Faking Fall :: Booties + Skirts

The hardest thing an avid fall lover has to do is hold out on wearing boots. The second the calendar says "FALL!!" it takes a large amount of restraint not to throw on my over-the-knee boots and wear them proudly - but then I remember how hot my legs would be. The solution is booties! They're lighter, cooler, and add an instant fall flair to any outfit. We're using the same rule as yesterday - let the legs breathe - for the days that are closer to 90 degrees. When it's more in the 70's, I've been wearing mine with pants too. They're the ultimate hold over item.
