Wait, you thought what? Um, we're talking about our footwear, okay? Get your minds out of the gutter, reprobates. As for the rest of you, those who know that when we say bootie, we mean chic, kicky, shortened versions of the big, bad boot — congratulations. You're not only on our level (so few are), but you're deserving of this slideshow that features our own personal bootie collection.
Now, as this little tour of our staff's favorite booties shows, sturdy and almost-square heels are trending in our offices. And, our preference in leather is sliding toward the soft, matte, and suede varieties — very little shine here. As for dressing up our picks? Well, if you want to follow in our footsteps (see what we did there?), either invest in some cute patterned socks or stock up on peds for the season. The best part is every single one of these picks is not only absolutely affordable, but also available at your local (or online) Target.
