The Buzz on: Cheapie Target Boots

So apparently Reno gets cold. Really cold. This was something that I knew about, but didn't really realize until my first night here after a rainstorm and temps getting down into the 30s. In San Diego, anything under 70 is fair game for boots, scarves and mittens. At 50 you could have a snow day from work (or maybe a sand day at the beach, but definitely all bundled up). I have seen people on Garnet Ave. a block from the beach covered in a snow jacket, jeans, boots, mittens and earmuffs while drinking a venti Starbucks in March.

But I digress.

So Reno gets cold, and this San Diego girl owns hoards of open-toed shoes. This is a dilemma - a dilemma which can only be solved by finding inexpensive boots which will get me through the cold fall and winter seasons which will no doubt freeze me out. Target has some adorable boots on their website right now that are on sale along with when you buy one pair you get a second pair 10% off, PLUS free shipping over $50.

So here are my cheapie Target boot picks - none of them over $50:

Women's Mossimo Supply Co. Kachiri Leather Americana Boots - Brown

Women's Mossimo Supply Co. Kachiri Leather Americana Boots - Taupe

Women's Merona® Kasia Tall Leather Boots - Black

Women's Journee Collection Slouchy Microsuede Boots

Women's Mossimo® Black Kamiah Peep-Toe Bootie - Black

Women's Cadee Bootie Slippers - Tan

Ok - maybe I already bought that last pair. And maybe my husband won't let me out of the house wearing them because I look like Bigfoot and he doesn't want me to get shot. I understand this. But they're so cute! The sorority girl in my wants to wear them with a denim skirt and a black letters tank top to 8 a.m. classes. Which WON'T happen (again), but I'm sorry, I can't kill that part of me off just yet. 


  1. I love the Kasia style of boot. Definitely gonna check that one out!

  2. Those boots in the miniskirt for class sounds awesome. I wish I could pull that off!

  3. I love the microsuede boots! And how did that peep-toe bootie get on that list...
