Fall-ing in love with Booties

Fall.  Most of my girlfriend's live for this season.  Cozy sweaters, pumpkin everything and of course cute boots.  Fall for this lymphie means living in Uggs and as my hubs says they are Uggly.  Totally a Dad joke and while I disagree with him, it's true Uggs don't exactly give you that stylish put together look.  (See my previous post "The Uggly Duckling" about my favorite and fitting style of Uggs.)  So for years I have been on the hunt for cute fall boots.  I have been almost willing to sell my dog for the perfect pair . . . almost.

My favorite clothing brand is Free People, they have these adorable booties that would go with everything the Royale Pointy Toe Flat (link added for non-lymphies.)  Sadly they don't come in wide sizes.  Da da da daaaaa!!  Here comes Target to the rescue!  They designed a similar boot that comes in regular and wide sizes.  The Wenda Cut Out Booties by Universal Threads!!  This bootie currently comes in three beautiful colors.  They have been sold out, so I set an alert on Target.com to email me when my size was back in stock.  How awesome is that feature!  Target is like your girlfriend who always has your back . . . and encourages you to spend more money than you plan.  One glorious morning I woke up to an email they were back in stock!!  And they are about $170 cheaper than FP.  Two clicks and they were headed my way.

BL (before lymphedema) I wore a size 10, now I usually size up to at least an 11 when trying on shoes.  To be safe I purchased an 11W & 12W, the 11W fit fine.  I'm not sure how they'll hold up since I just purchased them, but booties like these don't come around everyday.  Lucky for my husband my Christmas gift is taken care of this year and currently on my feet (and in my closet in black.)  He'll be more than happy about it and may begin decorating early.  He usually starts Christmas music November 1st and when we cut down our fresh tree Thanksgiving weekend the other 3 faux trees go up as well.  Help!  I'm still enjoying the summer sun and in complete denial fall is coming!  However now that I have booties galore I am a little bit more excited to see the leaves change color, to throw on my cozy sweater and order a PSL and be #basic.  xoxo-Allie

Soaking up the last of the summer sun.  Transition into fall
will be all the more sweeter with these booties.


  1. I saw these at Target but they didnt have my sizes! I have to wear 2 different sizes. I love them and will go see if they got them back in stock

    1. Hi! Online Target have these boots in wide, I'm not sure if that helps at all. I know sometimes I need to get two different sizes. Nordstrom will sell you two different size shoes if you have to size up a whole size.
