Almost Time for Boots

Well, it's not actually cool enough for boots-wearing here in Silicon Valley. But September 1 is time for Sophistique Noir's Monthly Theme, which is Boots!

It took me a while this week to decide what pair of boots to wear. I love them all, but, being still pretty summery outside, I wanted to craft an appropriate outfit that wasn't super autumnal. There's my short red Aerosoles (would have been comfy for walking to/from the bus),  my classic gothy bat-buckle boots (most appropriate to the theme), simple black buckled ankle boots (also good for walking), fuschia crushed velvet boots (hmm... maybe not until later in the year), my beloved Clarks riding boots (a bit too fall, but so super comfy!), & the tall burgundy suede boots (couldn't remember how walkable those were). There's probably a few others in the back of the closet that haven't seen the light of this blog yet too. But I finally I settled on this purple pair (which sadly need a trip to the cobbler -- the soles are about to come off!).

What I'm wearing:
Black silk sheath dress, Target
Black & white print cardigan, Black House White Market
Black tights, Calvin Klein
Purple faux-suede boots, Roman's
Black, silver, & pearl necklace, Aldo Accessories
Purple & pearl dangly earrings painted w/tiny bats, made by a local artist
Gunmetal cocktail ring, gift from Kendra
Purple lipstick, Makeup Forever

Oh how I long for actual autumn so I can properly wear boots & tights! But this is a nice little taste. Thanks for the theme, Victorian Kitty :-)


  1. Your purple faux suede boots are much steamier/gothier than mine, oh well! But I loves me my purple faux suede bootses...

  2. You are so right; September is still quite warm, especially on the West coast. I didn't really think about that until after I'd already put it up for a vote. :)

    Your description of your boot collection is so enticing!! I'm looking forward to seeing the whole lineup throughout the fall. This pair is so adorable, and of course I love the color. They match the Monthly Theme icon so nicely! ;-D

  3. *gasp* Purple! I LOVE your purple boots!

  4. Ooh! I love the boots! I seriously adore that shade of purple. It's so pretty :) And I love how all your accessories, right down to your nail polish and lipstick, match your boots.

  5. Yay purple boots! They give your outfit that double-take quality.

  6. Burgundy suede boots! So awesome!! I love these! Love the colour and the shape of your boots. I will take a look at the other pairs you mentioned.

  7. You have a nice boot collection. I also really like this cardigan.

  8. I *love* those boots! It's still too warm for boots over here on the East Coast too, but I can't wait until it's cool enough to start bringing mine out.

  9. I am so jealous of your whole boot collection, but especially these! So purple, so fancy.

  10. Thank you all for the nice comments! Bring on boot season :-D

  11. Amen! I've been wearing boots for the last few weeks here in Florida.

  12. I like big boots and I cannot lie ;-)
