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.

We’ve had some perfect fall weather lately, and what better way to celebrate than to bring out the booties? This lovely creation from Tabitha Simmons is perfect for your transitional fall wardrobe. Black and gold is always an elegant combination; I love the zippered cuff and metal tipped toe, which elevate this bootie from average to amazing. The price isn’t wonderful, but there are some really great double-take options:
