Fall & Winter Boot Must Haves {Steal & Splurge}

It’s boot season! Check out some of my favorites for this fall and winter season- steal & splurge style!


Fall & Winter Boot Must Haves (Steal and Splurge!) , Favorite Fall Boots!


Happy fashion Friday, dear readers.

To be completely honest, spring and summer is my jam.  I am not one who starts gushing about the glories of fall as soon as the first leaf turns.  I’d love to live in a constantly 80 degree climate!  However, I am also someone who tries to find a positive in any situation.  Fall and winter isn’t all bad.  And I do have to admit, boots make winter more fun.  I’m a certified shoeaholic and boots get a really special place in my heart.

So today, I’m sharing which boots are at the prime of fashion this season!  The ones I have and am looking forward to wearing this year.  As usual, I’m sharing boots at different price points so everyone can get in on the boot loving action.

Favorite Fall Boots

Tall Riding Boots

Riding boots are at the pinnacle of fashion right now, which is amazing because they are comfortable and go with so many things.  I still have my Ralph Lauren pair from last year that I will be rocking, I love these picks as well.


Favorite Fall Boots

Frye Tall Riding Boots, $388


Favorite Fall Boots

Madden-Girl, $59.99

Fringe Booties

Fringe is hot right now and so are booties!  I adore these fringe booties and think they are the perfect addition to your boot collection for this year.  My Mother-in-law gave me a pair very similar to these at the end of the summer and I’ve really enjoyed styling them this fall.


Favorite Fall Boots

Sam Edelman Fringe Booties $140


Favorite Fall Boots

American Rag, $49.99

Tall Black Dress Boots

In my opinion, every girl needs a classy pair of tall black dress boots.  They get your through winter in style and get you out of wearing work pants all the time.  I feel like these are more of an investment piece that is not very trendy, so I’m willing to spend more money getting a quality pair.  I am still rocking a very classic pair I bought several years ago, but I also love these picks.


Favorite Fall Boots

Michael Kors, $294.95


Favorite Fall Boots

Rockport (full leather!), $96

Rain Boots

Not only are rain boots crazy functional, they are actually very much in style right now thanks to the rise of the Hunter brand.  Once again, thanks to my Mother-in-law I’ll be rocking my brown and black Hunter boots all season.


Favorite Fall Boots

Hunter Rain Boots, $104+


Favorite Fall Boots

Kamik Rain Boots, $30+

Cowboy Boots

No surprise here, but I love a classic pair of cowboy boots as a statement piece!  I got my pair in Nashville over three years ago and they are just as fabulous as ever.  A good pair fits well and looks better with time!  I love pairing them in unexpected ways.


Favorite Fall Boots

Frye Cowboy Boots, $298


Favorite Fall Boots

Madden Girl, $25+

    LOVE the roundup! I just went boot shopping this weekend and snagged some riding boots I love, plus a great new pair of black ankle boots. I fought the ankle boot trend for a long time, but now I think they’re my favorite!

      I did the same thing! It was’nt my favorite… but now I’m hooked!

    I definitely wouldn’t mind living in a constantly 80-degree climate either (hello, San Diego! too bad cost of living is so high there :[ )

    I love and adore boots too! <3 (Especially riding boots + rainboots! :] )

    All awesome boots! I have a tendency to splurge on my boots because I find the cheaper ones are just that…cheap. Sometimes a few key items are worth the splurge!

    Girl. My boot collection worth more than my car. Your list is great! I live in my Weitzman 50/50 black suede boots all fall/winter. They’re another great go-with-anything classic.

    • JulieWunder October 18, 2015 at 8:34 am - Reply

      Ohhhh!!! I knew we should be friends 🙂 Those sound fabulous! Mine are probably worth more too-haha!

    I love booties and riding boots! I just recently bought some rain boots that I’m excited to wear more! I loved your picks! Have a happy weekend!

    I’m glad boot season is finally here. I love wearing them with tights and leggings.I definitely love a steal!

    • JulieWunder October 18, 2015 at 8:37 am - Reply

      You can’t beat a sale! I like to pick up the splurge ones at the end of the season!

    I’m a boot girl–I come by it honestly with the horse background! But that also makes me very picky, lol.

    OMG, I am all about boots in the fall, and this is making me want to raid my closet, even thought it still feels like summer here in Central Cali, haha..

    • JulieWunder October 18, 2015 at 8:38 am - Reply

      Haha! I’ll come and visit you! It’s 30-something out there right now! Yuck!

    Love all your picks! Boots are my favorite – I just bought some awesome cowboy boots in Austin! I can’t wait for you to see them 🙂

    • JulieWunder October 18, 2015 at 8:42 am - Reply

      Ahh!! How exciting! I bet they are awesome! Can’t wait to see them!

    Madden Girl has pretty good things, but I’ve noticed they’re not as comfortable as more expensive shoes. I guess we get what we pay for, right? 🙂

    • JulieWunder October 18, 2015 at 10:04 am - Reply

      Sad but true!! It’s hard with boots. If I’m going to wear them a lot for multiple seasons– I splurge.

    You don’t like fall that much? Can we trade places?! It’s probably going to be 90 again here in Texas! I am so ready for boots. Boots are definitely my guilty pleasure when it comes to shoes. I love how you showed a splurge and cheaper version. I really need to get some good cowboy boots while I’m in Texas. Everyone says it’s the best place to get them but they’re not cheap!

    • JulieWunder October 18, 2015 at 10:03 am - Reply

      Yes! You need them. My real pair I splurged on look just as good now as the day I bought them and they are 3 years old!

    I still have the black crunchy looking boots I copied from you Love your splurge and steal ‘

  18. Love this great idea! Love my boots and can’t wait to take them out!

    • JulieWunder October 18, 2015 at 10:02 am - Reply

      Me too! It’s in the 30s here today so I think they are coming out!

    I like your splurge and steal concept.
    Hope you have a great weekend !

    I do love my boots too! and a cute pair of cowboy boots should be a staple! I am definitely thinking some of those fringe booties will be a purchase for me! TGIF!
