get the look -- flat booties.


ATTAINABLE: A + RO Bridgette Color Block Cardigan
www.piperlime.com; sale (now) $89.99
When it comes to wardrobe staples, I love basics that have just a little twist on them.  This tan cardigan is a perfect manifestation of that.  The shape is classic and pretty, but the bright pink adds such a fun pop of color.  This would be so cute with jeans of denim shorts but would make the perfect transitional piece to toss over dresses come fall to stay warm.

Speaking of transitional pieces, I'm truly obsessed with flat booties for fall.  They're so chic and incredibly versatile -- they pair as nicely with skinny jeans and tailored jackets as with tights and corduroy skirts.  In leather or suede, they're so rich and pretty and will be absolutely perfect for taking autumn strolls through crunchy leaves.


Rag & Bone Moto Boots II 
www.shopbop.com; $595
Although definitely a splurge, I have to say that I'm totally in love with these fabulous little Rag & Bone boots.  They're a little tough and would add a bit of edge to any look, from my favorite jeans to a well-fitting sweaterdress.

I think that what I love most about these little Frye boots is how fantastically weathered they look.  The cross straps are fabulous, and the height is simply perfect.  They're not sloppy in the slightest but look just rustic enough to bring to mind images of plaid flannel and hot apple cider.

These suede pull-on Madewell booties are so darling.  They're just slightly Western-inspired but don't go so far as to inspire thoughts of horseshoes and lassos.  The suede is a rich texture and while I love this pretty caramel hue, I'd be hard-pressed to choose between it and the gorgeous gray tone, which would be extra-chic with faded denim.

I tend to be quite wary of zipper details on boots -- they cross the line between cute and slightly edgy and cheap-looking so easily.  Not the case with these Steve Madden booties.  They're super short, making them so flattering and ideal for pairing with skirts and tights, and the stacked heel will add just a little extra height to make sure that you walk tall.

Will YOU be wearing flat booties this fall?
