(Not urgent but not sure how to change that)

I currently have three pairs of booties (not including one pair of lace up black and one pair of brown weatherproof suede).

The three include black hi-heeled suede Cole Haan, brown mid-heel suede Franco Sarto, and flat metallic suede Seychelles.

I would like a pair of flat or low leather higher shaft booties to wear mostly with jeans but also with cropped pants and dresses. I'm also in the market for a dressier pair of booties/boots.

I bought these Bella Vita to try. They are beautiful and comfortable and true to size. But next to my other booties they seem to continue the more rugged look of the two brown pairs - they are certainly more refined in material but the embellishments keep them from looking truly sleek. I'm waffling.

I'm also loving the look of the Topshop boots below (the first as an alternative for these; the second and third as additional purchases -- possibly as an alternative to a knee-high or OTK boot this year -- although I definitely have concerns about comfort and quality.

Any thoughts about all of this?
