Weekend Wardrobe: Boots, But Which Ones?

Ok, so maybe not these boots.

With all due respect to the designers, I’m not brave enough – wish I was but – No, most likely not.

I do like a boot and I do like a boot with a tight ankle closure; not exactly “sock” but something that emphasises the narrowness of the ankles and legs when they peep out from behind their pants. This style also works well with a longer coat or dress, especially with opaque tights.


Who am I kidding? I love a boot and many varying styles come to think of it. A cowboy works; a chunky heel is a favourite and even a stiletto in the right leather and shape. An over-the-knee, if it’s just right, can do it for me as can a Chelsea shape or riding boot. The only boots I’m not partial to are those that sit under the knee socket; they shorten the leg and oftentimes leave an unfortunate gap between hemline and boot finish.  Wonder Woman might be the only exception.

Boots like bags are a wardrobe unto themselves.

This weekend I have found one to add to the collection.

The heel is perfect and not too high or too low; the suede is not only form fitting but also waterproof. It does seem a little too early in the year to talk boots but these are worth popping away for the next few months. They are on sale and won’t be for long.

Black or sapphire works for me; they are a steal with this deal. xv

I agree, these boots are fantastic. I bought the chocolate as I have so many short boots in black already, but am considering the sapphire as well.

If there is one thing I have probably too many of, it is boots. . .I do miss them in the summer! Those suede boots are fantastic–the waterproofing sounds amazing. My current favorite boots are dark grey suede ankle boots with a chunky heel, but I don’t wear them in the rain for fear of spoiling the suede. Lucky for me I live where we get very little rain, especially this past few years. (Well, that’s actually a problem, of course.) It won’t be cool enough to wear any of my beloved boots here in the SW USA for probably at least 4 months; though maybe I can pretend it’s cool enough sooner, and just push it a bit. Meanwhile, I’ll be imagining the rest of you in this lovely footwear!


I just clicked on the link and THAT is a perfect boot. I’ve been wearing my old mid-calf boots all summer, even in the garden! I need to go shopping to get something like this, nice and slender, that will not bunch up my pants!
