New black booties

Sunnies: Tom Ford | Necklace: Stella and Dot (option) | Cardigan: Old Navy | Top: Bailey 44 | Leggings: Express | Booties: Cole Haan

More Black Friday purchases coming your way in real life! While the sweater and leggings are new also, I really wanted to focus on the greatness that are these booties! My bootie collection has quadrupled over the last couple of years. I'm starting to dig them more and more, especially since I feel like they're not just limited to winter.

A few weeks ago, I was getting dressed and wanted to wear some black booties but it was raining outside, so my typical suede booties (featured here) really wouldn't work. I have a pair of black leather booties (here), but they're a bit too precarious to wear in the rain. That's when I realized I had a hole in my bootie collection. I needed black leather with a stacked wood heel.

I had picked up these Sam Edelman booties, and was THISCLOSE to getting them. The fringe wasn't that obnoxious to me, and the boot otherwise fit the criteria I was looking for. But then I noticed these Cole Haan booties and as soon as I slipped my foot in them, I said, "Awww, man" because I knew I wouldn't be able to let them go. I know Cole Haan is known for comfort, but these are so comfy, I could wear them barefoot sans socks. Seriously like butter.

  3. Love these black booties! I'm the same - my collection of booties keeps growing. They're just so practical! Also, I'd love a report on how you like the sweater leggings? How are they different than regular leggings? Warmer? Softer?

    1. So the sweater leggings are almost an in between product of a thick knit tight and my Zella leggings. If these had feet on it, they would be the perfect weighted tights for winter.
      That being said- I don't think they are any warmer or colder than my other leggings. They are the same.
      But the pros- soooooooooo comfortable. So soft. Like really super soft. The waistband is nice and wide too so no digging.
      After I saw these photos, I ended up pulling the legs down so they are over my heels (vs folding them under like I normally do for long leggings) to avoid bunching in my boot. Way better that way.
      Oh but I would be worried for tall people wearing these. As with all knits- the more they stretch, they will inherently become sheer. Does that make sense? It's fine for me as a shorty, and I think they are the perfect weight for your climate.
      That was a long dissertation on sweater leggings.
      Overall- still two thumbs up from me!

  4. ooo, those are beautiful! I like how you specifically wanted the stacked heel...seems like such a small detail, but huge impact!

    1. Yes, for sure! I think it's the added heel support that helps with the comfort and walkability of them! I just love them!!
