They are very nice boot, not wellies or anything grin

Not entirely unreasonable, no. And I think that wellies might work well toogrin.

I am a bit fed up of shaving my legs and stuff too. You can hide a multitude of sins in a nice pair of boots... wink

Boots are good. We like boots. Knee-length skirt, or a bit higher, tights and nice boots. Excellente. So says the Style God.

I'm wearing my boots today.... and rather enjoying it!

No, had this conversation with my DM this morning, shes accompanying DS to her final wedding dress fitting this afternoon but has broken her little toe and she was wondering which pair on her sandals to wear as she does'nt want to be hobbling around the underground barefoot grin.

I've told her I feel boots are more appropriate given the weather, her retort 'it's august', my response, 'have you looked outside?' hmm

Mine are in the loft.

I've worn boots twice this "summer" hmm

was a shock when I put on ankle boots with a one inch heel the other day as my feet were agony after an hour (and I wore them 8 hours a day last winter)

been wearing birkies for the last month so all heels are now agony - if I wasn't so short i would buy birkie winter clogs hmm and not bother with heels ever again

I had my boots on today. I am SOOOOOOO sick of this incessant rain! It has rained up here (Edinburgh) for practically two bloody months and then we went to Wales on holiday and it bloody rained the whole time there! I am so over this 'summer' Bring on the nice sunny autumn days! smile

have seen plenty of people in boots this week
and opaque tights
and one lady in a winter coat yesterday
aaah the wonderful british summer....

I was thinking of starting a thread about wishing it would stop bloody raining.
It's like living in Norway!!

Yes....pissing down here as well.

I officially decided summer was over about 4 weeks ago, and bought some long sleeved tops.

Then it was hot for 3 weeks...but the tops have come out again

I'm wearing boots today, and was yesterday. I always heave a hearty sigh of relief when summer buggers off, as I love my boots, what with having truly repulsive feet and all. Go Autumn!

katiepotatie Tue 12-Aug-08 14:54:39

Yes still pissing down here (Edinburgh) Wore boots to work last week, looks like the same for tomorrow too. Not had a chance to wear my sandals much sad

We're going to Drymen near Loch Lomand next week. Hopefully all the rain will drown the fecking midges. At least that'll be some compensation for the shit weather.

These are very excellent responses and my mind is now made up. I will wear boots tomorrow. I DO hope it doesn't get hot and bugger up my plans....
