Fall is all about the Booties. Like em or not, they’re here to stay…at least for this year and through next year. Booties take a bit getting used to. Do you get them with skinny heels, chunky heels, wedges? Do you wear them with jeans, with a dress, with leggings? Do you wear them tucked into your jeans or rolled up? Some many decisions. So many choices.
Speaking of Booties…it reminds me of a story. Patrick was at a friend’s birthday party. I believe he was 6. The parents were kind enough to pick up my sweet son for the party and bring him home, because Kevin and I had an event to go to and my father was babysitting. A few days after the party I received a call from the boy’s father. Let’s call him “Al”.
Al – Hi Terry.
Terry – Hi Al.
Al – I need to bring something to your attention. My wife said not to bother you, but I know you would want to know this. When we were getting out of the car at the party, Patrick turned to my son (I’m not using names to protect the innocent) and said, “Your mom should shake her booty”.
Silence by me.
Terry – Don’t worry Al, the buck stops here. I will handle this immediately and thank you for bringing Patrick’s inappropriate behavior to my attention.
Al – I knew calling you was the right thing to do.
Did I mention Patrick was 6? He is currently a sophomore at Miami of Ohio and an honors student and on the Dean’s list.
Like son, like mother. Never met a noodle we didn’t like!
Back to real Booties!
Taupe booties will be my standard for the fall. I will angle towards chunky heels, because they’re better for walking about. If I were to be out “clubbing” or out for many social occasions (which I will not be, but if I were), then I like a spikier heel. The higher the heel the closer to God. 🙂
I would wear every pair of those booties. Every single pair!

Ways to wear your Booties: Tucked; Rolled; Cuffed; Layered with socks and leggings; With Tights; Socks; Dress; with a skirt. These are options. Not all options will work for all. I, for one, will not wear with socks, though will pair them with leggings. I will wear with a dress, but only with peep-toe booties. Probably not with a skirt, but fall is young! Again, whatever you feel comfortable wearing, you should wear!
Bootie Looks I Love – I’m posting a lot of pictures here to give you many ideas, so you can’t say, “I would love to wear booties, but what do I wear them with?” This is what I do, I peruse pictures, find looks I like and copy them. Done and done!
This look, I love, love, love.
Army jacket… future blog post. Will be my new “uniform” this fall. With my cheetah booties. Booyah!
Cuffing Jeans the Right way with booties
For me, no socks. That means your booties need to be broken in. If they aren’t, you should use mole skin to line the problem areas and use blister block, to help keep those blisters at bay. You can get mole skin and blister block in the foot care section of your drug store.

Each of these looks seem polished.
Song of the Day: Situation by Yaz
Blue eyed dressed for every situation
Moving through the doorway of a nation
Pick me up and shake the doubt
Baby I can’t do without
Move out, don’t mess around
Move out, you bring me down
Move out, how you get about
Don’t make a sound just move out

I received this text from Meredith the day after:

Have a great weekend! I’m having lunch today with one of my very favorite people! The Best. Day. Ever. continues!
Who am I kidding… I have a “squad”.
This is highly accurate.
