Getting The Boot

    With fall here and winter soon approaching, boots have begun to replace my flats and sandals. But hey, who's complaining? They're such a cute alternative to open shoes, and really calling them an alternative seems like almost an insult!(my apologies to the boot family).
     My guest post on College Prep focused on what shoes I'm wearing this fall, and most of them turned out to be boots! So, I thought a styling post was in order, to share some of the different kinds of boots I love, and a few ways to wear them!

Getting The Boot

The Rain Boots: I've seen people wearing these Hunter Wellington Boots for a few weeks now, and I actually really love them! They're so subtle, yet they just have this look about them that I adore! Maybe its the fact that they're glossy, ready for the rain, and cute! I've seen them in yellow, blue, and red, but my favorite has to be these gray ones. I chose to style them with boyfriend jeans, a striped long-sleeve, and a cable-knit pullover. For accessories, I think that a bag would be enough, maybe with a pair of stud earrings. This outfit is all about minimalism, with small vocal points, and absolutely cute shoes!

The Peeping Boots: I think peep-toe booties are so adorable and stylish! They just add a sort of playful touch to your outfit, and I really like that. For this outfit, I chose to pair the boots with leggings, a lace long-sleeved top (with a tank top beneath it), and a gorgeous cream blazer. To accessorize, I chose a stack of silver bangles, a skinny leather belt, and a studded bag (on my Forever 21 wishlist) to finish the look.


The Grungy Boots: For a day when you're feeling a little wild, I think a pair of grungy/edgy boots are the way to go! I combined these boots with a little military-esque style. I paired them with dark green skinny pants, a sequin tank top, and a cool colored denim top (from Target, where wonders occur). I absolutely love the denim shirt! I chose a light-leather bag and some cool bracelets for accessories.

The Play Boots: Here comes the exciting part! The moment I saw these neon green booties from Modcloth, I fell in love! Highlighters are a part of my every-day life, so how about the idea of making their color into shoes ? I think they'd look great with a pair of leather pants, a green bedazzled tank top, neon green belt, gorgeous neon bag, and neon two-finger ring. It's like a neon party on the streets!

So, which of the boots from above are your favorite?
