wardrobe investment: boots

After the holidays, fall/winter styles usually go on sale and these sales can facilitate the purchase of some high-end, wishlist designer items. This is a good time to check for deals on items that may have been out of reach at full-price and that you couldn't stop thinking about because you just might find it on sale. Some of my best shopping stories come from these types of purchases!

Shortly before the holidays, a classmate and I were chatting about her interest in a pair of boots. She shared that she was willing to make an investment to get a pair of knee high boots that were high-quality and versatile enough to be worn day to night. 

I did a targeted search for knee high boots on some of my favorite websites and found a few pairs that fit the bill of the discounted designer variety and a few more pairs that are tried and true contemporary designer. 

I find black to be the most versatile color for shoes so I stuck with it for my selections. I also prioritized all-leather fabrication. When looking at the design, I thought about what would translate between day and night styling and look good with skinny jeans as well as a knee-length dress or skirt. I ended up honed in on sleek, low-heeled options with subtle flourishes. This is a style that will withstand trends and, with proper care, has the potential to be a closet hero.
