There are a number of reasons for why fall inevitably rises as my favorite season year after year. To name a few: cozy sweaters, layering, luxe and plush materials, big bowls of pasta paired with red wine, apple picking, halloween, stunning changing foliage, hot whiskeys, that crisp smell in the air, burning fireplaces, thanksgiving, the list goes on... It kind of has this magical quality that makes me extra giddy. I'm sure a lot of you also share this sentiment -- perhaps it can be attributed to that exciting back to school renewal feeling we all experienced growing up. The change in temperature is always accompanied by an inexplicable burning desire for sometimes irrational, sometimes completely warranted needs. Case in point: my recent change in lifestyle has meant a significant increase in my use of flat shoes, and therefore decided that this was the year i would invest in an amazing pair of flat-to-mid-sized heeled black boots. I've rallied up some contenders -- thoughts?
