Boots vs Booties
My favorite time of year is here! I love Fall but unfortunately it doesn’t truly begin to look or feel like fall in Los Angeles until now [mid November]. As much as I try to force the issue with chunky sweaters and booties in October, we all know that you’ll be drenched in sweat by 1PM. Thankfully come November things chill out (literally) and we can actually dress the part for fall.
I’m big on casual fall style–I love love love jeans with boots and something simple on top. That’s been my go-to look for colder months for years and each year I look forward to incorporating the season’s latest trends into the mix. This season I’m all about chunky boots and oversized outerwear. To balance out the look I pair them with something more sleek and fitted (like the skinny jeans & tight long sleeve shirt I’m wearing in these pics).
You might not have noticed, but I don’t wear tall, over-the-knee boots. Reason being I’m just too short. They tend to swallow my body and make me look disproportionate. However, I LOVE booties and always get excited for a new pair (or 2 or 3) come fall. Booties are a short girl’s best friend. You can wear them with jeans, shorts, dresses, the list goes on. This season I’m really digging boots with studs and these ones from Frye have everything I want in a boot. They are “chunky” without entering Dad Sneaker territory, but still sleek and tapered at the ankle for my petite frame. I definitely plan to wear these with a dress at some point, too.
I will link some additional Frye boots in this post if you’re into my look!
