Greetings, friends! I’m back today with another post in my 5 Favorites series! Let’s talk boots. Some of my favorites have sold out, so I’m choosing my top 5 that are still available OR have a very similar style that is available.
My 5 Favorite Boots/Booties
#1. Taupe Suede Split Shaft Booties (similar) // These might be my favorite boots at the moment. It was love at first sight when I went to the preview day for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale back in July. I started in the shoe department (lesson learned from my first year covering the #NSale) and this was the first pair of boots I gravitated to. They’ve got just enough of an edgy vibe but still work well with my classic wardrobe, and the color is modern and so versatile.
These are also nice because they’re pretty much 3-season booties. The lighter color and lower shaft lends them well to spring outfits as well as fall and winter. In fact, if I was younger, I’d even wear them with shorts in the summertime. #dontworry #nothappening
#2. Blondo Olivia Knee High Boots // These boots are amazing. They’re incredibly comfortable, for one thing. But they’re also waterproof. I have the black leather, but they also come in black suede and grey suede, and those are also waterproof.
I wore these walking all over the mall the other day and they felt great. They may look stiff, but they don’t feel that way at all, and the inside is just really soft and nice to wear.
FYI, any Blondo boots are going to be comfortable and weather proof, and they have a lot of great looking styles.
#3. Rag & Bone Margot Booties (similar for less option: BP. Lance Block Heel Bootie) // I hesitate to put these on here because of the price (I did get them at 40% off, just for the record) but they really do measure up to all the hype.
I’d heard a lot about them, but never tried them until I saw them on sale a few months ago. They’re leather inside and out, and they’re super comfortable, plus they look amazing.
That said, I realize they’re not exactly budget-friendly, so if you like the look, I recommend looking at the BP. Lance bootie. It’s really nice looking, and you can’t beat the price for a stylish leather bootie.
I actually wanted to share my Sam Edelman Camellia tall boots from the #NSale, but they’re long gone. At any rate, both are suede knee-high boots with a 3.5″ heel. While I love my OTK boots, I still think a knee-high boot is the most universally flattering and easy to wear.
These UGG boots have shearling lined footbed, and I love how the inside of the shaft is suede (not cloth-lined.) They’re also weather proof. They’re comfortable to wear for hours, and I like that I can be dressed up and still warm and dry in mucky weather.
#5. Hunter Original Refined Rain Boots (option) // I saved the best for last! These are probably my favorite pair of all because they can be worn all year round, and I just love this new updated refined style. It’s much less bulky and more fashion forward than the original Hunter style.
My exact pair was a Nordstrom exclusive for the Anniversary Sale, but the Hunter Original Refined Rain Boots are similar. I also linked another similar option that has the double buckle more like mine, but neither have the contrasting stripes. It’s a fun detail, but the plain ones are great too, and probably more timeless.
I hope that was fun. I know it’s getting late in the season to think about adding boots/booties to your closet, but it’s a good time to get good deals if you have something you’ve been wanting.
Also, if you missed my Facebook Live yesterday, you can view it HERE. I was a bit of a spaz… my true personality is coming out! I really need a better set-up with a tripod or something. #workingonthat
Afterwards, I hopped on my Insta Story and did a try-on session. You can still catch it until about 3PM EST. If you don’t have Instagram, no worries. I’ll be sharing all of the items I tried on with pictures and info on sizing, etc. on Saturday here on the blog.
