My Go-To Fall + Winter Shoes

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a beautiful day wherever you may be! I am very excited that fall has arrived because I find everything about this time of year so beautiful; the vibrant colors, the cool and crisp weather, and of course, the fashion! Today, I wanted to share some of my go-to fall and winter shoes! These are just a few pairs that I wear most frequently at this time of year!

  • Ankle Boots

I think that ankle boots are my absolute favorite shoes to wear, mostly during the fall! There are a variety of patterns and designs to choose from, and they can dress up any look! I own quite a few pairs, and while they all look pretty different, the one thing they all have in common is that they are heels. I am not a big fan of stiletto type heels, and I often prefer to wear chunky and short heels. I find that they are not only easier to walk in, but they are more comfortable as well. They are just as stylish, and they can be worn for many occasions!

  • Snakeskin patterned boots

Snakeskin has been trending for a little while now, and I finally got my hands on a pair of snakeskin ankle booties! These are so on trend right now, and I purchased mine from Just Fab! They were very affordable, and they are my newest obsession! I plan to wear them all season long! While they are a bit bold, and not typically something I would have reached for, I have completely fallen in love with them! If you haven’t tried out the snakeskin trend, I recommend it! Who knows, maybe you’ll surprise yourself like I did!

  • Knee-high boots

I would say that I wear these more in the winter, however I love that they can pretty much be worn with anything! I style knee-high boots with jeans, skirts, dresses, and shorts! Where I live, it does not get very cold in the fall, and in the winter we will sometimes have pretty warm days! One Christmas Eve, I was wearing shorts and a tank top with the AC on! Knee-high boots look great with almost every fall/winter outfit, and I prefer to wear simple black suede ones. As I mentioned, I like a little bit of a lift, so these have a chunky heel as well.

  • Combat boots

I love the edgy look of combat boots in the fall and winter! I own a pair of brown ones at the moment, however I am hoping to find a nice pair of black ones with silver detailing (feel free to leave recommendations below)! They can definitely look stylish and cute with dresses, shorts, or skirts, however, I enjoy wearing them with jeans the most! These shoes can spice up any look, and even make the most feminine outfit look edgy.

  • Pointed-toe boots

I love a professional look from time to time, and pointed-toe shoes are a simple way to make any outfit a bit more classy. I own a pair of black suede pointed-toe ankle booties, and I find myself reaching for them often. These shoes are very versatile as well! I know that some people are not a fan of this style, however, I like them because they are very fashionable and they can be worn for most occasions these days. They really are shoes that can go from day to night; from the office to dinner with the girls.

  • Flat boots (riding boots)

I was not exactly sure how to describe these shoes, however I wanted to include them because they are perfect for those of you who aren’t a fan of heels and prefer a simple yet cute fall/winter shoe! I have a pair of black flat riding boots that are perfect for this time of year. I do not wear them very often anymore, but they are a great option for those casual fall or winter days. If you do not enjoy wearing heels, these shoes are great, and they can be worn for special occasions or casual days running errands or going shopping.

  • Rain boots

Where I live, fall and winter are not incredibly rainy seasons, however I wanted to include these because I bought a pair of adorable chelsea rain boots earlier this year, and I think they are just adorable! I wore these when I went to France in March. It was a pretty rainy week while I was there, so these shoes were perfect because they kept me dry, and they are very stylish as well. I never thought rain boots could be stylish, but I have found that chelsea rain boots can be worn in rain or shine and with most outfits!

It rarely snows where I live, but if you live in a very snowy area, then of course, I recommend owning a nice pair of snow boots that will keep you warm and dry! There are definitely days when I prefer to simply wear sneakers over any of these shoes, however I would say these are my top favorite styles and pairs!

I hope that you enjoyed today’s blog post! Let me know what your go-to fall/winter shoes are! Until next time! (Check out my Instagram: @sacchere14) for a fun little video I made wearing some of the shoes!)

OOTD: Spring Style

I am very excited about sharing this OOTD because I purchased it while on my dream trip. I am a big fan of wearing dresses, and I absolutely adore this one!

Earlier this year, I went on my dream trip to France! Of course, I did a bit of shopping while I was there, and brought back a few pieces that I fell in love with. I want to start by talking about the dress itself. While I was walking through the Latin Quarter in Paris, a few of the girls and I stopped by some of the boutiques. We were really just window shopping, but when we stopped by a boutique called Côte à Côte, something caught my eye.

I purchased this beautiful dress for €29.99. This high-low dress is perfect for spring, and the colors are stunning as well. I actually do not have a lot of green in my wardrobe, so this was different for me! The dress is also white and gold with a little bit of navy blue in there as well. The pattern reminds me of New Orleans, and the ruffles add to the feminine look. There is also a fabric belt to cinch in the waist.

