I don’t really like shoes that much. I know, who even am I. I even admitted it in the Rock My Wedding book Your Day Your Way, can’t begin to imagine what all the brides-to-be think of that bombshell.
Even though for the time, I threw out the proverbial wedding rulebook, I certainly didn’t consider anything other than a pair or courts or sandals for the big day. Obviously I should have worn ankle boots, obviously. I bloody love boots. It’s all I wear bar trainers for the nursery run/gym and the odd night out where I feel sky scraping heels and a flash of shin are required to complete an evening outfit.
One of my most anticipated Autumn shopping activities is to peruse the latest collections, leather, suede, fur-lined, studded, over-the-knee, shoe-boot….I love them ALL. This particular feature is about my favourite type – the awesome ankle. As any of you who follow me on instagram will know, my go-to pair are the Tulsi Fringe by Matisse at Free People. The front dip gives the illusion of longer legs (and I need all the help I can get) and they are as comfortable as slippers, no word of a lie. I have them in every colour and have recently ordered more as mine are so worn.
On the subject of a dipped front, I currently have my eye on the Mint Velvet Pippa Boots, simple yet chic, I think they would work as well with jeans as they would with black tights and a floral dress.
Lisa has recently invested in the Slouch Boot by Modern Rarity available in both grey and brown, and Lauren cannot stop singing the praises of her recent bargain elasticated pull-on Mango find which you can see her modelling in the header image above, a snip at £35.99.
I am slightly obsessed with the Houndstooth print pair, also by Mango. I have no idea what they would go with mind you but perhaps they would somehow look fabulous with everything… *talks self into buying them.
Under thirty quid wise I am loving these blush ankle boots from H&M – they only have a few sizes left and at £29.99 I’m not surprised. As a side note, I’m really impressed with the quality of H&M footwear for the price, I have a pair of silver courts from there that I’ve worn for years on and off and they still look as good as new.
For a low heel and leather the Amsterdam multi-buckle and the Sill Whiskey Lonestar designs both from Office are lush. If only I could justify adding more to my existing 157 pairs (I joke – I think)….I would be adding both of these beauties to my existing collection.
