my fall shoe picks

Fall is my favorite time of year, with its crisp air, colorful foliage, smells of apples, nutmeg and cinnamon, back-to-school shopping, and of course the return of the pumpkin spice latte. I love curling up with the September issue of Vogue and making a mental wishlist of everything my closet is lacking for the upcoming season. I have already evaluated my shoe needs and have narrowed it down to 5 (relatively) reasonably-priced pairs for fall.

#1: Over-the-knee boots:

#2: Distressed Motorcycle Boots

#3: Stacked Platform Sandals

#4: Clogs

#5: Mens Oxfords

Crew's hipper, edgier younger sister, comes out next month and will be a huge factor in motivating me to lose my baby weight. Here are a couple of the looks from Alexa Chung for Madewell:To view the entire line, check out elle.com.
