HELLO AUTUMN, OH I HAVE MISSED YOU

THIS POST HAS BEEN CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH SUPERBALIST.COM 


I have always lived my life according to the seasons. As soon as I feel those first chills of autumn on an early morning breeze, my soul comes alive. While many people live for summer, I am a child of autumn. Nothing makes me happier than donning a wooly cardi, pulling on a pair of boots and braving a gloomy day. When Superbalist.com approached me and asked if I would be keen to share my favourite products from their A/W footware collection, it took me minutes to reply with a roaring YES. Mostly because I love their brand and it wouldn’t be much work at all considering I already had a wishlist bursting with all the wonderful warm things currently listed on their site.



For me, autumn and winter will always be synonymous with a classic pair of boots and bright, statement sneakers. I usually tend to go for black or grey clothing during the colder months, so my shoes hold the heavy job of communicating my personality.

While browsing the Superbalist.com site, it is almost impossible to choose just a few pairs in each category, but because I am working towards putting together my very first capsule wardrobe, I felt up for the challenge. So without any more fanfare, here are my top pics for sneakers and boots and a few ideas on how to style them.

SNEAKERS


Regardless of how you would describe your personal style, there is absolutely no denying that sneakers are THE MOST comfortable shoes ever.  Thanks to the rise of the normcore and athleisure trends, they are now also an acceptable choice for most offices and outings. During the cold winter months, my main priority will always be comfort, but comfort doesn’t mean foregoing style.

As difficult as it is to pick just a few sneakers from the entire range available on Superbalist.com, I think any of the 3 below would do wonders in any girls winter wardrobe:



EASY WAYS TO STYLE YOUR SNEAKERS THIS WINTER


  1. Pair them with a bright, chunky knit and rolled up denims.
  2. Brighten up drab winter wear with bright sneakers – think greys and blacks paired with brushed silvers, beautiful pastels or bold pinks.
  3. Don’t be afraid to pair maxi skirts with knits and sneakers

BOOTS


I have always struggled to find boots for winter. All I want is the perfect pair of boots to wear with almost any outfit. In winter I am most versatile and often switch between dresses and skirts and pants all week long. I love wearing dresses with stockings and boots and to find that one elusive pair of boots that moves easily between a pair of jeans and dress is basically my life’s greatest work. Wearing the right pair of boots will finish off any winter outfit. At this point I need to mention that I don’t wear long boots. I am an ankle boots girl FOR LIFE. I will take them in whatever forms works on me, but I will not entertain a pair of boots that goes higher than just above my ankle. Again, it was quite tough to chose just a few, but I went with 2 very versatile options, one black and one brown and then I just went straight queen and chose a full-on glitter option because, why not. Here 3 must-have ankle boots from Superbalist.com:



EASY WAYS TO STYLE ANKLE BOOTS THIS WINTER


  1. Tuck your tights into your boots and pair it with a slouchy tee and an over-sezed denim shirt.
  2. Roll those jeans up and show off those boots.
  3. Get a nice cozy pair of socks and layer them over your leggings. Yes, you heard me right, layer those bad boys OVER the leggings.
  4. Throw on a dress, some thick, opaque tights and your favourite pair of boots.
