Boot It Up

There’s no better city  for boots than San Francisco and it so happens shopping for the perfect pair is a lot like searching for the elusive Mr. Right  (wouldn’t life be a lot easier if men were lined up on a sale rack for heel-to-heel comparison?).

Too short. Too loud. Too off-color. Too difficult to care for. Too cheap. Too clingy in all the wrong places. Better suited for your best friend. Oh, and your mom hates the way they slouch and thinks you can do better.

And then, just when you’re feeling like you’re about to give up (though you never really give up, you just say you will), into your life walks the pair that makes you glad that you held out this long and proves that, no, you’re not too picky you just have excellent taste and know what you want, thank you very much.

You know it when you find it because they’re unusually comfortable and when the salesgirl tells you they’re designed to stay with you for a lifetime, your commitment issues don’t surface.

For me that warm feeling comes from Michael Kors’ Kincade boots in  buttery-soft suede.  Michael Kors boutiques are popping up all over the Bay Area and I’ve quickly fallen in love with all the pieces they carry. I scored these in an of-the-moment—but still classic—shade of grey that compliments any wardrobe, whether it’s boho or rock and roll. The design allows you to push them down for more of ankle bootie feel or yank them upward toward the knee. Rock them with skinny jeans in faded charcoal or with a short dress in a curve-hugging material to get noticed.

Be Tardy to the Party in Bold Red Boots from Marc Jacobs

marc jacob redPatent leather boots and booties are here to stay for another season, so make sure you pack  a punch with at least one pair in a bold cherry red.

These Marc Jacobs patent leather boots caught my eye recently, a post break-up mood booster that are sure to accompany me for a few low-key parties and events this season. It was pretty easy to say bye to the recent beau when I took these eye-catching boots for a test drive (walk?). The kitten heel makes them a super-comfortable pair for all-day wear, and the slightly upturned toe gives me a break from my lineup of pointed toe (and often painful) pumps and boots of the season.

These boots have a little Brit-rock chic in them, a simple but luxurious pair of gleaming boots that will brighten up any gray day this season and pep up a neutral-colored outfit in a flash. I’m pairing these with dark wide-leg denim jeans, black pants and black skirts this season for a fresh and flirty look that’s party worthy but also not over-the-top. Try these on for size if you’re nursing a broken heart or just need looking for a fresh new addition to the shoe closet. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
