Let it be known that I love a good bootie–and a good booty (#realtalk). Ankle boots always seem to provide just the right touch of downtown chic to any look, and right now I’m obsessed with these patterned boots.

Both pairs are relatively comfortable, and are juuuuust dressy enough to make it seem like I tried to look nice on days when it takes ALL of my effort just to put on pants. The trend has been going on for a while thanks to designers like Isabel Marant, Rag and Bone, and Giuseppe Zanotti/Brian Atwood/everybody making leopard print boots (aka everybody).
