Since the first crack of fall this year there’s been one thing on my mind: boot season. Up until now it’s really been more bootie season, but finally (FINALLY!) it’s time to pull out those over-the-knee boots. Today I’m wearing my first new pair of the season, and these boots were made for walkin’. They’re made by Born, so you know they’re as comfy as can be, but there are so many other reasons why I love these boots. We don’t get much rain here in Southern California, but there’s one particular February Fashion Week memory forever burned into my brain involving a little NYC black ice and me landing right on my bum. (Quite painfully I might add.) The rubber soles on these are cushy and grippy (not a word?) without looking like some kind of aggressive work boot. I also love the distressed look of the suede and the fact that they actually stay up, something I’m constantly battling with my thinner suede boots. Plus, you can just tell that these are made to last, and if I’m going to spend the money on over-the-knee boots, I want them to last for a few seasons. They’re part of an exclusive collaboration with Nordstrom, and you can get your pair right over here, at Nordstrom online, or at select Nordstrom locations. Today I’m styling these with my favorite high-rise skinnies, but stay tuned this week to see them paired with an easy fall dress. Hope everyone is having a great week!
