Fall is my favorite season, from the leaves changing, to the fashion, I love the feeling of Fall. That not too cold but not too hot feeling. But getting cooler weather in Miami is a hard ask this early on. What we do get is frequent rainstorms. I got lucky on this day with the rainstorm bringing cooler temperatures. Rain usually cools everything down and allows for sweaters and boots to come out of hiding.

I received these Timberland boots right in time for this downpour. They’re the women’s Jayne Waterproof Gaiter Boot style. The rain can come and go without warning this time of year. I love the versatility of this waterproof boot. I love the different ways the boot can be folded down and worn. It’s like getting a few different boots in one.
Downside of the rain is Miami Beach often floods when it rains and finding practical footwear becomes difficult. These Timberland boots are very utilitarian in that way. I paired them with a soft oversized sweater to soften my leather and nylon based look. These boots made me feel not only ready for Fall but ready for anything that came my way that day. Whether that be puddles or life, I felt powerful stomping around in my cozy but waterproof look. A good pair of boots is essential to my wardrobe and I love these.
I can wait to take these on a trip to some place more seasonal. They’re so comfortable so they’re a perfect travel boot. You also know you’d be ready for anything the elements threw at you. I was splashing around in puddles and my feet remained dry which is not something I can do in sneakers.
Which way do you prefer the boot worn? Folded up or down? How would you style them?
