It finally feels like winter out there! I can’t believe it! Christmas day here in Massachusetts was a crazy 67 degrees! I was wearing flip flops! (So there! To those people who said I couldn’t wear flip flops of year long! Take that!)
Well- in expected New England fashion, that was only 5 days ago, and now its a whopping 28 degrees today! Needless to say, I am not wearing flip flops today! Nope, I am wearing boots! I must say, I do love love love boots! They are one of my favorite accessories for the fall/winter season.
I have rounded up 5 pairs of boots that I think are fabulous- AND they are on sale! How fabulous!
First- from Lane Bryant. Current price $39.99! (What a steal!) Get them here while they last! Currently available in sizes 7W, 8W and 9W on their website. I snagged a pair for both me and my mother! I bought these in store, with my feet I always have to try on shoes because I never know how they are going to fit. For these shoes, they happily have plenty of room and plenty of width. I would almost say they are a bit big, but with heavy socks I don’t think it will be a problem. Also I always tend to go with a more lace up boot because they are more likely to fit my high instep foot!
This is more of your traditional winter boot- very practical. However the fur lining is only on the top portion- making it soft yet fashionable. Would have been nice to be fully lined- but for this price I can’t complain.
The next pair of boots I love are the Linen Tall boots from Avenue. Get them here! Now these boots are currently listed on their website on sale for $40.00! Right now they are available in sizes 7W-12W. I love tall boots, but my biggest issue, (no bun intended) is my calf! Usually for me, the “wide calf” is still not wide enough. In that case I usually opt for a boot that has some kind of stretch panel or insert in the back.
Avenue tends to carry these kinds of boots (with stretch inserts) which allow for a little more ease. I do love the look of these boots- they are so chic! The encased bottom is perfect for functionally of all whether- snow or rain. I just hate when my feet get wet. My issue usually is because of my high instep, I cant get my foot into the boots. But for this price- I just might try!
The next 2 pairs of boots are from Torrid. First are these Multi Buckle Strap Tall Boots- available in both Brown/Tan and Black. Currently priced at $72.50 and available in sizes 7W-13W. Torrid makes shopping for boots a bit easier by listing out the calf measurements of these boots for each size. This helps a ton, especially if shopping online. I mean, think about it, when is the last time you actually measured your calf?
Now I am in LOVE with the look of these tall boots. The tan to me reads a bit more casual, I imagine a pair of skinny jeans and a dark grey leather jacket for the every day look. The black option brings out the rock star in me! The black pair are chic with a gothic flair. I would wear the black ones with my skull dress- get the black boots here, and the skull dress from ASK Fashion here. Get the tan/brown boots here.
What are your favorite kind of boots? Do you like tall boots or short boots? Straps or lace up? Or Both? Boots by far are my favorite shoe. All of my boot choices are flat bottom boots- IE no heel. Nothing against boots with heels- I just am more likely to fall over and hurt something with them. I love looking at them, but wearing them is a whole different story.
You know what I love more than boots? Jackets! Did you know I am launching a Plus Size Jacket line next fall? Sign up here and get the latest news, updates and the behind the scenes of building a Made in America brand! www.rose-riot.com
