Tuesday Shoes-Day

Geox Marian Black Leather Ankle Boot

Urgh. When will it stop raining? Rich said to me this morning that one of his school friends posted on Facebook “bring back the snow all is forgiven”. She’s right! I’m totally fed up of re-wearing the same shoes as only a handful of pairs keep my feet warm and dry. This is such a pair.

I bought these at the end of 2012 and they have featured on here a few times since. Formal or casual, they’re great – just the right heel height for trotting around town.

Today I’m wearing them with:

Zebra print shirt – Topshop
Black Leather Full Skirt – HM
Black tights – Wolford

I’ve put my hair up today as yesterday I felt bedraggled. Another side effect of the wind and rain. At least this way it stays put.

Tomorrow I’m off to sunnier climes that are South Florida for some time at Head Office and a small jaunt around the Southern Caribbean on Carnival Breeze. Although I’m working I will be glad to see some Sunshine (although wishing my guys were coming with me!)

Tuesday Shoes-Day

Geox Black Ankle Boots

 

Geox Marian Black Leather Ankle Boots

I’ve been on the search for a pair of Black Ankle boots that are on the smarter end of the scale for a while now, and when I saw these in a shop locally, they fitted the bill nicely. Not too high, and made with Geox’s patented breathable rubber sole, they were the ideal choice for both looks and practicality.

I’d heard of the brand before, but not really given them a second thought. They are really comfortable, and today, post the snow we had on Monday, I walked about three miles in them, Tuesday’s being the day I drop Wee-Man off at Nursery. Not a sore foot in sight.

They look good with skirts and skinny jeans, and the bonus is that they aren’t too wide on the ankle. I know some people would kill for this problem, but my ankles are pretty skinny, so lots of ankle boots are too baggy, making them look like I’m wearing my Dad’s boots!

Today, I’m wearing them with:

  • Navy and Cream Wool dress – George
  • Black Opaque Tights – Wolford

I hate wearing Black with Navy, but I was in such a rush this morning, the end result wasn’t too bad (although I am having a bad hair day!)

Do you have a favourite pair of Black Booties? What are they – I’d love to know.
