Outfit: Shoeper Challenge #72 and Jeggings







Grey ankle

These grey boots were bought for about £8 in Ethel Austin, just before it went into administration the first time. I had not come across Ethel Austin until I moved house 3.5 years ago as there are no stores near where I used to live. These boots are super comfy as they have very low heels. A testament to this is that I’ve walked so much in them that they are in need of reheeling. As are the pair I had on yesterday. A trip to the cobbler is definitely in order for tomorrow morning or next week.

So, on to the jeggings. When jeggings first appeared about 2 years ago, they were mostly jersey leggings, printed to look like denim. Nowadays, many pairs actually are denim and are more like skinny jeans with an elasticated waist. The pair I have on today even have back pockets and a watch pocket, and are made of stretch denim. But because the legs are so skinny they are ideal to tuck into boots and the elastic waistband means less bulk at the top as they don’t need a belt. I had to wash them before wearing as they are so overdyed they turned my hands blue when I tried them on in the shop.
