All I wanted for Christmas was a break with my folks and a bit of extra kip so imagine my surprise when my boyfriend presented me with this pretty pair of See By Chloe Nostrum boots. Made out of soft nappa black leather and with a low-heel of 5.5cm to boot (sorry), I think these are the perfect pair to replace the aforementioned Carvela Squats (see the has anyone seen my boot post).
As far as I can tell, they are from the AW 2012 collection but, to be honest, I wouldn’t care if they were years old. I think the silver eyelet detailing adds a note of interest to this pretty classic pair of ankle boots. What’s more, they work well with just about everything in my wardrobe. I teamed them with a new jumper dress and my Barbour jacket for a casual day look at the weekend and, boy, did they look a treat. When it comes to comfort, these are easily comparable to my Onitsuka Tiger trainers (which I love).
I must admit that it’s always fun to splash out at the sales but over the years I’ve become more selective about what I buy. I’ve saved so I can purchase what I like to (my boyfriend’s amusement) call investment buys and now own a few designer items that I wear and wear. This pair of See By Chloe Nostrum boots will definitely fall into this category in terms of my wardrobe.I know that these are going to become my style staple.
Never mind New Year, New You, these new boots are just one of the brilliant small changes I’m going to make in 2013.
Happy New Year everyone!
