the perfect boot

A few weeks ago, a friend was telling me about a pair of boots she had bought online. After trying them on and mulling over the purchase for a few days, she returned them. "I just want them to be perfect" - which got me thinking, what is the perfect boot? How many of us have searched for this elusive shoe??

Personally, I like simple shapes and classic details. Nothing too flashy or wild, and preferably something that can be paired with everything. The pairs above are just a few that I'd love to add to my wardrobe.

What makes up your perfect boot? Color, style, boot vs. bootie - gimme your thoughts!

  1. I'm kind of boot obsessed. It all began with a pair I found on a whim in the vintage section of Urban Outfitters in London. I had worn the wrong shoes that day, and bought these because they were affordable. That was years ago, and I still wear them now, after having them re-soled twice. But eventually they'll have to go. I also have a pair of Aquatalia faux-fur lined boots that I totally love at this time of year. Mid-calf, simple boots work best for me. Although I'm drooling over the booties you have up there...

    1. Oh my gosh - that vintage find in London sounds amazing! I love serendipitous purchases that end up being wardrobe staples. :)

  2. That J.Crew Harper boot is amazing! I'm wearing my new Nine West Pattycake boots for the first time. Got a great deal on Black Friday. The zipper on them isn't as cool as the zipper on the Harper, but they have a similar shape and heel.

  3. I can't do booties. I feel like it makes my legs look shorter. Plus my jeans tend to be more "toothpick" (JCrew) and are never TOO cropped since I'm short. I love the Harper boot!

  4. I have a pair of boots I bought last year that have a top you can either pull up to make them knee-high, or put down for more of a "pirate" style (you know what I mean?). I adore them and wear them all the time. I teach 4th and 5th grade girls at church and they all notice when I wear them. I call them my Awesome Boots! They've convinced me that one of the items every woman should own is a pair of "investment" boots - something you can wear with just about anything, that's maybe a little more expensive but you'll have for ages.
