Let’s get to the post!
I’m wearing the same outfit throughout today’s post, but I’m showing you how just changing out the shoes (and the bag) can totally change your entire look. We’re going to look at a statement boot, an outdoor bootie, and a casual bootie.
Let’s kick things off today with a super sassy statement boot.
I mean, seriously. Can you get any sassier than a thigh high black boot?
Because I don’t think you can.
The material is a bit stretchy and really hugs your legs, which is super flattering. The pointy toe and chunky heel just add to their appeal.
If wearing with jeans, they definitely need to be skinny jeans so they won’t be too bunchy inside of the boot.
They will also look fantastic with faux leather leggings and tights.
They are very comfortable (lots of reviewers state that they wear them all day) and they don’t fall down up top like lots of other thigh high boots do that I’ve tried in the past. They’re sleek and classic.
True to size for me.
They really do elevate the rest of the outfit.
And I just feel great in them.
Here’s the deal.
I LOVE THEM.
I didn’t know if I would.
BUT I DO.
These are a great value at their regular DSW price of just UNDER $100, but if you use the code DECKTHEHALLS right now, you can get them for $79.99!!! WOWZA!

OTHER STATEMENT BOOTIES that caught my eye follow. Don’t you love the studs on the black ones? They are all great looking booties!
Same outfit, but a much more casual look here with a big tote and a pair of duck boots.
The lace up feature is so cute and the waterproof nubuck leather upper and rubber sole provides long-lasting wear in all weather conditions!
They are very lightweight, which is the opposite of my tall rain boots that I have. These are so easy to throw on quickly on a rainy day. I’m wearing no show socks here, but they would be so cute with big fuzzy socks sticking out of the top of the boot.
True to size for me, but if planning on wearing with thick socks, you might consider sizing up a 1/2.
Bring on the rain.
More OUTDOOR boot and bootie options that caught my eye…
I’m basically obsessed with the middle two below.
This next bootie I’m showing is the most “me” shoe of the entire post.
Everybody needs to have a casual neutral bootie in their closet that they love.
These leopard booties are a neutral with attitude. They will go with basically anything you try to pair them with, but they will kick your outfit up a notch or two. Or ten.
I’m really picky about my leopard patterns, and this is a great one. The colors are muted and the pattern is small, which I love.
They slip on with ease, and I love the deep cut outs on the side with the elastic insets. They are very comfortable and can be worn with or without a sock. I’m not wearing a sock here, but a no show sock works great with them too.
They are very flattering and look great with ankle jeans.
True to size for me.
Click HERE for the booties.
This is the type of bootie I’ll reach for again and again.
They are regularly only $79.99 at DSW, but they are currently on sale for $64.98, and right now you can get an additional $10 OFF with the code DECKTHEHALLS. Getting these booties for $54.98 is a total steal!
Here are some other casual booties that caught my eye:
DSW has a large selection of combat boots, and combat boots are definitely the biggest trend of the season.
And last, but definitely not least, I’ve got some cozy options for y’all! These are of course great for at home, but perfect for running around town too.
So what do you think?
What’s your favorite boot style? As you can see, the shoes totally change the look of the outfit.
If you had to choose one pair, which would it be?
I know I’ll wear the leopard booties the most, but I sure do love how I feel in the thigh high boots!
