Ok, if I have to mourn summer, I can tolerate it whilst wearing blue velvet booties. I’ve been completely smitten with velvet for the past couple of seasons and now I want everything in this luxe fabric! It may become a little weird when I start wearing it all together (all.the.time)!
And (wait for it)…these sock booties are less than 40 bones! No, really. Target does it again! As always, this is one of my first stops when looking to try a trend I’m not sure that I want to invest in. Initially I was thinking that I wouldn’t get a lot of wear out of blue velvet booties, but I’ve already worn them three times in the week that they have been in my wardrobe.
Blue velvet aside, let’s also talk about a sock bootie. I’ve been reluctant to try this one. First, I have large feet, so I feel like the tightness around the ankle accentuates the size of my shoe. Also, who wants super tight, elastic around their ankles (especially while wearing heels)??! While these booties create a sock-like shape, they are slender but not tight. Honestly, if these came in a different material or another color, I would snag a second pair! Run, don’t walk to Target. Supplies will not last long!
