They say the first step is admitting it.

 

Okay, here goes, “My name is Jane, and I have an addiction to boots.” I love them. I obsess about them. I even crave them. All different kinds of boots, from booties to thigh highs, flats to 5 inch heels, and chunky to sexy!

 

 My go-to Alexander Wang military boot, to pair with anything from edgy dresses to skinny jeans.

A few of my STAPLES are linked in this post, so you too can begin to form your obsession — or just a casual relationship with them. That works too. 🙂

 

Also, you don’t need to splurge for the most expensive version of each shoe. There is usually a less expensive version somewhere on the Internet… so just send me an email (through my Contact page) if you’d like help searching! It takes diligence. The ones I’ve linked in this post are the shoes I wear in each style!

 

The right boot can be EVERYTHING to an outfit. The simplest pair of jeans with a basic tee shirt? Add a pair of boots with a biker jacket or bomber? Boom! A simple black dress with an edgy booty and a statement necklace? Done!

 

Now I’m not saying you have to go crazy with it, like I have. But a couple of key pairs will take you far.  I have found that I wear my fun edgier booties and my high sexier  booties more than anything else in my closet.

This Vince cut-out sandal is a must-have to wear with jeans. My daughter stole mine a few months ago (or… maybe I gave them to her…), and for a long time they were my go-to’s!

Those, my friends, are an absolute MUST! And, if you don’t already have them in black, get them in black! After that you can go crazy with all of the fun colors and styles this year!

 

Hello, bright blue velvet short boots and bordeaux suede thigh highs! Say hi to the open toe boot and the lace up combat!! OMG the possibilities are endless!!

 

In love with my Stuart Weitzman over the knee Highland Boots. Perfect to pair with jeans, or to wear with a dress like I did on Thanksgiving, pictured below!

So, about that addiction? Not ready to give it up. Not now. Not ever.

 

Your thoughts on boots? I’d love to hear!
Always love my Pedro Garcia Open-Toe Booties!

Beyond obsessed with my Alexander Wang Studded Leather Tilt-Heel Booties, and basically wear them with everything!boots8
These Alexander Wang Kori Chelsea boots could go with absolutely ANYTHING. I like wearing them with this blush tone outfit to give it an edgy pop.

These are just a few of my favorites… lots more boots posts to come! Any other requests? Would love to bring you any topics that you are most interested in… of course, centered around FASHION!

    I would like to know more about sheer fabrics and how to wear them and what brands are the best. They look so swanky…as well as comfy and cool! . They seem like the perfect way to stay cool without having all body parts on display…

      Well hey Janet Lynn!! I think you are talking about the sheer skirts that are out right now?? I love seeing them over a pair of ripped up jeans or jean shorts! If you are so inclined you can even put them over a bodysuit, but that is pretty daring. Instead of looking for a specific brand, go to some sites like Polyvore, Shopbop or google sheer skirts and all kinds of sites and stores will come up! I don’t know how cool you will stay but you will certainly look cool!

        Great, thank you! I loved your latest blog, my favorite so far. I am all about sneakers and already purchased the Adidas white leather with black stripes you featured. Keep me styling!

          Thank you Jan!! I’m so glad you got those Adidas! So cute and so reasonable!
