Fashion is never really something I’ve found myself get into unlike makeup. I tend to not follow latest fashion trends as I always feel like a flump in almost anything I wear (body confidence is definitely not my strong point). But one fashion trend which I fell in love with and adore is knee high boots, especially grey knee high boots. When I was contacted by XY London asking if I wanted to review a pair of shoes from their website I opted for the Lorna Faux Suede Grey Knee High Boots * over a pair of summer sandals. I’ve never been one for sandals as I hate feet with a passion. It could be 35 degrees outside and I’ll still wear either trainers or boots.
If you haven’t heard of the brand before (I definitely didn’t!), XY London are an online shoe shop who specialise in providing gorgeous shoes at low prices. They sell all sorts of shoes from trainers to boots to sandals, basically shoes for any occasion. They also have a selection of handbags for sale as well however I noticed they were mainly clutch bags, which are perfect for the wedding season.
The Lorna Faux Suede Grey Knee High Boots *
These are super comfy to wear and a perfect fit. They are stretchy due to the elastic black material running up the back. There is also have a zip which runs on the inside of the leg. They have a cute tassel tie up at the top of the boots but even without knotting this up the boots dont fall down. I do have another pair of knee high boots which are specifically for nights out as they have a heel but they fall down constantly. Its such an annoyance having to pull them up every half an hour so to own a pair that don’t do this is a huge advantage. The gold trim down the bottom gives the boots that extra glam feeling. When I walked through wet grass (joys of Scottish weather), it didn’t seep through the shoe leaving my feet wet.
You can pair up these boots with almost any outfit. Denim dress, skirt or just how I do it, with a simple pair of skinny jeans and a printed tee. It has basically become my go to outfit. Due to go on a night out and forgot to shave your legs? Pair these with a dress and no one will ever know. Going on a shopping trip with the girls with a lunch date included? These with a cute handbag to match and you’re good to go. A great hack with knee high boots is when you’re on a night out and worried someone might steal your phone from your bag or you’ll lose your bag, pop it in a boot. Something I do every time I head out as no one will ever think to look in there (Heather’s hacks 101).
