Before Christmas, Junior Child and I were both sent a lovely pair of Victoria Plimsoll ankle boots from their Autumn Winter collection. And seeing as the holiday season was all about down time, we had plenty of opportunities to put our new footwear to the test.
JC renamed her Santana lace-ups “My Victoria boots” and wanted to wear them at every opportunity. Try telling a new-shoe obsessed seven year old that suede and rain don’t really go together – especially when there’s a lot of rain. I can’t say I blame her for taking to wearing them indoors too, especially when they have a fur lining.
I christened my Edita fur lined babies my down time boots – perfect for wearing with skinny jeans or with a cuffed casual trouser.
