New Suede Ankle Boots

More fall wardrobe newbies!  I was so thrilled to find these taupe suede ankle boots when I quickly ran into Goodwill for a vase.  Hubby was patiently waiting in the car with his book.  I made a mad dash around the store and found these fabulous boots (that had been on my wish list) and also a 2nd cognac colored purse that I could not pass up...even though I had recently purchased another one in similar color.  But hubby understood and pointed out that they are slightly different colors and the styles are different so....there is good reason to need them both. haha
So much for my warbling on about becoming more of a minimalist.  I am apparently not yet ready. LOL  It feels like an evolution of sorts.  Could take thousands of years.....  :) 
When I was looking at boots such as these on retail I was noticing that some of the styles sold are dirtied up on the toe....like they've been water stained and worn.  I find this a funny trend, but a welcome one.  Now you don't have to worry so much about something looking a bit worn or scuffed.  It's the style!! haha
These boots had a slight discoloration mark on one side, but I don't care.  As a vlogger I watch declares "It gives it character."  
More pluses for these boots are that they were a good price, felt comfortable, and were exactly the color I had wanted.  They also have a wide, substantial heel that is really very close to being a wedge.  So even though they are higher than I usually wear, I think they'll be okay since it's not a skinny heel.
I'm having lots of fun with fall fashions and accessories!  How about you?  Any favorite pieces or trends you especially favor this year?

  1. Piękne buciki. W Polsce jest dużo deszczowych dni, dlatego takie botki są niepraktyczne, raczej na suchą jesień. Pozdrawiam.

    1. Yes, many rainy days here too. I work in an office that has parking under the building so I don't have to be out in the rain there... so that helps.

  2. You find the best pieces at Goodwill !! These boots are right on trend as I've been seeing a lot of wedge suede boots this fall.

    1. I did feel like I had a winning lottery ticket when I left the store that day after finding 2 items I wasn't expecting. :)

  3. What A Lucky Find! these boots are fabulous and will be a great addition to your style. It isn't going to be easy being more minimalist when DH helps to justify your purchasing... gotta love him for that!
