boot-y call!

So, I am officially on a quest for the perfect autumnal boots! I have been miring over this decision for weeks. I am so indecisive & I'm hoping thatyou all can help! Please let me know what you think, that would be grand. :)

Ok so ideally I'd like them to be: a) tall enough that I can tuck jeans into b) versatile enough that I could wear them with a nice dress or shorts & tights c) durable- physically and trend-wise, classic?


The contestants are...!
1. Wanted Prague Lace-up Boots, Delia's
Pros: I'm a big fan of brown boots, least expensive!
Cons: Could be a little taller?, fairly casual

2. Jeffrey Campbell, Everybody boots

Pros: I think the black makes them dressier and I can imagine wearing them with these wool shorts I just bought from J. Crew. Love the style
Cons: I read reviews that material looks sort of cheap and that the sole falls off. Bad news bears! This might be a deal breaker, but I still love you gorgeous boots!


2. Jeffrey Campbell Flander Boots

Pros: look more durable, made of canvas so no animal killing, yay! like the over-all look
Cons: don't have as much potential to dress up


3. J. Crew Walker Riding Boots

Pros: Love the classic style with vintage twists, very versatile
Cons: Most expensive! and too tall?

Thanks for your help! Love you forever. :] I need to solve this dilemma soon because I leave in 3-ish weeks! Can you believe that?! I can't. Hope you had a lovely Monday (well as lovely as Mondays can be). I promise to have an outfit post either tomorrow or Wednesday.

Oh and PS. Remember that song/dance called Booty Call from middle school days. hahaha we thought we were so cool and scandalous. Middle school was the most awkward period in my life thus far, I don't think I would go back if I was paid. What about you?

Middle school age is def kind of unfortunate. I think it's just awkward because you're so in-between.

But about boots: I think my vote is with the first pair. I can imagine them under a dress or with jeans.

The last pair is also lovely. I"m just not sure how ok I am with how high they are.

This winter I am facing a similar quest but I need mine to be able to last through Quebec winter.

Good luck on your hunt!

The JC everybody boots are my pic, although all of them are perfect for the fall.
