Booties to Boot


{Skirt: Target. Booties: c/o Marshalls.}

As soon as a new season rolls around, there’s that one thing you race out to buy to lock in the fact that a new fashion season is upon us. For me, it’s always a new pair of shoes. And come fall, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on booties. Yes, booties. That trend is still going strong. And trust me, with the slew of trends out this season, everything from burgundy bags to cobalt blue dresses and emerald green accessories, locking down just one thing to kick off fall wasn’t an easy task. For me, it was love at first sight when I spotted these black booties at Marshall’s. The store asked me to find a piece that would easily transition my wardrobe into fall, and for me, these booties were it. And for just $60, too, more than $40 off the retail price, it was a done deal. I’ll be wearing them with dresses, skirts, shorts and jeans all through the season. And I was proud to wear them as part of the Fashion For a Cause Campaign this year. Yup, these booties were made for walking.
