I have a nightmare getting jeans to fit but managed to get 2 pairs of boyfriend fit ones similar to these which have been wearing to death with ballet pumps in the sun and now brown suede converse plimsoles as it's getting colder. Am keen to keep wearing them as winter approaches but they look naff with my usual leather knee high boots under them (looked like was wearing brown wellies underneath!). Have tried on a couple of the brouge type but they didn't seem to fit with the style of the jeans. Does anyone have any suggestions? Am a total shopaphobic so have no clue where to start!
Oh! Coveting the Ash boots but not smart enough... Will need to come up with another excuse to justify frivolous Ash boot purchase reason why I need those. Campers are good idea - bit more grown up. Think am definitely looking for brown rather than black. Great suggestions though folks - cheers!
My boyfriend jeans only look okay when rolled up. I wore them with flipflops or wedge sandals in the summer and the only way I will contemplate wearing them in Autumn is if I can ever manage to find some nice grey heeled ankle boots. I think Converse and full length straight jeans make people look like they have clown feet.
La Redoute have some lurrrvly chic boots right now, ankle and knee, they're beautiful. I just wouldn't feel right in any sort of sporty type shoe and must be the only person on MN to despise Boden. I prefer ballet pumps if weather ok, boots over skinnies if raining or super cold.
