My New Happy: Booties For Fall

Booties For Fall


Happy Wednesday and welcome to Fall Fashion Frenzy with The Blended Blog. Today we're talking about booties, the greatest footwear invention of modern times.

Up until recently, I didn't own many pairs of shoes.  They were never my jam, and I tended to wear the same ones over and over.  I know, Deena is currently swooning somewhere up north.  But now I've seen the light, and suddenly I'm in love with all the shoes.  Especially booties.  Especially for fall.

They're pretty much the perfect thing for your feet this time of year, because they go with everything.

Dresses...


Slacks...


And jeans.


Currently, I'm eyeing these lovelies.


And animal print would be fun.


Have you noticed that all my booties are flat?  My entire life, I've felt too tall, so I buy flat shoes.  I'm always scrunching down in pictures and seeing myself as the jolly green giant among a sea of lovely, regular height women.  Stacy London wouldn't be very happy with me.  She says "tall women should just never, ever look like they are apologizing for their height".  So I'm going to stop apologizing, quit scrunching down, and see what happens.  Maybe I'll even buy a pair of booties with a 3" heel.  Maybe.

  1. We are going to get you heeled boots, girl!! You are amazing and should embrace your height----lord knows, everyone else wishes they were tall. I couldn't be a Rockette because I'm too short!!
    And I'm glad you've gotten the shoe/boot bug. They really are a great thing in life. Just think, you can gain 5 pounds and they still fit!!

    1. Ha - I'm going to look for a pair! I've been this tall since 6th grade, so you'd think I'd be used to it by now. It's handy for reaching things on high shelves!

  2. Embrace your height and wear it proud! I do kind of love the fact that booties can be flat and still look fabulous and I am actually thinking I need a pair of flat, little booties as mine all have block heels.

    1. I'm 5'9, which isn't THAT tall but it feels like it. I've been this height since 6th grade so you'd think I'd be used to it by now!

  8. Stacy is right, you should never apologize for that beautiful height! I actually can't wear booties, because they look terrible on my short legs, so rock those booties with your long legs loud and proud!

  10. I often hear Stacey London's voice in MY head, too! Especially when I opt for the COMFORTABLE option - boy did that get her goat when people dared to prioritize COMFORT!

    I remember when ankle booties first came out and we were all like "what are THOSE?!" It was quite a few years before I found them even tolerable...and a few more before I thought I might actually LIKE them, and now, like you said, I can't imagine life without them!

    Thanks for linking up with the Fabulous Friday link-up!
