Want It, Need It: Fall Boots

Cold weather isn’t really my cup of tea, but there’s something about the word ‘fall’ that conjures up images of football tailgates, pumpkin spice lattes, and my favorite seasonal accessory — boots.

As days at the beach become fewer and far between, it’s tempting to simply pack up your summer wardrobe and break out a shopping list full of “cold weather only” items. But instead of picking out a heavy pair of lined boots you’ll only wear one season a year, you can save your wallet (and yourself from the endless lines and overcrowded back-to-school sales) by investing in a pair of fall boots to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall. A light sweater and ankle boots make a flimsy sundress autumn appropriate in an instant, over-the-knee boots add some coverage and a high-fashion touch to that plain shift you lounged around in all summer, and there’s nothing like ditching your office high heels for an edgy (and comfy!) pair of lace-up combat boots.
