It’s no secret I love dresses. I wear them year round and a dress is (by far) the type of clothing I purchase the most. Last week I made a quick shopping trip to look for two specific things: black booties and a new pair of pants. Instead I walked out with black booties and a new dress. A little black dress with faux stud details — I couldn’t resist. At least I didn’t get distracted in the shoe section. I was on a mission. And I immediately loved these black, suede booties when I saw them — I knew they would be perfect for right now, as well as throughout the fall and winter. And of course, I thought they would look great with my new dress, which I was already planning to wear that same night. I knew paired together they would make up an edgy fall look. I have already worn these booties with multiple dresses and with leggings and I plan on wearing them with lots of denim over the next few months. Even though I didn’t leave with exactly what I was looking for, I would say it was a pretty successful shopping trip.
