Hey guys, thank you for visiting my site again! Keep reading & don't forget to subscribe (thank you to all of you who already have -xoxo). In this blog post not only do I show where to buy, but I will also respond to the most frequently asked question I get via snapchat/instagram/FB which is how to wear a bootie, and what type of bootie to buy~ Keeping scrolling and reading to see my answer!
I love the color black, especially black boots! I am embarrassed to say how many black boots I own, but when I find a chic, classic black boot, I just can't resist! They are a must-have fall/winter staple and are easy to dress up or down. My fall/winter wardrobe is 70% black; black jeans, tops, turtlenecks, sweaters, and coats. I promise I am not a widow, lol- I just love how elegant black looks! My pics below are proof of how easy yet chic le noir (the color black) can be. I added a cheetah print clutch to add some pop in my outfit. That is the beauty of wearing mostly black- you can accessorize with anyyyy print or color! Outfit details are at the end ;)
RESPONDING TO YOU GUYS:
This was an easy outfit to put together! There have been a some wonderful followers that wanted tips on how to wear black booties, and which one is the "perfect" black bootie, here are my answers:
HOW TO WEAR:
A skinny-fitting Jean (any color) is always great with booties, and if you are in doubt what to pair it with, just find a black top/sweater and viola~ you have a easy chic outfit! I personally love turtlenecks, I think its very Milan Chic, and love the European feel of a simple turtleneck with any winter/fall outfit, or like in this case with a long black coat. I am pretty sure many of you know this already, but black also hides a full tummy for those days when you ate a big burrito at chipotle lol or for date night at the Brazilian Steakhouse ;)
WHICH ONE IS THE RIGHT BLACK BOOTIE?
Well this all depends! You have to find your personality in clothing to find the best type of bootie. For example I LOVE the Euro-style square heels, and pointy toe, but you may not. There are many great rounded toe booties, stiletto booties, and other combos to choose from. I always have a rule, if you are going to invest in a great leather bootie make sure you can wear it with more than one type of outfit (like work and date night, or school and work, etc..). Comfort is also a biggie for me, I have kids and an active work life, so I need to make sure my boots are great for walking. When you have a great pair of black boots, you can literally throw them on with anything.
As you can see below this outfit was comfy enough to walk around with my kids on a family outing, but I could also wear this on a movie date with my fiancé. Versatility is key for me. Since I am a woman of many roles, I need to have wardrobe that is appropriate for most daily activities/events.
