I've included a couple of non-ankle boot designs - in fact the thigh high Louboutins are pretty much as far as it's possible to get from an ankle boot - just because when I saw them, they made me drool a little bit.

This is the rule of thumb: you can leave the house in your pyjamas if your footwear is good enough. It's not something that should be recommended, but it's entirely possible if your choice of shoe is of a certain quality.

Sarah McGiven

Being predominantly a trainer-wearer, I have super soft, easily irritated, coddled feet, so sandal shopping is a nightmare. I despise anything that goes between my toes so thongs and toe posts are a total no-go.

I guess I'm into shoes, then. I love a good heel. Although, I'm not so good at them. Samples sales have taught me that most often, scenarios involving my debit card and stilettos are to be avoided. You got me, I admit it. I've caved again, and again, and again.

Weekend Shopping: Kicks and Kiddy Shoes

Sarah McGiven | Posted 27.03.2013 | UK Style
Sarah McGiven

I love shoes. Shoes don't care how much Quality Street you ate over Christmas, the straps won't strain after a big dinner and they are so much easier than clothes to shop for as the sizes tend to be pretty standard across brands, with far less variation than you find in clothing.
