The Transitional Season

Despite our brief encounter with 80 degree temps this week, its finally starting to feel like fall in New York City. The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and there is so much to look forward to. The kids are getting ready for Halloween, and before we know it we’ll be brining a turkey, then shopping amongst the masses for holiday time. With all that, my most favorite part about this time of year are the fall fashions. Wearing light layers are just so refreshing as opposed to getting all bundled in winter jackets.

I am coming off a major closet over-haul, the first cleansing of its type since having kids. It was funny to cull through the pregnancy, right after pregnancy, and almost into my size garments stuffed in my closet. I purged and donated so much, leaving a clean slate for new fall fashions. Rack Room Shoes has been a go-to for my entire family for sometime now, because they offer stylish shoes for all occasions at reasonable prices. When I ordered from them last week, I focused styles just for me, because this mama deserves a few new pairs of shoes!


There were so many great styles, I seriously couldn’t decide which to get, so my cart was overflowing. I thought about my fall clothes and came up with these three styles, that I know will work for fall and beyond. First, these Franco Fortini Ella Booties! I love anything fringe nowadays, and these side tassels work for dressing up or down. Plus, with a 3 inch heel, I cannot tell you how comfortable they are.

I’ve always gone back and forth about getting an over-the-knee boot. I wanted something that wasn’t too high, with a smaller type of heel for that casual look. These Report Fisher Knee High Boots are crafted with a soft made liner and a cushioned insole, so you’ll want to wear them all day every day. And the best part, they are on sale right now, so I scored.

Next, for something a little dressier, which can be worn will all my long dresses, especially for work functions. I fell in love with these Limelight Kendra suede bootie. The zipper detailing is my absolute favorite, and I bet they will be my most worn shoe all season long.


There’s nothing like a closet chuck full of new gear. Gosh I love fall! Would love to hear some of your favorite styles from Rack Room Shoes!

  1. I love the look of the Report Fisher Knee High Boots. The color is perfect for Fall. I need to get a few new pieces for my wardrobe.

  2. Love your style, Brianne. Chic and charm! Today trends focus on something simple and subtle. Even using oriental pattern as embroidery on silk chemises, jeans, shoes and boots. That makes things more gorgeous! Have you ever tried some?
