The trend for this season is ankle boots and I love the look. But I confess I’m not entirely ready to give up the equestrian style. After all, do those ankle boots come with longer legs?

So here are a few favorites this year, whether you prefer low or high. (Most come in multiple shades.) …

(2) The Gilmore Girlsstyle shop  Gift Guide: For Her  Complete Series on DVD–because they’re not on Hulu or Netflix, darn it!
(3) Round out her collection with still-relevant, out-of-print issues of Domino Magazine.
(4) A beautiful Turkish Towel.

In case you’ve been pining for a certain fall boot


style  In case youve been pining for a certain fall boot

After years of pining, Aron treated me to a pair of Frye’s Dorado Riding Boots last year. Funny thing was–once they came, I realized that my trusty Madewell Archive Leather Boots were pretty darn awesome and that I didn’t need such an extravagant gift. I think he secretly sighed in relief, while I tried not to look back as I handed the boots over to UPS.

But this year I spotted some Frye lookalikes at Aldo and couldn’t help myself. A few of you asked about the boots I’m wearing on our trip to Apple Hill; those are the Aldo Laverdiere boots in the dark brown–which look suspiciously similar to the Frye Dorados, don’t you think? (But they cost a whole lot less.) I also think the Aldo Fantlants look exactly like the classic Frye Melissa Button Boot.
