For some reason, despite my somewhat, erm, expansive shoe collection, I realized I didn’t have a pair of brown boots. In fact, I realized I was rarely wearing much brown. What? A under-utilized color in the Fashion Huntress world?! Never. So, now I’m finding myself wearing my brown boots all the time, and pairing them with all my under worn brown outfits. Feels good, readers. Leave no color unworn! It’s your world, color it however you want.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) Clearly, tall brown and black boots are staples in your wardrobe. I’ve found that I really don’t wear mine outside once the salt and snow hit the streets and sidewalks. As much as it’s sort-of a hassle to carry around spare boots, most boots (leather, suede, or synthetic) really don’t do well in adverse weather conditions and can leave your boots looking really worn and stained. Even though I bought these boots for $20, they will still last years if they are well cared for in winter. Moral of the story: get one pair of waterproof warm boots that you will wear for six months straight outdoors (if your weather is anything like Chicago’s), and show your other boots some love by sparing them from slush, salt, snow, and sand.
2) My fiancé and I came across work created by Skull Paradise while in New Orleans, Lousiana. If you’re interested in unique, handmade jewelry and art work, it’s great to support local artisians. I met one of the artists while visiting their booth at an art fair and loved the warm enthusiasm. If interested, you can check them out via: https://www.facebook.com/CrescentCitySkullClub
