Ah, September equinox has come and gone.  And with it, it’s left us with cooler temperatures and good reason not to shave our legs (hint: pants).  With it, however, we’ve been left in a state of confusion when it comes to clothing ourselves.  We’re stuck debating whether something is hashtag too soon or just holding on to a feeling.  No one wants to be the girl wearing her winter coat on the first day of school, nor do we want to be the girl clinging to a croptop and a dream.

And this doesn’t just fall under the category of clothing.  One must take into account her footwear.  Sandals seem to be desperate and tall boots just appear a bit Pretty Woman as early as October 1st.

What is the only alternative?  The perfect booties.  Namely, the Chelsea Boot by Ballettonet.  A simple, yet sophisticated flat bootie designed in collaboration with Jasmin Howell (you may know her as Friend In Fashion), this shoe can easily transition from day– with a perfectly distressed pair of denim trousers, to evening– with the most conscious of bodycon dresses.  Dressed up or dressed down, high shine or matte sophistication, this boot will impress if not not only for its design details but for the fact that it’s a limited edition piece- only 100 pairs made entirely in Italy by the Baccaro family in each style.

I Shoes You

When the weather has become about as indecisive as a woman in an ill lit dressing room trying to decide between two different denim washes, you need a shoe that suits your mood.  The Siegerson Morrison Belin Bootie is a perfect anecdote to the everchanging temperatures of early fall.  This is around the time I start to feel sad for those in San Francisco who deal with bipolar weather ten months out of the year.  When it’s time to trade in the sandals, but you aren’t quite ready to dig the big boots out from underneath the bed’s storage boxes, this bootie proves to be a clever transition for your toes.
