How We Style It - Ankle Booties

Photo Credit: Ben McDonald
Last week, a miraculous thing happened. I received most comfortable 5" platform ankle booties that I had ordered from Auri, and I wore them to work. You're probably saying to yourself, big whoop. Adult women wear heels to work all the time. Not me, tootsies. In the (almost) year since Julia and I have formed our unholy union, I have become painfully aware of the lack of heels in closet, and have recently set about making Queen J proud of my heels game!

When I saw one of my favie Instagrammers @longlostjewelry post a cray-cray cute pair of ankle booties, noting how comfy they were and that they were on supa-sale since the company was going out of biz, I pounced! After wearing them to work last week and getting compliments left and right ("you look so trim!"-  my boss "I think I like these shoes!" - me) I decided then and there that I would have heels permanently attached to my cloven hooves. You think I'm kidding, but I put my work clothes back on after my barre class JUST so I could wear my cutie Auri heels into Trader Joe's and enjoy my newfound fancy lady status a little bit more. Am I about 10 years late on the enjoyment of wearing heels? Sure. Better late than never? That's what I say! 


Check out how my main Honey Boo-Boo Child Julia and I style our ankle booties, and be sure to let us know what you wear with your AB's, because one of us (ME) is still new at this!

  8. I completely agree - I feel so accomplished when I actually wear heels around the city! Traveling to and from work on the El and walking several blocks isn't comfortable in them, then it just feels useless to change my shoes in the office. I'm glad I heard about Auri! - J
