5 Pairs of Boots That You Need For (Grown Up) Dressing Up

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Nothing helps you ooze confidence more than a decent pair of boots. So I thought I’d do another post on my favourite thing about fashion. I can’t believe how many of you read my recent post on Manolo Bhlanik so it’s great to see that you guys love shoes as much as me!
Kitten heel, high heel, ballet pump, sandal, boot, knee boot, over the knee boot… The colours, shapes, fabrics… I love everything about shoes. In fact, my shoe collection completely outweighs my clothes collection. They’re about the only thing I have trouble selling, donating or giving away to friends and family.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”17842″ img_size=”full”][vc_single_image image=”17846″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]


[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]I have to say though, my current storage is not doing my shoes any justice. I would love one of those fancy shoe cupboards but alas, pull out drawers in my wardrobe will have to do for now. I think back to the time I spent doing some private styling work for women and all the times I advised clients on how to store boots. It gives me a pang of guilt, imagine if they could see how I’m keeping mine!
But storing boots and shoes is a whole other blog post (yes, it’s really that detailed).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”17848″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”17847″ img_size=”full”][vc_single_image image=”17850″ img_size=”full”][vc_single_image image=”17841″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]


I’ve marvelled at Gucci, spent too long on late at night and considered selling my own daughter to afford some Vetements x Manolo Blahnik boots. Just kidding.
Now before I go all dictatorial on you and tell you what you should be buying (because lets face it, right now I’m going to live vicariously through you because hello, no more storage), I want to let you in on a secret. I used to think that boots and shoes were the best investment of all time. Feet don’t change size, or so I thought. I was a size 6, then when pregnant I reached a size 8. Now I’m a firm 7. So remember kids, think about this before you buy. Secondly, passing them on to your daughter is not a justification to buy because – she may have different size feet to you. I know. Shock/horror right?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”17845″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
