When fall rolls around, most Americans look forward to crackling fires, hot cocoa, and the changing leaves. There’s not a whole lot of that going on here in San Diego. But the fashionistas among us want an excuse to pack up their sandals and trade them in for a great pair of seasonally appropriate cold weather boots. Enter the bootie.
The ankle boot is the perfect option for San Diego’s temperate setting. It’s a high heel-meets-boot combo that screams fall/winter without being too bulky.
In Golden Hill, 32-year-old hairstylist Brooke Dankowski sported a unique pair of leather-and-textile ankle booties. The boots are from Revolve clothing. They retail for $350.
