splurge vs. save: boots of the season

Boots? For fall? Groundbreaking…

I know what you’re thinking and it would be a fair thought: another fashion blogger sharing their favorite boots of the season, because, GASP, there’s a crispness in the air, pumpkin spice lattes are out in full force and you cannot stop watching Hocus Pocus: FALL IS UPON US. Throw on the boots, ladies!

But to be even more fair, this season in particular has a VERY strong boot game, more so than past seasons, with lots of distinct trends popping up both from runways and from street style stars. And as much as I love investing in a great pair of boots (with the proper care, they last season over season), I also love dabbling in trends for a fraction of the cost, and with far less wallet commitment.

Case in point: these Zara beauties were part of a recent black out shopping spree. What do I mean by black out shopping spree? Well, I’m glad you asked. It’s basically a temporary lapse in memory in which you open let’s say a marketing email or a social post from Zara (or Mango or & Other Stories etc.), spot an item you’ve been searching for and for the next 10 minutes and 17 seconds, you somehow fill up your cart with things you didn’t even realize you needed. It’s related in nature to the Target Run effect, in which you head into Target for 1 thing and leave with 35 knick knacks, but I digress.

Thankfully, I didn’t regret these boots once they arrived — they’re the perfect off white, slightly slouchy pair, with a comfortable chunky heel that I don’t need to be overly precious about — and trust me, there’s nothing worse than wearing boots around New York that you need to be “dainty” with.

So ladies, keep scrolling — lots of boots ahead, both the splurge versions and the save versions. Choose wisely.
