BOOT SEASON (the only season that is this stressful and wonderful all at once)

Hi my name is Lindsay and I have a boot problem. Ok more like a fall problem- I hoard all things fall as soon as the temperature drops about 10 degrees (ahh yes high of 81- must be fall in DC!) and never use them because as soon as winter hits I go into hermit mode and spend any time outside of work watching Lifetime/Netflix/Sopranos and drinking wine.

All this is besides the point, today the point is BOOTS. I went ahead and ordered these in cognac and didn't like how they looked, and these after I saw them on Amanda's blog and thought "Ooh! Black boots that don't look like I went shopping in Santa's closet!". But both fit funny, and I didn't like the way the brown ones looked ON. So I'm back to the never-ending boot shopping. These are my favs of the moment:


So help. Please help. Where do you buy boots for a decent price? I think I need a real life store so I can try them on (am I the only one who feels like some boots make me look fatter?) and make sure they fit my feet right.

Plus I need them by the time I go on my weekend getaway to Harper's Ferry, WV next weekend (eee!). We booked a dog-friendly house on vrbo.com (similar to airbnb with a few more options) and are getting the F out of this city for a weekend! So, also please tell me good things to do in Harper's Ferry- bonus points if it involves dogs, double bonus points if it involves dogs AND booze.

  2. I find boots at DSW a lot - and they are usually on super sale.

    And certain boots - the way they are cut - make my LEGS look huge, THUS - make me look bigger. It's totally weird.

    I want to get a new pair of knee length brown boots and a couple ankle/mid calve boots.

    All the boots - all the time.

    (I have at least 4 pairs of boots - and I wear them ALL the time)

  6. my most beloved pair of boots came from aldo - similar to these http://www.aldoshoes.com/us/women/boots/tall-boots/33586263-tasha/28 but cuter. they were NOT cheap but i wore those things for 4 seasons (i actually still have them but i think i wore them out last season). i definitely got my money's worth!

  7. they are all so pretty and you are NOT helping my shopping problem haha.
    i have zero luck with boots. i was gonna try justfab this year, but haven't yet. i bought some from.... gojane or something last year and they aren't the best boots in the world. i've heard fabulous things about target.

  8. These are so cute! I have trouble buying them because I have big calves so certain ones can get constricting.

  9. I love boots so much—they're all I wear one the temps dip below 80. Sometimes I have a hard time finding my size (5), so I totally feel your pain. I love Aerosoles. They don't last that long, but they're comfy and they have great sales a few times a year.

  10. I have a really hard time with boots. My calves are really muscular so a lot of times they do not fit over them very well. I have seen knock off's of those Tommy boots at Target and they are super cute! They were doing buy one get one 50% off this past week I dont know if it is still going on?! They also had some super cute booties there that I thought about getting. I have had decent luck at Belks in the past, but I don't think there is one up north. DSW always has cute stuff but I haven't actually purchased anything from there in awhile. Nordstrom Rack has a pair that I am lusting after! I usually have the best luck with their shoe department.
