Fall fashion
I could have never predicted that the hottest accessory this summer and fall would have been a pair of rain boots. It’s shocking and sad; however make the best of this with an adorable pair of gum boots. And when the rain turns to snow oh so very soon, slide your tootsies right into a pair of sheepskin Uggs or knee high boots. It’s time to hang up the skater shoes and take on some mountain chic footwear this winter.
