Ok, so when I say these are MUST NEED ankle boots, I’m only half serious, because these are all super FUN ankle boots, but like I always say to my clients… start with some basic/neutral shades of shoes or boots first, before expanding out into the super thrilling ones. That way you can really pair the right boots with all the clothing you want and then you can have a party when you’re moving onto your next ankle boot purchase.
Before we move on, I want to acknowledge the new, “ankle boots” title for what we all know these as “booties”. Now, who and when did that change? I’m not sure nor am a history fashion buff for the late 20th century, nor does it really matter, but just for a little tip when you’re shopping online and you’re searching for booties, be aware that many more options can pull up when you use the freshest new term, ankle boots… just wanted to clear that up to make all of your lives less confusing than mine has been with this.
So as I mentioned, starting with some neutrals is always a great idea when you’re purchasing some new boots, but if you want to forego that idea, then I won’t be mad, I won’t even yell, I will applaud you for being braver than me and skipping right to the awesomeness that lies within the patterns, shapes and fabrics of what’s out there to rock your feet with.
Here are a few options I LOVE and wish (and may) end up purchasing down the road because they are all just that good and everyone needs a little spice in their life for their feet.
