WIWT - Autumn Essentials

My Midlife Fashion, Lotus Shoes Jolanda tan leather ankle Boots


Morning ladies today I wanted to share with you a pair of boots that are going to be perfect for seeing me through the coming season that I've just received from Lotus Shoes.

As you may recall I started working with Lotus Shoes during the summer when they sent me a pair of sparkly sandals, which I first showcased on the blog here.  Having worn the sandals on numerous occasions during the summer & in particular on holiday in the heat & when walking a good 15 minute walk to & from the port I was really impressed with their durability & comfort - something I don't take too lightly when coping with sweltering conditions.  So I was delighted when they recently got in touch to see if I'd like to review a pair of their boots for the coming season.

Seeing as my wardrobe already contains the odd pair of heeled ankle boots I decided I would look at practical boots that are going to stand me in good stead for the colder weather that were also stylish  & warm enough to wear on long walks & that I won't feel like I'm wearing walking boots/wellies if we pop into the pub ;-)  And I think you'll agree these beauties fit the bill perfectly.

I just love the button detailing on the leather outers of these boots, not to mention the faux shearling lining meaning my tootsies are going to be very comfy & warm on even the coldest of days.  Plus they've even got a decent undergrip too so hopefully not slipsies if we've enjoyed the odd alcoholic beverage whilst out walking the dog :-)  And being a lovely neutral tan colour they will go with just about everything in my wardrobe.

In terms of sizing I went for my normal size & the boots are plenty big enough.  In fact I may even have been able to size down a size but as I generally wear a thick sock with this type of boot I think it may have been a little too tight.

And what better way to style them with some cosy cashmere & an old beloved blanket scarf.

Have a great day & I'll see you in the morning.

  1. The boots are just perfect. Lucky you. I can see you wearing them so much. Safely!
    They would be suitable for bigger calved girls (moi!) as the top of the boot misses the calf completely.
    You've styled the boots just perfectly. I love that stone jumper. Shame it's discontinued as I have been on a bit of a search for a not too thick longish stone jumper for a couple of years (yes, I am like a dog with a bone!) after seeing a casually stylish Swedish lady wearing one in Denmark. Oh, this us embarrassing, having typed that I remembered where I actually saw her. It was on a visit 5 years ago!! I do not give up once I get the bit between my teeth so can you help this clearly obsessive reader?!

    Sorry to have hogged the comments a tad today. I hope my transparency put a smile on your face and not a grimace, Jane!

    1. Oh my goodness Mary I'm so with you when I've got something particular in mind & won't give up until I track it down. Cue many hours spent googling searching & racking my brain but it's generally worth it!
      Glad to hear I'm not the only one & you've certainly put a smile on my face.
      Happy Monday lovely lady.

  3. Would these boots be good for extremely skinny legged girls?

    1. Hi I think you'd probably need to try them as it would depend on how fitted you wanted them to your legs etc but you can get a rough idea of the fit of them on my legs from the top picture. I've just checked & it's free delivery but you do have to pay for your returns. Although if you sign up to their newsletter there's 10% off your first order.
      I hope this helps.
