Allow me to introduce you to my newest purchase: the Harriet boots by Folk. They were my birthday present to myself (you all buy a birthday present for yourself, right?) and I am in love with them. They look a bit like a desert boot, a lot like a moccasin, and are more comfortable than a pair of Nike Air Max.

This particular style also comes in brown (here) or neon pink (here), and Folk also has some even more moccasin-y boots – the Charlie – in the same shades.

Just when I thought Folk were the only ones making white moccasin hybrid boots, I stumbled across these by YMC. They feel a bit more Pocahontas with their fringing, and will require a fair amount of leather protection before wearing (as did my Folk boots; the Lamb’s Conduit store provided me with everything I needed) but will look very cute with a floral tea dress once (IF!!) the weather improves. They’re not available online just yet (I saw these in the press showroom) but should be very soon.

As I was wandering through SoHo planning this post, these final boots caught my eye. They were in the window of somewhere I don’t usually associate with stylish flat shoes: UGG. But how stylish are these?! And at just £65, they are the cheapest of the lot. I’m pleased this brand is putting more effort into summer footwear, and it’s doing a pretty good job so far.

Anyway, hope you all have a fantastic FOUR DAY WEEKEND! I’m off to drink lots of wine…

  1. Well they are very lovely indeed. As are the Ugg ones, which is a surprise. I’m in agreement re birthday presents for oneself. Who else knows exactly what it is that you want?!
