Whatever the fashion question is, for me, the answer is always black ankle booties with a conventional heel. So much so, that I often find myself adding heeled-booties to almost every single look – it sort of adds this somewhat polished, put together feel (plus a couple of totally necessary extra inches) whilst still remaining comfortable, effortless and totally chic. I add heeled-booties to everything; boyfriend jeans, short shorts, mini-skirts, summer looks – more recently I even wore a ball gown at my law ball with heeled booties (BLOGGED HERE). I just couldn’t commit to a pair of stiletto heels that night – how exactly would I dance/drink/uber/party 7 inches off the ground?! My thoughts exactly.
ANYWAYS – I recently discovered this Melbourne based brand that specialises in high quality, handmade leather boots (and other totally necessary shoes!) imported from Europe (…so chic!). The brand is called ‘Shoe I Am’ (I know so incredibly fitting) and safe to say – well, I am a huge fan. Plus the owner of the brand runs this campaign that encourages women to feel empowered and be successful. It is some seriously amazing stuff – so much so, that I couldn’t help myself but get entirely around her campaign – so I went ahead and wrote a guest blog post for her site, discussing what it means to be ME and the importance of being YOU.
