The ankle adventure.
Good day my footwear loving beauties,
I, like a lot of you I am sure, have a momentary fashion indecision all the time when it’s not quite cold enough for knee highs but equally not warm enough for a loafer, what my dear followers do we wear instead?? Well this is the perfect time to turn to our trusty ankle boot 😀 For this weeks post I am going to share with you my staple ankle boots I am sporting for the upcoming Spring and with what I wear them with.
The lace up heeled boot.
As soon as I saw these boots in Ralph Lauren I knew I needed them in my life. I love the multiple strap and eyelet detail and although they are rather high they are extremely comfortable to commute to work in. I usually wear these boots either with skinny wet look trousers and an oversized jumper in my leisure time or when I need to look smart for a meeting I just throw on a fitted pencil dress and black opaques with them.
The Brogue boot. The brogue pattern and tasselled accent on these Russell and Bromley boots drew me to them immediately. They are so versatile and my go to pair at the weekends thrown on with some skinny jeans and a buttoned up shirt or a day dress. They have been worn and worn over winter and the leather has become even more comfortable with each wear. I definitely think it is best to invest in a good quality pair, your feet will thank you I promise!
I was ecstatic over the Christmas period to find a black and a brown pair of Chelsea boots under our tree for me last year. They really are the everyday boot and I have barely taken mine off since I received them. My brown pair I wore this past weekend with a cream cable knit jumper, brown All Saints belt and my Massimo riding jacket. Equestrian style in the city.
The Day to night boot.
It is virtually inexcusable in my humble opinion to not own at least one pair of day to night boots. These nifty inventions are perfect for that planned dinner date after work where you want to feel glam but not have you reaching for your stilletto heels mid week either or even something you can reach for when you are going for a girls night out and strappy sandals just won’t do in our cold London evenings.
The quilted back section and unusual zip feature make my beautiful Bromley’s my special occasion boot and the suede and glitter combo on the second pair look great paired with a LBD and bare legs or even with a shirt and chinos for work also.
Whatever style of ankle takes your fancy this year, revel in the knowledge that as our boot lengths shorten, the day’s lengthen and we are one step closer to the big reveal – summer = sandals (cue happy dance.) 😀
Until next week, take care
