These boots were made for STYLE!

I had a conversation with my bestie about boots that inspired me to write about boots. The trick is to not over think them. And make sure that they fit well and are comfortable. Boots can be tricky to style and I know that I have a lot of friends who struggle with them. I think of boots as belonging to two camps: short and tall. I tend to encourage people to lean towards classic and simple silhouettes with boots. There’s no need to go off on a trend roller coaster for something so expensive and, if we are talking tall boots, so big. I like classic looks because they are way more versatile and the boots can work with the outfit and not against it.

Alright, that’s an exaggeration but I bet someone there was thinking about leopard boots… Paige? No? 🙂

Tall boots are the easiest because they are so classic. You can toss them on with a dress or a skirt and bare legs and look fantastic — even if it’s not totally cool yet.

If it gets chillier, you can add jeans or leggings or tights…

This one above is probably my favorite look — I love the simple elegance of it. Mom, what a great outfit for NYC?


Short Boots are actually my favorite. They tend to be a little more funky and frankly, they aren’t as warm, which is always a problem for me. Here are some with skirts…
