It's officially fall, which means the fall activities are right around the corner, if they haven't already started, depending on how excited a person is about the season. The leaves change their colors and the weather gets cooler. Apples and pumpkins are ready to harvest. These things not only create things to do -- like apple picking and the opportunity to take road trips for some leaf-peeping -- but it is also is the start of the red, brown, green, and tan autumnal clothing color palette. It's a time to switch out the shorts, T-shirts, and flip flops for jeans, flannels, and boots. This includes closed-toe shoes, especially ones that look great in orchards and pumpkin patches, as that's where most people like to go during this time of year. Activities like apple picking are about the fun, of course, but thanks to Instagram, they can be a chance to show off style. From fall boots to flats, there are a ton of different styles that can work. And mom can also wear them during everyday tasks (like pick-up and drop-off.)

Look for different ways to wear boots -- as boots are a total fall staple. We did include lots of boots below. But one of the fun parts of fall style are the different styles of shoes available that fit with outfits both dressy and casual. There are slip-on boots, flats, booties, lace-up boots, wedge booties, and sneakers. All are perfectly acceptable while apple picking. It just depends on how casual or fancy one wants to get it. That includes shoes that can dress up or down a pair of jeans. Don't worry, we found lots of these styles to include in this round up -- and even included shoes that work with the changing weather typical of the fall season. From wet, chilly mornings to warm afternoons, the season's weather is unpredictable, so we covered those bases, too.

Check out the choices we pulled below. Whether the shoes are completing a look or the starting point for the outfit, the options are abundant. Just pick wisely -- and we're not just talking about the apples. But, yes, those are also important. Happy Fall!
