Fall’s Hottest Boots That Give Back

Happy Thursday, lovebugs… have I got an incredible post for you today! Not only am I going to share two of Fall’s best styles of boots… but you can grab them for 50% off, while also helping support breast cancer research and education!! See? Incredible!!!

Like many of you, cancer has stolen the lives of too many people I love, including my dad almost two years ago. Watching that horrendous disease slowly take him away was heartbreaking, but also left me feeling helpless and angry. My heart aches for my friends and family that deal with it every day, and I live with the nagging fear that I or someone close to me will be diagnosed. I pray for a day that my children won’t have to worry about cancer, and feel hopeful that a cure can be found.

Cancer foundations, and specifically Breast Cancer Awareness, have been high on our list of philanthropies for years, so when QVC approached me to help spread the word for their annual FFANY Shoes On Sale Event, I couldn’t sign up fast enough!

This amazing event is your opportunity to shop brand name shoes and accessories, all for at least 50% off retail prices. But the best part is more than 80% of your purchase price will go towards breast cancer research and education!! Since the event started in 1994, QVC has donated over $57 million!! See? Incredible!!!

To inspire you to shop this great cause, I’ve selected two of the season’s hottest brand name boots that you can style with all your Fall outfits… a neutral ankle bootie and a chic knee boot. And both are 50% off!


Look 1 // Neutral Ankle Booties

Every closet needs a great ankle bootie, and taupe is my go-to hue. They pair with everything, including denim, black, white and every color in-between. I love the streamlined silhouette of these Franco Sarto booties and would style them with everything from denim to dresses.

The almond toe is classic and the 1.5″ block heel adds a little lift, while staying comfortable for walking.

Fit Tip: True to size.

I love the slip-on style, and they’re the perfect ankle height to show a touch of skin, but still allow room for socks.

Look 2 // Black Knee Boots

My second most-worn shoes for Fall are knee boots… and I love the versatility of having black!! They can instantly dress up an outfit… even casual combos like jeans and a sweater, but are also fun with skirts and dresses. They’re also my go-to shoe for nights out… just add a moto jacket and I instantly feel the perfect amount of cool and dressed up!

Fit Tip: Boots are true to size.

I have fairly athletic calves, and these Sam Edelman boots have just enough stretch to fit, but aren’t overly slouchy. The almond-shaped toe is perfect for both dressy and casual styles, and the sturdy heel makes it easy for walking.

I kept the outfits neutral to allow the boots to shine, but both styles are so versatile for all your Fall combos. In fact, you’ll see them both on repeat all season long! Because not only are they incredibly chic and stylish, but I can wear them knowing my purchase helped promote women’s wellness through my donation to breast cancer research and education.

In fact, I feel so strongly about this cause, I’m donating 100% of my commissions earned from this FFANY Shoes On Sale Event back to them. Find all the shoes included in this event, along with more information on how you can help, here. And for those of you fighting hard for yourself or loved ones, you are not alone! We love you and will continue to help and support your battle in every way we can.
