Leopard Print Booties


Every fall I start looking for a new pair of boots for the season. This time was a bit different because the Rachel Comey Mars boot I bought last year, is still a popular shoe. So instead of looking for something more practical, I started looking around for booties with a bit more sass. If you ever want to know what I do in my spare time, let me tell you, it’s either looking at kittens or shoes on the internet. Well, I kept coming back to the leopard print booties by Stuart Weitzman, they had good heel at 3.25 inches, as I’ve conceded that I can’t deal with anything over 4 inches with the kind of walking lifestyle I have.

Then I had the weirdest day. In the morning, I was craving dounuts from the Doughnut Plant , and a dozen unexpectedly arrived in the office! Then an email arrived from the Stuart Weitzman team that they would send me a pair of shoes from their Fall collection. Dude, I should have been thinking I wanted a million dollars that day, because it was the weirdest day.  So lo an behold, the booties arrived. They were actually better than I had anticpated. The heel is sturdy, yet elegant, they’re comfortable enough to walk around all day, and they’re sassy. The only thing I’m sad about is that they are hair calf, which means they can’t be worn on rainy days, and it’s been raining quite a bit lately. I’m hoping for a rainless winter, because I’d like to get some wear out of these boots.

The cool thing about leopard print, is that it’s a great way to add texture to an outfit. As you saw in my last outfit, I’ve been loving the leather look, and like the my pants, I’ve opted to go with a faux leather pencil skirt by Tinley Road. It’s a great way to add a bit of edge to a classic piece. I wear this skirt at least once a week, and it’s so versatile that for the $79 it cost, it was the best fall investment I made. Here I’ve paired it with an olive striped shirt, statement necklace and a bright fold over clutch by Clare Vivier. The perfect outfit to articulate how I’ve been feeling lately, classic but edgy.

    I like a little pop of leopard. Such a lucky girl to get two delicious things - donuts and bootiess! =)

    Those are fun! I’m inspired to pull out my Cole Haan leopard booties that have been stalwarts for a few years now and try them with a skirt. Is there any way you know of to prevent “bald” spots of wear to the calf hair?

    These are fantastic. I’ve got a low-heeled pair from Sam Edelman and they go with everything. Leopard is the new neutral, don’t you think?

    Ha ha ha, you totally should have asked for a million dollars, or to be married to Jake Gyllenhaal! :) I’m slightly obsessed with leopard print this season, especially shoes. Those booties are killer, as is this entire outfit!
