As I was browsing shops the other day I walked into a store called Magasín and fell in love with pair of a brown leather Chelsea boots (these if you where curious). It made me think; I have a weird relationship with shoes. Not just clothes or shopping in general, but with shoes in particular.
I think my strange relationship with them goes back to a quote I heard in a movie called “In Her Shoes” which I watched a lot when I was younger. In it, Toni Collette says something along the lines of: “Clothes never look good, and food just makes me fatter but shoes always fit.” And I guess that resonated with me and although I slightly disagree about the food part (food is just too delicious to not buy, whenever you have the chance, and also a great mood booster!) I think that now that I’m an adult, shoes have become one of my favorite things to buy, simply because they ALWAYS FIT.
I don’t have a lot of stilettos and heels but I do have a tonne of boots. I guess because my favorite season is one of the colder ones.
As I said, I have a lot of boots. Boots that have just sort of accumulated over the years. Leather boots in particular has always been my go-to for autumn. They are beautiful, rustic and they last forever. Usually they are also a very good staple in your wardrobe and not something you’ll have to change because it went out of style. They never go out of style.
Here are three boots I think are absolute must-haves for autumn/winter time:
The Chelsea boot:
The Chelsea boot has become very popular in the last couple of years and is one of my absolute favorites. It’s so easy to pull on and looks great. An easy go-to for me and you can get them in every single possible color you can think of.
My favorites are the ones in nature colors, specifically in black and/or brown leather.
The dress boot:
The dress boot is fantastic for an evening out in autumn or winter. A classy leather boot, typically with laces and a very sophisticated and petite look about them. The perfect fit for a long dress and stockings.
The combat boot:
The combat boot is a great work and/or hiking boot. Nothing gets in to them once they’re on, not even water! And they are comfortable and warm as well. The perfect boot for you if you like long walks through the forest or the beach.
The pair I’m sporting in the photos, is an old purchase I made last autumn. One of my pricier purchases for sure, but I’ve used them a lot since then and the quality of them hasn’t decayed.
