With the first few leaves starting to fall from the trees I am reminded that autumn is knocking at the door.
Autumn and winter are hands down my most favourite times of the year, not just for the start of party season, but the colours and textures of the world around us.
Of course my love of footwear also peaks with my yearly fascination with finding the perfect winter boot. There’s a certain something about putting on a brand new pair of boots that makes me feel excited about what the coming season holds.
Maybe it’s a nostalgic feeling of going back to school with a new bag bursting with yet-to-be-used stationery, a promise to always write in my best handwriting and look after (and most definitely not scuff up) my perfect new shoes.
Who knows, but the feeling has stayed with me all my life and my new season crush for a boot has lead me here . . .
The Nerys wraparound suede and leather ankle boot by Isabel Marant . . . oh my.
For me this little boot could cover all the basics of my new season wardrobe. Team them perfectly with flirty mini skirts, distressed jeans or with a smart black skinny trouser. Any way you look at it, these little boots with their velvety suede texture, contrasting straps and oh-so versatile conical heel would take you (almost) anywhere.
(Dear Shoe God, just so you know, I take a size 40)
