Where has the summer gone?! And we were having such a good one, too. I did read somewhere that the UK has a mini monsoon season in August, so that certainly seems to be the case this year. But it does give you an excuse to start thinking about next season and subsequently…ankle boots!

To celebrate the launch of its own shoe line in the UK, Free People sent me this gorgeous pair of boots to shoot and I am very impressed. They’re a really cool design (if you heard me on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme – if not, click here – they’re the boots that Zandra Rhodes complimented me on!) and they’re extremely comfortable, too. They’re a cut-out design, so look brilliant with a flash of flesh in the late summer months, but also work really well with a pair of socks.

how I styled them

This pair comes in five different colours, and there are absolutely LOADS of lovely ankle boots available on the website. Free People, if you’re not familiar with it, is an American brand with a boho feel, which means the leather on the shoes often looks ready worn-in. I also love the way they are styled up for the pictures – it really give you a good idea of how they will look on. It stocks other brands as well as its own (though its own tend to be the cheaper ones), so there’s an absolutely massive selection. Here are a few of my favourite styles. Happy shopping…well, what else are you going to do during a monsoon?!
