The beginning of the fall wish lists...


I think I went through all of last year without really buying very much as far as clothes and shoes go. My mom did get me a really great pair of black Steve Madden booties. The reason I say that is because my other boots are in a bit of rough shape so I needwant a pair or two this year.

I love booties, but the thing is, I know tall boots are a bit more flattering on me because I have short legs-- this also means booties with heels are going to be more flattering on me, but flat shoes are more practical.

I say all of that but I still can't stop dreaming of a few of these boots with a slight heel or wedge. The black rag & bone pair are a complete splurge that will never happen but I liked them too much not to share. I was kind of obsessed with every single rag & bone pair I came across on Nordstrom.



Are you looking forward to the change in footwear for fall as much as I am? Do you have a bootie/book preference? What are some of your favorite shoe brands or places to shop?

  1. I have the same short leg issue - I love booties in theory but usually they don't quite work on me. Still, I love these pretty shoe pics! :)

  2. I am SO looking forward to changing footwear and clothing! Love the booties. I have one pair, but like you I have short legs. Oh well. I'll rock them anyway.

  3. It is my goal to to get a pair of short ankle booties this fall - I think they look fabulous with skinny jeans and a chunky sweater. These are great picks!

  4. I really need some booties!! The Dolce Vita ones you have listed are really great - I like the little wedge for a little bit of a dressier look!

  6. I love your bootie picks, and I desperately need some new ones as I only have a tall pair of boots. I'm especially enjoying the Michael Kors and the Rad and Bone ones!

  7. the cheaper the better for me! but i have come to learn that cheap sometimes equals doesnt last long, lol. holy crapola those rag and bones are gorgeous but price tag no thank you.
    i like boots with heels but i never wear them because i'm already tall and i'll be taller than my husband and i just feel so awkward when i'm taller than everyone (more so than normal) so i stick to flat boots, but i have gotten a couple of ankle boots with heels because they looked better than the flat ones. another problem with me is that i have really big feet (ok not really big, but big enough) so heeled shoes disguise that, flat shoes make them look really long and stupid.
    i'm gonna stop talking now, lol. hope you find some new boots!

  20. I'm in love with booties right now and can't wait to get a couple of pairs! I'm the same way with needing a bit of heel for my short legs and I've found that wedges work best. I have my eye on cognac ones from Nordstrom.. they will be mine!

  21. Girl, I have short legs too and definitely rocked the booties last year!! Both of my pairs have a 2-2.5 inch heel to give a little height, but still be comfortable to walk around in all day. Loving all these neutral pairs.. you'll be able to wear them with so much! xo

  22. Love booties!!! I have a few pairs that are super easy to dress up for work with a skirt - love them!

  23. Oh my gosh this just made me so excited for fall! I really need a cute pair of heeled booties, but I need them to be short heels since I'm already tall. I have to find the perfect pair though, because I feel like only a few of them would actually look good on me :)
