15 REASONS FOR FROZEN ANKLES
In a world where there are many, many things to be worried about, my frozen ankles, weirdly seem to be a real cause for concern. If I had a fiver for every time I was asked “Aren’t your feet freezing?” I would happily be sliding them into a box-fresh pair of gold Gucci Marmont loafers by now. Wishful thinking, innit?!
Nah seriously – the worry is real! Mainly, it comes from Mr Husband who just eye-rolls at my sartorial understanding of the words ‘practical’ and ‘waterproof’. It’s a far cry from his definition, as he layers himself up in his The North Face fleece, Thinsulate beanie and zips up his Finisterre jacket as he proudly wangs on about there being no such thing as bad weather, just bad dressing.
He’s actually bang on to wang on – but come on, I’m a stubborn Leo, innit! *Puts on ripped jeans, lightweight duster coat and a pair of pumps, even in winter!
And recently too, there’s also been a flurry of “Your feet must be FREEZING!” messages via Instagram anytime I post a #schoolrunstyle picture in my Stories. Then when I arrive at the school gate, the sight of my bare ankles in a pair of ballet pumps or midi heels in the bleak mid winter is often met with a…
“Faaaarrrk! Your poor feet, F.T!”
Without sounding like I’m on the defensive, I honestly don’t feel the cold – or at least I’ve convinced myself in the name of pretty shoes that my priorities lie with them and not the weather.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for the concern and I truly love a sheep-skin lined boot as much as you do! And while I’m totally on board with Team Socks & Shoes, let’s be honest, this IS a tricky look to get right.
GAH! What can I say?
I just LOVE throwing a bare foot into a beautiful shoe!
And if you don’t believe me, then I’m sharing with you my favourite feet treats that I’ve currently got my eye on. From an affordable pair of what I can actually call ‘flesh’ coloured pumps (YASSSSSSS!) to the salivate-’cause-they’re-so-stylish designer slingbacks…
