Or would it look ridiculous?

Thanks smile

With a fairly casual style dress, yes.

Not with anything too 'worky'.

Lovely boots smile .

My work dresses are fairly casual looking, tea dresses, that sort of thing

CherryBonBon Mon 10-Aug-15 15:06:52

Yeah definitely will good then.

I love a good tea dress smile .

Thanks Cherry, I love them but I tried them today when had bare legs so I couldn't get a realistic idea of how they would look with my autumn / winter opaque tights

Side view.

Lovely,. are you going to share where they're from??

PetiteBateau Mon 10-Aug-15 19:11:10

My friend just said they are "man shoes"!! sad

They are not my cup of tea but I can totally see then working with tea dresses and opaque tights.

I love them.

Accentuate your femininity in the rest of your outfit or your hair and make up and the shoes won't look 'manly', instead they'll enhance your womanliness smile

As Holger says if the rest of your outfit/look is feminine then the boots will look great.

I wear tea dresses with opaquea and brogues. It's the same idea. Looks great smile .

Thanks everyone, I think they are brogue-ish but a bit more feminine than proper brogues smile I'm going to go back & try them on while wearing tights at the weekend.

I wear Clark's desert boots with 50 denier and tunic or tea dresses for work, no bother.

PetiteBateau Mon 10-Aug-15 20:01:59

They are so comfy. If only they were navy though

PrimalLass Mon 10-Aug-15 20:34:10

It's a no from me.

QueenQueenie Mon 10-Aug-15 20:51:04

So where are they from OP? Please share!
