I have to admit, my love of Autumn isn't always so deep and at times rather, well, shallow. My poor feet have taken a battering over the duration of summer thanks to strappy-sandals and unforgiving heels. The arrival of this golden season means I can finally slip on a pair of socks and envelop my feet in boots. Phew! This gorgeous pair of black leather boots have come into my life at exactly the right time. I may have an abundance of high, block-heeled boots to my name, however none of which look elegant enough when dressed in a more 'gentle' outfit. It's hard to look welcoming when your heavy-duty boots make you look as though you wouldn't hesitate to drop kick anyone who looks at you the wrong way. I've well and truly fallen in love with these Dauda Ankle Boots thanks to their elegant design and comfortable heel height.

Speaking as a self-confessed boot hoarder, I'm thrilled to be adding this pair to my collection! They've single-handedly solved my dilemma of finding a pair of boots that work just as well with a dress as they do a pair of jeans - and thanks to their faux fur lining, they'll have solved this dilemma all through winter too!
With my Daniel Footwear ankle boots on, grey polish covering my nails and radiators back on full blast, I'm feeling well and truly prepared for Autumn.. which is just as well, as it's already here! The colours are transforming around us and I can't shake the feeling it's a prompt. Forget January's New Year, nature is telling us this is the time for change...
