5 Boots for Fall/Winter Every Girl Needs in Her Closet

5 Boots for Fall/Winter Every Girl Needs in Her Closet

It has already gotten chilly in Chicago. I haven’t pulled out one pair of boots. I’ve seen people prancing down the street in their nice boots while I’m still walking around in my ballet flats. Somebody be a good friend and tell me it’s time to put them up! I’m having a hard time getting over summer! I was meant to live in a tropical climate!

Since I must let go of summer and get my cute boots out, I might as well write a post about them. There are five boots for fall/winter that every girl needs in her closet.


The Trendy Knee High

A few years ago I bought a pair of knee high boots. They were patent leather and black (bad combination). I wore them a few times under my sweater dresses because they looked too tacky and hooker’ish on me to wear with anything else. This experience taught me to stick with suede/leather when it comes to these boots. Knee high boots can hit that borderline between classy and trashy real fast. But they look awesome with skinny jeans!

Sexy Date Night

The stiletto boot is a versatile boot that goes great with jeans, tights, skirts, and dresses on date night or at any other I’m cute and sexy event. The possibilities are endless!

The classic riding boot works for everyday & date night as well.



Working 9-5

I work in a super casual environment. Whenever someone shows up in a pair of heels; they get the undercover side eye. They spend the whole day stomping across the carpeted floor making that “hey, I want to let everyone know I’m coming” noise. Anyway, these booties are that cute and comfy pair that you wear to work when you don’t want to carry extra shoes in cold weather.

Damn, it’s cold outside

Uggs are expensive, but they are some of the warmest boots I’ve ever owned that don’t require me to spend 15 minutes lacing them up. Don’t even get me on the extra weight that heavy duty boots require you to carry. My first pair of boots that were Ugg-like had some weird funky foam like sole that made me involuntarily do the moonwalk every time I walked into a building.  If you do opt for a cheaper brand; make sure you have a good rubber sole.



Netflix & Chill

This year Netflix and Chill took on a different meaning. But in my book, Netflix and Chill means I get to wear my favorite torn up terry cloth bathrobe along with these cuddly boots. The robe and the slipper boots combined with a bowl of popcorn and a good movie streaming on Netflix make for an awesome night when its 5 degrees outside and a foot of snow.


When I buy boots, I invest a little more money because of the change in weather conditions. Chicago winters are brutal and your girl has to walk in slippery conditions. The last thing I want to do is fall! Ain’t nobody got time for that!


What are some of your favorite boots for Fall/Winter?

    Ha! That Netflix and chill boot is my favorite. I STILL believe Netflix and Chill means knit, sip tea and check out a flick.

    I am not an Ugg fan. I don’t like the way they make feet look. That riding boot is really nice. I would like to get a nice pair.

      I’ve had a few people tell me they don’t like Uggs. I do agree that they make the feet look funny, but they are so comfy and warm!

  3. Chasing Joy says:

    I like knee boots a lot. I am considering some Uggs this year though.

  4. Camile says:

    I live in Chicago too and Uggs are a must! I never buy the super trendy Uggs, I prefer the adirondak style. They are very warm and I like how they look. On another note I am dreading the cold.

      Me too! I’ve lived in Chicago all of my life and I’m still not use to the winters here!!!! Thanks for stopping by!

    Love your boot picks. I’m a 9-5 booties girl all the way! Wish I could rock those stiletto boots.

  6. Ramona says:

    This is a great post. The list is spot-on! The Netflix and Chill boots are my favorite.

    Thanks for sharing.

      I would have to agree with you on that! I love relaxing and pretending like I don’t have a million things to do.

  7. I’ve yet to find a knee high boot that doesn’t make me look like an oompa loompa. I’m so short 🙁
