event or networking drinks session, put on this perfectly put together pair with a favorite, flattering cocktail dress in basically any color – whether you’re the kind of city girl who always favors black or loves a shockingly vibrant color, these booties will complement your choice beautifully. But here, I haven’t gone completely casual or dramatically dressy here – in my chosen look, I’ve gone for an outfit that’s totally refined tasteful everyday look that is comfortable enough for fun day out but polished enough for the office. A pleated knee-length skirt in an oh-so-professional navy linen is another classic piece that every girl could use in her wardrobe – the neutral navy hue looks lovely next to this week’s Goodwill gem, but would look equally nice next to just about anything else. A simple white blouse allows the flirty skirt and fun shoes to shine, and topped with a go-to cardi or tailored blazer, this look is complete is no time.
