Can I just start out by saying how excited I am that it is FINALLY feeling like Fall in Austin?? I mean for Texas, that is completely unheard of in October! I’m mainly extra excited because this weekend is DogToberFest and it is going to be such a beautiful day if it doesn’t rain… Sadly, we’ll be back to the upper 70s and 80s in a few days but I am overjoyed that I can step out of the house in my Fall uniform without looking completely ridiculous! When the weather gets chilly enough I live in my chunky sweaters, skinny jeans, suede booties and an amazing hat!
Speaking of suede booties… Lucky Brand has totally blown me away with their Fall collection. I found these stunners online at Zappos a couple of weeks ago and it was love at first sight. 😍 Shoes are some of my favorite pieces to splurge on, especially during the cooler months so I definitely try and choose wisely before I splurge on a gazillion boots and booties. It’s just like my sweater post… I would literally buy tons of shoes and end up with too many similar pieces that I would never wear. I am always looking for quality pieces that I can easily throw on with any and every outfit if needed.
Of course, there are so many suede bootie options so how do you choose?? What I loved about this particular pair was the chunky block heel that isn’t overly tall. They were a comfortable height and the color is perfect. I am always looking for that perfect tan suede that isn’t too, too dark or too soft. If I am looking for a casual suede I don’t want something that is on the softer side. They are too dressy and will get dirtier faster. The good thing about this pair is that they can be dressed up or down easily. I absolutely love the slanted ankle detailing that dips down lower on the sides. You’re probably wondering why this even matters, so let me tell you. You won’t have the cankle look this way. If the bootie is lower on your ankle you will have the illusion of longer legs and slimmer ankles in your skinny jeans, dresses or skirts.
If y’all aren’t familiar with Lucky Brand, they were literally my go-to brand for years and years. I’m serious though. I know most of y’all might know them for their denim, but they have some great booties for this fall season. I am an 80s baby and they began crafting great-fitting, vintage-inspired apparel in Los Angeles in 1990. Perfect timing for my teen years and now into my 30s I get to wear some gorgeous shoes! They are constructed beautifully with authentic hardware, personalized touches on each piece and playful details that convey their iconic free spirited all American vibe. Even after all of these years I am still amazed by how much they have grown in the fashion market and will still continue to be a loyal customer!
