Daily Covet: J. Crew Macalister Boots

It’s time for school shoes!

While hunting for cute shoes for my boys, I instead happened upon these Macalister Boots from J.Crew for me!

Sometimes I am fortunate enough to be able to wear girls’ shoes instead of womens, and these might just be some that I need to invest in.

These glitter boots are pretty practical after all, right?

Maybe not, but that never stopped me before!

Daily Covet: Give Me the Boot(s)!

It’s that time of year again.  The time of year when it’s still 5000 degrees out, and I start making my list for fall.

I do it every year.  And every year, the things I buy sit in my closet for months until it actually gets cool enough to wear something for fall.

Needless to say, I have started combing the virtual shoe department at Neimans, and although most of these are way out of this girl’s reach… I heart them anyway.

Take a look at some beautiful fall boot styles I would prefer not to live without…

Daily Covet: Just Plain Studly

Co-op Studded Ankle Boot, Barneys.com $179 sale

My New Year’s resolution?  Less time in little black sweats.  More time blow drying my hair, wearing mascara and dressing like a grown up.

Does this sound shallow?  Inconsequential?  Easy?  HA!  Walk in this stay-at-home mom’s shoes, friends….

In fact, these shoes from Barney’s.

On Tuesday this week, I went to put on these cute Pilco jeans I procured at Anthropologie, and realized that I just do not have fun footwear to match a chambray shirt, a beige oatmeal swing sweater and my faded rose-colored jeans. I spent much time that day searching online for the perfect boots… and didn’t find them.  But today, lo and behold, adorable boots from CO-OP.

Before you gasp at the 4″+ heels, take a gander at the fun platform… which makes these perfect for flared and my still-too-long Joe’s Provocateur (read petite) jeans too.

It was meant to be.

Daily Covet: All Buttoned Up

UGG® Australia 'Bailey Button Triplet Boot, Nordstrom.com $200

My Uggs have seen better days.  They are my 3rd pair, and because I wear them outside in the rain, snow and ice every year, they tend to get  pretty beat up, pretty quick.

So I have my sights set on my next pair.  This cute pair of Bailey Button boots.  In gray this time, since I wear black pretty much all winter, and I don’t want black because they show too much “slop” from Midwest winter weather.

And I like the 3 buttons, so that it’s easier to tuck in my jeans or leggings!

Santa baby, listen up!

Daily Covet: I wasn’t kidding…

MARC by Marc Jacobs Tie up boots, Zappos.com $295

I tweeted this morning that the cold weather that befell us overnight (it was 70 degrees yesterday!), had me shopping for boots, coats, hats and more fun winter accessories.  And I wasn’t kidding…

My favorite find of the day?  These adorable MARC by Marc Jacobs tie up boots.

I love the wedge heel and the gold detail at the end of the shoe laces.  I would wear these with pretty much anything in my closet.  Well, except my little black sweats, of course!

 

Daily Covet: Give me the boot

I have a very sad, old pair of very loved and heavily worn black knee boots.  I think they have accomplished their mission and are ready to hang up their soles this fall.  So I’m on the hunt for new boots, preferably equestrian-style riding boots.

I tend to love the ones that have a hint of metal detail – or maybe even detail that beats you over the head – so here is what I’ve come up with.  Three of my favorite pairs in black, of course!

Salvatore Ferragamo 'Fersea' Leather Boot, Nordstrom $695.00

Tory Burch 'Aaden' Tall Boot, Nordstrom $495.00

DKNYC 'Cascade' Boot, Nordstrom $159.95

Surprisingly, the least expensive ones are my favorites.  They are a little more casual, have a great lug sole (perfect for Midwestern winters!) and I love the “ruched” look of the shaft.  I’ll keep looking but I think these are a great start to my search, don’t you?!
