Does it seem to you, too, that leopard is a huge fashion presence this fall? Animal prints have always been a staple in the transition season but this year we are ROARING with animal magnetism. Just ask Katy Perry! The key to wearing animal prints successfully is to do it sparingly as touches to your outfits and not overwhelm yourself with too much print at one time.

Bring on the boots!

My two-tone leather/suede Rachel Comey boots, fall 2011
How I got them is another story!

We’re experiencing the first cool-snap; autumn is here and I found myself pulling out my booties. Although I miss the ease of finding a simple summer sandal in my closet, knowing that I own a pair of go-to boots is satisfying, too. And my boots of choice are the ankle booties. I love boots but they often feel claustrophobic and constricting. The answer for me is always … my casual booties. Easy on, easy off, lower-heeled booties are boots without the commitment. I wore mine without socks, but as the weather cools they work just as well with warm socks. Wear them with jeans, trousers, skirts, and even dresses or shorts with tights – they are versatile and low maintenance. And don’t forget to protect them! Invest in a leather/suede protector and you can transition to the next season with confidence.
