Okay I have to hold my hands up and say I’ve been a shit blogger the past few weeks. At least that’s true of the blog part anyway; if I’m totally honest I have been busy starting my training for next year’s triathlon season (my first!) and in what spare time I have I’ve been focussing on growing my Instagram and my Youtube channel. Not only that but we’ve had some pretty awful weather the past few weekends making it very difficult to get outfit shots.
Anyway, I don’t want to make excuses I just want to do what I can, it’s my blog after all and I guess if I don’t want to stress about always having to churn out content – I want it to be of a good quality and not just anything.
I am thinking of adding more beauty to the blog, what do you think? I’ve put reviews on before but they’re not usually as popular as the fashion posts. Let me know, there’s one coming up and they’re good to have as back up when the winter weather is bad and I can’t get out and shoot looks.
Right, let’s get to the post. I’m kinda loving the boots under jeans trend right now; I uummed and ahhed a bit because I felt it would make my short legs look even shorter but I actually think it kind of does the opposite and I’m really liking it. So here are my tips to pulling it off…
#1. Choose sock boots
The boot choice is really important. Having a pointy toe and ankle hugging fabric means that you can really emphasise the trend. These sock boots from Zara go perfectly and the heel is quite unique too popping out under the jeans. I think the point is really essential too as it is more leg lengthening and really contrasts the jeans.
#2. Wear cropped jeans
Well they don’t have to be quite ‘cropped’ but certainly not full length – it just doesn’t emphasise what you’re trying to accomplish enough and can look like just a fashion mishap. I picked these Asos Farleigh jeans and snipped the ends off to give a rough edge – again really emphasising the ankle.
#3. Colour choice is up to you
Personally I love black but I also think a patent red or white boot could work really well too – or even the Stella snakeskin pattern we’ve been seeing all over fashion week. The boots should be statement and that’s easily accomplished with a playful design.
