Ready, set... AUTUMN!
The yo-yo weather is back and we all know what that means - Autumn just landed.
You might wake up to a balmy 20-something degree day and by lunch time, it's blowing a gale and pouring with rain. Well, it is in Melbourne anyway. All you northerners can stop being smug now. We're not jealous (yes we are).
That means from here on in, we're all about trans-seasonal style. Ankle boots are the perfect solution because they’ll keep your feet warm and dry on those cooler mornings and evenings, and you’ll still be comfortable during the day if the sun pops out.
Sensational Autumn style
Ankle boots are also a chic style statement that will make any outfit look just that little bit more somethin' somethin' while still being supremely comfortable. And that's why we love them!
This month, I've teamed up with Cheri from Cheribomb Retro to bring you some bootilicious Autumn style. Cheri and I have each chosen an ankle boot to wear with the different looks. What do you think? Who wore it better...?
Cheri's pick: Celebrate vintage style in comfort. The TO DIE FOR (@shoeenvy - Cheri really needs these!!!) Tokyo Dusk boots teamed with the timeless Julien dress. Subtle Japanese toned styling with a vintage twist!
Heather's pick: Ok I'm always slightly anxious about fetishising Sailor Moon when I say this but I adore nautical-themed outfits and I am crushing hard on this Julien dress. I think it would look smashing with Ravishing Rose boots in glossy red and a bright red lip as a nod to 1940s vintage style.
Heather's pick: Floral is such a pretty look but it's also bold enough to handle the strong contrast of a monochrome pop like White Tiger boots. I've always loved the zing of a daring print clash and this is one of my favourites.
I love the nightlife
Cheri's pick: Top and tail with delicate details! The Tatyana Alika dress is a gorgeous full circle 50’s style dress with the lushest detailing along the neckline. Team with the Tokyo Cherryblossom ankle boots - true vintage style with a red that pops!
Heather's pick: The delicate detailing on the neckline of this dress makes it sizzle with Shoe Envy Lace boots, also featuring delicate lace detailing. The lush snake texture of these pretty little boots gives them a sassy edge that makes this look perfect for after dark.
Green with envy
Heather's pick: Lush emerald green is beautifully offset by the gorgeous floral stylings of Tokyo Dawn, with its soft neutral beige and pretty flowers. A feminine combination.
Cheri's pick: The creme-de-la-creme of the full blown urban cowgirl! Team the Rockabilly Gal dress by Happy Yellow dress with the OMG AMAZE Ravishing Rose ankle boots! Like seriously lassoo my heart and bring me home, cowgirl.
Heather's pick: I am besotted with polka dots and while you'd normally see me doing something wild with colours and print clashes, just for a change, I'm going with a glorious neutral on this one. The heavily textured upper of Caramel Tart is just enough detail to allow it to hold its own beside this gorgeous cowgirl number.
