Fall is my favorite season for shoes. While I love (and, being a California girl, live in many of) my sandals, there's just something about good boot that adds instant sophistication to any outfit. For #TuesdayShoesday, I decided to do a round-up of my favorites for this season from my closet. I own and love all these boots and booties, so I can give you an honest (rave) review!

First up, these OTK Express beauties. I love that they are slim and don't bunch at my ankles, weigh very little, have a heel thickness between stiletto and block (making them wearable for more than one season!) and have an elastic tie at the top instead of string, so they don't slip down. Plus, at under $100, they're a steal compared to the Stuart Weitzmans we all know and love.

Second are these Steve Madden microsuede ankle booties. These are the "it booties" of the season (and, for less than $75, they're a steal compared to the gorgeous SW's that are their counterpart this year). My favorite things about them are the price point, the comfort level, and how snug and stretchy the ankle shaft is. I'm also on a block heel kick (who isn't?!) and these have the perfect somewhat skinny block.

Next are the softest leather shoes I've ever had the pleasure of owning: the Noa Booties by Dolce Vita. I almost (literally) died when I slipped my feet into them for the first time. They're soft, supple, feel like you're walking on air (okay, it's just a surprisingly springy block heel and the softest leather cushioned sole, but still!) and are currently on sale for 50% off!

Finally are these Vince Camuto cut-out booties that I snagged to transition from summer to fall. While they won't make it in the winter months, they have been some of my favorites for the transition season. I love the block heel, neutral color, and the cut-out detailing adds instant interest. And, as always, Vince makes comfortable shoes. (Obviously. We all know by now that comfort is a must-have for me. I love my shoes, and want to run around in them with a smile all day and all night).

All the shoes run TTS, so I have a 6.5 in all of them, with the exception of the Express boots which only come in whole sizes. I went up to a 7 in them (even though the 6 fit great) so I would have room for cozy socks.

Feel free to message me with any questions you have if you're considering adding one (or all!) these lovelies to your closet. I'm always happy to share my experience so you can make an informed decision!
