With October has come a definite autumn feel – rain, wind, leaves falling off the trees and general non-summerness.
I don’t approve.
It does, however, galvanise the need for new boots, which can only be a good thing. Footwear purchases are always a good thing!
I’ve decided that my go to ankle boots for autumn winter are to be chunky black stompy ones; with a thick rubber sole and block heel.
They’ll look great with black skinnies (an A/W stalwart), give height under my patterned flares, and also work with girly dresses and thick tights for a touch of 90s grunge.
I ordered these London Rebel ones from the ASOS sale – £22.50
But I wasn’t entirely sure if they’re quite high enough.
So I had a scoot around.
Deichmann have some of contenders – I’ve had a few pairs of boots from there in the past and it’s definitely a site worth checking out.
These from New Look fit the bill.
Boohoo have these
So, just to be on the safe side, I ordered some more, to compare to the ASOS ones. All in the interest of doing the right thing. Because it would be awful for all involved (mainly the husband) if I didn’t get it absolutely right. After all, it’s a long time ’til spring and sandals time…
Turns out that, 4 parcels later, the ASOS ones were my preferred choice after all!
Here’s some inspo.
What will be your footwear of choice this A/W?
