Brrr it’s cold. I’m always cold to be fair, but this time of year reminds me that I really haven’t got any shoes (or anything else) that are suitable for winter. Ballet pumps aren’t going to cut the mustard, no matter how thick my tights are, and neither plimsoles nor Converse are quite waterproof or smart enough for anything other than a bit of a hungover wander (to the corner shop for Irn Bru and salt and vinegar Squares…).
Basically, I’m trying to give myself an excuse for the fact that I bought two pairs of boots last Friday night on the way home from work. I don’t need an excuse, but it makes me feel a little better.
The first pair are these highly-practical things from M&S
I’m not generally an M&S shopper but their Limited Collection can be surprisingly appealing…
Faux suede ankle boots complete with shearling cuff, ankle buckle and 4 inch heel. Perfect for winter(!)
And, with new purchase in hand, I crossed the road to New Look, just couldn’t help myself and ended up buying these:
They remind me of a pair from Office that I ummmed and ahhed about for a while before deciding that they were a bit too chunky. The almond toes on these are much cuter.
Of the two, the desert boots get my vote. I’ve got a cupboard full of shoes that I don’t wear very often. The last thing I need to do is add another pair to the mix. The first are also a bit “Twiggy”. Or worse, “Dannii”. Bloody M&S advert ruining everything.
The desert boots are my new favourite obsession, and they also come in black. I might do my multiple-buys party trick and get those too. Good job I’m taking back the first pair then isn’t it?
