splurge save steal: the ankle bootie.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; fall bootie shopping roundup; Rag & Bone Harrow Bootie; DV by Dolce Vita Jaxen Boot; Sole Society Skylar Ankle BootieAnother closet staple that I’m on the hunt for this fall is the perfect ankle bootie.  As you know, comfort is key to running around the city and a chunky heel will definitely keep you on your feet for hours (a few of my blogger friends can testify!).  Naturally, the Rag & Bone Harrow Bootie would be at the top of my wish list — that is, if I had half a grand to drop on a pair of shoes.  Lucky for us, I found a few budget-friendly options that make for quite the steal.  Your wallet and your feet can thank me later!

1. Splurge: Rag & Bone Harrow Bootie
