If you look through my blog, you will actually notice the same pair of shoes again and again. Although I buy a lot of clothes, I actually don’t buy that many shoes at all.
Why you should buy the shoes…
I see other bloggers and Instagrammers ‘shoedrobe’ (shoe wardrobe) and there are 10 variations of nude heels, 23 variations of black ankle boots, a few designer pairs, 15 going out heels, and 20 variations of flat shoes, the list goes on. I have around 10 pairs of shoes in total which I wear all the time, well obviously not all the time because I don’t have 20 feet, but I wear them all (at different times), very often.
Usually I stick with a black shoes, something season appropriate, something very versatile and something practical, meaning I get a lot of wear out of them. Until, these bright red suede flared heel ankle boots caught my eye and I couldn’t get them off my mind. I hardly wear red so it wasn’t like I had loads of things to wear with them. Coloured suede, not exactly practicable as they could mark so easily and just ‘red suede boots’, really?
In one of those, ‘sod it’ moods, I purchased these red boots. After dancing around the house in them feeling like Madonna, the labels were off and they were home for good. Surprisingly, I have worn them so much, they’ve gone with a lot of my monochrome outfits, bringing a little colour to the look, perfect for a night out as I hate wearing high heels, and they defo add that little bit of sass I was searching for. I’ve spotted so many clothes that have little red details or similar and they go SO WELL with the boots! I’m obsessed with them now and annoyed that I didn’t buy them before Christmas!
I shot quite a few blog images recently and I wore the red boots in all of the photos! So you’ll be seeing a lot of them. The motto of the story is, buy the shoes, as long as they’re comfy (I sound so old) but you might be surprised just how much you really can wear them!
I think the red boots absolutely make this outfit, I spotted this T-shirt on ASOS and knew it would be a perfect subtle match with the boots! You know how much I love my monochrome, this just brings it to life. Totally in love with the frilly detailing on this blazer. Gingham and frills, a cute little match made in heaven!
