Our Favorites: Leather Ankle Boots

With it being in the upper 70s and low 80s early this week in Birmingham, it seems like fall hasn't exactly stuck here down in the Deep South. Except for a couple occasions, Katie and I haven't pulled out our tall boots - they don't seem quite right when the weather's been this warm!

Although flats are our usual go-to option during the work week, here are a few leather ankle boots we love for this transitional time. Ankle boots are perfect for in-between weather, and we love how easy they are to finish a look!

Our best tips when looking for new fall booties - think color, quality and comfort.

Color: If you want to invest in a pair, make sure you go for a color that you'll wear often and will match your wardrobe. Rich, cognac brown is a great choice in my book! It matches just about everything.

Quality: Quality is something that is now one of my top shopping priorities. Just because something is on sale doesn't mean you should buy it. Invest in real leather, and it will be worth your money down the road. Look for booties that will last you many seasons. I've had my pair of J.Crew leather ankle boots for about a year now, and with some leather polish, they still look as good as new!

Comfort: If you are splurging a little on a pair of good quality boots, you'll want to make sure they're comfortable for every day wear. Mine have a lower heel, which I like because I can wear them anywhere. It's up to you on the heel height, but your feet will thank you later if you choose wisely in terms of comfort!

Here's a round-up of several of our favorites! (The Madewell + J.Crew styles are even on sale!)
