… about boots. I have FOUND SOME BOOTS I CAN WEAR.
I was on a shoot for my M&S column today and they had these black buckley boot things and they are utterly tremendous in every way. DO NOT DISMISS THEM! because you think they will be clumpy or look odd or be uncomfortable. They just look entirely modern and way, way more expensive than they actually are, which is £75.
They are also not heavy and extremely comfortable and soft and will require no breaking in whatsoever. The magic about them for me is that they taper slightly at the ankle, so I do not look like I am wearing bins or flowerpots on my feet, just a very good pair of boots.
They will add a touch of menace to any outfit, (which I find is pretty much essential if I am going to get through the day), and allow you to wear midi-dresses and skirts well into December because they will keep your feet warm and dry and will not instantly stain and crumple on contact with this country’s winter weather policy (rain for 3 months, then freeze).
Probably the best part is that they also come in half sizes. Get a pair. Get a pair now.
