The hint of warmer days outside is only half-appreciated. As much as I would enjoy not wearing earmuffs to check my mail, the end of winter means the end of boot weather. Kind of.
Enter the always-helpful bootie.
My trusty brown booties have been a season-less staple in my wardrobe since Brown Shoe Company gave me the gift card I used to buy them. But, alas, they have reached the end of their journey. After catching the heel while being forced to run — long, unhappy story regarding a questionable parking lot gate — the shoes are no longer stable and must be… sob… retired. And by that I mean thrown away, because they are a no-joke hazard.
Thank the fashion gods, there are replacements available.
Studded, zippered, perforated, buckled, fringed… Now, how do I pick a favorite?
