Listen, I love me some BOOTS  — specifically, ankle boots. I don’t care if they’re (faux) snake skin, leather, or glitter; if they come in a size 9 there’s a huge chance I won’t be able to resist.

What can I say? I’ve always been a boot girl & not going to lie, I love each pair like I would a child (is that weird?) because they have their own personalities, memories, and feelings attached. Maybe I should be a featured guest on TLC’s hoarders — but, at the end of the day, I believe that ANY outfit crisis can be salvaged with a trusted pair of boots.

While they seem to thrive during the cooler months, a good pair of boots is an ESSENTIAL item to have in your closet year-round. Throw on a fun pair with your favorite high-waisted denim or vintage maxi-dress to update your summer wardrobe. I’ve broken down a guide to my favorite styles below!

Ah, yes, the classic black bootie. I believe this is where everyone should start when curating their boot collection (& yes, I totally broke my own rule here, because my first pair were these awful tan ones, but I’m saving you from that same fate!). From the classic Doc Marten to the drool-worthy Balenciaga pair, these are the easiest starting point for any shoe collector.

From there, you can begin to build your collection however you like — but I suggest slowly working to create a workable vault of classics and expand from there. Listen, you may want a pair of those pink booties (& they’re coming soon, I promise!), but when it comes down to decided where your money should go, you’ll get more use  out of those snake skin ones than the sequin platform ones. I’m also a huge fan of white boots & have several variations of the simple white boot!

This next section is just a personal favorite, so I thought I’d throw ’em in there  — STAR boots! I’ve got several pairs of star boots that range from hot pink glitter to black with holographic stars that reflect in the light. I’m a star girl, & they’re always my favorite addition to any outfit.

After you’ve got the basics taken care of, then you can begin to add a few BOLD statement booties to your growing collection. These add the perfect pop of color to any neutral outfit & create the perfect statement. From metallic, satin sock, or velvet, a bold print in an eye-catching color will keep the compliments rollin’ in,

    Fun! Living in South Florida we get excited about the idea of wearing boots/booties but sometimes it’s just too plain hot, and people look at you like you’re crazy. I love some of the boots in this post though!
