The look for less: short boots

A while back I wrote about these amazing Belstaff Barkmaster boots, I saw them and fell in love.  But, the price tag — oh my. So, I let those boots keep on walking.  Then, I was shopping the after-Christmas sale at Nordstroms and spotted these from Boutique 9 (below) on the sale rack for $120.  VERY similar in style, darker chocolate, but similar in the worn-in treatment, ~1″ heel height, and strappy/buckle styling.  The boots are great with jeans, tight enough on the ankle to fit under boot cut, but loose enough to put over skinny jeans or cords.  Comfortable for running errands with the kids or hanging on the weekends. With thick socks they’ve kept me warm even in sub-zero weather. Practical, stylish, affordable. If only everything I found could be like this.
