the style post | river island boots to make you swoon



boots - river island via asos (£45)
 i know it's not common for me to post at all on a saturday, never mind doing four style posts in a week but i couldn't not post about these lovely shoes that came in the post today. i ordered them a couple of days ago as i wanted some new boots for winter i think i might have found them in these babies.

when they first arrived i didn't know whether they were really my cup of tea so i put a few pictures of them on facebook, instagram and twitter to see what everyone else thought and it was a unanimous 'yes!' so i think they might just be my new children. 

i bought a pair of chelsea boots around this time last year and although i still really like them i wanted a change and a pair that were a little more clunky and masculine and i think these ones fit the bill. they have a block heel with metal detailing, a buckle over the elastic part and both patent and suede lining. they are a bit of a squash to get on as the top is so tight but i personally hate it when boots are really baggy around the top so these are just right for me! i like wearing them best with a girly dress and some lovely frilly socks poking over the top to counter-balance the masculinity of the shoes. 

these will be great little workers for me over winter and i really can't wait to start stomping about in them around uni and over winter!
