Good morning everyone, today’s attire is based around these beautiful leopard print sock boots. So I have been keeping a close eye on new arrivals and one of the observations I have made is that ankle boots in the leopard print variety are about to be everywhere. As we all know by now, leopard print this season has been very popular whether it be a coat, skirt, shirt, or dress. So it only makes sense that it’s made it’s way to ankle boots.
Ankle boots have been your best friend whatever the season and have never gone out of style. However the sock style was bought to our attention by Balenciaga and those floral boots. Taking that cue designers and high streets alike have come out with their own versions. Whether they are plain, metallic, knitted or mesh anything goes, as long as it’s a sock boot that feels like a second-skin. With that in mind I have taken my cue from this and decided to style my outfit based around these leopard print sock boots.
In Mum Life this week, I have been tending to the boys as they all have at some point suffered from a sore throat or a cold. So glad to say that it’s their last day at school today as they are off on half-term for a week and this will give them time to recover properly. I am super excited to watch the new series of ‘The Walking Dead’. I can’t express how much I adore that show and how excited I get when it’s on! My preference is to record a few episodes before watching. Therefore giving me the option to watch two or three episodes at a time. I hate having to wait for the next episode, I am not a very patient person. But after having kids I can truly say that I have gotten better.
So lets get back to the ensemble at hand an to these Leopard print sock boots which are from H&M. I wanted something a little different in the leopard print and when I came across these sock boots they just ticked the box of what I was looking for. These boots come in imitation leather with a jersey top section with pointed toes, and covered kitten heels. At a bargain whats not to love about them! They still have a few sizes available if you are interested so take a look here.
Moving onto my cigarette trousers which are also from H&M. Whilst I was browsing on the H&M site I cam across these gorgeous pair of check cigarette trousers. The check is almost the same as my Karen Millen coat, and therefore I could not resist buying them. Just envisioned wearing them together as a set! These trousers come in a stretch weave with a fly, as well as a hook-and-eye fastener and tapered legs. They feel great on and I just love to throw them on when I am doing the morning school drop off.
This Heritage Check Double-Breasted coat is from Karen Millen. A perfect checked coat which is a must-have in my opinion. It is tailored to perfection and fits perfectly, absolutely love how the cigarette trousers and this coat look like they are part of a set. I was so pleased with myself once I a saw these two items on together. Just elevates the whole entire look!
Next and onto my vest jumper from Jigsaw. This vest jumper is from a very old season and was at the back of my draw of knit wear. I wanted a jumper that would tie in with my bag and rather then buying a new one I opted to wear this vest one instead. The jumper is so soft and comfortable and not itchy at all. With the current weather situation I can wear it without my coat and not feel chilly.
Keeping in with the brown tone I opted from my Karen Millen Fur Bag. My furry friend is just the perfect accessory in my opinion in this look. Ties in beautifully with my vest jumper and is big enough to carry all my essentials too. Fashionable and practical at the same time!
To add some colour I wore my current favourite red matt lipstick from Lime Crime Velvetines in the shade Red Velvet. For the finishing touches I wore my black sunglasses from Michael Kors, these are a vintage pair. Finally finishing off the whole look I wore my gold Cylinder ring from Aurate New York.
Here are a few more ankle boots to inspire you:
Animal print ankle boots: So there is no getting away from this trend and this season no animal print is off the table, be it snake, zebra or leopard.
Cowboy ankle boots: These western boots have been a firm favourite this season, taking over instagram and worn at most fashion shows.
