We know what you're thinking--"do I really need another pair of leather ankle booties?" The short answer? Yes. Yes you do. And these Free People Marquis Heel Boots are the ones. When it comes to a sturdy pair of goes-with-anything ankle boots, Free People never steers us wrong. From the rounded toe, to the soft leather upper and generous stacked heel (4 1/4 inches to be exact--shorties rejoice!), you'd be hard-pressed to find a better looking set of boots, especially ones as wearable as these. These bad boys pair just as well with jeans and a tee as they do with dramatic statement dresses, and will remain on your feet all year round. So whether your idea of late autumn includes treading lightly on fresh fallen snow, crunching leaves underfoot, or (for our SoCal babes) 70 degrees and sunny, these boots are sure to fit the bill. Here's how we'll be wearing them during the cooler months in our hometown of San Diego, but feel free to style them up in a way that works for you, and don't forget to share them on the 'gram with the hashtag #VDVBabe.
