At the top of my fall and winter wish list this year are boots. I wore out my favorite pair of riding boots last winter, and have been looking for the perfect pair this year. Nice quality riding boots are expensive, but I think it's one of those items that's okay to spend a little more money on. At least, you can wear it for two to five years.
I love wearing boots during the cold months, and practically live in my UGG boots in the winter. The Boyfriend got me Hunter rain boots for Christmas last year, after I complained too many times about getting my shoes ruined in the rain.
I try to save my riding boots for weekends and would love a pretty pair of ankle booties for cold nights out on the town. Here are some of my all time favorites and some pairs I'm lusting after at the moment.
UGG Australia boots
In my experience, people either love UGG boots or hate them. Yes, they are a little chunky, and unfortunately some people think it's okay to wear them with shorts or a skirt (by the way, it's NOT okay. Not. Ever.), but I think they look great with some leggings or skinny jeans. They are extremely comfortable and warm and, personally, I don't think I can ever own too many pairs.

Hunter rain boots
Before I got a pair of rain boots, I used to want to cry every time I had to walk to the bus stop to go to work and it was pouring down rain. I knew I had to get a pair of rain boots to avoid having to throw out a pair of shoes every two weeks, or having to work all day with cold, wet feet. I set my sights on Hunter Wellies.
The original Hunter boots come in all the colors of the rainbow, and at first I wanted to get them in red or green, but unfortunately the original Hunter boots are too big around my legs. Luckily, they also have the more fitted and stylish Hunter Regent collection. So I picked out the Hunter Regent Neoprene. They are slimmer than the originals, fit nicely around my calves, and doesn't make me look like a farmer running around Taipei City.

I still haven't decided which pair I want, but I'm definitely in the market for a black pair, even though I really like the brown ones, too. I just have more clothes that will go with black boots.

Even though I've never owned a pair of ankle booties, I definitely look twice when I see a pair I like and imagine what I'd wear it with. One pair that caught my eye is the Christian Louboutin Daf Booty. Way too nice and way too expensive; I probably won't own them in this lifetime. But a girl can dream.