The dress is by the brand “Chic and Jeune”, but sadly, I could not find this dress online. Unless you live by a boutique called Côte à Côte, I am not sure there is any way you can purchase this exact dress. I apologize about this, however, I found a VERY similar dress that can be purchased on Amazon for around $17! Another similar dress is linked here.

As for shoes, I am wearing my go-to black heels. I love the simple yet elegant look of block heels, and I bought these from Amazon a couple of years ago for around $20-$30. They are by the brand “Madden Girl”.

When it comes to jewelry, I love having a staple piece (or pieces) that I wear daily. I am wearing these 2 gold rings that I have been wearing every day since I was about 13 or 14 years old. My mother let me have them, and I love the look of dainty rings. For my earrings, I am wearing a pair that were my grandma’s. When she passed away, my dad let me have some of her jewelry, and I think that these earrings are beautiful. I am also wearing this gold coin necklace that I just purchased from Amazon. I love the vintage vibe that I get with this necklace! Lastly, I added a few gold bangles.

My Must Have Jeans

I know that for many people, myself included, finding the perfect pair of jeans can be quite the struggle. If they fit your waist, there’s a good chance they don’t fit your thighs… at least that seems to be my problem! My body has changed over the past 4 years thanks to weight lifting. While I do love my legs, finding jeans that fit me in all the right places is still not easy.

Throughout most of my teenage years, low/mid rise jeans were what everyone was wearing. I’d say around 2016, high waisted jeans started to become trendy and everyone was wearing them again. It’s funny how certain trends always come back around eventually.

Since then, I have only been wearing high waisted jeans! I feel that they are incredibly flattering on most people, and they are very stylish as well. Today, I wanted to talk about 2 of my absolute favorite pairs of jeans. These 2 pairs of jeans are very different styles as well as very different prices! I want to let you all know that while denim can definitely be expensive, if you are on a budget, you don’t have to break the bank to find a great pair of jeans!

The first pair I want to talk about are the Skinny High Ankle Jeans from H&M (size 28). I purchased these jeans earlier this year for, get this… $10! I do not believe that this particular wash is still available online, however there are multiple shades! Now, I was skeptical at first because I knew that $10 jeans most likely meant that the quality was not great, but hear me out!

A couple of years ago, I remember buying a pair of high waisted skinny jeans from H&M, and I remember the fact that they were $10 because I still talk about it to this day. I thought that I had just found them on sale, but now I am pretty sure that H&M always has $10 jeans in their stores.  I do think that these jeans are made of a decent quality, but I can only hope that they will stand the test of time. I will let you all know if these jeans don’t last, but I seriously hope they do, at least for a while, because they are a steal! The jeans fit me perfectly, and I have no issues when wearing them! You can also style these jeans in a variety of ways (this is one of my favorite things about jeans). If you are on a budget, I highly recommended looking into H&M jeans because they are so comfortable and flattering. (If you do purchase these, keep in mind that this specific pair are ankle jeans, so if you’re on the taller side, this may not be what you are looking for! H&M has other jeans for $10, so I would check them out!)

Next, I want to talk about my all-time favorite jeans. These are the PacSun Terra Blue High Waisted Straight Leg Jeans (size 26). I bought these jeans for about $35, but they are originally around $60! I never really bought my jeans from PacSun before; partly because they are usually too expensive for me, but also because I really had no desire to go into this store. I came across these jeans while scrolling through Instagram a while back and I fell in love with them.

For all my ladies who lift, these jeans are going to change your life! As I mentioned, my legs have gotten a bit bigger from weight training. While I do love my body and the strength I’ve gained, it has made shopping a tad more difficult, but these jeans are truly a dream!

 I had never owned any straight leg jeans, and the laid back style is new to me, but it is safe to say that I am obsessed with it. Although I love skinny jeans, I am 100% certain that the straight leg mom jeans are taking its place. They are more comfortable than skinny jeans and you can dress them up or down. I personally think that these jeans look best when worn casually. I think that they flatter me very nicely as well.  I have a feeling that I am only going to buy this style from now on!

Since the jeans at this store are a bit pricey, I would try to find discount codes, and keep an eye out for any sales on their denim! If you sign up to receive emails from PacSun, you will get discount codes and exclusive offers, so I would check into that as well! If you are a student at a University like me, download the app called “UNiDAYS”. You simply put in your information based on the university that you attend, and you can start searching for deals on all of your favorite stores!

I’ve always felt that jeans should be a staple piece in everyone’s wardrobe because they are perfect for most occasions and everybody needs that one pair that fits them in ALL the right places (I know I’ve found mine)! If you haven’t found a pair that work for you, check out the stores I mentioned above, and hopefully you’ll find a new favorite in your price range! Thank you so much for reading!
