Black Ankle Boots by Ash
One can never have too many ankle boots, especially if that certain someone lives in London where an ankle book is an all-year-rounder! I am a proud owner of a small (or maybe not so small) collection to cater any occasion and outfit choice. However, when these Ash beauties, that Repertoire kindly sent me, arrived at the doorstep I realized there's been a void in my wardrobe.
I am not saying that just because black is universal and the leather is soft ... oh so soft ... but also because the height is perfect and gets me through an 8 (or more) hour day with no pain! *Whoever came up with the expression 'No pain, no gain!' clearly has never worn 6 inch heels to work, or anywhere for that matter.*
Back to the boots now, the ankles are the thinnest part of the leg and it is always flattering to show them off, plus the gunmetal buckles add some edge without being too loud. I am also a big fan of the almond-shaped toe that isn't too round nor too pointy, just perfectly elegant.
Just in case you are wondering, I wear these boots with literally everything - skinny, straight or bootcut jeans, elegant trousers, skirts and dresses. I am yet to find an outfit that they don't compliment.May be yoga pants, they definitely wont look very nice with yoga pants. But then again, I don't own a pair so all is well!
