Fashion Friday: 5 Must Have Boots for Fall

What’s the best part about fall? Pumpkin Spice everything? Apple pie warm from the oven? Walking with leaves crunching underfoot?

Sorry. You’re all wrong. The best part of fall is BOOTS.

But there are so very many. What do you need in your closet?

Rain boots
. You think you’ll never wear them. Then you finally get a pair and realize you wear them all the time. Bonus? Buy a pair of fuzzy, warm boot liners and BAM! Winter boots!
Splurge: Hunter Wellies ($140) Save: Kamik ($50)

ankle bootie
Neutral Ankle Bootie
. No longer a fad, these have been around for several years and keep coming up every season. Worth buying, in my opinion. These are the perfect option for skirts/shorts if  you have shorter legs, as they don’t visually cut you off at the ankle, so they add the illusion of a longer leg.
