My 6 Must-Have Fall/Winter Shoes

Yesterday I shared my 10 must-have jewelry items and today it’s all about the shoes!  I definitely have boots and booties on repeat during the Fall and Winter, but I’m also a huge fan of my slip on sneakers and leopard pumps!  What are your favorite shoes right now?

Tall Boots

Tall boots are perfect with not only jeans, but also leggings and dresses! I really lucked out on this pair, because often I have to try on at least 5 or more to get the fit, color, and style right. This pair of tall boots are sooooo pretty in person.  I love the almond suede color that is the perfect light neutral to go with so many things in your closet.  The style is clean and unfussy, just a simply stunning boot with a block heel that’s not too high and not too low.  The boot hits me right mid-knee and I’m 5’1.

I scored this pair of short booties at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (best sale ever!) and have worn them nonstop since, even yesterday!  They are extremely comfortable and you can wear them without a sock or with a no-show sock. I love this slate grey, but they also come in other colors.

cognac booties

I really wanted a cognac-colored bootie and found a gorgeous pair of Vince Camuto booties with a v-cutout in front.  Nordstrom has a very similar pair for less also in a cognac color, but a little warmer.  With a cognac bootie, you can wear it with everything from blue jeans to black and even grey.

Hunter boots

If you don’t have a good pair of rainboots yet, I highly suggest investing in a pair.  I promise you’ll be so surprised at how many opportunities to you get to wear them and when you need a pair of rainboots, nothing else will do!  There’s nothing worse than walking around with wet shoes and soggy feet! *I bought the kids version because they fit me well- not too high, and they saved me money! Just subtract 2 to find your kids size!

Leopard Heels

Another shoe I consider a must-have in my wardrobe is a pair of leopard heels. A little bit of leopard goes a long way and a pop of leopard on your feet ups the interest in your outfit.  I wear a lot of neutrals, but I love leopard with a bright color like pink too- very festive and fun!

slip on sneakers

If you’ve been reading my blog for long, you know I’m all about this particular pair of slip on sneakers.  I tried on a bunch before finding this gem!  Not only are they cute with the perforated design, they are super quality, cushiony and passed the ‘walking the streets of NYC for hours’ test with flying colors.  In the summer, I usually wore them without socks, but now that it’s colder out, I wear them with these no-show socks.

What shoes have you been wearing most lately?!  Do you have a favorite pair of slippers?  I’m on the hunt for those now!  We’re waking up to COLD weather and I wish I had a cozy pair to wear right now!

All of the shoes in this post are from Nordstrom, and you can conveniently shop their site from home in your jammies.  Their website is one of the best I’ve found for online shopping and you can’t beat the everyday free shipping and free returns!

I’m off to help the kids take pics with Santa today!  Have a great day!

  1. We are shoe soul sisters! I️ own many of the same pairs and you have highlighted my faves! Hunters, slip on sneaks and booties are my daily go-to’s. I️ just ordered the Lance block heeled booties in black and can’t wait for them to arrive! Thanks for the inspo, as always!

  2. I love how those cognac Vince Camuto Franell booties look! Are they comfortable since they have a 3.5 inch heel? Do they pinch your pinky toe? And do they run TTS?
