Are your boots made for walking?

All the rain last week has meant I have had to pull out the old ankle boots (or booties as they call them in the US). I LOVE ankle boots! If it weren't for my crazy, running around, chasing-my-tail lifestyle, I would definitely be wearing a heeled version everyday - anything to appear longer and leaner! But I have to admit that more often than not, I find myself reaching for the fast and flat pairs in my wardrobe... My all time favourite flat has to be the Susanna by Chloé, but they are destined to remain on my forever wishlist...

A pair of black ankle boots can be stylish for any and every occasion - add them to a dress or skirt to make your outfit more edgy, less formal.

Or if you are flying off for Christmas, wear them with your fancy joggers and tee for comfort and style.

I am sure you don't need any convincing on how great ankle boots look with jeans?

So what is out there in the shops for you to buy right now? Below is a little selection of flat, black ankle boots to help keep you stylish and able to manically race around in the Silly Season...
