When all the back-to-school hubbub begins, there is always one fashion item that I always want to buy.

New Shoes!

Sassy Fashionista new shoes!

After living in Birkies all summer long, I’m ready to protect my toes from the cold.

This year, I’ve had my eye on loafers with a block heel.

But I haven’t been able to find a pair with enough pizzaz and budget-friendly qualities to pull the fashion trigger.

Until now.

These $198 black Free People.com Hybrid Harness Boots are stylish, surprisingly comfortable, on fashion trend, and they make me look a little taller without making me cry over blistered feet or walk like a drunken college kid.

I love them. Little-bit ladylike. Little bit rock n’ roll. Silver trim.

I usually wear an 8 1/2 in shoes. I sized up to a 9 for these.


Sassy in all the right ways.

I’ll wear them with jeans, skirts, and dresses this fall and way beyond.

Who doesn’t love a shoe that meets all those fashion needs?

I just got them, so there should be a pair left for you, if style and budget allow. If not, I’m pretty sure there are similar items at places like amazon.com that could fulfill your fall shoes wishes, too. And for less money.

They appear to be selling fast, so don’t wait if you want them.

A little pricey, maybe. I’m super happy to have this quality pair in my closet, and I’ve been saving up for them, too. Planning to wear them for a long, long time, so price per wear will be good. Plus, I have a lot of travel coming up this year.

Can’t wait to wear them this fall and kick up crunchy autumn leaves, too.

Are you a block heel kind of gal? How important is comfort to you?
