Fall Boot Favorites

I have had a million things piling up on my plate lately and this blog has clearly suffered as a result.  Since I have failed to post on the lack of excting things happening in life, I thought I would start off by mentioning the dreaded arrival of fall in Washington.  While people who complain about sweating bullets in the sweltering summer heat may look forward to fall, the end of summer to us Washingtonians simply means being deprived of sunlight as a source of Vitamin D for at least six months.  Be expecting a plethora of gray morbid outfit posts, but do not fret, I plan to stick to my no-pants policy for as long as I can possibly hold out.  Since I will be living in tights and leggings, the search is on for a pair of mid-height booties which will preferably have at least a four inch heel/wedge, cover my ankles, and be made of durable material that can handle mud/rain/dog fecal matter/whatever a clumsy spazz can manage to stumble into (NO suede).  Last year I looked for the 'perfect' fall boot and was utterly disappointed with the results, but this year it seems that designers got it together and released an enormous selection of juicy foot candy which I am drooling with excitement over (the credit card on the other hand, isn't sharing this same sentiment).  Here are several of my favorites: 


2. Senso Neve $199.95
3. Topshop Asher II $80.00
5. Dolce Vita Prince $134.95 

I find myself leaning towards shoe number five....  Call me delusional, but the utilitarian looks gives me the impression that the 'Prince' can handle the beating/trashing/serious abuse that I plan to deliver.


  1. I like #5 too. Well, hope at least there's some sun for you in the future.

  2. I like #3 and #5 the most. And I totally feel with you - here in Europe it´s getting quite cold, too. Even though we still have some warm days... there is no way to go out without tights :((

    Have a beautiful week!!


  3. Cute boots! Can't wait to see which pair you purchase :)

  4. love this shoes!!!
    especially nr 2 and 4!


  5. I was totally thinking #5 too! And if you are talking about D.C, then I am totally with you - I couldn't wait for it to cool down, but I was totally unprepared for the rainy, rainy weather (being a freshman this is my first experience of their weather). Props to you for not wearing pants though! Boots and jeans have been my go-to lately...
