Fashion Expansion: Booties

10 Feb

Do you own a pair? Do you wish you owned a pair? Speaking as a shoe fanatic (can you really ever own enough?!), I decided to kick off my “Fashion Expansion” posts with a type of footwear. “Fashion Expansion” is about exploring current trends and finding ways to fit them in with your own sense of style, at a low cost (of course!), because who wants to drop a lot of money on something you’re trying for the first time? Anyway, let’s move on to the actual post.

I’m loving booties as a fun and easy way to change up an outfit. Whether you’re a heels-only girl or a fan-o-flats, there are lots of options out there right now for booties. For as little as $17, you can add a new option to your wardrobe. Tuck your skinny jeans into them or wear them with skirts and tights. I especially liked how Sydney from The Daybook chose to wear them with her jeans rolled up. Granted, hers are more like boots, but I think Option 3 below could work that way as well.

Let me know how you wear your booties!  Personally, Option 2 is calling my name, so I may need to get another pair.

Option 1: Forever 21, $16.99

Option 2: Aldo, $24.49 (Black), $38.49 (Cognac)

Option 3: Blowfish, $39.95

Option 4: Naughty Monkey, $29.94 (Side note: These are wedges, and thus a comfy heel option!)

Here’s how I wore booties last night:

    Hmm, maybe it’s time to bust out of my comfort zone (otherwise known as all Uggs, all the time) and get some booties.

      I can see you in Item 2, Shannon!

    Looks good! I wonder if I could find some to fit that are also comfy? Is there such an item?

      Items 2 or 3 would be super comfy since they’re flats. Item 4 is comfy since it’s a wedge heel if you wanted to dress it up. 🙂

    I have two pair! I can’t bring myself to wear them as a key piece – you know, so people can actually see they are booties, but I feel cool knowing they are. Mine are brown and I am thinking about wearing them with tights and a skirt now! Thanks for the style motivation and inspiration! 🙂
