Sunday Shoes 106..

These Blair Elfglow boots have been waiting in the wings for a little while now. I seem to have had something of a glut of new pairs of shoes to talk about, and the #IrregularAlice ones seemed to jump the queue when they arrived.

But, finally I can focus on the blue and yellow loveliness of these boots. I'd consider the shape of these to be what comes to mind when I think of traditional ankle boots and my favourite feature is the faux button effect on the scalloped side of the boots - very reminiscent of the Victoriana buttoned boots, which was always the kind of feature Mother would go for on our school shoes (although obviously black, not these colours).

I love the ribbon ties at the fronts of these boots; they're just for show as the boots fasten with a zip on the inner side. And can we just focus on the wonderful mix of patterns and the kind of magical way that even though they're a total patchworky mixture, it all works so fabulously well together that they *still* manage to look like one of Irregular Choice's more understated designs. How? I can only assume it's witchcraft, but I totally approve.

  1. I love Blair Elfglow! I would totally buy a pair if they were lower. I have two pairs of Poetic License shoes with the ribbon laces and I really like them but these with the buttons and florals are just magical!

  3. Haha, I know, I agree, they are understated compared to other IC. I've always adored the name of these, I wish I'd got a pair of the ones that came out last winter, I loved the turquoise.

    1. They're so pretty and definitely a pair I'll get a lot of wear from.
