No matter how cold it has been getting this winter, I'm still baring my ankles any chance I get. I love the look of a slightly cropped/ankle length pant with low booties, showing off a sliver of skin between the two. Boots have been getting shorter and shorter over the last couple of years - I haven't even pull out my tall boots or worn them in over a year (besides my Sorels and Hunters for weather purposes). it's been all booties, all the time over here. Also, the great thing about ankle boots as you can wear them throughout more seasons - perfect for spring, too, with skirts/dresses! Here are a few I'm really wanting... some really cheap, too!
