Plum Booties | 2 Ways

I mean, is it even safe to use the word bootie in a post title?! There may be a few disappointed readers today, but this post is actually about boots! 😉 Hopefully I won’t end up on some questionable online searches, but these plum booties are worth it. I’m full-blown smitten, and knew I had to style an entire post around them!

Obviously I’m a fan of booties…the majority of my Fall Style posts include them. But I always tend to gravitate towards taupe and cognac tones, even over black, because of their ‘go-with-everythingness.’ #thatsarealthing

But last month I stumbled on a great deep-plum nail color, and couldn’t stop staring at my hands! Or admiring how beautifully the color accented all my Fall outfits. (I’ve worn the same color a month straight now!) So when I spotted these cute new wedge boots, instead of my usual taupe, I tried the beet suede, and now I’m wondering what took me so long to break out of my taupe-rut!? #thatsarealthingtoo

You saw how I styled them for a Thanksgiving Cute & Cozy outfit last week, and today I’m sharing two more fun looks.

You’d think having colorful boots would be limiting, but they are surprisingly versatile. My favorite combos are with blush pink, black, gray, or navy. They also look great with khaki and army green tones…which is fortunate for me since I wear this utility jacket almost daily!

And what’s even better than their total cute-factor, is they are crazy comfortable! I wear wedge sandals all Spring and Summer, so I have no idea why it’s never dawned on me to continue the comfortable shoe into cooler weather!? But I can walk all day in these babies with no trouble.

Fit Tip: They run true to size for me, and I wear them either sockless, or with a thin ankle sock.

This sweater had me pink and ruffles, so I hope you like it, because you’ll be seeing a lot of it. It’d be darling with this pencil skirt and tights for work, or with black jeans and sassy booties for a night out.

Fit Tip: This brand runs small for me, so I always size up one…I’m wearing a US 4.

Okay, so I’ve proven how beautifully the plum pairs with blush pink…but look how chic it is with black and white! Sure I could wear black booties, or even taupe, but the little pop of color is so fun, and totally unexpected.

Ponchos usually confuse me, because I’m never quite sure what to do with my arms. #t-rex But this one drapes beautifully and allows me to move normally…plus it’s so soft. It did shed a little against the all-black, but isn’t a problem with other colors. You’ve heard me rave about the blouse and jeans before, too…both regulars for me.

So what do you think…are you sold on plum? Do you own any colorful booties?

I’ll see you back here early Friday for my top picks of all the best Black Friday sales…and Monday will be a monster-sized Dressing Room Diaries with my darling Mama Sugarplum. The very happiest of Thanksgivings, lovebugs! I’m so thankful for each and every one of you, and hope your holiday is blessed with an abundance of love and pie.

  4. I love them with everything you've paired them with! What is the nail color? The link goes to all the nail polish but not the specific plum color you mentioned.

    I checked out the Mazin Caytos but they seem to run wide and I have Chukkas. Any other options? I'd love to have a plum pair of booties to style along with you.
