Winter Boots – Bringing the Sexy Back

I have been searching for a pair of black over the knee winter boots for a couple of seasons now but nothing was really tickling my fancy in terms of the price I was going to have to pay for no real point of difference. I am certainly not shy when it comes to shelling out the cash for a good pair of shoes, however I like them to be a little bit special.

Yet again I’m a little disappointed with what is out there so I’m thinking flag the over the knee flat variety and go for a sexy, stiletto heeled black ankle boot. I plan on wearing these to do the groceries as well as out for a night on the town (these days whipping to the supermarket for another box of nappies is a far more frequent occurrence than sipping cocktails in a classy bar!) so they will still need to be (somewhat) comfortable.

We head to Australia in a couple of weeks so I’m going to refrain from purchasing online until I’ve had a good look through David Jones (and many other stores!), but here is what is catching my eye on the internet so far, as well as some images to show you the look I’m channeling.

Witchery to the Rescue

I have been on the hunt for a new pair of brown boots for a while now. Last season there was nothing special to replace a pair from Topshop that I had completely worn to death (cue wet socks if any sign of a puddle). I did have a tough criteria: 1. a low heal (they will be a winter work staple and I am on my feet for most of the day) 2. an interesting shade of brown 3. some form of detail to provide a point of difference.

I have finally added brown boots back to my work wardrobe (to be honest they will probably make their way to weekend brunch dates too)  when I bought these beauties from Witchery.

I love the colour which is actually lighter than shown in the pic above (hubby called it ‘mannequin’ but I’m inclined to go with camel), they are super comfy and they have that extra detail I was after in the form of the metal and leather strap at the back of the ankle.

I was pretty impressed with the Autumn/Winter collection at Witchery, especially the shoes. I am thinking this, these and especially these would make great additions to my wardrobe.
