Daniel Footwear Dauda Ankle Boots

Daniel Footwear Dauda Ankle BootsAutumn is here!  Yesterday was the first official day of the new season and along with enabling me to wear my new Dauda Ankle Boots by Daniel Footwear, it also brought with it a clean slate, a fresh start!  It's true that nothing stands between us and change, though there's something indescribably refreshing about the start of a new season - there's no denying its ability to motivate.  You may have noticed from my blog that I'm more than a little keen to observe nature (cue laughter), well as I'm looking around now and seeing the colours of nature change, it encourages me to do the same.  Does it have the same effect on you?    

Daniel Footwear Dauda Ankle Boots
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.

Daniel Footwear Dauda Ankle Boots
Daniel Footwear Dauda Ankle BootsSpeaking 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!

Daniel Footwear Dauda Ankle BootsWith 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...

 ''Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.''

  9. Those boots have faux fur lining?! Well it is official, these are the perfect little bootie going round. I love them on you, chic enough to don with something more dressy and simple enough to wear with more casual looks too.

  22. You look radient! Those ankle boots are wonderful. I really like the heel, it is just high enough to make any outfit more feminine and dressed up...and it is not sky high so I imagine they are comfortable to walk in. I do love Autumn and wearing ankle boots and boots is one of those things I really look forward to this season.

    I must say your hair is so beautiful. I love long hair...and your is spectacular...you're like a mermaid. In addition, I do like this black and white styling...so timelessly elegant!
