THESE BOOTS WERE MADE FOR, WELL; WALKING I GUESS

...and keeping my feet warm and posing in and all such other necessities.


I have sort of re-found boots. After many autumns and winters of many boots I had a time when I somehow found it hard to wear and pair them, as boots in general do not go that well with the styles of forties and fifties fashion. So I got a bit stuck on that and didn't want to mess styles up. But there are of course no rules of what to wear and what to combine and, style goes back and forth and develops all the time; I have less long and wide hems for the moment, plus I have also notice I have become a bit more practical with time*. So I got over it and the boots are back so to say!

Last year I dug out my cognac colored heeled ones and they have been walking me around a lot since. This fall I got myself a pair of grey blue suede boots online that went back once and now finally arrived in a one size smaller version. Yey.

*(Yes yes, some people would think of sneakers or something else when saying they got practical shoes but we have to remember who we are dealing with her. And these are in fact rather comfy aand not that high, but naah yes I know, the playground and sand box on a rainy days will require something else. Good thing I still have my old workwear boots borrowed from the harbour around!)

The boots are Pier One / Zalando and the bag is from Accessorize, the latest one in my quest for that perfect day bag. But that quest is for another time to go on about.

Yes I do say it in the post already; that they are rather comfy. But infact they're super comfy more than rather :) The sizing runs somewhat big, so size down if on between.

What's your opinion about being a vegetarian and wearing leather shoes ? I am trying to work on a pair of vegan winter boots for my shoe collection, but it's really hard to find a good fabric...

Love the shoes, they look really nice :)

Frollein von Sofa : I think that if one goes for a 100% vegan lifestyle that should include the textiles as well. In the end most of my shoes are of man made material, and the fake suede and pleather ones works pretty well I think, sometimes it's hard to tell the difference.
