Fall boot reviews (& booties for narrow ankles!)

how to style ankle boots booties for fall outfits

Boot shopping might just be the trickiest kind of shoe shopping. From finding styles that suit slim calves to muscular calves, narrow ankles to short shins (story of my life), the fit challenges can go on and on! I got to try on lots of fall boots from Sole Society, and am partnering with them to highlight the options that fit the best on me!

Fall-worthy boots:
  • Carillo bootie (pictured in today’s post) – Narrow ankles rejoice! The stretch gore panels mean a closer fit around the ankle opening, with no irritation or rubbing when you walk. These look equally flattering on bare legs or with skinny ankle jeans or leggings. Note the Camel here is actually more like a butterscotch, with a hint of dark burnt orange. The Taupe (currently stocked in all sizes) would’ve been my first choice if I didn’t already own booties in that color.
  • Ravenna OTK boot – As far as over-the-knee boots go, these are very petite-friendly. I didn’t keep these as I have similar boots, but the stretch suede fabric shaft fit very slim on me (recommended for narrow calves), and the height wasn’t too tall at about 2 inches past my knees. There’s a nifty zipper by the inner ankles that you don’t see often on similar styles. The zipper not only helps with getting in & out, but you can also stick your hand through there to pull down the hem of bunched up leggings or jeans!
  • Vixen suede bootie (on final sale) – With a low 1.75″ block heel, these were recommended in my earlier posts as a casual bootie for everyday wear. The cut is slender with a feminine almond toe, so try a half size up if you want to fit socks. The New Camel color here is the closest amongst their styles to a true camel brown (a good dupe for my old booties in this IG post).
Non-boot recommendations:
  • The Katarina low pump (see them on me here and here) is one of my favorite shoe purchases of the year. I’ve heard so much good feedback from those of you who also picked it up! I wanted to mention that there is a new low-heeled style that fits the same, but is a regular pump (good for conservative offices) instead of an open, ankle-strap style.

This scarf was love as soon as I received it – the shape is long instead of square, but more uniquely, the two ends are slanted so it will automatically have that “draped” effect. Usually with a square or rectangle scarf, I have to do some folding and manipulating to get the ends to look nice and layered. The material is a cross-hatch woven texture, and sheds less than most of my other scarves.
