What I Wore: ASOS Railton Ankle Boots

I have such a love-hate relationship with ankle boots. Finding the right ones (the ones that don't make my legs look like tree trunks and cut me off without an ankle) is so hard. For a while I resigned myself to just not being able to wear them at all, but with a bit of work I have found one or two pairs that work for me. These are shiny new ankle boots from the ASOS sale and I think not bad for £21 (still in stock in everything but a size 6 by the looks of things).

So they sit much lower on the foot than most, which I need as I have chubby ankles and my legs are quite muscular because that's where I hold most of my power for running and cycling. It's unusual for me to find there's much room around the ankle, but I seem to manage it in these, which is nice as it makes those chubster ankles look slightly more delicate!


I like the point in the toe for a bit of elegance and the contrast heel is nice for a more casual look. They're super comfy but one word of warning- the soles are smooth so a wet day is not an idea first wear! 

All in all, a good find, which is nice because they're the only one of 7 pairs of shoes I ordered in the sale that fit- what is it with TOMS shoes btw? I tried 2 difference sizes but still couldn't get them to fit, which is a shame because they would be perfect for the holiday I have planned in March. 

So yeah. Ankle boots. And yes, my hair is getting steadily shorter! I love it and looking back on pictures from 2015 made me wonder why I didn't do it sooner.
