The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in full swing right which makes the perfect time to stock up on essentials the the perfect pair of boots to update your look.

Personally I tend to gravitate towards over-the-knee styles or other usual suspects like ankle booties, but not this year. With so many velvet and baroque mid-calf boots out there I couldn’t help but give in.

Wide-leg jeans, skirts and dresses all pair perfectly with this ornate option and elevate a look from everyday classic to uniquely refreshing.
