Gipsy Dharma Black Knee High Leather Boots

Gipsy Dharma Black Knee High Leather Boots

If you haven’t heard of GiPSY Dharma boots before, you must not read this blog because I’m a huge fan and have written several pieces on them in the past. Their signature unique knee high leather boots are handmade and are the conversation piece of your outfit, whether you’re going to a music festival, event, or taking them out on the town. Heading into fall, there are countless shades of neutrals and jewel tones you could go with, but for the sake of this blog post I wanted to feature their classic black leather version. The black moccasin style boot is boho but with a gothic edge.  As I’ve mentioned before in other blog posts, since the leather is super supple and the boot shaft is totally lace-up, Gipsy Dharma boots form to your individual shape and give you a really comfortable wear. While everyone is busting out their biker and riding boots this fall, take an edgier route and go with a statement boot like this!

Elizabeth Anne Shoes Purse n’ Boots Brown Walking Boots

Elizabeth Anne Shoes Brown Walking Boots

Classic tall riding boots are a shoe I could live in all year here in San Francisco. Even on the tail end of spring and the cusp of summer, we get some really odd freezing cold days where the coastal fog takes over and any stranger might think it was a typical day in February. And as a SF girl on the go, I also like carrying just my bare necessity items with me if I’m meeting up for drinks, dinner, or dessert with friends at night; you won’t catch me ever going out with a humongous purse. The same goes for when I’m out running errands; I find my purse just gets in the way and it’s one more thing to carry. That’s why when I found these boots by Canadian designer and entrepreneur Elizabeth Anne, I knew they were designed with the city girl in mind. These are innovative and stylish boots with slim pockets for your bare essentials built inside!

Scheduled for release this September, these classic brown leather riding boots with this innovative slim pocket feature are available for preorder now. The ‘European’ style boot, pictured above, features the designers signature “Purse n’ Boots” creation: a handy pouch in the shaft of the boot with slots for your credit card, passport, and smartphone. As in, it will work for iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, and Blackberry users! Made of a genuine cowhide leather, I just love the vintage finish these boots have. They’re not only practical, but very stylish! What’s also wonderful is that there are two calf sizes available  which few shoe manufacturers offer, ever. I think I will absolutely live in these when it comes to going out year-round in SF. Perfect for rocking with a dress, jacket, and you’re out the door… no purse needed!

Gipsy Dharma Purple Knee High Leather Boots

Gipsy Dharma Purple Knee High Leather Boots

If you love rocking a statement piece and the color purple, I’ve found THE item for you. In a delicious and vibrant grape shade, these handmade knee high leather boots fit like a second skin. The lace-up calf and moccasin style feet give this bohemian boot a forgiving wear on any size leg or foot. These boots are made of fine quality leather that’s both supple and durable; perfect for romping around in. I think these are the perfect piece to rock at that summer music festival you’ve been looking forward to; a unique fashion item no one else will be wearing! The laces hang down like tassels and that tells me these boots were made to dance and twirl in. Wear with a mini skirt, crocheted tank, antiqued silver jewelry, and cross-body purse for that an instantly boho chic look that starlets like Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Lucy Hale make look so easy. I’ve featured boots by GiPSY Dharma in the past and I just had to share that these boots come in not only purple, but many other colors!

Gipsy Dharma Leather Boots For Women

Gipsy Dharma Leather Boots For Women

In San Francisco, there’s an event nearly every single weekend where you can experiment wildly with style. Whether it’s the How Weird Street Faire, Bay to Breakers, or Pride, there’s always an occasion to step outside in something you normally wouldn’t wear everyday. I recently found these handmade lace-up leather boots by Gipsy Dharma and thought they were just absolutely perfect for summer festival season coming up. Bet you wish you had these at Coachella last month, right? Embrace your inner forest pixie or Pocahontas in these supple leather boots with moccasin style feet. I love the warm tan color and intricate leather braiding that give it a unique touch. Of course, I adore the laces that are forgiving on any calf size. Although this is an indie designer find, this UK gem also ships to the US, Canada, and Australia. Basically all the other countries I’d like to attend music festivals in. And if you’re into cosplay at all – I think these could make for a great twist on Link! Just as long as you don’t steal my idea for Halloween.

Sorel Tofino Waterproof Boots

Sorel Tofino Waterproof Boots

As a Bay Area native, I’ve never really experienced a true freezing cold winter. As a kid, I envied the snow days, making snowmen in the front yard, and white Christmases I had heard all about from distant family and friends. So this California girl has never owned a pair of legit snow boots, and I’ve found just the pair to pack for trips to Tahoe (if there will ever come snow this season) or possibly for trips to even chillier climates (Utah, Colorado, British Columbia, who knows!). I’m loving the chic quilted texture and faux fur that line these lace-up snow boots, which are much more versatile and utilitarian than the UGGs I own. They’re waterproof and look like they have decent traction for trudging through the snow. Fingers crossed these boots go on sale since it’s the end of the season soon!

Burberry Rain Boots

If you live in the Bay Area like I do, you know a thing or two about rain. There are so many days where I get out of bed and it’s literally down pouring, and it sucks away all the motivation to wear anything remotely cute. Well, it seems I’ve found my solution! These Burberry boots are super stylish, a great color palate, and of course… water proof! And not to mention, they’ve got a really reasonable price tag!

Chelsea Crew Detour Lace-Up Boots

Chelsea Crew Detour Lace-Up Boots

This year I’ve really expanded my boot collection, but I’m still missing just the classic Oxford-style lace up boots. I love these by Chelsea Crew (no relation), because of the high top style, cognac color, and stacked heel. They’re not too high so they seem very walkable and all around perfect for both work or weekend wear. At less than $80, these boots are a great mid-range find.
