Warmer weather is upon most of us… even though it’s already made its way to Austin and I am MORE than ready to start transitioning my wardrobe to Spring. One of my favorite warmer weather transitional looks is when the weather is nice enough to throw on a pair of booties and shorts with a cami layered under a cardigan. It’s literally a fool proof way to layer and look chic yet staying the perfect temp! Even if you’re not a shorts kinda gal, throw on a pair of jeans like I’ve shown in this blog post. The cami + cardi layered look has been one of the most popular of the season and I really don’t see it going anywhere, even into summer. Maybe it won’t be full on wool or cashmere cardigans but layering bralettes under tank tops will still be all the rage!
If you’re anything like me, getting dressed up is somewhat of a nightmare. Living in Austin doesn’t really help the fact that no one seems to dress up in this town. I’ve noticed myself living in a great sweater, skinny jeans and booties. All day everyday. Each day I will walk into my office and see all of these amazing heels and OTK boots that would look totally hot to go out in, but at the end of the day, I’d rather wear the same ole’ looks that keep me comfortable. This winter was one of the first that I really stocked up on booties and actually got my money’s worth out of all of them. They were literally my go-to every single day, no matter what the occasion.
With that being said, it’s no surprise that I am doing an entire blog post dedicated to BOOTIES under $100! There are so many sales going on right now but all I am gravitating to are more and more booties. Why?? Because I know I will be wearing them straight into the summer and how can you beat these amazing prices?
Below, I’m sharing my 10 favorite, affordable booties. I stuck with more of a neutral color palette so that each pair can easily be matched with anything and everything. Something that helped me out as a stylist and that helped me out getting myself put together was shoes are some of the easiest accessories we will ever own if we pick the correct colors. There’s no need to buy 2-3 pairs of the same shoe in different colors if you have one great color that will go with all of your clothing options. Booties make a great basic and can be worn season after season and even into warmer weather.
P.S. Austin friends… SXSW IS coming up and you know almost every female attending is LIVING in a comfy pair of booties! We also all know every cute, in-shape, skinny girl will be sporting their short shorts, crop tops, and a cute pair of fringe or feather booties! So why not try and fit in?! Hahaha, I know I’ll be attempting to pull off that look minus the crop top and super short shorts! Still not even looking remotely close to how I did when I was cool and in my 20s.
