well booted

boots for winter

summer is almost over in london - boo. the cold has set in and you can't leave the house without at least a sweater or light jacket/coat.
 
this change in the weather has had me considering my wardrobe for winter and, in particular, what shoes will serve me best. i think i'm pretty much set on the boots front with the above 4, however having never experienced a london winter i'm not sure i know what i'm in for. i think that i may need a flat boot at some stage, considering the amount of walking we do here, but let's see how long i can last.
 
on a side note, although all of the above boots seem rather fancy, i managed to procure them all through various means and avoided paying anywhere close to full price. the cleane's were a score on ebay after trawling the internet for about 2 years; the pistols were also an awesome ebay (brand new!) find where i made a ridiculously low offer to the seller and which she surprisingly accepted; the stars were a generous birthday gift from my parents; and the scarlets were an 80% off find on forward! i am quite the savvy shopper after all.

  2. Love both Acne styles but don't own either :( How are they in terms of width and comfort?

    1. i have used them so much, i don't know how i survived without them. in terms of comfort, both are really comfortable. probably the pistols slightly more because they aren't as high as the stars. width-wise they are about the same and i would say roomy enough to wear socks with. i probably use my stars more because they are black, but i also feel that they elongate my legs more because they go in at the ankle. i can't recommend them enough. acne are the king of ankle boots.

  5. I love the pistol boots. I live over in Ireland and I have to say that boots are really the only shoes I wear from October to February, so it's worth buying a decent pair or two.

    1. i think living in london might be quite similar, but you definitely need some hardy boots in this part of the world!
