Must Have Basics for Fall

If I had to stick to one pair of shoes during the fall, they would most definitely be a pair of booties…and not just any old pair of booties…They would have to be cute AND comfy. Those two things are pretty much my main requirements for any piece I add to my wardrobe these days. This busy mama simply doesn’t have the time or energy to be uncomfortable. So, Dansko boots have always been favorites of mine. They’re SO comfortable I wore a pair all over London and Paris last fall. So, when it came time to add a new pair of booties to my wardrobe this year, I knew the black Dansko Maria booties were just the ticket. Let’s talk must have basics…


These booties are the versatile kind of footwear that you can rock with skinnies and tee, my mommy fall uni, and dresses alike. For today’s look I decided to pair my booties with my favorite new white v-neck, a Thirty Something Tees score, a long black cardigan and my new go-to skinnies. I scored these have jeans in my last StitchFix box and they’re like butter! Just like my Maria booties…It will be hard to get me out of them the next few months I have a feeling. And that goes double for the tee. It’s ridiculously soft you guys. Basically, I just want to this look to be on permanent repeat. Haha!

So, if you’re looking to invest in one pair of booties and the perfect tee this season. Might I suggest that you try out the Dansko Maria booties and Thirty Something Tees Perfect White Tee? They’re truly  the BEST must have basics for fall in my book! In fact, I wore them with a cardi that Carly sent in my fall TSF Box Service box, as well as a couple of my favorite necklaces and the outfit was just perfect to tackle my weekend errands in!

For more fashion filled fun, head over to Momtrends and Oh to Be a Muse to see what they’ve been styling lately! I bet they shared one or two must have basics of their own! You can add your own post over at Oh to Be a Muse this week.

    Oh how I love a good bootie! I actually just ordered a pair of cage booties for $30 on Amazon and am waiting to see how they look when they arrive! I mean, I’m sure they won’t be Vine Camutos but for $30? My hopes aren’t that high! I’m all for a good knock off! Love the outfit you put together!
