You might remember I mentioned these metallic boots in my round up of the best ankle boots for AW14. It all started with a notion in my head that I wanted some bronze boots. Additionally, I was scouring the internet for comfortable boots knowing that my heel wearing would be limited this winter. Dina recommended Esska as a great brand for comfort and they had these bronzed beauties new in stock - I love it when a plan comes together. I'm a sucker for an interesting back story also - busy mum who was an architect and retrained as a shoe designer.
There was a major tick in the comfort box when I tried them on - supportive but with a bit of a bounce to absorb impact. And the packaging was great too.
But how to wear them? Now I will be honest, I struggled with them initially as I thought they stood out too much on me...they felt a bit too shiny. But I did the usual googling and 'pinteresting' thing to get some inspiration..
...and tried them out at home a few different ways and realised that they work best if you go with the bronze/warm tones....leading to this outfit, which I wore the other day.
Jacket - Warehouse (old via eBay)
Scarf - Present (old)
Jeans - Limited @ M&S
Mint Green Top - Primark (old)
Boots - Esska Amy Bronze
Having seen a few other pictures on google in recent days, I also think they'll look lovely with a blazer style jacket and a big scarf - in a nod to the equestrian look...a bit like this outfit seen on Melanie Sykes recently. Though I'm not sure if I'm ready for the peaked hat yet though...
Another addition to my ankle boot collection....in my defence, I didn't keep the M&S pointy ones...but while I'm fessing up, I might have 'acquired' a different pair from elsewhere...more later this week!
