My favorite thing to shop for in the Fall, hands down is boots. Last year, my big investment was Stuart Weitzman’s Highland Boots. The skintight suede, high heel, and over-the-knee cut are definitely a much (sexier) departure from my usual style but I loved pairing them with skirts + leggings all winter long. This year, my big boot splurge is going to be his 5050 boots in Black Napa (I have a neutral pair that I bought on sale, but am just dying for the black.) If I hadn’t already bought the Highland Boots, I totally would buy these… a comfier alternative! I tend to invest when I buy my boots as I take good care of them so that they last a long time. I protect them using Scotchgard, carefully wipe them off at least once a week, and store them in their original boxes when not in use. A good cobbler can work wonders… and I still have pairs of boots that I bought years and years ago (hello, Rag & Bone Harrow booties… talking to you!) Buy the best boots you can, take good care of them, and they’ll only get better with age.
Today I rounded up a few of my personal favorite boots… most are investment pieces, but I’ve included a few less expensive options (and if you’re looking for a less expensive version of the 5050, these are amazing… and under $100!) On another note, these Steve Madden tiger booties are so not my usual style, but I can’t get ’em out of my head!

Love this feature! My favorites are 1 and 8. Love the height with a little heel.
Love the 5050 boot!
My sister bought those Frye boots (#6) today and I am definitely stealing (I mean, borrowing) them. They have just the right amount of slouch and look so worn in. This is a great selection…I’m still after the 50/50!
