These Boots Are Made For Walking


A few weeks ago I received an email from the lovely people over at Barratts.  They'd seen my recent post describing my failed mission for a pair of boots (click here) and decided I was in need of some obvious help.  Their offer?  To send me a pair of boots of my choice. Well, I nearly keeled over.  In fact I thought it was a new breed of spam email and I waited for the catch.  Turns out there wasn't one.

After spending hours, and I literally do mean hours trawling the endless choices on their website, I finally chose a pair of boots.  I'm quite fussy when it comes to footwear and I had a pretty good idea of what I was after, which sometimes makes things tricky.

     My Checklist

  1. They had to be black
  2. With a broad heel
  3. Could be worn with skinny jeans or dresses
  4. Must not give me a cankle!!!

Two days later my boots arrived and I have to say their website doesn't do them justice.  They look even better in real life.





Not only that but I've had a serious amount of compliments over these boots.  My teenage sister!  My Mother! The Boyfriend!  Even a Builder!!!  It's safe to say I feel fairly smug with my choice and they have certainly become a staple part of my wardrobe.  In fact I have virtually worn them everyday since they've arrived and I think I've even developed a bit of strut!!  I'm not joking!  It's as if the streets have become my catwalk!  I need to remember, I am not a super model and therefore should not walk like one!! Except, I can't help it, these boots make me feel good!  Dare I go as far to say 'they complete me'?  Ok maybe not but they definitely complete my wardrobe!!

I think what I love about these boots is they fit all of my criteria.  They go with everything.  They're comfy.  Look good and sit right on the ankle.  There's nothing worse than wearing a cute dress only for your boots to sit just above your ankle giving the illusion of cankles.  You can tell I've got a hang up over this right?

But enough about my hang ups!  Back to the boots and how I wore them........





Casual drinks with the girls


How I wore them to the office





Sometimes in life there is no catch! And to top it off Barratts have got a massive sale on AND free delivery!!  They really do spoil us!!

  2. These are really cute & the heel is not too high either! I love my black ankle boots but I'm on the look out for a nice pair of knee highs x
