A Few Of The Boots, Oxfords, And Clogs I’ll Wear To Death This Fall…

As someone who likes to be on the more modest side of foot show and tells (few people want to see my bunion and short wide toes – ALL HEREDITARY, MY FRIENDS), I get very excited when it’s not so hot outside and I can don a cute (full coverage) shoe. So today I have a few of my favorites to show you – no tall boots yet, that’s coming later. But good day-to-day staples for most fall occasions.

Blouse | Jeans (similar) | Mules

If you’ve followed closely you’ve seen me wear my Rachel Comey mules for almost five years (they are still available and just so good). Well, these are a wildly more affordable version that I love. AND good news, they are a lot easier to walk in (the Comey’s are still comfortable, but they are at least 2″ taller so less easy to walk in). These are way more “every day” and I could easily wear them all day. Also not shown here are my Nisolos that I had to reorder because my dog ate one of them – but they are EXCELLENT. They are light nude and therefore very flattering and elongating (and so comfortable – I opt for them every time I want the height of a heel but know I’m going to walk a lot).


Admittedly, I am NOT selling those in this shot/outfit. I wanted to just wear the same jeans and top. But I was so excited to order these boots. Now sadly I ordered my typical size (7) and they were definitely too small so I had to return them. Then I realized that I truly don’t need another pair of splurgey boots so I didn’t reorder. But point is – the style of this pair is so cute.

They remind me of Brian’s Redwing boots that he wears every chance he can. I love this mid-heel, how tight the boots get at the ankle, and of course, how you don’t really have to lace them and can use the zipper. Such a good patina on the leather, too. Anyway, I hope I don’t regret returning them but def size up. These would also be very cute with socks, longer shorts, and a fleece – more of the sporty/hipster/hiker vibe.

Rain Boots

I have no idea what I’m doing with my legs in that first shot – I i guess trying to show you how they look from the side?? These are GREAT, especially if you want rain boots that aren’t big old wellies (which I love, but less around-town friendly). I wouldn’t say these are great office shoes, but great for errand running, super comfortable, and obviously very cute.

Chunky Chelsea Boot

Y’all, THESE ARE IT FOR ME. I LOVE these and have worn them so much already. They have that lug-sole look, but it’s rubber and not very heavy. They are Sorels (a brand I love so much) with a rubber base and waterproof leather on top. they look so cute with socks/shorts and tucked up into jeans. They are so comfortable, cute, and waterproof (so I can wear them around in the rain and mud and can just hose off). You’ll see me wearing these a lot this fall/winter.

Kitten Heel Boot

These are my other favorites and I’ve already worn them three times (and that’s a lot considering it’s still summer and I rarely leave the house). They are just really flattering and look so classy, but so simple. That little kitten heel is so cute.

I like wearing these with slouchier pants (think cargo or joggers), you know to comply with the “wrong shoe theory” (which I actually really like).

Classic Chelsea Boot

I’ve had these forever and I appreciate that Buttercup has left them intact. They are just so good, comfortable, flattering, in such a pretty rich color, and classic. (They also make a water-resistant version that’s just as beautiful, FYI.)


These loafers are definitely on the less exciting side, but I’ve found myself wearing them a lot for shopping, errand running (or work if I had an office, obviously). They are really comfortable and slimming.

I, of course, found WAY more on the internet that I loved while I was shopping, but sincerely trying to not buy too many that I don’t need. So instead I just rounded up some other of my favorites. I do wish I had styled some of these for you with the right outfit because context changes the style so much but these are all just good, classic, timeless, comfortable, and guaranteed to look good with most outfits (IMHO). Happy fall to all our feet!!
