I recently made by very first fall footwear purchase; and I must say, I am addicted to this current trend of the mini-boot, otherwise known as the bootie.

I always found something disenchanting about the ankle boot — the
compromise between the pump and the knee-high boot that sometimes
mimicked a Witches of Eastwick theme. However with the introduction of the bootie into this current fall season, I believe we have a fashion movement on our hands…or better yet, feet.

What I love most about the bootie is that it provides a clean line from leg to shoe, versus the ankle boot that bunches around the leg.
That look can also be very fashionable, but more prone for casual
weekend-wear—not so much for work-wear. Sometimes even the knee-high
boot at the office can walk a fine line on the corporate dress code. It
is very refreshing to have another shoe/boot option on my wardrobe for
the more brisk months ahead besides the monotonous pumps.

And even better, they are everywhere!
