TRANSITION: DAY THIRTY
DAY THIRTY: Snake print slippers, Jones Bootmaker
At long last, the final installment of Transition. Apologies for the delay but what with the monsoon-like rain, winds and generally grey skies, I've been stuck back in my winter clothes and Converse for the last few days and I don't like lying to you all or being totally ridiculous like 'oh yeah, its pissing rain but here I am in some silky trousers and some sunglasses!'
I've been hoarding several new pairs of shoes for a few weeks now, just waiting for the weather to get better so that I could finally start wearing them. Waking up to some sunshine today but still not feeling confident enough for mesh or open toes, these slippers from Jones Bootmaker felt like the perfect compromise.
The other week, I went along to ogle their Autumn/Winter wares (and oh, how lovely they are) and while I was there, I got to pick a pair from their current collection. I've been avoiding slipper-type shoes all season on the belief that they made my cankles look worse but these don't seem to do that as they're cut a little higher on the top of the foot so they don't look as flat and non-existent as a lot of other styles.
You can get them [here] in the snake/taupe colour or in black suede [here].
Worn with: Grey skinnies, Topshop
