Fall on a budget - Ankle Booties

Monday, we prepared for the chilly Autumn/Winter ahead by adorning ourselves in velvet blazers, today we must cover our feet.

When warm and comfortable, our feet take us all over town, shopping, skipping, running, brunching and working. They deserve to be adorned in beautifully lovely boots. Ankle booties are a great purchase because of their versatility.

(I differentiate ankle bootie from ankle boot because the bootie sits below the ankle, while the ankle boot traditionally fits over the ankle. For anyone without perfect ankles and calves this is a not the most flattering of looks. Hence, the ankle bootie, which works for everyone!)

They finish off a skirt and tights perfectly, you can always throw them on with jeans, or step it up a notch and flaunt the newest black sequin pants with a blouse and chunky cardigan. Really, the options are out there!

If you want more punch to your boot there are studded, folded and laced versions everywhere. Leave a comment with what you are looking for, along with a price point, and I will reply with some examples.
