Even though I’ve been sharing some resort finds the last couple weeks, we still have a few weeks left of winter here in Texas! Thanks to the changing denim trends, this fall/winter I went on quite a shoe buying journey. Most of my boots from previous years were ones I could only wear with skinny jeans! I realized I didn’t have really any styles that looked great with straight leg or crop flare jeans, which I have been wearing on repeat this season. Before this year, I never really understood the skinny ankle boot or sock boot. Now I get it! I find them to be so flattering under perfectly cropped denim, where the hem of the jeans extends just beyond the top of the boot – like you see in this post.

I first bought a black pair back in November, and have worn them literally to death… and I mean that. I took them to Europe and made the unwise decision to wear them on cobblestone streets! They definitely need a trip to Deno’s for fixing up once the season is over. After seeing how much I’ve reached for them this season, I figured the smart thing to do was to buy a similar style in an equally versatile neutral! I settled on this pair by Loeffler Randall. I love the warm beige hue – perfect for pairing with all kinds of colors! The leather is incredibly soft and pliable, making the boots very comfortable. They truly fit like a glove! I took my normal size in these boots, by the way. SHOPBOP has an amazing selection of boots that work well with the current denim trends! What you’ve gotta look for is something with a higher ankle shaft – that’s key for avoiding a high water look with your jeans.
