I am so excited for fall! Why? Boots of course!
Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love warm weather, but I have this weird obsession with boots. For years, I only wore knee-high boots because I didn’t like my ankles. I’m sorry if that sounds shallow but I had to feel comfortable in my own skin right? I’ve also always had thick ankles and they only got thicker when I had kids. So… knee-high boots were a way for me to enjoy boots without showing off my ankles!
This past year, I decided it was time for me to get back in shape! Okay, that’s not quite right… I decided to get in the BEST shape I’ve ever been in! I set a goal of getting my body fat down to what it was before I had my first kid, and I wanted to shrink my thighs and my ankles. Those are the toughest spot for most women so I wasn’t sure I could do it but guess what?
That’s right, I lost 7% body fat, built a ton of muscle, shrunk my thighs AND my ankles! And just in time too!
So what now?
I’m so excited to share with you my favorite new booties! I originally got these boots before I started my fitness journey (don’t worry, they’re still available on Amazon!) I instantly loved them because of the design and how they elongate the legs. I was excited to wear these even before I was able to slim my ankles down a bit and I think they are great for every body type! Unlike many booties, these don’t cut the leg off right at the ankle… they also don’t cut in a straight line. The shape around the ankle and the placement really makes these a great option for all body types.
I’m wearing one of my favorite jackets from last year. It’s a straight long jacket with a belt that I almost never tie. I like how it makes me look longer and draws attention away from my pear shape. While this jacket from White House Black Market is no longer available, this one is a great copycat!
My pants are modern ponte leggings from The Limited. They are so comfortable and form fitting but nice looking too! (Not like my every day leggings that I probably shouldn’t wear outside the house but do!).
And then there’s the boots! These booties from Nine West have awesome super high heels, a hidden platform and are super comfortable (despite how they look!). Plus, thanks to the really pretty design they don’t make my legs look shorter like most booties would. They actually elongate my legs a bit!
Shop the look!
So what do you think? How do you like to wear your booties?
