L’essence de Cab Calloway

Who would have thought Chelsea boots would come back into fashion? Chelsea Boots! As with all things fashion it was really only a matter of time before they came round again but they’re not an obvious choice for me because they’re just so plain. I had a pair when I was at school but given that these days I like my footwear to be a little more distinctive I’ve surprised myself with this purchase from Evans. Supercomfy. They’re cushioned inside so perfect for stomping around all day and I can already see that I’m going to wear them til they’re dead. I might even buy another pair so that when these have departed to the footwear afterlife I’ll have another pair ready to carry the mantle- yup, I like them that much. 

I like that they’re completely plain with no bells whistles or frills but if I did want to add some va va voom I could get some of these from Ashes & Empires on Etsy……

    The Boyfriend has a pair of Ben Sherman chelsea boots and I love them. They make every outfit – even just a tshirt and a pair of jeans – look so smart. He wears them everywhere and gets the heel and sole replaced when they’re getting a bit worn.

    I bought these very same boots yesterday.

    Super comfy, they will look great both with trousers and skirts, and they’re real leather (which is increasingly a rarity in Evans shoe department).

    Happy, happy.
