A/W ’16 Boots Wishlist – Metallics, Prints & The Classics

Autumn Winter Boots Wishlist
With the arrival of September, means the coming of shorter and of course colder days. I, for one, am absolutely delighted that Autumn is finally here. Try as I might, I’m just not a Summer girl when it comes to fashion. It goes without saying that we didn’t exactly get very good weather in Ireland this Summer meaning we didn’t get very much wear out of our Summer wardrobes. That’s what I love about the Autumn/Winter season – we are guaranteed to get endless wear out of the pieces we buy. Although, that definitely isn’t the only reason why I’m A/W mad – I love, love, LOVE the darker, richer palettes and colours, the layering and the sheer cosiness of winter dressing. Let’s not forget all the fun accessories we get to play around with in this season too.. I mean if you don’t like a collarless coat in Summer then good luck, it’s not being worn, but in Winter, throw a fur collar or cashmere scarf around the neck and it’s totally transformed.

Anyone that is familiar with my blog or just me, will know that shoes are definitely my vice. I have an absolute weakness when it comes to them, 0% self control! Some girls are bag girls or make up girls but me, I’m definitely a shoe girl. That’s why I thought it only made sense to kick start my A/W wishlists with my one true love, shoes and in particular boots. There are SO many beautiful pairs out there at the moment that it literally took me half a day to narrow down my favourites to a mere 12 pairs. Now is definitely the time to be thinking of looking for your boots for the coming season – some people might think it’s crazy to be looking at them now but now is the time that you will have the choice of selection and size. Come the end of November when you realise you need a new pair, the selection will be half of what it is now…trust me! This year the big trends for footwear are metallic and animal print and of course the classic black ankle boot will always feature. Here’s some of my favourites!
