bootielicious (i couldn't help myself)

 

one thing i love about fall is boots. and one thing i love about spring is booties. i love 'em so much that i marched up the block to gravity pope, tried on a $600 pair and thought, i could justify these, right? you know the expression "my eyes are bigger than my stomach"? it's more like "my eyes are bigger than my bank account" when it comes to booties. so instead of the gorgeous $600 acne boots, i left with a much more reasonably priced pair of filippa k's. crisis averted...ish.

if you can't stomach the term booties, you may prefer to call them ankle boots. or maybe even shoe boots. but by then you might as well just call them shbooties, right?


i mean...how much do you love all the peach booties?
