One of my favorite things about the temperature dropping is throwing my sandals and anything requiring a pedicure into storage. It’s boot season, after all. Who has time for pedis when you could be double-fisting apple cider donuts and openly talking about your love of Hallmark Christmas movies without fear of shame from your “friends” who ask why you’re so obsessed with movies that all have the same plot?

Go ahead and dive into the coziest knit sweaters, teddy jackets that feel like a hug and, of course, all of the boots — especially over-the-knee numbers that trick the internet into thinking you’re tall (which I am not by any means — shout out to all my petite gals out there!).

It’s time to pull out all the stops with over-the-knee boots featuring everything from patent finishes to  lace-up details that will have strangers on the street asking, “Where did you get those?” 

Here are the pairs I’m obsessed with this season.
