lace-up boots


There's no denying that boots are the ultimate wintertime wardrobe workhorse--but there's a time, actually right about now, when they just start to feel a bit Groundhog Day-ish! Enter the lace-up ankle bootie--executed so stylishly, so refreshingly, so alluringly on Paris-based fashion editor Capucine Safyurtlu, above. They even look sexy--and yet still manage to be workhorse-y! Particularly these options from Sezane, J.Crew, 10 Crosby Derek Lam (40% off), Steve Madden, Madewell, Sam Edelman, Fratelli Rossetti, and Saint Laurent (40% off!).

Hi Marlien! Have you ordered Sezane in to be sent to the US? I keep wanting to, but am curious to know how their sizing runs since a return would be pretty much impossible. Thanks and I really enjoy your blog.

Love the ones in the pic! Any idea where they are from?

I wish I knew who makes the pair Capucine is wearing, but I do believe they are from a past season. They're gorgeous! I have not ordered from Sezane but am tempted to! Since Madewell recently did a collaboration with Sezane, you might want to check with a Madewell salesperson, who should know how sizing runs.

How do you feel about lace-up boots with a wedge heel? I've always thought they looked too chunky/bulky with skinny pants - but I've seen them paired together a lot lately. I's love to know your opinion.
