cognac ankle boots

I noticed while trying to figure out what to wear the other day that I'm lacking a good pair of cognac colored ankle boots. I have light tan/beige and black pairs but nothing in between. This is a problem, not the most pressing, but a problem none the less. Every girl could use a nice neutral, go anywhere, wear with anything boot. While my natural reaction seems to be to scoop up another pair of pettys, I just can't bring myself to do that. Owning three pairs of the same shoe isn't cool, right?

Needless to say I have now spent a good chunk of time searching the internets for the perfect pair. I found quite a few but as of right now, these Splendid booties are the frontrunners. One of the things I like most about them is the more pointed toe and small heel, perfect long term wear as well as a little extra height. There a very few things I wouldn't dream of pairing them with but today I'm thinking a lovely navy blue midi skirt with an oversized off duty sweater, a calf hair clutch, sparkly jewels and nails, and a classic wool hat. 

On another note, I may need to drop by Madewell and pick this skirt up tomorrow... Happy Wednesday and thank you so much for reading!

  3. Oh my gosh. We are totally on the same mission!! I have been searching high and low for some cognac booties too! I am really loving these splendid ones! I have been contemplating the Sam Edelman Petty booties but I'm not sure if I want a flat or a heel!

  5. Pairing these pieces together would/will create a stylish & city street chic look. I have no doubt you'll look great. Needless to say, this Madewell skirt will come in super handy when you're stumped on what to wear to a holiday party.

  12. These cognac booties are pretty darn perfect!! I know what you mean about having a neutral boot because I'm constantly going back and forth with my black or brown boots. This color is a marriage of both. I say go for it because you will wear these non-stop!
