I need something flat, but not too flat, lace up but not too militant, buckles to add some interest, but not too caliper-like, and they need to be a style that'll go with skirts and jeans. Oh and be comfortable - very, very, comfortable.
So, I've been looking online (my feet ache too much to go real shopping) and have discovered that there's a huge selection out there which fit my criteria.
But which to choose? Well, here's how I made my decision.
I longlisted 9 pairs that I liked and then kept going back for a sneaky peep to see which pair gave me that, you know, buzz, twinge, tummy flip, whatever you want to call it.
Trust me, it’s a good way to make a decision about a lot of things in life, like :
- which photo, out of the 1562 you've just taken of the same outfit, to share on social media
- which colour nail varnish to wear
- which house to rent/buy
- that ever so important conundrum of choosing a potential husband or wife!
Anyway, back to the boots. I then whittled down my longlist to a shortlist of 3 and here they are:
That leaves me with the New Look or Savannah Miller options. If I'm lucky to be given enough money for my birthday (which is very soon!), I'll get the Savannah Miller pair- if less, I'll give the New Look ones a whirl.
Finally, if these don't fit my criteria of being 'very, very, comfortable', then I will have to just make do with what I've already got.
And I'll be totally fine with that decision. I will! Honestly. It'll be fine. Totally fine.
*sobs into cup of tea at the very thought of not getting new boots for her birthday*
