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.

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,
