Rocking The Lotus Booties From Brantano!

Rocking The Lotus Booties From Brantano!

Change of weather means new wardrobe, right? Out with the old, that’s so last season season, you really need to think ‘on-trend’ daaaaaarling. Ok, so maybe I’m bigging up the I’m a trendy mum thing a little. I’m really not that bling. But I do try with a little edgy fashion pieces so I give a 7/10 effort in the style stakes once in a while. This autumn is all about changing my mantra for dressing for comfort and not for style. That sucks when you’re 40 and age becomes a little bit more than a number. So I’m swapping the fail safe boots for a welcome night on the tiles for some Lotus booties / shboots / shoe-boots. (?)

Call them what you like, I’m really not precious for the name, (or any the wiser after Googling it.) Shaped like a low cut ankle boot, they’re a sight lot more comfortable to walk in as they hug your foot (no toe curling to keep them on, you see) than my impulsive buy sparkly black high heels I have been sporting down the local wine bar lately. And wobbling home in for all the wrong reasons.

New season, new shoes, or booties to be precise. I've been wearing these from Lotus with jeans or a little black dress now we're into autumn fashion

After browsing the range of feet eye candy on the Brantano website, (uber quick delivery Brantano, high five to that!) these beauties stood out straight away. The jacquard print and metal details are real swoon worthy booties, jazzing up a simple emsemble of black jeans and top or even a trendy, not too formal LBD outfit. Showing off the ankle means they don’t shorten your leg length too much which sometimes, booties and dresses have a danger of doing.

And the side zip means they’re easy to slip on or off after dancing the night away, while the heel is a sensible height avoiding any Naomi Campbell moments while you navigate your way across the room for a visit to the little girls room.

So now I’ve got the footwear in place and a couple of outfits to wear them with, that just leaves me to organise some more nights out.

Not that I need much persuading at the moment!

loving these booties, perfect for dressing up jeans or a little back dress this autumn and winter

    THis is the second pair of boots I’ve seen on #triedandtested this week and it’s making me super excited about getting out the Autumn clothes! Look fab.

    Oh, I do like these -and the fact that they’re blue and not black also makes them a bit different.
    Very smart!

I'd love to know what you think?
