Style Advice of the Week

The perfect shoe for the beginning of fall is undoubtedly the fabulous bootie. Booties are boots cropped down to shorter lengths from below the ankle to just below the calf. Heeled, flat, buckled and studded, this combination shoe and boot comes in a variety of chic styles and designs. Boots should be coveted items in any woman’s wardrobe. They add attitude to looks and can create a western rugged cowboy feel or sleek modern minimalist vibe. I couldn’t help but admire the sophisticated and effortless class that this Fashionista brings to her ensemble while incorporating fall’s hottest footwear. With natural tones, embroidered chiffon and relaxed chambray she brings a touch of boho to casual elegance.

The key to any great accessory is quality and versatility. Her booties are neutral in an oatmeal shade of suede and feature a two inch stacked heel. The natural hue can be matched to any other color and the heel creates possibilities for day or night. When shopping for a pair of boots this season keep in mind the value of investing in superior lush leather and soft suede. These fashionable booties definitely make this casual look that much more street worthy.

One of my favorite attributes of this outfit is how she pairs the booties with a daytime casual dress. Now is the time to ditch your strappy sandals and try out loose, flowing frocks with a chunky heeled bootie for a look that’s equally adorable! Take another style tip from this Fashionista and throw on a casual shirt overtop when that fall breeze picks up. Chambray shirts are so great for a light layering. In September I advise you to stash one in your satchel because you never know when you may need to throw overtop of an outfit.

Overall, we’ve learned that booties plus chambray shirt plus chic dress equals all you need for a daytime look this fall. This simple equation simply cannot go wrong and can take you from early morning class to dinner date night. Fashion lessons concluded.
