Fall is finally, officially here! I know closet enthusiasts everywhere are as excited as I am because there's so much to love about fall fashion. Of course, I'll have a hard time giving up my summer sandals (like these!!), but I'm just as excited to test drive some new cool-weather looks. That's probably the best part about the change in seasons--an excuse to constantly change your wardrobe..aka an excuse to SHOP. With that being said, I am doing my annual closet overhaul and making room for some serious fall footwear.
Fall footwear means one thing to me: boots. Boots are my FAVORITE. Can you feel me screaming?? There are so many different styles and trends to suit just about everyone's personal look, and every budget as well. Here is the only boot guide you will need to move you seamlessly into fall and beyond. Get to steppin.' (Click each pair to shop!)
Some of the coolest boot styles out there, ankle boots should be your go-to's this season when wearing everything from shorts, to dresses and, of course, denim. Reaching from one to four inches above your ankle, these mini boots have transformed into all kinds of trendy styles that are sure to make you swoon.

Footwear News recently named five more trends 'that make ankle boots exciting again.' Here are a few pairs to add to your closet:
When in doubt, throw on booties. This is probably my favorite category right now because it is the one category I am actually currently shopping for myself. Oops, sorry. #selfish Like any good shopping-crazed lunatic on the hunt, I have scoured Pinterest gathering inspiration, I have searched Lyst where I found all kinds of bootie-and-denim combos, and I have stared at countless stranger's Instagrams in search of the perfect style for me. Here is what I have narrowed it down to so far. Which ones are your faves? Help me, help you.
We saw a rise (get it? k.) in thigh-high boots last year, and these babies don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Thank God for that, because I have 472 pairs. I'm exaggerating...sort of. OTK boots were considered to be an adventurous choice in years past...ehm, Pretty Woman anyone?..but today, these thigh-grazers are just as much of a staple as your favorite jeans. Trust me, nothing takes an outfit from dull to chic faster than a pair of these boots. Not to mention that they add an extra layer of warmth when temps start to drop. Obviously these beauties are the be-all end-all, but here are my top picks under $250:
I got this pair for myself during the #NSale and I can't wait to break them out without having a full-on heat stroke. Can you guys believe it's almost October?! Birthday month, coming in hot!
