Boots are one of those fall staples that go with every outfit. I usually wear them everyday during our rainy season here in Portland. The past few years, lace-up boots have had a resurgence in popularity and I am loving those too. They look charming paired with skirts and dresses and fresh and modern when paired with skinny jeans. Whether you like a 90’s inspired combat boot or a Little House on the Prairie look, you’re bound to find a pair that suits you.
