The weather is pretty grim out there as I sit at my desk tapping away. The rain is coming down in sheets. Despite that, Autumn is such a gorgeous time of year. I love kicking through leaf piles as I stroll along. There's something so fun and childlike about kicking crunchy leaves. I love doing it with the boys too!
Autumn and winter is a time for boots. OK, if I'm honest, about 10 months of the year in the UK is boot time.. but they are essential at this time of year. For years and years I have been a calf to knee height boot devote. However, over the last year I have definitely found love for ankle boots. I'm not a total convert, I still love my knee highs. I have a foot in both camps, as it were, just not at the same time, I don't think even I could get away with that as a "look".
Ankle boots are everywhere. They vary from cheap as chips (£8 in Primarni - just how do they do that? Not a good thought) to crazy money. There's quite a few in the middle price range though. The "more than I'd normally pay but these will last me a few seasons and the quality is great" range.
As I'm sure you already know, I recently became a consultant with Me&i, the ethical Swedish clothing company. When they announced a few weeks ago that they were bringing out an ankle boot, I'll admit I did a happy dance. This isn't just any ankle boot. It's a very on trend Chelsea wedge boot with a beautiful and Autumnal flash of cayenne elastic to make them easy to slip on and off (brilliant for the school run!).
Well, today my friends, these boots are available for sale. All sales consultants are eagerly anticipating orders. And most of them want them ourselves. I know I do. I do need (hehe) a pair of comfy and easy to slip on boots for the cold and yucky school runs so I'm going to put some money by this month and buy myself a pair as soon as I can. If, unlike me, you aren't strapped for cash just now and you are in the market for a new pair of boots, I'd recommend these! They are made in Portugal (known as one of the best places in the world for quality leather). The leather is vegetable tanned which means it's as close to organic as you can get and, as with everything Me&i, they are ethically produced in a factory paying proper wages. You can only buy the boots via a consultant, so if you are interested, let me know, I'm your gal! You can check out my facebook page for more info!
