WARDROBE WORKHORSE: WHITE BOOTIES
I hemmed and hawed over white booties for a good year before I took the plunge. I wavered between the disparate reasoning that either they were too much of a statement, or that they didn’t fill any gap in my wardrobe that couldn’t also be served by a solid pair of black booties – something I already owned.
This October these Jeffrey Campbell kitten heel lovelies went on sale and I took the plunge. Within a week, I’d worn them three times. It’s the low heel that makes them so versatile: with a crisp blouse and jeans for work, a tee and camo jacket to the grocery store, or with a lace top and leather jacket for an evening out. And the clincher: they’re patent, so I can wear them even in less-than-perfect weather and just wipe them clean at the end of the day.
