Clarks Ankle Boots: My Winter Staple!









I'm not one for featuring fashion finds on the blog, one because I'm not extremely fashionable and two, because I'm really fussy and opinionated when it comes apparel. These babies from Clarks however have been my Winter staple since the past few weeks and I thought they deserved a shout out on the blog!

If you're fussy like me when it comes to Boots, these will tick all the right boxes for you. I liked these at first instance not because they were extremely quirky or fashionable but in fact they looked quite versatile and wearable. I personally like full value for money and these look great with dresses, jumper tops and leggings alike.

I have a soft spot for suede and as you can see, the front has a lot of it going on there. The chic snake effect leather print at the back adds a nice mix of textures still keeping it quite soft and muted. The heel is around 2 to 2.5 inches which is just about perfect for my train commute and walking-around-the-city journeys, considering anything above that heel size just leads me to tripping almost everywhere - no joke.

Of course these being ankle boots allow my skinny jeans to tuck into them seamlessly. I cannot stand boots that are higher and end just mid-way through the leg, leaving an awkward situation for the jeans, especially if they are not as skinny as mine (thank god for Topshop!).

The mushroom brown colour I choose on purpose as I was tired of sporting tans that stood out a bit too much and pitch blacks that did just nothing for the apparel. I believe these were for £60 but seeing how absolutely comfortable they are and how I haven't slipped wearing them even a single time which is a rare occasion for me, they are well worth the money.
