Ash Jalouse: Favourite Boots

I’ve been meaning to post about my Ash Jalouse boots for ages and decided to take a few pics today before they start looking too bashed up. I then noticed there’s currently 30% off Ash footwear at My Wardrobe, so thought it was a good time to share my thoughts. These boots get a lot of hype and I finally understand why… they’re super comfy and look just as good with jeans as they do with a skirt or dress. I love the leg-elongating dipped shape at the front, lowish wood effect heel and slouchy yet stylish shape. There are tonnes of dupes for these now, but once I have my heart set on something… you know how it is. I bought mine in Plumo’s Summer sale and am so glad I did.

Today I discovered how difficult it is to photograph yourself without a decent full length mirror - kudos to you fashion bloggers who do this all the time. Here’s some pics from different angles to give an idea how they look on…

I wore them today with Zara skinnies and my new Next poncho, which I initially bought for snuggling in at home but have become surgically attached to as it’s just so cosy! Happy days that we now have next day delivery in Northern Ireland for no additional cost (I discovered this while greeting a courier in my PJs after ordering at tea time the day before!). I also like to wear these boots with rolled up boyfriend jeans or my black Zara A-line leather skirt & Warehouse checked cape.

I digress… are you a fan of Ash Jalouse and do you think they’re worth the hype? Side note - I’ve been wearing these for a few months so they’re quite worn in. The sizing is fairly generous & wide-ish, but in my experience true - I’m wearing my usual size. If you're between sizes I'd go down one. 

I may have purchased a second pair of (completely different, honest!) boots in the Summer sales, yet to be worn… wanna see a post about those too?

Happy weekend everyone - am now off to pour myself a well earned glass of wine!

If you can’t find the boots in your size at My Wardrobe, they’re also available from Atterley, which has 30% off its Premium Edit (inc the Ash boots & some amazing coats) with the code PREMIUM30 here. My Next Fairisle Poncho is available here.
