7 Shoes for Fall

It hit the mid 60s in NY last week. Mama wants a new pair of boots.

There’s a tree on our block that, no joke, is beginning to turn yellow and orange. Last week, there were a few days cool enough that gentleman were donning blazers, and ladies broke out wooly, warm cardigans. August isn’t even over yet, but it’s unmistakable: there’s a distinct feeling of autumn in the air. I, for one, love it. I honestly think it’s a side effect of living in the Bay Area for 7 years, where fall wardrobes are in season virtually year round, but the outfits that make me feel most like myself are the ones I can wear in autumn. On my mind as I begin to gear up for the season? Shoes for fall. Because who doesn’t love a new pair of boots?

I’ve seen tons of menswear inspired oxfords this year, and I won’t lie, I’m kind of not into it (a clunky, blocky shoe on my short frame = clown couture). J.Crew has a more delicate suede loafer that I think makes a great substitute for the trend (the punchy red color helps matters too). They also created this truly incredible glitter pump. I’m usually not so into such whimsical statement shoes, but for some reason, these just felt so fabulous and special. Last year, one of my favorite pair of everyday booties was sent to me by Old Navy. Even with the crazy, snowy winter, they held up beautifully and are SO comfortable — I’m definitely going to investigate these perforated boots this year (I mean, c’mon, you really can’t beat that price).

Are you starting to take note of shoes for fall yet? Has it begun feeling like autumn where you live? Or is it still hotter than the blazes? I say bring on the cooler temps!




And a little PS – Thank you all so much for the kind comments and feedback yesterday! Please continue to let me know if you notice any glitches around the site. xx

    Pretty picks! I do love fall clothing more than any other, and I dig the mix of rich colors you’ve got up there. I’ve really loved the weather this summer, but I think many of us are terrified that if it’s chilly in August it’s about to get arctic in October.

    Also: You said hot as blazes. Your inner Texan is showing:).

    I saw an acorn on my walk home yesterday and there’s no denying it- fall is coming. I’m much more of a summer girl myself, but I do enjoy early fall when you can wear gorgeous pumps in rich colors without freezing your toes off! Those J.Crew ones are amazing. Waiting for them to sell out in 3, 2, 1…

    Love the looks! I fell in love with this pair of feminine smoking slippers at Nine West over the weekend: http://www.ninewest.com/Shindig-Smoking-Slippers/14461422,default,pd.html?variantSizeClass=&variantColor=JJQF8A0_1&cgid=8346239&prefn1=catalog-id&prefv1=ninewest-catalog

    The J.Crew loafers you showcased above reminded me of them.

    Love all of your picks! I’m totally with you on being ready for fall. I may just have to look into these Old Navy beauties. With all of the snow and slush we get in Minneapolis, I need something that holds up!

      Definitely check out their shoes! I was honestly SHOCKED last winter that mine held up so well in salt and slush.

    Yep, I’ve already started gathering inspiration for fall. I loved the weather we had last week. I was able to bust out my jeans which I hadn’t worn in months. Good to know about your Old Navy boots lasting through the season. I will definitely check out their shoe offerings this fall!

    I love fall In Chicago! I always felt like my summer and spring wardrobe outfits really lacked compared to my Fall ensembles and now I know why! I love the way you put it, “Fall is when I feel like myself”. So true!
