I have at least another month of hot weather here so it is hard to fathom that the Fall issues of Vogue and Harper’s are now hitting my mail box. It always gets me quite excited about sweaters, boots and coats but this year I have resolved not to bring them out too early, and wait for the appropriate weather, instead of forcing Fall on my closet!
At the end of last winter I sat pretty smugly saying to myself ‘I won’t need to buy anything new next winter!’. Ha Ha Ha! As if! The first thing on my list for this autumn/winter season is a pair of biker boots. As you know I pretty much have every style of boots available – too many Rag & Bone Newburys, Isabel Marant Dickers, Chloe Susannas and Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots – oh and a pair of Rag & Bone Chelsea boots bought off The Outnet last year. Believe it or not I do not have a pair of biker boots to wear with skinny jeans and an oversized sweater. The more I search Pinterest for inspiration the more I know I really need a pair…ok want a pair….

This is the pair I have just ordered – AllSaints have the most amazing boots but they are usually so expensive. These Shoreditch boots are 50% off with an extra 20% off using code Extra20. They only have the chocolate color left though I have to say this is my preference anyway over black. I think they are far less severe and will age far better than black. They are also the perfect height as they can be teamed with both skinnies or rolled up boyfriend jeans.
There are only a couple of sizes left in this Kawai Shearling boot – but well worth looking at just for the fact that it is shearling lined! So cozy for winter.
Frye is always a go to brand for boots – boots that will last a lifetime and priced to reflect that, but I have found a couple of discounted pairs too. These are my favorites.
The quintessential Frye Veronica Slouch – 24% off here too! Available in brown too.
I absolutely love the Frye Valerie tall – the buckles are fabulous. They also do a shorter version here which is also shearling lined.
Next up Rag & Bone can’t go wrong with boots. I have a shorter version of these that I bought off The Outnet – but these are the classic biker boot with a more subtle stud rather than a buckle.
So what’s your verdict on the biker boot? I can’t wait to receive my All Saints pair – comfort and a little edginess and perfect for crappy weather!
As for the past few days it’s been a very lazy weekend that included a Sunday roast and lots of Olympics – I feel a void now they’re over! Today I’m back in the office on a cooler less humid day so the jeans are back out!
