 Call It Spring Boots

This month in the Take10 challenge, the girls and I took on footwear, this time from kooky Canadian shoe brand Call it Spring (do you remember when I wore a pair of their silver Schapp heels?) I do love styling up a pair of shoes as there’s so much opportunity to play with the rest of your outfit and actually, I do often find myself working from the shoes up anyway. Do you ever dress that way? I’ve been looking for a nice pair of cut-out boots ever since they first hit the internet last year but I never quite got round to it. These Kranze ankle boots certainly do the job of being both a comfy heeled every-day boot and an unusual going-out heel. Win!

This slightly oriental outfit was inspired by a shot in last months ASOS magazine which featured Australian street style sweetheart Rachel Rutt sporting a t-shirt with chinese sportswear symbols worn with layered necklaces and baggy trousers. My get-up certainly doesn’t work as well as hers but at least I could make use of an old Superdry t-shirt and useless sized bag that I otherwise both have gotten rid of!

In hind-sight I would have been better off rolling the T-shirt up and knotting it at the waist. Darn it. The boots at least go with the leather jacket and help grunge the lace maxi dress all up a little. I may have got the outfit a little wrong, but at least I’m happy with the footwear!

    Loving the combination of lace skirt and chunky boots, though the OAP in me worries about your ankles being too cold!
