We’ve officially emerged into the depths of fall. Up here in New England, the leaves are peaking through their transition from green to rich gold, orange, and rouge hues. The weather’s getting chillier and each morning greets us with a crisp breeze paired with sunny warmth to wake us up in the best way.
We love taking advantage of this season any way we can: crunching through the leaves that scatter the sidewalk, admiring the freshly carved pumpkins leading up to Halloween, biting into crisp apples covered in gooey caramel, and strolling slowly through city streets on the way to a friendly (pumpkin-spice-pancake filled) brunch admiring the transitions that surround us.
For these adventures, beautiful, trendy, comfortable shoes are key. That’s why we rely on finding a perfect sneaker and a gorgeous boot to wear throughout the season. One to two pairs of each of these makes it easy to get dressed in the morning: a sneaker and a bootie pairs well with everything, whether you’re getting dressed up for that yummy brunch or looking casual for a relaxed day outdoors.
On our average weekend, we spend half the time in comfort. Whether it’s running around the house readying our homes for colder weather or walking between grocery stores to find the perfect Thanksgiving ingredients, we need a go-to foot hugging shoe.
With trend in mind comes the Zane, a “sneaker boot” that spices up any comfort-driven outfit. Slip on a pair of leggings and a flowing sweater, zip up these sneaks, and you’re out the door and on your way to crossing off that to-do list. We love these shoes as an accent to a sweater dress, paired with drop-waist pants, or jeans rolled at the ankle.
The Kepler has a similar function with a more casual vibe. In a variety of colors to match whatever fashion aesthetic you’re rocking, lace up these sneakers for an easy on-the-go look that never goes out of style.
When sneakers aren’t on our feet, it’s nearly a guarantee that our favorite boots are. One of our favorites this season is the Earth Shoes Sparta, a (comfortable!) heeled bootie that doesn’t even feel like you’re wearing a heel. The unbridled suede covering the entirety of the shoe offers class and sophistication to any outfit. Pair the cinnamon shade with higher, colorful socks underneath for a classically layered fall vibe. Feeling feisty for a date night? Layer black or sheer tights under the leopard-print style.
We love pairing the Sparta with a maroon fall dress (they hug the ankle just right to wear with tights) of the sweater or linen variety. Jeans pair perfectly with these perfect booties; roll them up to further accent the shoes.
Whether you’re hitting the town, heading out to a delicious dinner, or kicking through fall leaves on an errand-filled weekend, a great sneaker and a perfect bootie are all you need for your wardrobe to feel complete.
