Some of us may be kicking up our heels now that it’s finally winter in the District, but I’m willing to bet there are still a few fellow procrastinators wandering around in loafers. Like me, they may be just realizing that their tried-and-true boots of yesteryear won’t make it another season (R.I.P Vince stacked suede bootie, you served me well).
Luckily, this season’s basic block heel boot is super sturdy, accessible, and happens to go with everything. Whether you are keeping it conservative with wool suiting at the office, or layering up sweaters over a boho midi-dress and stockings, a pair of block-heeled boots is a quick solution to get you on your feet and out the door.
