Yikes, I know it's been a long time since my last post — it's not so much that I am lacking content (I am sitting on way too many unpublished photos that I'd love to share eventually), but more so that I've gotten a bit confused about what my blog should portray. It used to be a purely fun and personal space, but now I'm always worried that something I post may turn off a potential future client (who knows what someone might find offensive or off-putting?). And then, I decided to put that notion aside and post about... ankle boots. Yes, seriously.
I used to avoid ankle boots like the plague, because I have the shortest legs of anyone I know and ankle boots would not help conceal that fact. Yet, somehow this year I now have four ankle boots in rotation. And they're all very wearable. And they're all at very different price points. I not-so-subtly placed them in height order based on price. So the pair resting on the floor is the cheapest, and so on.
1 / DV by Dolce Vita Jamison Bootie in Taupe. I got these last February on sale and have worn them to pieces since. They were a great ankle boots starter pair.
2 / J.Crew MacAlister Wedge Boots in Mink. At least half of my girlfriends have at least one pair of these. Comfortable and go with anything pretty much. My only issue is that even the size 5 (!) is a bit big on me. And I'm a true size 6, so I'm not sure what's going on there.
3 / A.P.C. Stacked Heel Ankle Boots in Caramel. It was hard to pass these up after miss sophie's glowing review. Then I found them on sale at SSENSE left only in my size — surely a sign nudging me in the right direction.
4 / Burberry Ankle Strap Boots. I had my eye on these for a while when I was looking for a solid pair of black ankle boots. Despite their manly appearance, they won over some Acne and Isabel Marant contenders. I finally picked them up at Bloomingdale's Friends and Family sale. The quality is pretty impeccable, and I imagine they will last me for years and years.
Does this make me officially ankle boot-obsessed? I hope for both of our sakes, my next post will not be so frivolous. Or maybe some small percentage of you will find this post useful. ;)
