By the way, have you noticed how much help I’ve provided for your holiday shopping thus far??  Seems like a little quid pro quo is appropriate, wouldn’t you say??  I accept gift cards to any store that carries clothing, shoes, and/or accessories.  Kthnx!  Just kidding.  Not really.  But I am really kidding.  Haha.  Okay!  Enough. 😛

It’s All About The Boots

The minute the temperature dropped below 70 degrees Fahrenheit, I brought my boots out to play!  Ugg boots, ankle boots, knee high boots, over the knee boots, black boots, brown boots…you name them, I have them.  After all, you know what they say…if the boot fits, buy it!  So, often, I do. That’s IS what they say, right??  Hehehehe!

Anyway, last week, a group of bloggers and I decided to get together and style boots for fall!  Often, people are unsure about what to wear boots, so today we’re styling our own as a ‘how-to-wear-boots’ guide for the fall/winter.

I decided to pair my knee-high boots with a faux-leather skirt, long-sleeved top, and 3/4 length coat.  Heels with a skirt that falls above the knee can’t possibly be warm enough for end-of-fall/winter’s-eve weather.  So boots are a nice way to add some warmth and coverage, without having to wear pants!

Finally, as mentioned, I’m excited to have partnered with three other bloggers who have also styled boots for the fall on their blogs!  Check out my friends Claudia of The Penny Closet, Paulina of Lil Bits of Chic, and Silvia of Spanish Muse below (left to right).

Hope this post helps inspire you to find new ways to style your boots for cooler temps.  Comment below with your favorite boot style, how you prefer to wear your boots in the fall or winter, or simply to tell me what you thought of this post. You can also check out my daily outfits on Instagram, source of inspiration on Pinterest, and latest musings and retweets on Twitter. Finally, don’t forget to stop by my friends’ blogs (see above for links) for additional inspiration!  Have a fantastic weekend, friends!!

Until next time!  Stay Chic!
