Color me Flummoxed (A fashion post)

A while back, I posted this about how much I hated the booties and ankle boots that were coming into style.  I really hated those things.  And I mean LOATHED with the purple passion of a thousand  violent deaths.  But something has happened... Perhaps it's because I regularly read fashion magazines and websites and have thus been slowly brainwashed, or maybe I'm finally getting my style back after having babies.  Who knows, but suddenly - I LIKE THEM.  No, I love them.  Bryce told me I could pick some boots on clearance since every Fall I swear I am going to get some nice brown, knee-high boots, but the ones I want are either too expensive or I end up hating them after all and taking them back.  Then it occurred to me that I only wear them with jeans anyway, so I was looking for a cheaper alternative.  I found these and then there are these. And I think they are Friggin' Fabulous with two capital Fs.  And - OH MY GOSH - I must own these.  Don't get me wrong, I still hate peep-toe booties.  And I still love some good old Western brown boots and high fashion knee-highs, but until money is no object they aren't going to happen.  You can disagree with me, I'm okay with that.  But next Fall, I'll be sporting a pair of these bad boys.  Now to decide which pair I want...

I am with you on the whole, wanting to get some EVERY year, but for some reason I never do! Here's to you finding that perfect pair!! Here's to us all looking smashing next fall!

And I have to say, as long as what shows is cute, then it doesn't matter how high they are, maybe that is why the peep toe booties kinda make me puke in my mouth a little bit. Yuck.

I am coming around on the ankle boot, too. I agree that I still hate the boot peep-toe thing, but I think I also want a pair of ankle boots. I have tried on so many pairs of knee high boots that I ended up not liking it's ridiculous. I'm thinking a pair of ankle boots would be easier to be happy with. Perhaps we should take a shopping trip?

Still not sold on the ankle boot. I do kind of like the 3rd pair you posted. I'd wear those with jeans, but am still iffy on the whole wearing them with tights and a skirt look!

You should still totally get them! (Plus you know you could definitely pull something like that off whereas I'd look like I was trying too hard.) :)
