What I Wore: Rainy Summer & Shoe Boots.



               
  
Shoes: ECCO Sculptured 65 Low Cut Lace BootCardigan: H&M.
Leggings: Primark. Nail Polish: Beauty UK Fuchsia. Belt: Vintage shop.

Apologies for the super overcast photographs, the great British weather let me down, but it did give me the perfect opportunity to wear the newest addition to my shoe collection, the Sculptured 65 Low Cut Lace Boot from ECCO. These are unlike any shoes I have owned previously but I was really intrigued by their 'combining style with comfort' tag line. I had little booties that were a similar shape when I was small, minus the heel, and I just adored them. I remember when I first got them I refused to take them off for the whole day and I tried my hardest not to scuff them for months whenever I wore them outside. So these have a little bit of nostalgia attached to them & many happy memories!

There seem to be a few different styles, from shoes to knee high boots, in the new ECCO Sculptured 65 range, these are the Low Cut Lace Boot and I have to say, they are so so comfortable. They feel like they really form to the foot and even though these have a heel, I find them super easy to walk in which is coming from someone that never ever wears shoes with a heel usually! They're super soft and almost give you an added spring in your step remaining comfortable all day long. I really like the whole shoe boot look and I think these are such a versatile piece, suitable for so many different occasions.

I knew immediately I wanted to contrast the patent, quite structured shoe boot with a soft floral and super girlie dress while keeping the colour palette really neutral, letting the print and high shine black do all the work. This is one of my favourite dresses to wear in the cooler weather, it's a really lovely light material with a loose and comfortable fit. The contrast between such a light dress with a sweet print and the high shine boots is something I really adore. It's girlie with a little bit of added edge. To give the dress a bit of shape I added a waist belt with shiny black enamel detailing, which keeps continuity throughout the whole outfit without being too matchy matchy, I hope!

I'm loving simple outfits right now and most importantly, comfortable outfits. There's nothing worse than half way through the day feeling hot and bothered or having aching feet. Even after a long day wandering around the shops this afternoon I felt cool, chic and sophisticated in this outfit.

    How would you style these shoe boots?
    I think they're such a versatile piece & I would really love to know your ideas to get some more inspiration!

  7. I adore the shoe boots. I would probably style them with black tights, my leopard print skater dress from Topshop and perhaps a leather jacket. Or some skinny jeans and a floaty blouse :D

  14. I love those shoes, I went on the website straight after reading this and found some non-patent, blue ones but they didn't seem to have any links to buy them :(
    I'll have to wait I guess. They're really nice, I can see what you mean about the nostalgia side (I think I had some when I was around 9). I wouldn't normally associate Ecco with shoes like these, but I've changed my mind :)
