Double-Take: Tabitha Simmons Early Bootie

It’s the middle of winter here in Philadelphia, and although there aren’t piles of snow around on the sidewalks, the temperatures do dip below the 40s and that makes me want to put on my coziest outfits for outdoor excursions in center city. Icy sidewalks are no place for heels, and black ankle boots are the answer to staying chic in the cold. The best are those tastefully adorned with eye-catching details like buckles, zippers, and studs.

You don’t have to sacrifice fashion for comfort in these booties by Tabitha Simmons! You would, however, have to sacrifice a good chunk of change to get your hands on these, so consider this version from Lucky Brand instead:

Lucky-Brand-Doreen-Buckled-Ankle-BootI’ve had the chance to scope these out and try them on at DSW. They are quite comfortable in my opinion, and look great under jeans or with tucked-in leggings. They also come in beige, which I actually prefer more. They’re currently on sale, so grab your size before they’re gone!
