Boots don’t have to be a one season trick pony. I love the versatility of boots, the instant attitude and bad-assness edge they can give an ensemble. Short booties can be paired with denim pants, leggings, skirts, dresses, and even shorts. My favorite casual booties are the “Newbury” by Rag and Bone. The short chunky heel and distressed suede makes them everyday approachable with a little toughness. Valentine’s Day is around the corner. If any of my readers need a gift idea, I wear a 38 European.
