Ankle boot season is here and this fills me with more joy than it probably should. I adore Autumn. The crisp, sunny mornings. Orange leaves. Hot chocolate. Coat weather. Being able to wear all my boots again. Wahoo!
I am actually obsessed with these shoes. I would wear them every single day if I could but in my mind that’s unfair to the others in my collection. These shoes seem to pick up reactions wherever I wear them so I figured I’d give you an insight in to what happened when I wore them to work…
Let’s just take a minute to cast our minds back to Wednesday. The sun was shining, there was a light breeze in the air and a feeling of calm on my normally stressful commute. Every one was digging the weather. So much so, that I deemed it only appropriate to bust out my metallic teal pleated midi skirt and rock a bit of shimmer and a bit of leg.
That’s right. I unleashed my inner Ariel and channelled a mermaid for the day.
I originally bought this skirt around the end of last year and wore it to my work Christmas party but I knew it’d be one I could wear again and again, no matter the occasion.
This time, I paired it with a plain grey sleeveless top, snake print blazer, and a statement necklace, not forgetting to mention my silver sparkly slipper shoes.
Over the years I’ve collected a lot of animal print in my wardrobe. I have skirts, shirts, tees, vests, blazers and shoes. I’ve got it all. I’m addicted.
When I see an animal-printed item in the shops I find myself drawn to it. It’s like a weird magnetic pull reeling me in. I’m a complete sucker for a print. Whether it’s snakeskin, leopard print or some crazy mix of both, I’m all over it.
It’s bold, brash and instantly mood lifting, which is why I decided to road test them all at once. It might be a little crazy, it might be too wild for your liking and I know for a fact that the clashing prints and colours would make my cousin Gem come out in hives, but I don’t care
What can I say, I kinda like it.
